Thanks John

Just ordered a Draws and GPS

I'll place another order for the Thumb to put on the shelf as a backup and save a few $$

Re: Linking to XLX reflectors

Purely as an exercise I have XLX running on a BeagleBoneBlack and today I updated my Macbook with the resulting one-way audio.

A few minutes testing identified my problem and a workaround.

Re: Linking to XLX reflectors

Annaliese McDermond
 

That’s what I figured. The dumb author of this software didn’t know who to ask about preferred protocols to the XLX reflectors and assumed that DExtra would work fine and was the easiest. I’m sure at some point in time soon that she’ll get around to shifting the protocol to connect to XLX reflectors to the DPlus or DCS link drivers instead. I heard she is getting married on Saturday, though, and has very limited time right now.

[Edited Message Follows]


This will put AMBESERVER on your Raspberry Pi running Raspbian or Debian box running Stretch or Jesse. THIS IS NOT FOR COMPASS LINUX.

I am running this with ThumbDV in my Debian Box and also with my DVstick30 in my Raspberry Pi.

I am able to use my Android Phone running BlueDV Ambe from the Play store, or my Laptop with BlueDV and connect to my machines from any part of the planet.

My ThumbDV and DVstick30 are located over 10,000Km apart, and I can work D-Star or DMR stations. on my Android phone sitting at Starbucks, or an Airport, or on an Aircraft with WiFi.

Enough said let's start. I love Kali Linux, so will do all as root.

ssh into your machine, at the prompt run

sudo bash hit the enter key, you will now be root user.
nano /etc/ssh/sshd.config
scroll to the line that says
PORT 22 change 22 to any number you like.
{I WARN YOU TO REMEMBER THIS NUMBER YOU ENTERED}
Next scroll a little bit more to where you see.
# Authentication
# PermitRootLogin  blah blah. 
On that line remove the hash tag # and blah blah, then put the word yes
Ctrl + X and then Y on your keyboard.
at the prompt run:
passwd 
enter any password you want, you will see nothing as you typed in the password, hit enter, type the same password again enter
now you have full root access into your machine.
type reboot.

After the machine is rebooted ssh back in with your new ssh port number and
login as root with the root password you created.

Now run:
apt-get update
apt-get install git curl wget 
after these are installed, run:
git clone git://github.com/marrold/AMBEServer.git
cd AMBEServer
make
make install
At this point  Ambeserver is installed on your machine.

To be able to find your machine online, so before we start you will need to setup an account at one of these example: 
dyndns.org or noip.com, the list is endless, so your choice. After you make the account, create a hostname for your Raspberry Pi 
or Debian box on this website.

Next back to your machine run:
apt-get install ddclient
During the installation you will be asked to enter your login name and password to your dns host account, you setup above, and
choose what name you want to assign this machine from your account, once done, accept all the default prompts during the installation.
after you returned at the prompt run:
nano /etc/ddclient.conf
after the last line of text type in this:
Daemon=300
SSL=yes
Next on your keyboard hit Ctrl + X key together then Y key, you will be back at the prompt.

Home Router setup:
That your Pi or Debian box is connected too.
If your Machines are connected to the second or third router in your house,
it will be a bit tricky to get to your machine, not impossible, but very involved, so best put these machines on your first Router after 
your ISP Fibe optic or cable box or directly on your ISP router. Basically you want your machines getting an IP from the first router into your home.

Login into this router and set your Raspberry Pi or Debian box to get a fix IP, base on their Mac address. This is done in order for the router to always assigned the same IP whenever it reboots to your machine.
Now find the port forwarding section in your router and open 
the ssh port number you assigned above using TCP  to your machine IP address; also port 2460 use UDP. 
save and apply these changes into your router.

Now to get the AMBEserver to start automatically anytime your machine reboot do the following:
Save the script I attached somewhere on your desktop.
The easiest way:
Download and install WinSCP
Now with WinSCP login your Machine with the assign IP your set in the router and ssh port as root & root password. you assigned above.
on the right pane navigate to this directory.
lib/systemd/system 
from the left pane navigate where you save my script and dragged it in that system directory.
now close WinSCP. 

back at the machine run 
cd /etc/lib/systemd/system
chmod 644 ambeserver@...
systemctl daemon-reload
systemctl enable ambeserver@...
Now put your ThumbDV or DVstick30 into your Machine.
run 
reboot.

When your machine is back up, ssh back in and run 
systemctl status ambeserver@...
You want to see ACTIVE in GREEN. Means your server is running and you are set to use your ThumbDV or DVstick30 with BlueDV Ambe on android or BlueDV on you PC.

In the setup in BlueDV Ambe or BlueDV on PC or MAC if home use the Ip address of your machine baudrate 460800 and port 2460, when out of the home or on data on your phone use the hostname you assigned your machine at dyndns or noip.com.

I hope this helps all to get going please post your comments, and let me know if you get it going.

ps:
The ambeserver @ ttyUSB0.service is not showing properly in the post it is all one no space as I type here on this line; but look at the name of my script that is how it should be written.

Re: I want to run BlueDV AMBE Server on Debian.

Eric Jarvi
 

I'm totally new to group and not familiar with this code or dvstick but maybe you have the wrong baud rate?

I saw a similar grinding of the gears at first when using a ThumbDV with BlueDV for windows at the wrong internal baud rate.  The default rate might be defined in the c code you compiled or in some parameter or settings file the a.out executable would accept? If so try editing the code or config file or parameter and using 460800 instead of 230400 for baud rate.

Re: XLX003 Reflector; Anna

Anna,

I’m your tester for the XLX issue.  Here’s what’s NOT happening.

I can call someone using a Wintel (we were on the phone for testing purposes).  He could hear me normally.  When he responded from his Wintel, I heard nothing.  Same thing with another Mac user who called me.  So, it looks like you’re half-way there.

I think you mentioned that you tested and didn’t get any responses.  This may be the reason.

I was at the APRS Summer Gather in North Bend, WA last weekend hanging out with the rest of the NW Digital Radio crew and a bunch of other ham friends, so I didn’t have a chance to commit the code and push things up to the iTunes store.

I wrote the code earlier this evening and did some light testing to make sure it at least pretended to link to the XLX reflectors, and it seemed to work although I didn’t find one with any audio to listen to.

This version is 1.2.2 and is pushed up to the App Store for approval.  As soon as Apple approves, it’ll be marked for availability.

Incidentally, for those wondering why I don’t distribute this off of my own website, here’s the answer:

Buster includes geolocation and mapping functionality.  The “Location” field on your display is actually derived from any DPRS information carried with the connection.  In addition you should be able to click on that location to reveal a popup that contains a small map of where that location actually is.  Again, derived from the DPRS information from that transition.

To be able to use the Apple mapping and geolocation APIs, you have to distribute your app on the App Store and sandbox it.  Otherwise your app cannot connect to the proper services to make it work.  That’s why I do this and why it sometimes takes a while to get things reviewed and put on the store.

Also note that it appears as though opendstar.org is having some issues.  This causes Buster to not be able to get the reflector list and drop all the REF reflectors.  Once Robin fixes this, it should start working again.

You shouldn’t have to do anything but upgrade off the App Store.

OK. When you have it settled, let me know where to stuff the downloaded plist.

Thanks, Anna.

Without the new code, Buster won’t even look for it. Hold tight and I’ll get a new version out.

Thanks, John.  Where do I put this in the Mac?  It must be deep in a Library.  Spotlight doesn’t find those files.

Thanks to both of you for considering a fix for this. The last time I waded into code it was Basic and before that Fortran. U can see how old I am !!

Re: sudo apt-get install ambeserver

 

I have updated instructions at https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/ambe/wiki/AMBEserver-Addendum#Quick-Build-on-Linux

The 'roll your own' (e.g. non-Compass Linux) approach, assumed familiarity with the target sufficient to fill in the 'blanks'.

Like most Linux/Unix command line programs, placing the help flag will expose flags, e.g. AMBEserver -h 

The 3 parameters that may need adjusted are the device, e.g. /dev/ttyUSB0, the speed, e.g. 460800, and the UDP port it will listen on, e.g. 2640.

The instructions are still sparse, but the components are now downloadable to fill in the blanks.

I am pretty sure the ThumbDV I am using is of the second generation, so it doesn't need to be forced to the 460800 baud rate. I had forgot about that requirement for some people, but as you said, it can also be done from the command line.

At the moment I don't have anything running on the Pi/ThumbDV board, but AMBEserver. It is now a custom version, since I added the code to have it write out status to the syslog file, but I never got around to writing a sys.d file since I was starting and stopping custom versions all the time. 

I personally use Buster to connect to reflectors with the setup. (I'm primarily a Mac/Linux person)
