Re: RF to RF bridge

Steve N4IRS
 

We just installed a WiresX <-> DMR <-> YSF bridge here in FL and we have no delay. Don't know what to tell ya. But I'm kinda new at this.
Only thing I can suggest is a back to back radio connection. Take the recovered audio from the DMR Radio and feed the Yaesu radio transmitter and vice versa.
I don't how you would do the COS/PTT

Pi-Star to Pi-Star, probably not. Pi-Star is designed from the ground up to talk to existing networks, and from what I've seen there's no 'easy' way of making two Pi-Star hotspots talk to each other in that fashion. Even going from mode to mode on Pi-Star (say, DMR radio to a YSF reflector) uses the MMDVM_CM tools, if I recall correctly.

Openspot has a hotspot-to-hotspot mode, but I believe it's limited to only passing same-mode traffic, like DMR to DMR. Having not done this myself, this is limited to speculation.

If you've got two Pi-Star hotspots already, you could have both of them connect to a central 'server' locally, running something like HBlink3. Connect one as a DMR hotspot to the HBlink master and the other hotspot as a DMR2YSF hotspot to the HBlink master. Kind of like this:

Pi-Star (DMR) <-> HBlink3 Master (Local) <-> Pi-Star (DMR2YSF)

This kind of setup I would consider an 'advanced' configuration, but I think it could work.

Going back on what Steve N4IRS said, where are you experiencing up to an 8 second delay on the Internet? Unless you're using dial-up or you're on the furthest reaches of a DSL line, I can't say I've seen latency that high in a long time.

Neil,

I don’t understand what you are trying to link to what. Where are you seeing a 8 second delay linking DMR to YSF?

Is there a way to make a RF to RF bridge without using the internet to crossmode between DMR and YSF? Can I link two PiStar setups locally without suffering internet latency ? Is it possible to use some other hardware to pull this off? Using the internet delays of up 8 seconds have been found. This makes the internet unreliable. The DMR side would be in my hamshack while the YSF side is reachable on very low power RF. This would save the needs to buy multiple radios for one YSF repeater.

MMDVM_Bridge is the program that connects to BrandMeister. Let’s check it’s status:

systemctl status mmdvm_bridge

 

root@repeater:/etc/asterisk# systemctl status mmdvm_bridge

● mmdvm_bridge.service - MMDVM_Bridge Service

   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/mmdvm_bridge.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

   Active: inactive (dead)

You will see the status of the mmdvm_bridge service

 

Good, MMDVM_Bridge is not running though it is enabled, meaning it will start at boot.

 

Change directory to /opt/MMDVM_Bridge

cd /opt/MMDVM_Bridge ß-----------------------------------------------

 

Let’s see what files are in the directory /opt/MMDVM_Bridge 

ls

 

root@repeater:/etc/asterisk# cd /opt/MMDVM_Bridge/

root@repeater:/opt/MMDVM_Bridge# ls

DVSwitch.ini  MMDVM_Bridge  MMDVM_Bridge.ini

root@repeater:/opt/MMDVM_Bridge#

You will see the program and it’s two configuration files.

I'm entering that at the root level and it just says: 

bash: ./MMDVM_Bridge: No such file or directory.

 

Maybe I'm at the wrong level?

It is the netx line in the document.

Time to test

Run MMDVM_Bridge in the foreground

./MMDVM_Bridge MMDVM_Bridge.ini

No, the ports do not need to be forwarded.

Re: HBmonitor and XLXPEERS support

Steve KC1AWV
 

I'm continuing work on HBmonitor3 - a Python 3 port of the original N0MJS HBmonitor.

The last bit that I worked on and seems to be hanging me up is dict.iteritems() is no longer in Python 3. According to some Google-foo and a Stack Overflow article, dict.items() in Python 3 does not have the same functionality that dict.iteritems() did.
view object isn't the same as iterator, so if you want to return an iterator in Py3.x, you could use iter(dictview)
This is the next hurdle. I'll be updating code as I have time available. If you want to collaborate on this effort with me, please submit code as a pull request on the github repository, found here: https://github.com/kc1awv/HBmonitor3
