I also have just received my DV3000U dongle. ThumbTest failed on Windows 10.  Please see screen capture below.  Any ideas of what's wrong?  Thanks.   Jack K1VT

I found that following an error, such as communicating with the wrong baud rate, that I had to remove the stick and reinsert it. KC2NM

One thing on the video, the device he used is at 230400 baud, current (last few years) ThumbDVs are at 460800 baud.

BlueDV, both the latest beta and pre-beta versions do the same behavior.  When i deselect "Serial", and enter the Setup menu, the COM14 port is available.  I select that, and Save.  If I turn on Serial again (the only thing that responds),  the Update menu pick grays out, and nothing is selectable.  No frequency shows up, no firmware, nothing.  Unresponsive.

Does someone have a simple walk-through to get BlueDV working with Windows 10?

XC-3006 Moves to Production

by k7udr

We have 26 orders on the books, so we are moving to production. We will continue to accept orders until the end of February. We should be shipping in April.

This will not be a stock item, we are building to order only. There will only be a future build if we reach sufficient numbers again, so if you are interested, now is the time to place an order.

We want to thank again the XLX team for "Putting the Amateurs back in Amateur Radio" by providing their transcoding solution.

Re: ThumbDV & Raspberry Pi

 

Tom

I haven't run pi-star, so I don't know it's capabilities.  A good question for pi-star support.  Typically you would use dummy repeater in the G4KLX stack, which I believe is the basis of pi-star.

All,
to bring closure on this thread ... I saw the hi Loss% on two repeaters which both happened to be running Pi-Star. In MMDVMHost, we increased the jitter from 300 (default) to 700 and Loss % is consistently 0% now. AND great audio reports.

Tnx for everyone's constructive advice. Much appreciated. ThumbDV is a great performer and suits my need for a convenient travel package. I look forward to future product enhancements. Now returning to regular programming .... with repeaters and hotspots!!
