John,

This is the one that will work? Looks like it
should. If this all works I will be able to go
mobile with it.

Re: OTG charging issue

David Smith
 

This is great news. When you find the cable please share. Meanwhile I will be on the
lookout for it. Is this done on the new android version you just posted?

By the way I am running the new version this morning sitting here listening on Dstar,
communications nice and clean. Is fusion setup to work yet?

Hi All,

Now the ThumbDV is working on my phone there is one issue left.

If I connect the ThumbDV directly to my phone, it will drain the phone and after 45 minutes the complete solution stops.
I brought some OTG cables but none of them are working.

See my cables and see that none of them charge the phone. ( upper battery icon. )




Is there anyone who knows OTG cables that charges the phone and power the ThumbDV and also tested it?


Thanks!

Good news. I managed to connect my ThumbDV directly to my Android device so no AMBEServer needed anymore. The sound is amazing!

The downside is that the ThumbDV drains your battery. After 45 minutes the battery is low and can't give enough power to the ThumbDV.
This version is NOT available yet! First I want to find an OTG cable that powers the phone and the ThumbDV. ( will make new thread with my used OTG cables that did not work )

David,

I like the program but when I try to access our clubs repeater it does not show up on the lists. I can find our repeater when I use Buster on my Mac.

How do you add repeaters?

Hi Gary,

It depends how you see it :-) The speaker is transmitting the voice to you.
I know.. Maybe I will switch RX and TX for AMBE. ( when I have time )

I uploaded a new pre version of BlueDV for Windows. Main additions in this versions are:

- Noise cancellation ( The background noise is gone now )
- Special screen for AMBE control. I have more space now to make controls for AMBE.
- Mute button for spreaker
- No popup anymore when there is a new version ( beta or pre beta ). You will see a link to upgrade.
- Many bugfixes

You can find the new version ( 9452 or higher ) : http://software.pa7lim.nl/BlueDV/BETA/Windows/

Re: ambe server not Active: failed

 

Make sure nothing else is trying to talk to the port at the same time when running tests or ambeserver.

I don't have a Zero to test on -- however, this is a simple piece of hardware and software.

There are test python scripts in https://github.com/dl5di/OpenDV/tree/master/DummyRepeater/DV3000 to make sure you are able to talk to the ThumbDV on /dev/ttyUSBx  (x being the number for the port).  Look at the script to see what settings you need.

Next run the ambeserver from the command line

sudo ambeserver -p /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 460800  # As an example

Watch for errors and from a second terminal run the ambesocketest.py https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/ambe/wiki/AMBEserver-Addendum#Testing-the-AMBEserver

If that all works, then move on to debugging why your systemctl file isn't working.
