Thanks Steve. Looks simple enough. I'll have to look in to the console app. Now if I can just get a response on the purchase of an MMDVM.


Re: HBlink and DMRlink in "production"

Your configuration will look like this:

MMDVM <---> HB_Bridge <---> IPSC_Bridge <---> XPR Repeater

There is a console application built with Analog_Bridge that could be used to with this.

You will want HBBidge and not hblink.

Sounds good.. so I will be running hblink to connect to the MMDVM Repeater connect hblink to ipscbridge which in turn connects to the XPR.

On another note... is there any PTT, or console type capabilities with any of these platforms?

HBlink is only for the MMDVM DMR protocol only. As of now, there is no simple way to connect 2 MMDVM P25 repeaters.

Steve - you will need to run the IPSC_Bridge and HB_Bridge branches of the respective DMRLink and HBLink repositories to do this.  If you understand how to start/stop python scripts and read through the configuration it's fairly straightforward.

I am also trying to do something similar to Nicola. I would like to link one MMDVM Repeater with one XPR8300 repeater. I believe this should be fairly simple to do. I have not started to dive in to the software yet as I am still trying to get an MMDVM. I have not had much luck getting a reply on purchasing one.

Are there any guides out for this? I am very comfortable with networking. I have read pretty much all of the readme files. Just looking for the starting place.

​Will HBlink work to link 2 P25 mmdvm repeaters or just dmr?

The short answer is, yes you can. If all you are trying to do is link 3 MMDVM repeaters together, it's quite easy. Is that all you are trying to do?

Hi, I m very new with DMR, I want connect 3 x MMDVM repeaters, can I use HBlink ? I have intranet with ptp 5 ghz.
I would to like to learn more ) 
Thank you in advanced


Re: Analog_Bridge gain

JJ Cummings
 

Well I haven’t made them yet, I was going to properly integrate the reading of the [DEFAULT] section in HB_Bridge today.  Incidentally I’m using AUDIO_USE_AGC for DMR -> ASL and it’s working well...

I also see that the DMR->ASL AUDIO_USE_GAIN was fixed at 2.0.  This has now been updated as well.

Analog_Bridge gain

JJ Cummings
 

Some quick questions regarding analog bridge and gain (types)/values.   I have the Analog_Bridge up and running well and have been able to configure the AGC value to facilitate pretty decent levels from DMR -> Analog.  On the Analog -> DMR side of things however I have been unable to see any real change in audio level (it's presently too high from Analog) by adjusting the following values.  I'm curious what dmrAudio value is the best and then the dmrGain value 0 to 1 does not seem to make a difference?  

dmrAudio = AUDIO_UNITY ; Audio from ASL (AUDIO_UNITY, AUDIO_GAIN, AUDIO_BPF)
dmrGain = 0.35 ; Gain factor of audio from ASL (0.0-1.0)

Is there a place that I can read about the different dmrAudio values to understand what their differences/benefits etc are?

It's been quiet for a while, so I guess it's time for a update in no real order.
Analog_Bridge is getting another refactor. Some functions are being pushed out to external programs or libraries. This should help reduce the number of times it will have to be visited.
The serial routines that talk to locally connected Vocoders is being looked at.
Native support for Vocoders other the NWDigital ThumDB.
More descriptive and consistent naming of variables in Analog_Bridge.ini
I have setup a Debian repository for AllStarLink. I will be adding analog_bridge and other programs to the repository. This will allow for apt-get install Analog_Bridge...

HB_Bridge and IPSC_Bridge are being merged into their respective Master repositories. This will simplify installation and support.
Both HB_Bridge and IPSC_Bridge are getting a few bug fixes (ongoing)
Fixes for HB_Parrot
Changes for communications with servers other the BM to be implemented.

Additional Partners will be available: These bridges are going to go through changes over time. The method used to connect to external networks (P-25, YSF and D-Star) will change.
P25_Bridge
YSF_Bridge 
D-Star Bridge
These bridges are going to go through changes over time. The method used to connect to external networks (P-25, YSF and D-Star) will change.

I have added a couple of simple documents in the file section. These should help people understand how to configure communications between partners. I will convert them to PDF next week.
