Re: Hytera DMR Gateway

Per Hytera. I believe it’s like a Grand stream UCM 6102? I believe that is a Hardware standalone device that would mimic a Astrix  PBX server and connect to the sip section in the repeater. So I can buy one for like $270 Us and Connect it to my Hytera network. Create a conference extension, then have all my cell phone users log into that extension and everyone with a radio or cell phone can talk to each other on the entire Hytera network. Once I build this I think I may try to port a MMDVM system to it to extend its capabilities?. I’m trying to keep this away from the B/M system and have it more of a standalone network in the US.

Again thank you for explaining this in a way we all can understand what works and what don’t.

Please look at my post https://dvswitch.groups.io/g/main/message/8479

My RD985 is running latest FW 9.xx . The latest version of gw_hytera_mmdvm (I believe the version number was 2.1) has support for the FW 9.xx, the older version was build for FW 8.xx and had some issues with FW 9.xx. The image for Pi I linked in my previous posting has the latest version 2.1 included (based on debian10/buster for Pi). All you need you will be found in this image - latest gw_hytera_mmdvm and DMRGateway. Make a SD card with this image and put it in a Pi. Again I need to say - the developer of gw_hytera_mmdvm, Kurt/OE1KBC, has stopped the development of his tool. It was closed source, that means source code was and is not available. There is no support and not a real documentary. Look in the config-file of gw_mmdvm_hytera and you will understand what you need to configure out. It's simple to understand I think. Because the gw_hytera_mmdvm is discontinued now, a new development https://github.com/OK-DMR/Hytera_Homebrew_Bridge will be work as a replacement for the discontinued gw_mmdvm_hytera, but it's only beta now. Not all is working, so the developer needs a little time for final version. I am confident that it will be an even better solution.

Yes, it is possible to connect the HYTERA repeater to a SIP system/PBX. But I don't check this option up to now. Professional radio users need such an option, so it should work I think. And if I understand it correct, you will need a SIP-PBX like Asterisk or similar SIP server. The PBX you can access with a SIP softphone app for smartphones.

Here I use Hblink as the dmr-master. The HYTERA repeaters are connected via gw_hytera_mmdvm+DMRGateway running at Pi to the Hblink. Other MMDVM-based systems are connected to the HBlink too. All works good and stable. If you have questions about gw_hytera_mmdvm and it's config I can help here. For setup a HBlink, which is much more complex you can look here https://dvswitch.groups.io/g/HBlink and ask there please.

Re: Hytera DMR Gateway

D B
 

Now this was helpful. I saw the video on the PI with the Hytera Gateway. But there was some question on what firmware it ran on? I’m thinking of buying the Grandstream SIP server and connecting that to my Hytera network that way I can do the cell phone app via a sip PBX to the network to start. Then maybe I will try to tackle a MMDVM / Pi link?

 

 

Thanks.

@D B:
I don't think that anyone will be able to answer your request here. Your question is basically "How do I create a whole and complete network(!) that a) connects HYTERA repeaters, b) connects MMDVM repeaters and MMDVM hotspots, and c) enables access via smartphone and how bring it all together. The detailed answer could fill a whole book :)
Therefore I will limit my answer to the content of this thread - Hytera DMR Gateway.

The background: HYTERA repeater like RD985 or RD625 have their own protocol to connect these devices over IP. It's not compatible with the MMDVM-protocol. If you want to connect your HYTERA-repeater to a MMDVM-based System (aka DMR-master) like HBlink you need a protocol converter. It works like that:

HYTERA-repeater <-> gw_hytera_mmdvm <-> DMRGateway (G4KLX) <-> one or multiple DMR networks. For the two tools in the middle, gw_hytera_mmdvm and DMRGateway the best solution is a Pi. The repeater connects the Pi running gw_hytera_mmdvm, that tool is connected internally via 127.0.0.1 with the DMRGateway and the DMRGateway itself connects one or more MMDVM-based access systems like HBlink or similar like IPSC2-server or BrandMeister-server. So you will have a protocol converter from HYTERAs IPSC to/from MMDVM. Nothing more, nothing less.

To bring all systems together, you need to setup a dmr-master like hblink - and then you can connect your systems like mmdvm-hotspots, mmdvm-repeaters and of course your HYTERA repeaters with gw_hytera_mmdvm and DMRGateway. Your smartphone access (maybe with DVSwitch mobile and it's own opportunities) you need to connect to the master system like Hblink too. It is impossible to present all of this as a complete guide. This will not be a manual, it will be a book :)

Yes, I have running such a complete solution include HYTERA-repeaters. It's possible and work very well. Dozens of hours of work are required before all of this is done. What it is not: a small and quick solution.

Btw, a downgrade from FW 9.xx to 8.xx is NOT supported by HYTERA.The background was the lost court case against MOTOROLA, as a result of which HYTERA had to remove some things from the firmware with the start of version 9.xx.

Re: DStar Message

Mike Zingman - N4IRR
 

Mike,

Your original question was can I change CALLSIGN / DVSW to something else.  Well, No, your callsign is a required field in the protocol and most networks verify that it is valid and allowed.  The /DVSW field is optional, but is limited to 4 characters and most DSTAR users set this to the radio that they are using (ID51, etc).  Since you are using DVSwitch Server, I set this to conform to the norm.

Now, you say that you are getting what looks like garbage and NOT callsign/DVSW?  I have not seen that and would like to see your MB logs surrounding a short transmission.

Mike


Re: DStar Message

Mike, AA9VI
 

Can you make it configurable?  Right now I have this message being sent out to DPlus reflectors "X9NC 9/2."  That isn't very informative.  Not only that, the callsign is truncated.

No it is not trying to transcode from D-Star. I'm betting you have UDP port problems. The DVSwitch install is pre-configured  to just drop in. When you run DVS it gives you the option to set the UDP ports on Analog _Bridge. Just leave them at default.
If you can put all the ports back to default. Look at the logs for info as to where you are having a failure.

What all files do you need? Also tried to enable DMR and YSF to get it out of DMR mode and that didn't work. I also have an issue connecting to remote ircddbgateway. Gateway address is my ircddbgateway computer. but the gateway address should be 20028 and local should be 20010. But to get it to work. I had to do gatewayport 20010 and local pot 20028 I am so confused.

All I want to do is get DSTAR linked back to ASL. dummyrepeater doesn't work anymore. I would get good audio through. But when DSTAR went back there was nothing.  No audio or keyup. Then I want to get DMR local 2 on my ASL node. Or is there a better way? Should I get my xlxd reflector working internally and then transcode from there?

I am using the DVSwitch-Server with the repo. Yes Hardware transcoder. The op transcoder sounds and acts better.

I've been using the new opition for increasing the size of the PTT on the DVSWITCH Mobile application. Great improvement for mobile operation. Thank You to the developers. Very nice indeed.
