ASL <> D-Star

 

I just started a new project for a D-STAR to ASL bridge.
If anyone has done this before can you send me an example MMDVM_Bridge.ini?
if not can someone point me in the right direction? around the settings for network and ircdbb?

also, in the analog bridge ini does this look right?

Hey Russel,

    I run an additional DMR <->D-Star bridge on the Carolina Link on Tues/Sat nights.  Here’s the MMDVM.ini setup info for D-Star:

 

[D-Star Network]

Enable=1

GatewayAddress=192.168.0.250

GatewayPort=20010

LocalPort=20012

Debug=0

 

 

In the D-Star section, you need to point the GatewayAddress & GatewayPort to where you have your ircDDBGateway running.  In the above, I have one instance of ircDDBGateway running on a different PI2.  It’s where I have a DVAP setup.  It’s easy enough to have more than one “device” setup in ircDDBGateway.  In your ircDDBGateway you need to point your module to where the “new device” is running so here’s the section of ircDDBGateway:

 

repeaterCall2=

repeaterBand2=D

repeaterType2=0

repeaterAddress2=192.168.0.240

repeaterPort2=20012

reflector2=

atStartup2=0

reconnect2=0

frequency2=0.00000

offset2=0.0000

rangeKms2=0.000

 

I use “repeater 2” in ircDDBGateway for the additional bridge.   The bridge is ran on an ODroid C1 w/ the IP of 192.168.0.240.  ircDDBGateway is running on a PI2 w/ the IP of 192.168.0.250.  Make sense?  Hope that helps.  73 de K4SQI!

well here's to my memory, i was trying to do this software only.
you need a hardware option for D-Star :(

AB can use a software codec which has somewhat limited quality but will allow you to configure and test.
