Hi Ken,

We do that for XLX725, for example - it seems to be pretty reliable, at least with the services we use....    

Are you using the following setup for linking ASL with XLX using D-Star ?
Asterisk <-> chan_USRP <-> Analog_Bridge <-> MMDVM_Bridge <-> ircddbgatewayd <-> XLX

Tht's what I'm trying to do, with hardware AMBE encoder (AMBEServer on rPi with a ThumbDV), but it seems I'm still missing something :

When talking in D-Star on XLX, I can see on MMDVM_Bridge :

And when talking on the analog side, lots of

but no voice at all, and gateway callsign not heard on the XLX side.

In both cases, ircddbgateway does not seem to be much verbose. I didn't manage to get anything in the log after that :

M: 2019-01-14 20:02:06: Starting the Callsign Server thread

As most of the setups seem to be using DMR, and as my XLX has AMBE transcoding, I may have a try in DMR mode (with DMRGateway instead of ircddbgateway). But before doing that, I'd like to know if the D-Star setup described above works.

Thank you in advance. 73 de TK1BI
