Hello, I’m new here and hope I have  right group!
 
Have any of you connected this setup to a repeater controller without a hotspot or virtual server?
A friend has set up a Raspberry Pi3 with the AMB3000 thumb drive with his mobile android and it works and sounds great.

He’s looking for the information, script, code so he can configure the RPI-3 and set it up for an analog repeater and wire directly to a CAT controller without a hotspot or virtual server.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
 
I did find this but I’m wondering if there is a better way than purchasing an USB Radio interface? (We Rather Build something)

P25 North America reflector

Steve N4IRS
 

Robert,
I would personally like to thank you for your timely report of a issue with the P25 North America reflector. Without your quick action I would not have known about the issue and been able to take steps to hopefully resolve the issue. Please, keep up the good work.

73, Steve N4IRS


What file does menu 01 corespond to?

Justin Mann
 

Hi there,
I’m trying to get my copy of dvswitcH_server installed so that i can install analog_reflector. I’m trying to make it through menu 01, and am having difficulty reading some of the values. Is there some .ini file that I could just edit, and plug those values in? I know my DMRID, Brandmeister Password, NXDN Id, and obviously my callsign. A terminal-based menu system doesn’t track well with my screen-reader, so it would be easier I think just to plug the values in to their appropriate .ini files. The only thing that I need to be concerned with I think are the default usrp ports? Apologies if these are elementary questions.
Thanks,
Justin-ai5os.

I have an XLX reflector that is currently working great with DSTAR, DMR, and Fusion links.  The XLX reflector runs on a Digital Ocean Droplet (cloud-based), and I have NWDigital AMBE dongles on a Raspberry Pi 4 at home doing the transcoding two/from DSTAR.  My understanding is that DMR and Fusion transcoding is happening on the reflector.

I also have an AllStar node running on a Pi 3B and physically attached to one four linked repeaters to keep it connected to AllStar and Echolink.

 

I would like to add a link from the XLX reflector to the Allstar node so that we can  connect it to our analog repeater (if the need arises – but not permanently). My plan has been to install and fully configure DVServer, but had the thought last night that I really only need DVServer to talk to Allstar and our DMR talk group. 

 

Is it as simple as that? 

It _could_ be done that way.  However, it is likely that audio on at least one of the modes (most likely D-STAR) would be suboptimal.  The reason is that D-STAR audio has to go through AMBE+ then transcoded to AMBE+2, before finally ending up as PCM for AllStar.  However, this involves the least disruption to your existing setup.  It's a pity that you can't extract PCM over USRP out of xlxd, as that would be the ideal solution.  Try it and see if you like the result.


Is there a reason for me to consider moving all of the transcoding to DVServer and away from XLXD while establishing a link from DVServer to the XLX reflector? 

Best audio across the system is obtained when every mode is only one vocoder removed from PCM.  However, this would require some reorganisation to separate DMR from D-STAR into separate modules on the reflector, since the reflector would no longer be able to transcode the streams.


From what I’ve read it sounds like I could run DVServer could run on the same Pi as Allstar.  Is that advisable?

I have done it on a PC.  Haven't tried on a Pi, but I can't see a reason why it wouldn't work.

Error App. It does not show callsigns in the Dvswitch Mobile Android app.

sete_EA5
 

Hello, for a few days, almost always you do not show me the callsign on the call screen or the elapsed time of these, but if they all appear correctly in the html page of the Dvswitch Server. I have reinstalled the Android app, updated database files, reinstalled DvSwitch Server and updated, but still having the same problem. In addition, to update the application databases from the configuration section, I have to repeat the process several times, since many attempts fail. A week ago everything was working perfectly for me. Thanks for the help. All the best.


Re: running the dvs command?

Steve N4IRS
 

The callsign gets uppercased when it's written to the config fies. It does not hurt to enter it uppercase. Yes, tab, shift tab to move.

Good afternoon, on Windows PC running Echolink in SysOp mode I can run a pre-recorded hourly message (.wav file) on an Echolink repeater, for hours have been trying to do same on my RPi4 running Allstar and Echolink bridge on DVSwitch, has anyone ever done this and if so are there any instructions please, many thanks in advance.
