I'm stumped....


Roger Davies
 

I'm using DVS Mobile. I can hear all traffic from TGs, but no one can hear me. I can go to Hoseline and hear myself. I checked to see if I could hear myself using hotspot, but no luck their either. DVS dashboard shows me keying up. I tried the TGIF network and all works perfect, I can hear and be heard. It's like I can get to the BM server, when I key up, but that's about it. Signal doesn't come out on any TG. I did a DVS server upgrade and no help there either. Checked BM Hotspot password and that's good. Any ideas? TIA. Roger N6DVZ

I'm having the same problem.  Were there any updates, that were pushed to DVS, that could have broken something?  I can hear BM talkgroups on DVS but I cannot transmit.  My passwords are correct and BM says it's not an issue on their end.

What TG?
Post MMDVM_Bridge log when transmitting

Mine will work on 31211 but that's the only one I've found so far. I can't find an MMDVM log anywhere at the moment.

3166, 3167 and parrot all work.  Tried 3118 and 3121 again and they do not.

BM US is blocking the statewide TGs Use a non US server or swap out MMDVM_Bridge for STFU

I really suggest you stop posting on Telegram. You will get no support.

I normally know what STFU is but I don't think that's the way you meant it so would you elaborate please?


Steve N4IRS
 

STFU is Simple Terminal Feature Update. It is a alternate method of connecting to BM. It can replace MMDVM_Bridge for connecting to BM.

Thank you.  I will have to study that as it's the first I've heard of it.  I'm a relative newcomer to DVS.  In the meantime I've got it working again on Mexico's master.  It wouldn't work with Canada's Master either.  I appreciate you figuring out what was going on and offering us some work arounds.

Thanks Steve. I'll take your advice on posting about DVS on Telegram.
I connected to Parrot, using master 3104 and Parrot works. Still no luck on our state TG 3149.
How do I go about using/setup STFU?

David,
I tried the Mexico master and had no luck there. Do you use the same password as you do for a US master?
Thanks


Steve N4IRS
 

Yes, The password works. Check your MMDVM_Bridge log in /var/log/mmdvm

Well at least they admitted blocking it now where the first time they told me nothing had changed.on their end recently. 

Roger, yes I'm using the same password. You might want to go into your BM selfcare settings and set your password again and then go through the initial setup on DVS again.


Roger Davies
 

David, 
I was able to connect to the Mexico master. I checked for my info on the master list and I showed up there.
I'll take a look at setting the password again.
Thanks

David,
What is the name of the log file is the one you posted above?
I looked at MMDVM_Bridge-2021-08-22.log and it looks different.


David - W9DWH
 

That's the same name of the file that I used.

I had a similar problem connecting to the weekly 3142 net from my ClearNode- tried a Canadian server and could hear them
Ok but couldn’t transmit. I’m not familiar with STFU; would that break the normal operation of the ClearNode?


Roger Davies
 

Hi Steve,
Thanks for you patience. I appreciate your help. Thought I'd give this a go on my own to learn.
I've been trying to get STFU to work, but I must be missing something. When I select STFU as a mode, it changes right back to DMR.
Here what I've done so far:
1. Ran apt update and apt install stfu
2. Edited  DVSwitch.ini STFU section:
[STFU]                          ; Brandmeister Open DMR Terminal (ODMRT) Protocol
BMAddress = 3102.repeater.net   ; Brandmeister ODMRT server address
BMPort = 54006                  ; Brandmeister ODMRT port
BMPassword = XXXXX       ; Your Brandmeister password
Address = 127.0.0.1             ; Address to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
txPort  = 36100                 ; Port to send AMBE TLV frames to (export)
rxPort  = 36103                 ; Port to listen on (import)
UserID  = 3149001             ; Your DMR ID + SSID (I did not add SSID)
TalkerAlias = N0CALL Name City  ; Max 27 characters
StartTG = 3149                  ; Startup talk group
LogLevel = 3                    ; STFU log level (0=No logging, 1=Debug, 2=Message, 3=Info, 4=Warning, 5=Error)

3. Here is my STFU.log:
