Re: DStar on DV Switch Mobile

Patrick Perdue
 

Not in the context of DVSM, but I ran a remote AMBEserver for Analog_Bridge for a while, ran into some problems and eventually scrapped it for md380emu, since I didn't care about DStar. My DStar bridge is strictly done with XLX and a pair of AMBE dongles, and I don't need outbound connectivity to DStar reflectors in my setup.

At the time, my AMBEserver running on a Pi was a good solid 2 to 3 ms ping from the VPS running DVSwitch. The datacenter was practically in my backyard. While it did work reliably sometimes, it would randomly drop, or have huge gaps between audio packets, so I eventually just gave it up as a bad job. Running Analog_Bridge and AMBEserver locally, or using the dongle directly connected to Analog_Bridge through /dev/ttyUSB0 worked fine, but I always had various problems using AMBEserver remotely with Analog_Bridge, at least when connecting back to Allstar. The network path was about as good as I could hope for, considering it was a remote connection to AMBEserver.

Has anyone been able to get a remote AMBEserver working with DVSwitch running on a cloud server? I have an AMBEserver sitting on a RPi at my home and DVSwitch running on a cloud server. Made appropriate (?) changes to AB.ini but can’t seem to make the combination work. Advice?

You can try to run the script again but I think you will get errors. I would burn a fresh SD card.

Derek,
It should be fixed now. You will have to start over from scratch. Sorry
I can tell you that the System-Builder is getting a rewrite in the not to distant future.

Re: PTT button solution

I was going to suggest a selfie stick button, not sure if that is the same or different to what you are using?


PTT button solution

F1JMJ Joël
 

Hello,

The DVSWITCH app is great. But there is the problem in the car with the PTT. In many countries, touching the phone while driving is punishable by law. Currently I use a bluetooth button for the PTT which is intended to take a picture with the telephone (code 24), but after a few uses the phone goes into alarm mode and I have to restart the phone. Is there a viable solution to this problem or a real alternative for PTT with a classic mobile phone with a Zello-like PTT button that works well with DVSWITCH ? Thank you for your answers.

The settings for MMDVM_Bridge are defined in DVSwitch.ini. UDP

Re: Where are the Host files stored?

Steve N4IRS
 

Yes,
Over time we standardized file name locations etc. The .ini files tell you were to find the host files and data files.

Steve,

My bridges have been working fine for a year or more.  I have no "/var/lib/mmdvm" directory.

I'm guessing you've updated the kit and files are now in different places?

I would recommend using the Ambe server with the DV dongle.

I could not get the DVSwitch to connect to the dongle via USB.

I will bear that in mind in future.

For those of us using email, this message is a waste of bandwidth,
reposting would have made more sense, so we could see the original query

Yes, D-STAR requires a hardware vocoder, because there are no decent
software vocoders for that audio format.  I tried D-STAR in DroidStar
once, where there was no hardware option, and the audio was very poor,
practically unreadable.  You _can_ enable the software vocoder in
Analog_Bridge, but not recommended.  As one set of instructions put it -
"You won't like the result".

Normally, D-STAR would be setup with an AMBE3000 device, either on the
DVSwitch host or via an AMBEServer.  On my multimode gateway, I had an
original DV Dongle lying around doing nothing, so I used ircDDBGateway
and DummyRepeater to do the transcoding, since DummyRepeater supports
the DV Dongle hardware.

Yes. Yes. In all the codecs. It does the same distortion.

I would also like to know how to install DV switch with the latest RPI image on the Allstar download from the Allstar site it seems like the documentation that I'm finding is not consistent with the install process is there a current update on the procedure that is readable not graphic as I am blind thank you.
