BTW,  ThumbDV™ is the only AMBE-3000 USB device from NW Digital Radio.  The test programs for it are not guaranteed to work with other manufacturers' products, nor do we provide advice on their use.

Should work. Compass Linux is deprecated, the UDRC/DRAWS™ driver support is now in Raspbian Buster.

Thanks Stefsan - I just wanted to know what I was trying was feasible.  I have tried it on a Pi Rasbian image, a Compass image and a Debian laptop, all yield this same result -

/dev/ttyUSB0 exists in each case. 

root@pi:/usr/lib/systemd/system# /usr/sbin/AMBEserver -p 2460 -i /dev/ttyUSB0
AMBEserver: Starting...
AMBEserver: Opened serial port /dev/ttyUSB0 at 230400 bps.
AMBEserver: Couldn't find start byte in serial data
AMBEserver: error receiving response to reset
AMBEserver: Could not initialize the DV3K!


Also tried with 460800

root@pi:/usr/lib/systemd/system# /usr/sbin/AMBEserver -p 2460 -i /dev/ttyUSB0 -s 460800

Hi ,

DV30 runns perfect on AMBE Server.

Dont use Compass Linux use a standart Raspian Image, after installation use AMBE Server installation from github source

https://github.com/marrold/AMBEServer

its very easy to compile

Google youtube shows how easy it is, Have running it here since 1 year without no problems

I'm running into trouble with getting the service started on a Pi3 with Compass and a DVstick 30.  It sounds like the DVstick is compatible but can someone please confirm.  Thanks!

Re: ThumbDV & BlueDV

I only have Fusion working at this point. Questions on DMR Brandmeister:

Do I need my DMR ID in both Hotspot and Simple?
What should QRG be set to?
What should Brandmeister password be? It is passw0rd now.

Thanks for any help.

Thank you Different David :)
Yes, I had discovered that, but I couldn't confirm that i was connected to the correct TG -if any at all. If you choose from the list, the TG# appears when you 'transmit'. I checked all of the files in the BlueDV folder in Documents, but none of those files contain TG info.

Mike,

 

You should be able to type directly into that dropdown box the TG number you want.

From there it will be cached and from that point on you can select it with the drop down.

Hello David.
Firstly, thank you for your continuing efforts on the BlueDV project, it is most appreciated.
I do have a question. Could you point me to the DMR TG (Talkgroup) configuration file? I need to make an entry as the one I am trying to connect to does not appear in the drop-down list box.

Thanks in advance.

Re: bluedv ambe bluetooth PTT speaker / mic

Thanks Gwen,  What you have said about Zello matches my experience.  The Inrico might be a good solution.  My cell plan is with Google Fi so I can get an additional sim and pay as I go.

What I found to be far more reliable was the PTT in the Inrico T320 cell/handheld that I keep around for emergencies, with its own pay-as-you-go SIM card from Ting dot com. With my daily driver phone, I stick with the touchscreen controls for all of those apps, because there's NO consistency from app to app. I have about a half-dozen different Bluetooth "PTT" button devices, most of which only work with one app. Zello is the WORST offender of the bunch, and it has a dreadful tendency to start up when you're trying to use the PTT in another app and steal the focus. I had to stop using Zello so the other apps would work properly at all! So I just use Zello on the Inrico for the most part, and use BlueDV, Teamspeak 3, and Echolink on my regular phone.

You'd probably have better results trying to contact iTalkie, but be prepared to give Google Translate a workout to do so.

Joe,

  What happens when you click on the transmit button on the lower right of your screen? Also it is recommended to use a headset for better transmit audio.

I am primarily a HF operator and know about zero about DMR, Fusion and Dstar.  I do have a DMR ID. I just upgraded from 9570 to 9581, but is the same issue.

Would someone be willing to call me and educate me on how all this works.
