Re: DPlus connection to REF001C failed - WinDV on WIn10 #cal-invite

The problem I reported was caused by a defective router. However, even when I took my netbook to another location I found only the Free*Star VE3TNK (ve3tnk.homelinux.net) callsign server worked. 

I tried WinDV a couple of days ago and I just tried it again (at a different location on a different computer). Both times/places it would not connect even using the Free*Star server.  the problem is the server is unreachable. I can't ping it. Tracert shows request timed out an the 9th hop.

WinDV has not been updated in a long time. Apparently there have been enough changes in DSTAR that WinDV no longer works. 

I followed the advice I got on https://www.facebook.com/groups/DSTAR.Users.Group downloaded and installed BlueDV. It works great with the ThumbDV.

The only disadvantage is I can't use it on my old Dell Mini 9 with XP. But there is a Linux version so I will probably convert the Mini 9 to Linux Mint.

DRAWS Production Status

by k7udr

DRAWS Early Adopters!

Sales has gone over our initial run. That combined with an industry wide shortage on capacitors, has delayed assembly. We hope to have them shipping by the end of the month. We will confirm later this week once the shortages have been filled.

Thanks,
Bryan K7UDR

Re: Shipping

 

Your order is being processed and expect that it will go out today or tomorrow.  At the time it is fulfilled, and email with a tracking number will go to the email address that was associated with the order at the time the order was placed.

The orders are sent US Mail and it will leave from Friday Harbor, WA and travel to North Carolina.

Thanks for the information, John. A friend bought this for me as a gift, so you have 2 email addresses. One is associated with his card and the other is mine which was entered on the "Ship To" side of the form. Is there any way I can assure that I get that email at w4wno@... instead of him?

Just use the drop down on the left, select DMR then enter the TG, ie 3100, hit the connect switch, then green telephone symbol, quick key for immediate access

I googled "OTG cable".  Do you use that to attach the ThumbDV to your cell phone?  BlueDV?  73, KC2NM

Yes. On the go cable. Not all cell phones can use an OTG. My phones are Samsung  J7 and a J3. Most one to two year old Cells are able to use them. Battery drain on mine runs 10 to 15 percent per hour running Thumb dv, on average.

Thumb DV no REF Dplus connection

Michael Register
 

I have been trying to connect to a local ref29a, the thumb dv says no, can connect to xrf and dcs but not ref reflector.
Has anyone had this problem or knows how to fix it?

Re: Thumb DV no REF Dplus connection

 

If you are able to connect to XRF reflectors, your ThumbDV is fine.

This is a software application question.  The applications look up reflectors and make the connection and handle the protocol.  The ThumbDV converts audio to AMBE and AMBE to audio, everything else is the application.

If you list what software you are using, and any error messages you are getting, someone may be able to help.  BTW, it would REF029A (in Logan UT), the 0 is significant.

The right subgroup is https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/ambe/topics

Two typical blockers are, either your callsign isn't registered with US Trust (http://regist.dstargateway.org) or you have a bad address for the reflector.

Does someone have a schematic for the thumbdv? If available, I would like a copy. If not , I need to know the value of a few parts.

Trouble With Dstar

Andy Pagoota
 

I just received and set up my ThumbDV with BlueDV software. DMR works perfectly and I love it! Dstar is another story. I can receive just fine, but for some reason when I transmit (on REF061C for example) no one can hear me and I'm not showing up in last heard (here: https://nj6n.com/dplusmon/). I'm sure it's because I've set something wrong, but can't figure out what. Any ideas?

Re: Trouble With Dstar

I'm having the same problem if you find out anything let me know.

When I first started with Dstar I had that issue , can’t fully remember the solution but it may have been : Gateway in second mycall not set correctly
