Re: Ambe server two DVstick in one raspberrypi? #ambeserver

 

AMBEserver is a rather trivial program, it is not strongly dependent on the underlying OS (Unix/Linux distributions) and you can run multiple instances simultaneously.  Just select a UDP port for the network side and a serial port for ThumbDV™ (or equivalent device).

This group is sponsored by NW Digital Radio to support the ThumbDV™.

HI Andrew,

I am sure we tested this situation on the compass. Currently I only have one DVStick30 on compass, but two DVStick30 on AMBEserver (git). Rick and I tested today and no interference, I was on TG31689 (2461 port ttyUSB1) and Rick is on TG5159 (2460 port ttyUSB0) with no problem.

Hi Nomis,

I was able to test the two dvstick connected to a raspberrypi.
1. ttyUSB0 config file was set to 2460 service was start successfully.
2. ttyUSB1 config file was set to 2461 service was start successfully.

here are my observation.
if user one using USB0 and user two using USB1 and they are connected  at the same time.
when both are using DMR mode one is for example at TG 91 and the other one is on TG 515
both user will hear two talkgroups what ever comes first . which is not supposed to be.

Thanks and 73!

HI Andrew,

Yes, it works, with two DVStick30, with port 2460 ttyUSB0 and port 2461 ttyUSB1. We tested them, okay.

Hi All,

Using a compass image and having a two thumb dv stick connected to one raspberrypi does it work as two ambe server? changing the port of each ambe configuration?
let say ttyUSB0 is port 2460 and ttyUSB1 is port 2461?

is there anyone have this setup? if yes how did you do it?

Re: BlueDV on an Inrico T320? Or any other network radio

Hi,

have running a T320 with a raspberry pi ambe server with DV 30 ambe Stick. T320 runs perfect with BlueDV last version including PTT. Also with TM7 it runns perfect also with USB DV30 Sick on USB of the TM7 (mot with T320 there USB Stick on USB is not functionally only with AMBE Server on T320) BlueDV is running fine on both including PTT on both.

AMBE Server is easy to setup on any RPI with standart image and the AMBE Server from marrold (get by github) on a clean Raspberry standart image.

See also my qrz.com page dl1esz also explained there.

I’m using the T320 also, it displays in portrait and does work with the BlueDv to include PTT. To use D-star, DMR and Fusion I have a ThumbDv running on a Raspberry Pi and or Windows Server.

There is no special setup for the PTT, It’s built into  the app.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the replies.  I'm using the DVStick 30 with AMBE server on my PC.  Windows AMBE server with BlueDv on my Android device works great, but it always runs in landscape orientation.  Based on the feedback, I think I'll give an Inrico T320 radio a try.  Since I don't see an option in BlueDv AMBE for PTT, how did you setup the PTT to key up BlueDv via the T320?

Thanks again!

Hello Karl,

Re: ambeserver on a Raspberry Pi stops after 30 seconds #ambeserver

 

Sometimes the ThumbDV™ will get some bad data on the USB (another program hitting it or such) to start and the reinsert will fix the problem.

Re: ambeserver on a Raspberry Pi stops after 30 seconds #ambeserver

 

This is usually a user/group/permission problem.

The Compass Linux images are older and mostly deprecated.  They can work, but I generally start with a newer Raspberry Pi OS (formerly Raspbian - Buster) version.  I then follow  https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/ambe/wiki/1520#Quick-Build-on-Linux the source, support, and test programs can also be found at  https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/ambe/files  
 

AMBEserver is really a pretty simple daemon program.  As long as the environment is right it should work.

John,

tnx for the reply. I followed the mentioned image from the WIKI - archive.compasslinux.org  (image_2018-12-31-compass-lite.zip) on a RPi 2.

Have't seen an other image....and I am not sure, if I can use the original raspian image?

Hi, you get Problems to Start ambe server demon by open serial Port before.
Check why ttyUSB0 cannot open, maybe open /etc/group with nano or Other editor add dailout with the User who starts ambe Server.

Point us to which directions/image you are using.  Some are outdated or missing an element.

Re: BlueDV on an Inrico T320? Or any other network radio

 

You may need a USB device driver such as https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=hu.sztupy.android.usbhostcontroller  -- but hooking directly to a phone may be a power drain as Gwen points out.

Only way I know to do it on an Inrico T320 is to use an external AMBEServer. I don't think the T320 is an OTG device. But I stopped trying to use a ThumbDV connected directly to a phone when I saw my battery charge indicator visibly sinking while it was connected. It draws a LOT of juice, even when just in receive. So I have a Raspberry Pi on my local network, with a powered hub on it and the ThumbDV plugged into the powered hub. That same horrible power draw means a Pi USB port will NOT power the ThumbDV directly. You MUST use a powered hub. (For Pi 3+ and below. I haven't tried it on a 4 with USB-C.)

My Pi has:
AMBEServer installed (NO BUSTER)
A dynamic DNS daemon, so if my local network IP changes, it can update my dynamic DNS address.
A port-forwarded hole in my firewall so I can get at it from outside.

Then configure BlueDV AMBE for the dynamic DNS address instead of the localhost IP address.

Works fine, but I only use it when I want to use my T320 as a backup device. I take it to things like Field Day, or hamfests. The PTT works great for things like Echolink, Teamspeak 3, and Zello, but I don't use Zello because it doesn't play well with others. If you have Zello configured for PTT, even if you stop the app from the apps menu, if you hit the PTT, it'll RESTART Zello, even if you're trying to use the PTT with Teamspeak or Echolink. Freaking annoying, so I stopped using Zello.
