Hi All,

I am trying to run MMDVM_Bridge, Analog_Bridge etc in Docker to make my bridge a little more portable. If I actually get it working nicely I'll endeavour make it public.

By default docker writes the output to STDOUT and STDERR to the log, however with Analog_Bridge most of the output is missing. I've tried redirecting STD* to no avail. Please see the attached image - only the lines in red (STDERR) are included in the Docker logs.

I've done some googling and one theory is the process is writing directly to the TTY rather than STDOUT / STDERR

When someone gets a moment could they take a look at the code and confirm how these lines are being displayed?

Also whilst I'm here I was wondering if you could confirm if Analog_Bridge, MMDVM_Bridge etc support DNS?

at their Chicago datacenter for $12.50/year with a 1st year $2.50 discount.

For fun, I got the above configuration. I do not have any DVSwitch projects yet, so as an experiment I configured a LEMP (Linux, nginx, MySQL, PHP) server with WordPress. While DV servers work fine using the IP address, web servers are better with a domain name, so I got a free one from FreeNom. It all works for $10 for the 1st year:

Re: Update Binaries?

Steve N4IRS
 

dvswitch.sh has been getting update as we find the need to add features. I have been updating the binaries as we prepare for new features. Updating the binaries does just that, replace MB and AB mostly. In the future you won't use that procedure to upgrade.

Re: Cloud hosting

 

I was under the impression the Micro plan is $12.50 a year. We got the discount so it was $10 for the first year then 12.50 a year after that.... I hope I read that right?
still a fantastic deal at $12.50 a year... :)

FCS to DMR bridge Network watchdog has expired error message

David Young
 

Created a DVSwitch bridge between FCS room and DMR and am showing in the MMDVM log after each FCS fusion transmission Network Watchdog Timeout error message.  The bridge seems to work normally as audio transmissions between the FCS room and DMR talk group continue.  The problem this seems to cause is that I also have another DVSwitch bridge from an NXDN reflector to the same DMR talk group.  When I transmit from a fusion radio to the FCS room the bridge to DMR and then onto NXDN works, but because the NXDN bridge sees the network watchdog timeout for some reason it stops bridging back to DMR.  If I transmit to the DMR talk group with a DMR radio then this seems to clear the NXDN bridge from not bridging and it starts bridging again until it sees another network watchdog timeout from the FCS bridge. 
I have tried changing ports in both the YSFGateway.ini file and also the MMDVM_Bridge.ini file, but I cannot stop these network watchdog timeout errors which are stopping my NXDN to DMR bridging.  I am thinking this network watchdog timeout error is being generated by DVSwitch but cannot figure out how to prevent it.
Any help would be appreciated.  Attached are my working *.ini files.

Can you give more details of your setup?  Muffled analog audio can have
many causes, from microphone to anything in the chain between the
microphone and Analog_Bridge.  Is there any RF involved?  Or is this a
DVSM setup?

In my experience, this issue occurs in the analog chain, before the
audio gets to Analog_Bridge.  I'm running a multimode link, which
includes analog, and audio is generally very good, except for specific
sources (e.g. Echolink PC users are notorious for muffled audio, because
many PC mics are very bassy).

pyUC on Apple OSX

I could use a hand from someone who has it working.  I get a number of errors but the most often is:

  File "pyUC.py", line 203

SyntaxError: Non-ASCII character '\xe2' in file pyUC.py on line 203, but no encoding declared; see http://python.org/dev/peps/pep-0263/ for details


Line 203 looks to be a comment to me.
