Re: PiDV Connection to a FM Radio



I currently use my ThumbDV and two Baofeng 888's on D_Star, audio reports are good and my pal who lives in the next street has used his IC706 for D_Star via my 888 while I am in control of my station.

It's a useful learning project

Thank you.. Yeah that’s not pretty but it might be worth playing
with.. It’s times like this that make me wish I had gotten into
software J It would be a great product if someone could simplify the
software and package all the pieces into one nice little box with a
display to give any rig digital capability..

You can get there, but it is kind of ugly at this point UDRC <-->
dstarrepeater <--> ircddbgateway <--> DummyRepeater <--> AMBEserver
(with PiDV or ThumbDV)
Audio goes in and out of DummyRepeater.

Is that software available has to be the next question. 😄

The PiDV and ThumbDV are serial devices for encoding and decoding
audio to and from AMBE. They do not connect to a radio or provide
modulation or demodulation.
The UDRC can provide the modem to talk to a radio. However, for a
complete solution you would need both and software to handle the
protocol, radio, and audio.

I'm interested in a PiDV but want to know if it's capable of
modulating and demodulating the signals off of the packet port on a
FM rig? I can't seem to find any documention on the device to answer
the question.
Thank you,
