Dummyrepeater Issue

Mike Besemer
 

Hello all,

Still having issues with getting my PiDV up and running.  Have moved to a Pi 3B+ and now have AMBEserver and ircddbgateway installed and running.  I am using /dev/ttyS0 for the PiDV.  (Both installed from Synaptic Package Manager).  Dummyrepeater was also installed from Synaptic.

When I start AMBEserver, I get a message that it is listening on Port 2460. I also see traffic on ircddbgateway, so I feel confident that both are working.

Dummyrepeater starts normally, but I think there is a configuration issue.  I have a PiDV installed on the Pi 3B+ GPIO pins.

When I go to configure it, as I understand it, under Dongle, I should select DV Serial, but when I do that, dummyrepeater cannot find the dongle.  If I select Network’ and enter the local IP of the Pi, then the dongle is found and I can transmit.  However, when I connect to a reflector, all I get bad is R2D2.  Same for the Echo reflector.

$ sudo python AMBEtest2.py produces:

Any pointers?
