P25 Signalling

Skyler Fennell
 

I'm not heavily experienced in P25, but is there a signalling format similar to DTMF over P25 radios without changing talkgroup? 

Would this be included in the metadata?

Is there any way to extract metadata from MMDVM_Bridge?

We would like to see a way to be able to control repeater functions such as link to a specific AllStar node via P25.

Re: Linking P25 to P25 using two mmdvm's

Mike AE4ML
 

Simple solution. Stand up a private P25 reflector on a raspberry pi. Setup the up address of the pi and a specific P25 talkgroup I.e 10299 with the up address in the P25Host file and it will work.

Tony,

Jonathan has created a P25 reflector system which might be adapted to your use, have a look here;

https://github.com/g4klx/P25Clients

I know that originally Jonathan was quite particular with who he let stand up reflectors/talkgroups as he did not want to splinter the conversations, but YMMV.

73,
Peter

Subject: [DVSwitch] Linking P25 to P25 using two mmdvm's
 
Folks, I've been reading the threads but cannot find anything relevant to what I wish to achieve, basically I wish to link together two mmdvm boards which will be in P25 mode over an intranet together but not connected to any reflectors in effect a 'private' network.
I managed to do this last year using the same pair of mmdvm units using DMR with HBlink (I think was what I used), this worked brilliantly, but I cannot see any way for it to be done using P25.
I would appreciate any guidance as to how to get this up and running so I can extend the P25 repeater coverage into my radio workshop which is below ground level and there is no coverage from the repeater 1/4 of a mile away.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated

regards
Tony

DMR<->YSF audio only one direction

Heiko DL1BZ
 

I have made the following setup:
mmdvm_bridge(DMR)<->AB_DMR<->AB_YSFN<->mmdvm_bridge(YSF)<->ysfreflector on port 42000
One direction YSF2DMR works, the other direction DMR2YSF don't (no audio, but it shows the correct transmission). Steve, it's the same bug you describe in another message with mmdvm_bridge ?
I know the simplier way with YSF, but I need "re-leveling" in audio because the c4fm transmission is a little bit to quietly and sometimes DMR is a little bit to loud in ysfreflector. So I decided to do this with transcode with the help of analog_bridges for adjust the audio level between this two modes.
I see on my FTM100 only a blinking blue led, so I think, theres no YSFN output (I see this blinking blue led too on my FTM100 if the repeater sends DMR). I bridged the ASL-ports correctly cross-over in the two instances of analog_bridge.

Keith,
There is a bug in MMDVM_Bridge causing the issue. It is being worked on.

Hi Steve,

I have tried to use this configuration, but users on the YSF bridge report that my callsign shows up as N4IRR. Audio is great for most radios however users of the FT-400 radios show me as transmitting but no audio is passed (metadata issue?).
Is this because of a possible configuration issue on my side or an issue you know of?

This is how everything is linked:
mmdvm_bridge(pi-star-hotspot)<>p25gateway(pi-star-hostspot)<>local-p25-reflector<>p25gateway<>mmdvm_bridge(looping from P25 - YSF reflector)

Re: Linking BM talkgroup to XXL server.

Pierre Martel
 

ok thanks, Yes this help. I now know more on where to search for assigning the transcoding to the XLX server. 


Le jeu. 14 mars 2019 à 13:56, Ben Fogt <n5amd@...> a écrit :
Pierre,

I think it would be possible. The peer would just go to 2 different modules on the XLX reflector. For example A and B. You can edit the code of the XLX reflector before compiling to lock transcoding down to specific modules that way the BM peers are the only ones that get transcoding. OR you can simply only enable 2 modules and that will basically achieve the same result, locking transcoding down to the 4 thumb drives across 2 modules. I hope this helps.

What would be the best way to acheive this? I have a nice connection to the internet 400/50 And I also have a /26 of 44net ip adress to run the server ( they are reachable from non 44 ip adress. )
