MMDVM_Bridge [INFO] for brandmeister #brandmeister #mmdvm_bridge

Frank C. D'Amato
 

My MMDVM_Bridge.ini has the following

[Info]
RXFrequency=444775000
TXFrequency=449775000
Power=200
Latitude=40.789737
Longitude=-76.121412
Height=550
Location=Barnesville, PA
Description=W3TWA MMDVM_Bridge
URL=http://qrz.com/db/w3twa

I asked Brandmeister support how do I get "Priority Message" and "Description" to populate? (I'm unable to edit those fields).

They replied...
The information in all those greyed out fields is taken from the hotspot to BM.  You need to edit that in the hotspot software and it will be updated on BM then.

What additional settings need to be in the [INFO] section?  Description, height, Power are already in there but don't seem to pass the information.

Yes, that is the example string used in HamVoIP, which generates a GSM file on the node setup script.

That's just a default example which was never changed to something useful by whoever installed that node.

It may have been I set the ID string to empty rather then commenting out the line. I'll test and adjust the example if needed.

Thanks, Steve

I originally used your example because I thought it would do that as well, but after being annoyed by a dit coming across USRP, holding things up on a pretty busy talkgroup every time it happened, I just commented those lines out, and it went away with no consequence.

No, it definitely won't even try to send an ID if that line is commented out, so there's really no point in having it there in the first place on a USRP bridge.

It's going to send a ID to USRP. So, make it a E (dit)

I updated it, lets see what happens.  Thanks

on the DVSwitch Server. Yes in /etc/asterisk

In the ect/asterick directory?

Make sure the lines starting with idrecording and idtalkover are either commented out or don't exist in /etc/asterisk/rpt.conf under the stanza for the node where your DMR bridge lives. You may also want to make sure duplex=0 and telemdefault=0, unless you have a special case, as I do.
