Re: Interface Icom D-Star repeater to DVSwitch?

Ryan Collier
 

Do you still need help with this issue? I have 2 ICOM repeater stacks running full stack. I have ICOM software installed and running along with ircddbgateway. I do run starnet at STN093_C (Chat). I can help with the process.


Re: Hytera DMR Gateway

D B
 

Ok if I start from scratch? What do you suggest I use to get a system up and running?
the goal is to have several Hyteras linked together. Then I wish to connect a cell phone app to that network AND have the little mmdvm radios connected to it all? I believe some of you have the HYT and the bridge built to the mmdvm and the rest of the world like BM and others?
My goal is to start semi small and connect HYT to (????) to mmdvm radios to a tablet or pc or cell phone? So I'm hoping to find some one that has 
built the wheel and is willing to explain to us all in the simplest terms what we have to do to get it to work? With the more current HYTERA gear or
if you have it (ALL) working on older HYT gear what firmware are you using? I can contact HYT and ask engineering for a way to downgrade the firmware back? But would prefer to use  current gear.

PI computer running IOS (???)
Then you need to install (???) this package so you can connect XXX
And so on (PLEASE) 

Thanks

1st – this is a volunteer project, no one needs shouting at.

 

2nd – As I understand it when I last did this some years ago (not had access to a Hytera for a long time!), the DMRGateway binary only converts the Hytera protocol to MMDVM protocol, and so you’ll need to connect that to a bridge, be that DVSwitch Server, HBLink or BM direct.  CBridge doesn’t talk MMDVM, so you’d need to convert MMDVM to IPSC using DVSwitch.

Ok gentle men. I watched the video above. I build the jessie light PI as he described. I added the two Hytera gateway folders as he described?
(BUT) at the end of his video he quickly mentions a blurb about he connected it to his HP or HB server?  My question to all that have a (WORKING)
gateway to their Hytera only repeater? but not through any other stuff like BM or cbridge. would you help us all by?
Telling us how you personally did it.
1 what flavor of linux.
2 did you use the Hytera GW files from the video ? if not what did you use?
3 is your PI linked either by LAN or WAN to the Hytera directly with out other servers and devices in slave mode?
4 are you using dvswitch / hblink or some other software package?
5 what version of firmware AND what model Hytera are you using?
6 what software are you using on your PC or phone to connect to the mmdvm network? To talk to the network?
Please only respond if YOU have a WORKING system! We don't need anyone speculating their thoughts that (MAY OR MAY NOT) work.
Thanks 
I think we all want to tweak the wheel not re invent it from scratch.


Re: Hytera DMR Gateway

The things in video are old. This old gw_hytera_mmdvm was build for FW 8.xx of HYTERA repeater and had some issues with the newer FW 9.xx.
There was another (but last) update of the gw_hytera_mmdvm last year with support for FW 9.xx. This requires a Pi with debian10 / buster. I am actively using this here with a RD985, my HYTERA runs with FW 9.xx. OE1KBC no longer develops this software. It is discontinued. But there is still another way to use this software. Look here: https://www.a23-wertheim.de/downloads/dmr/dmrgateway-2/file/35-dmrgateway-image-a23-06092018-zipThis is a finished image for the Pi. It contains the last gw_hytera_mmdvm.
But there will soon be an alternative. Look here: https://github.com/OK-DMR/Hytera_Homebrew_Bridge
It's beta and not finished yet, but under active development.

If you watched the beginning of the video by Chris? he clearly states using a specific flavor of Jessie_lite because of the other versions having library issues.

John,
Yes, you can use a Pi Zero. It's on the very low end of functionality. I would really suggest a Pi 3. If you have a Zero now, by all means, try it out.

Re: bluetooth speaker mic inrico B01

I have been using 3 different Android devices and 1 PTT dedicated button. Samsung J7 Galaxy Android 7,  Samsung J7 Star Android 9,  and a Ulefone X5 running Android 10. The PTT button is a Pryme product which someone said would work on DVSwitch. After contacting the technical department at Pryme and having a phone call with them, they had no solution. I have since returned the PTT button. Also have tried 3 different Blueparrott headsets which all have programmable PTT buttons and 3 other necklace types, the most expensive of which is the LG which also has a programmable PTT button.

Check the voice call button under the options and it will work with a Bluetooth headset. But not with the inrico mic. I have tried that too. The mic only works with zello

I have tried this with the mobile DV app but with no avail, I was able to get the RX audio come through the Microphone but no PTT and no audio through the bluetooth mic when i used the Phone PTT button.

I hope this is done at some stage as this is the only thing stopping me taking DV mobile in the car..
