Re: ThumbDV Fusion support?

"John D. Hays" <john@...>
 

There are a couple of people working on Fusion support.

What has been discovered is that Yaesu has some hybrid encoding in at least one mode that is not directly supported by the AMBE3000 chip.  Yaesu is likely a source licensee and can mix and match components for their particular implementation.

I would venture there will be Fusion enabled software (by a 3rd party, not NW Digital Radio directly) but may have some limitations due to the Yaesu implementation.

Re: PiDV + UDRC = Dstar, Fusion, P25, DMR?

 

It is possible to make the connections (either a PiDV or just use a ThumbDV in one of the USB ports), but the applications to operate all of those protocols do not currently exist.

The AMBE-3000 is the vocoder, it doesn't provide any of the radio protocols, it turns voice into AMBE and AMBE into voice, the rest is handled in applications.

Also there is some intellectual property attached to some of the commercial protocols that should be licensed.

Would it be possible to attach the PiDV board to one of the vacant headers on the UDRC to make a board capable of receiving all AMBE3000R based protocols, connecting the beast to a VHF/UHF radio such as the Icom IC-208H via the mini-DIN?

How can I make a DSTAR and or Fusion hotspot for portable mobile operation?

 

All,


I would like to make something like the DV Mega dualband radio board on a R-PI using NW digital products.  What is the hardware and software requirements?  I am interested in DSTAR, C4FM and DMR reflectors via cell phone WIFI.  Can it be done today?

John,

Since there seems to be a limited amount of documentation around the hardware supported here, could you please clarify if Compass supports wifi?  

In reading your response, and lack of mention about wifi, I can only assume that it doesn't exist at the kernel level anymore and the only networking option for anyone running Compass is wired.

If this is not the case, is there support for issues with Compass?

UDRC on Packet

"John D. Hays" <john@...>
 

There is a new Wiki entry on using the UDRC™ on packet radio with the direwolf soundcard TNC

See: https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/udrc/wiki/UDRC%E2%84%A2-and-Direwolf-Packet-Modem

Using the UDRC™ + Raspberry Pi 3 + 7" Touchscreen Display + a FT-817 (or other radio) makes a great little desktop Xastir based APRS viewer.

Re: Issue with AMBEserverGPIO instructions for DV3000

"John D. Hays" <john@...>
 

As it says at the top of http://nwdigitalradio.com/dv3000-ambeserver/ this is being refactored.  AMBEserver is currently being built as part of DummyRepeater using the configure and make process ... start here https://github.com/dl5di/OpenDV/blob/master/README.md 

There is a prebuilt package as part of Compass Linux  (images at http://archive.compasslinux.org/)

If you are running Compass Linux you can install with

sudo apt-get install ambeserver

It's been a few years since I played with my DV3000 and decided to put it on a newer Pi running Jessie.  I found that while going through the instructions to get AMBEserverGPIO installed (method 2) that the Makefile is missing from the git repository for DV3000.  Is there a newer process or can someone provide the Makefile so the DV3000 build can be completed for AMBEserverGPIO?


Instructions I am following are here: http://nwdigitalradio.com/dv3000-ambeserver/

Re: UDRC™ installation instructions for the DR-1X now available

"John D. Hays" <john@...>
 

The Compass Distribution is Raspbian Jesse with kernel support for UDRC and future NW Digital Radio products.

If you plug the Pi into Ethernet, it will DHCP an address, and if your router lists what addresses it has handed out, you can SSH into it and make adjustments.  If you want a full graphic environment, I suggest installing xrdp (apt-get install xrdp) and use remote desktop (Microsoft for most platforms) to access the desktop.

Thanks.

In an effort to be prepared to plugin the URDC hat when it arrives I thought I would download the image and setup my micro SD card. Went to archive.compasslinux.org and downloaded zip file. No problems. Extracted the image and installed it on the SD card. No problem. Ethernet cable works but I cannot get the Edimax wifi dongle to work. the Pi sees it and loads the module for it. by doing lsusb it shows the wlan adapter on Bus 001 Device 004 exactly where it does in my other Pi distributions. Iwlist wlan0 scan shows the available networks. So I know the adapter is working and seeing the wireless world. The Pi and Edimax wifi adapter work great with several other distros.  


I cannot do much configuration with the Pi plugged into the ethernet cable as I do not have an HDMI monitor there. Where I have an HDMI monitor I do not have an available wired network connection. So where I can see what I am doing I have no network and where I have network I cannot see. (Could be a country song there, hi) 

I recognize this is not a NW Digital issue but I can find very little information concerning the compass distribution and what is built in, what works and what does not. I have followed several different step by step guides to get it to work all with failure. A little bit of direction would be very helpful and I would be grateful. 

Thanks for all the help!

Re: Instructions for the UDRC™ installation for the Yaesu DR-1X

 

Hi Nathan,

If you want to run WIRES-X in Yaesu System Fusion Digital mode a FTM-100DR or FTM-400DR should be used.  I have run for several months with the FTM-100DR and my repeater with the UDRC™ attached.

No special configuration of the repeater is required, other than having it pass the right mode (Analog or Digital).  I run the repeater AUTO/AUTO.  On the WIRES-X you have to pick analog or digital during setup.

As a side note, for stress testing, I ran the DR-1X with a FTM-100DR/WIRES-X in digital mode attached to "Americas Link" (the busiest english speaking room) and D-STAR attached to REF001C (the busiest reflector) and let them "fight it out" for weeks.  The repeater never locked up and it switched appropriately depending on traffic source (RF has precedence).  One would not do this in general practice, but it was an interesting test.

As you note, the node radio is set up with complimentary frequencies to the repeater, e.g. like a user station.

BTW, the Windows based WIRES-X software does seem to crash fairly often (daily?), so having the node where you can monitor and restart the program is an advantage.
