Re: YSF Reflector Going Offline - Garbled Callsign

Scot,  

YSFReflector version 20210215 many of us are having the same issue with it,  where the reflector would crashed when user is unlinked from the reflector. My reflector would be up for long time and talk on it for hours but as soon as user(s) unlinked - it often crashed.

Some went back down to older version and live with either no IP logging issue or double logging issue but at no crashes. 

There is an opened issue about crashes on G4KLX github issue reports but I guess it was never got a looked at.

Myself went with https://github.com/iu5jae/pYSFReflector and have not look back.  Very stable and have some cool features.  However it was written in Python3 instead of C++.

Give it a try or if you want to stick with G4KLX version I would suggest get the older version if you could live with the IP address bug.

Using VW Mode on C4FM YSF Rooms

Stefsan
 

Hi,
there existing a few rooms here in Germany on C4FM YSF ( rooms like Ramses2) wich allow the usage of the high quality wv mode from yaesu. Normal  Rooms uses the DN mode in most ysf and fcs rooms, unfortunally stations using wv mode are not hearable via dvswitch.
is the a possibillity to activate wv mode by TX/RX for this in dvswitch or supports dvswitch only DN mode?

So if I am using a Pi, do I still need the pyUc app installed on mac, or should simply pointing the browser to the pi’s address allow for audio setup etc?
Thanks,
Justin

I suggest you not use D-Star without the hardware vocoder. it sounds really bad on TX and RX with software.

Finally, I'm looking at the installation instructions for installing DV-switch on a mac, and you indicate where to download the Pyuc files from, explain that it will unzip to a specific directory, and recommend that users move it to a different directory, by indicating that the directory should look like this:

Just an aside:

I used to use a hardware vocoder for AMBE. I can't tell the difference between hardware and software. Yes, you'll definitely want hardware for D-Star. That's currently covered by the transcoders on my XLX reflector, not DVSwitch itself, since I don't use it to connect to D-Star directly, at least for now. This will be changing at some point.

OK,
So, it does not take down the reflector.
Can you post the actual log file?
IF I can find anything in the log, you can talk to the user, or you may have to block his IP.
To get what looks like a bug in YSFReflector to me, you may want to ask in <https://groups.io/g/OpenDV>

Sorry guys, I made a boo boo.  Its not chmod (this changes file permissions)  With the error you got, I went looking and found I'm 'toopid' :-)

The command you really want is chattr +i {filename (or full path to filename)}

chattr is change attribute which is what you really wanted. I knew the +i worked --it does if you use the right command.

with the i flag use sudo chattr +i  or -i as only super users can unset the i

My apologies.

Thank you guys.
Kevin I had to go with Mike's recommendation because when I issued the chmod command I got chmod: invalid mode: ‘+i’

Or you do the easy thing: change the file name/path in the ini file to your own custom named csv file. 


locked Re: How to permanently replace the file subscriber_ids.csv

W1KMC - Kevin M Carman
 

You could make the file immutable (premanently fixed) but if the subscriber_ids.csv gets updated by DVSwitch the update will fail as immutable files canot be changed.

 

Example is my cloud server when updated changed my resolvers (DNS resolvers) to whjat THEY wanted, not what I had set. Making the resolver.conf file immutable protects my changes.

So how to do this:    chmod +i  subscriber_ids.csv  (the letter is a small (eye) )

and if you want to make your own changes you have to remove the immutable flag with:  chmod -i subscriber_ids.csv

the examples are if you are in the same directory as the file if you are not, the a fill path to the file is needed -- e.g. chmod +i /etc/resolver.conf

hope this helps.

Hi,
I have a customized subscriber_ids.csv file that I use to overwrite the original one. The trick works, but, sometime later my file is overwritten back with the original one. Is there a way to make the change permanent?
