Re: ircDDB dashboard not displaying links

 

Isn't it ircDDBGateway, not ircDDB? Two different animals.

Recently my dashboard has stopped displaying links except briefly when they change status.

It's this dashboard

Probably unrelated ... but when I went to restart the dashboard I found this warning message:

Re: ircDDB dashboard not displaying links

Actually It’s ircDDBGateway *Dashboard*

And it’s from the NW Digital web pages.

Re: ircDDB dashboard not displaying links

Ken Jamrogowicz
 

Just to clarify - when the status of linking changes, the web page produced by the dashboard is correct. This lasts for 5-20 seconds and then the list of linked stations disappears. The headers are still there but no data table.  If I unlink or link one of the repeaters, the table comes back but only lasts 5-20 seconds then disappears.

SOLVED: ircDDB dashboard not displaying links

Ken Jamrogowicz
 

Somehow I managed to start up TWO copies of the ircddbgatewayd daemon. One running under opendv and another running under user "pi"

One of these was connecting and the other was not.  They were both providing data to the dashboard.....  

Looking for information to build Analog/Digital Hotspot

N9UMJ
 

I've heard some chatter about an analog hotspot, I believe it was an mmdvm-urdc, I would like to find out more and to see if there are any boards already available the could shield to a pi?

I saw where NW Digital had a urdc board for Dstar, is this something that could be used or is another board or an arduino required.

I would like to add one to my DR1x repeater and have another as a mobile hotspot?

Thanks for all replies

Re: Looking for information to build Analog/Digital Hotspot

Lloyd Mitchell
 

I suggest you look into the STM32 type boards for the repeater.

One is the http://www.repeater-builder.com/products/stm32-dvm.html board for the repeater interface

I highly suggest the DV-MEGA with a rasp pi as the mobile unit both of the boards can perform very well with the Pi-Star Firmware http://www.pistar.uk/index.php

There are many other boards and setup, but this one I have found to work with minimal other interfaces or mobile routers

Using the UDRC-II with Dire Wolf for Winlink packet radio communications

Chris - KC9AD
 

At this year's MicroHAMS Digital Conference, I attended John Langner's talk on Dire Wolf. I was led to believe that the Dire Wolf modem would enable Winlink packet on the Raspberry Pi + UDRC combination (aka Digi-Pi). But implementation details were sketchy, at least for me. So I did some Internet searching and experimentation, and I came up with some scattered bits of information that I put together to write this:

http://www.doutre.org/acs/rpi-packet.pdf

I make no claims to its completeness or accuracy. It works for me. If it helps you to advance the state of your art, pass it on. 73.

XC-3006 First Look

David [kg5eiu]
 

Just received a XC-3006 USB Dongle.  I plan on using it for a 
Multi Protocol Gateway Reflector Server.  



More Photos in my gallery.

Re: XC-3006 First Look

Ken Jamrogowicz
 

FWIW - I have compiled the XLX software and have my new XC-3006 running with ambed. With two ThumbDV's and the XC plugged in, it says I have 8 channels available.  If you leave the console window open where you started ambed, you can see it processing any streams that come into the xlx reflector.  

Of course, if you close the console window, then there is nothing to look at - although the program keeps running in the background.

I also receive my XC3006. I would also like to create a multi platform gateway.
But I'm a newbie at reflectors and gateways and having trouble finding a step by step how to or even a start here to do this?

I'm not looking for an XLR for dummies , Just a step chart for setup and what the XC 3006 will.do.

I'm a little disappointed that NW Digital isn't more supportive with documentation than they are?

Re: XC-3006 First Look

 

Let me be very clear. 

NW Digital Radio built and distributed the hardware (boards) for the XLX group, on the understanding that all software support for ambed and the XLX reflector system would come from the XLX group. 

NW Digital Radio fully supports it's products to the extent that they are NW Digital Radio's design and construction. The XC-3006/USB-3006 was not designed by NW Digital Radio, it was designed by  Jean-Luc Deltombe  (LX3JL) who is one of the principals behind the XLX system.  NW Digital Radio assisted by using their manufacturing capability to make the boards available to the community, as a one time build. (It is not a regular product of NW Digital Radio) 

NW Digital Radio warrants the boards for 90 days for any manufacturing defects.  The boards that have shipped have all been run through the ambedtest and passed.

Information on where to get software support is stated here:  http://nwdigitalradio.com/xc-3006-full-build/

Thank You for that claification..It would have been nice to have seen that before I stuck my foot in my mouth.

I'm still very interested in pursuing the project, but having trouble finding information directly related to the XC-3006 and what it is completely capable of doing. 

I've already been to the sites you posted and have been going over the information,  but have several questions about the board but not found much discussion or files related to the device.

I rarely post for help unless I have trouble finding the information, I'm looking for, Suppose I was expecting to find a forum just for the XC-3006 discussion.

We are in the process of building a statewide multi mode digital linked repeater network with 9 high profile sites already running on digital 7  on Analog covering 2/3 of our state with plans of covering all over to digital/Analog and 3 new sites being constructed in the next few months with my company providing tower sites.and WiFi to the sites and this is one of many components the build.

This was my first purchase from NWdigital and had past purchasing experience with the company or its products. 
I will.say that there are several other products that we are considering from Nw digital for this project and others and have gotten very good references on your products.
 Doug Gooden knew about our projects refered me to you for the XC-3006 to make sure I got in before the production deadline.

That's why I was under the assumption that it was a NW Digital product and project.

Thank You again for your reply and claification.

Re: XC-3006 First Look

 

The simple startup on a Linux box is to pull the source from https://github.com/LX3JL/xlxd and compile it.

You will use the instructions at https://github.com/LX3JL/xlxd/tree/master/ambed to build the daemon and run ambed (which is what talks to the USB-3006 (XC-3006 product number) device.
You can test that it is working using https://github.com/LX3JL/xlxd/tree/master/ambedtest

(This is the extent of our testing)

From there forward use the documentation at  https://github.com/LX3JL/xlxd  and the xlxd-star Yahoo! group (this is where to post your questions on setup and configuration) to setup your reflector.

John,

Was the XC-3006 supposed to come with power pin?  Case cut?  Or the screws?

 

I found screws, modified the case, but don’t so far have the right power plug size.  Is it a standard you can advise on?

For power: I found an old 12 volt wall wart (1 ampere I think) and chopped off the plug, replacing it with the tiny plug that came with the 3006.

I double–checked that the center pin was positive and just plugged it in.
