You might work out a dual system. 2 instances of hb linked. Either on 2 hosts or multiple IPs.

I am having trouble with it passing audio to and from BM.
I am running into a port issue I think.
Since BM wants to see the HBlink (mmdvm) coming in on port 62031 and everyone's hot spots use 62301, I'm not sure what to do.
I would like for the hot spot users to not have to change their ports and firewall rules that com in the pi-star image.

Any suggestions?

Yes it can be a server and a client. (Master and Peer) at the same time.

Steve,
Shouldn't HBlink be able to be a master for mmdvm repeaters and hotspots and also be able to connect to BM at the same time without any other modules?
Or do I need to load another module in addition?

To be a little more clear and the BM guys can chime in.

You can use any DMR ID assigned to YOU. Not just make up any TG number.

Jerry,
No, anyone can use a TG. It's just the TG number itself that is the same as your DMR ID. If you get on your DMR HT and key up on TG 3112138 (my ID) anyone else can use that TG to communicate. What we are saying is that you do not need a TG number assigned by BM. You can use YOUR ID as a TG number.

I'm finally getting back to setting up a master server for our repeaters and hot spots.
I have asked many questions and have received a lot of great answers.

Since it has been a while and I know the development here moves quite quickly,
Is there a new way to load the package I need since my old posts? I have been reading back over them to give it another shot.

The info I have is to apt get the HB Link set.

Re: Looking for a better way to bridge YSF to DMR

Steve N4IRS
 

I setup a test bridge for Gary so that they could test a DVSwitch DMR <-> YSFn bridge to see if they had the same issues, looping and audio level mismatch. I have to say I don't see how a bridge could cause the looping.
A DMR <-> YSF bridge is the absolute simplest you can build with DVSwitch. It is simply one instance of MMDVM_Bridge. The DMR points to their target BM TG and the YSFn points to their reflector. No Gateways, no transcoding. This is simply AMBE to AMBE. We are seeing a difference in audio levels. Some DMR stations are louder to YSFn listeners and YSFn stations are quieter to DMR listeners. We think this is a difference in the setup of a DMR radio versus a Yaesu radio.

Mike N4IRR has some comments on audio levels between the two modes and he is planning a writeup for the wiki. We also discussed the possibility of allowing adjusting the audio level in this type of bridge. Plans are in the works for a proof of concept over the next week or so.
