Re: Raspberry Pi Zero

Bob KV4PC
 

Im interested in kind of a specific endgame, a "chewing gum" stack in the Pi Zero-W form factor that adds up to a DMR or Dstar transceiver, analog audio to RF and back as well as behaving like a low power access point/repeater or other DV interface. It seems like nearly all the pieces are out there.  The PiDV has the right function, but its a 26 pin device, and sort of an odd shape relative. The new Zumspot/MMDVM_HS board with the ADS7021 radio modem in Zero-hat format is an interesting piece of the puzzle. 

I have had a guy offer me a PiDV almost immediately after I posted. Wanted me to make an offer. I put it back on him to give me a price. We'll see how that goes. Certainly it will be useful to prototype with.

Most people find the ThumbDV sufficient for AMBEserver support.

The lazy main developer of the idea and code has had some significant life events happen in the past six months that have taken almost all of my hobby time away from them.  Some of those life events are coming to a conclusion, and that should give them more time to work on the idea and hopefully come out with a first release of the code soon-ish.  That developer usually is motivated by showing things off at conferences and is intending to attend MicroHAMS.  You can draw your own conclusions…

Re: Net TNC

Steve Stroh
 

I’m going to summarize imperfectly. 

The intent is to productize a Raspberry Pi 3 + UDRC2 + enclosure using simplified, streamlined software and sell it as a turnkey unit much like TNCs like the KPC-9612 is sold through Amateur Radio retailers. There would be multiple versions including one that would bundle the “micro radio” that they also discussed. 

Agreed - puzzling that they haven’t discussed it more publicly.

Re: re dvthumb dongle

 

There is no firmware. 

Go to the file section of the AMBE subgroup in this group. There is a test program for ThumbDV. If it passes that, then it is likely a configuration issue or a weak USB port.

Re: re dvthumb dongle

 

Yes the ThumbDV can be used with the newer Betas of BlueDV for Windows -- see http://www.pa7lim.nl/bluedv-windows/ -- about half way down the page.

Re: KC3ESS B Dstar repeater

 

Ted,

I would check out our web site (www.openquad.net) on the TAB "What's new" and read up on the information concerning the Transcoding Server.   For demos and direct understanding, you are more than welcome to check in and chat with us on X-Reflector  "XRF757 C" about how or what type of configuration you might be able to work out with an experiment with implementing DMR <==> D-Star.

Good morning, I hope someone has figured out how to do this. Internet at the site is not an option. If anyone has figured out how to do this, I am all ears.












For over 2 years I have had my Dstar repeater running at my remote site with no internet using a gateway and link radio at my home. I am using a clever device from Advanced Repeater Systems at the site called a Dstar repeater control board that enables transmit when it hears a 4800 baud digital signal (Dstar) at the remote site.

I would like to include DMR on the repeater using an MMDVM type board giving me both modes however the ARS board by design only passes Dstar.

I figure some clever Repeater Builder type has figured out how to do this so more than one digital mode can pass through the repeater.

I realize I could just put the MSF5000 in carrier squelch but then any garbage could pass.

Thoughts are most welcome.
