Re: Bridging from MMDVM repeater to IPSC network

Rob WX1N
 

Steve,
In the DMR link configuration, I'm signing in to 3102 as the repeater ID, which has several static TG's preconfigured. I'm transmitting using my personal ID, on one of the static TG's (although if I were using a different TG, wouldn't it bring it up as a dynamic for a few minutes?)

Rob,
Is 3102 setup to bridge the TG you are trying from the Radio ID you are presenting to BM?

I'm hoping for some basic info if one of you has the time to point me in the right direction. I know this is still a work in progress and I don't want to interfere with that, so if this isn't a quick answer, then please disregard.

I'm playing around with the new Bridge branches of HBlink and DMRlink. I wanted to see if I could successfully connect an MMDVM repeater to an IPSC network. I set it up as follows: MMDVM set to connect to local instance of HBlink (successful). HBlink configuration as a master to allow MMDVM to connect. Run MMDVMHost, run HB_Bridge.py. DMRlink configured as a peer to connect to the IPSC connection of 3102. Run IPSC_Bridge.py.
Results - MMDVM connects to HBlink and transmissions show in both HB_Bridge and IPSC_Bridge terminal windows, however, the transmissions don't seem to be making it through to the network. I think I am connected to 3102, as the repeater shows up in the 3102 status page (albeit as a SmartPTT network).

Does anyone have a guess as to where I'm going wrong?

Re: Analog_Bridge for the Raspberry Pi

Steve N4IRS
 

I hope it will be a short delay. Once we have a validation program, we will know more. One of the options we are considering is to change the RPi version of Analog_bridge WITHOUT support for USB. It would be AMBEserver only.
Once we have the validation program I will test on other ARM based systems. OrangePi, NanoPi, Odroid etc.

It's actually specific to the ThumbDv (DV3000u) It may well be power. The existing initialization code follows the NWDigital spec but does not prove actual valid data to and from the Vocoder.
As a note, we are not seeing the problem with the GPIO based Vocoder. I'll follow up as we know more.

Analog_Bridge for the Raspberry Pi

Steve N4IRS
 

Due to ongoing issues with the DV3000 and the Raspberry Pi, I have removed Analog_Bridge for the Pi from the repository. 


Re: Preparing to Build

Steve N4IRS
 

They are close enough. At some point I will edit.We are testing the DV3000u on a Pi with mixed results. Mike is building a validation program. As of right now, the DV3000u is not supported on the Pi.

What hardware/computer are you running the Analog_Bridge on?  Is the DV3000 connected locally or is it on an AMBE server?
We have seen that the DV3000 is very sensitive to power from the USB port and looking to see if yours is producing proper voltage levels.

Hi all,

I'd like to try connecting our Asterisk network with our D-Star network, in a way that would remain compatible with future "DVSwitch".

Is the source code of Analog_Bridge available ?
