The install script is Debian based. HAMVOIP is ARCH. I doubt it works.

In general this is how it will look I am going to assume you want to connect to BrandMeister. This is a simple bridge, the components will change is you need more features.

BM <-> MMDVM_Bridge <-> Analog_Bridge <-> AllStarLink.

This can run on the same host as the AllStarLink node or on a separate host if the HAMVOIP node can not handle it.

Re: A brief how to, please

TG9AOR
 

Thank you, Steve, for your reply. I am interested in bridging  my Echolink node and BM DMRTG704. I would like to know if I would be able to link the conference created by your software to another node apart from mine (ie Node 654905). This would bridge the analog and digital system currently in place in Guatemala together.

Once I am able to get that going I would then be interested in looking at the NXDN reflector, but that is for later.

You guys have inspired me to learn Python, as G4KLX inspired me to learn Linux. All good examples, I thank you for that, as many others have stated in their posts.

your problem is fixed.
apt-get update

All applications and config files are installed in /opt as in /opt/Analog_Bridge

Also, what folder are the config files in?

I'm running on Raspian Stretch

Re: A brief how to, please

José,
Yes, to say the least the documentation has not kept up with the programs. My repository for Analog_Bridge was also behind. I have updated that. The install is using Debian apt and the instructions are here:
<https://dvswitch.groups.io/g/main/topic/updated_dvswitch_repository/18971786?p=,,,20,0,0,0::recentpostdate%2Fsticky,,,20,2,0,18971786>

Can you give us a better idea of what you are trying to do and we can help you get the right software.

If I want to make my own network, and  link my DVMega MMDVM and be able to listen to BrandMeister and Echolink and Allstar, what repos do I need to clone?

I have noticed some commands from N4IRS regarding git and the branches but since they were in response to other threads I just want to be sure what to download. I would then proceed to look over at the config files to fill in the blanks, and then post a question if I get stuck.

I have an Rpi3 with a DV3000u for this project.

Re: New to this group - Interested in DMR to analog linking.

Veijo Arponen OH4VA
 

Hei,

I'm a Unix/Linux guy but today I managed build a system which cross-links a BrandMeister talk group to TeamSpeak3 at IRN and EchoLink node OH3NFC-L. The hardware I'm using is a laptop runninng Windows 10 and ThumbDV which takes care of the AMBE coding.

The applications are:
- TS3 Client 32 bit with TS-Gateway Commander addon
- EchoLink client running in sysop mode
- com0com with hub4com
- A free virtual audio cable (one channel)

The trickiest part was the RX/TX-control without any VOX operated linking applications
