Re: Hotspot Audio for C4FM Very loud and distorted.
Are you running USRPGain and TLVGain at unity? I've found it
helps a lot to turn TLVGain down quite a bit in Analog_Bridge.ini.
TLV is the gain sent from analog to digital. This will reduce the
gain to DMR from analog. More headroom isn't necessarily bad,
though you'll find that audio to your Yaesu is probably still
louder than with a DMR radio. I'm not a Yaesu-using person myself,
though I did just order an FT70 to play with, so I don't know
exactly why these differences in levels between DMR and C4FM
radios are what they are when everyone is using the same codec.
I'll let someone better qualified explain that.
Here's how I have my TLV gain set:
tlvAudio = AUDIO_USE_GAIN ; Analog -> Digital
(AUDIO_UNITY, AUDIO_USE_GAIN, AUDIO_BPF)
When playing with things a month or so ago, I was told that, on
my bridge, digital to digital (person A on DMR radio and person B
on a Yaesu) sounded OK, but audio from analog was too hot on C4FM,
but OK on analog, so I turned down the TLVGain a little. I don't
really know a better way to handle that situation. Note that in my
case, DVSwitch is not involved in making the connection between
DMR and YSF. I got the same results when using DVSwitch instead,
And for USRPGain, I'm using AGC, with the threshold a little higher than in the default configuration. This is personal preference, but I find it works pretty well on my bridge.
usrpAudio = AUDIO_USE_AGC ; Digital -> Analog
(AUDIO_UNITY, AUDIO_USE_GAIN, AUDIO_USE_AGC)
