I don't think so -- the program is called DummyRepeater.

DV3000 in Japan

"John D. Hays" <john@...>
 

Note from our new friend Satoru, JA1SCW, on Olive Island in Japan


Since I started D-Star about two years ago, I have been looking for a solution
for a portable rig like the photo which consists of Raspberry Pi, DV3000, 
sound card, software, WiFi, battery and smartphone. You may use them as
a friend of your daily exercise, walking!!

I made hotspots and node adapters in total six to seven sets, but this is the
very first ever set which is capable for accessing the networks supported by 
ircDDBgateway software. At this moment of time, only remaining issue is
PTT as I prefer PTTing by using a speaker-mic rather than hitting a PTT 
button on a smartphone screen.  

I will be soon 70 years young! hi This requires skills for a soldering and
programming but hope everybody could overcome difficulties you may
be faced to. Thanks to a great product, DV3000 and people contributed
for launching it.  Very best 73s,  JA1SCW@ Olive Island in Japan 

Thanks,  Satoru (Radio Name: Steve)

To: pcrepeatercontroller@...


 

Well John I am very impressed with the dv3000d now that after rebuilding dummyrepeater with alsa-lib

flag linker on fedora, The audio is excellent.




I made the new rpm here ;


dummyrepeater-20140519-1.x86_64.rpm 2014-Jun-24 14:02:46114.7Kapplication/x-rpm


in redhat, ...  alsa-lib is the dependency 


I had done the same thing with pidora, direct on the Pi.


I can do a alsa > rpm for CenTOS also if anyone wants it. Like fldigi , using portaudio in linux is a waste of time. I am using virtual environments now to build to keep library environments sterile, even for fedore, crazy as it seems running a virtual fedora within a fedora host, but effective.


I also have a debian environment for banana pi work were I can build the kernels etc, CenTOS & windows environments, it is very useful.


Now that is done , I look forward to what we can do with dmr / P25 etc in the future.



Adrian ... vk4tux


Banana Pi and DV3000

john@...
 

We have been asked about the Banana Pi.


I don't have a Banana Pi in hand yet. but Adrian VK4TUX has one and has done some testing. 

The Banana Pi and DV3000 mate physically and electrically.  The problem right now is that the libraries that we use on the Raspberry Pi are not fully ported, but they are being actively worked on by the library developers.

So, its premature to say that the DV3000 will run on the Banana Pi "out of the box" -- but I'm confident we'll get there.

Motorola may claim that they hold essential patents, it does not mean that they actually do. Certainly, the dPMR Association have examined the Motorola claims and deemed them irrelevant.

Gentlemen

1.Google brought Motorola Cellular (Mobile Phones) Not the Land Mobile group (Radio)
So Motorola still owns the IP in Dpmr and DMR
The correct names are "Motorola Mobility" (For phones) and "Motorola Solutions" (For radios). Yes, Google bought Motorola Mobility, "Stripped away the patents" (Which is a misnomer in the first place... The reason Google wanted the patents was to PROTECT their Android partners, rather than get rich off of them... I would argue this was a net "Good" for Android consumers) and sold the rights to use the Motorola Mobility name to Lenovo (Which is hardly summarized by the derogatory use of "The Chinese;" I would argue that Lenovo has been a good custodian of the IBM Thinkpad line, and I hope for similarly good custodianship over the Razr and Moto X lines).

2.Standards are written by committees and Motorola is a member of the ETSI DMR committee
that's the way it goes !
You can read more about it here http://www.etsi.org/index.php/about/iprs-in-etsi
I wasn't attacking Motorola for having been in a position to be unopposed in patenting stuff they didn't invent; That's just good business... I criticize the patent system for being open to this kind of abuse.  

Furthermore, I don't argue that there is anything we can do about it... I DID argue that it sucks, and we, as hobbyists and consumers, are going to be beat over the head with the Motorola Legal War Club that this abuse of the patent system affords them.  Once again, they get rich, and we get dumb.  Works out well for our evil corporate overlords.  


Re: A question about dmr function.

kc5zrq@...
 

I don't think licensing is an issue as long as UDRX isn't being shipped with full DMR capability.  I am not an attorney, but I glanced over the patents and figured most of them are integral to the AMBE codec, and therefore any licensing would covered by DVSI.  If you purchase the DV3000, then you have purchased the rights to use most of the patents related to DMR.  Other patents are not relevant if you don't intend to make use of them, such as being able to automatically switch between FM voice and Digital modes.  Other patents involve the TDMA modulation and if the radio is inherently capable of the modulation, and then someone writes software that makes use of the modulation...  I don't know, but I would think if THAT required licensing, then the open and public requirement for use in the amateur service wouldn't apply.

Re: A question about dmr function.

We get past it by refusing to use their patented devices and 'standards'. We can use and help develop open alternatives like Codec2 rather than furthering the deployment of AMBE.



[Moderator's note:  The patents in question have nothing to do with AMBE, it is other technology, see http://www.motorolasolutions.com/web/Business/Technology_Licensing/Documents/dmr_essential_properties.pdf ]


Re: A question about dmr function.

"qrv@..." <qrv@...>
 

Google bought a chunk of Motorola, stripped it of patents, then
dumped the carcass to the Chinese.

One would have to check to see if the tech-Borg (errr, Google) now
owns the dPMR patents, or Motorola.

BTW: If they truly did not develops the patents perhaps they could
be sued for fraud, or the patents revisited by the Patent Office
and vacated to the public domain?

In a just world with an honest government ... I can dream ...

I had the understanding that Motorola also had essential patents on
dPMR as well; See
http://www.motorolasolutions.com/US-EN/Technology_Licensing/Standards-Based+Licensing

It simply blows my mind that Motorola can hold essential patents for
standards not written by them. It seems like a blatant violation of
the intent of the US patent system, as it neither protects the
inventor nor encourages further innovation. It makes Motorola rich,
and keeps even hobbyists from learning about supporting technologies.
Yet, Motorola lays claim to these patents, and insists on charging
fees. I doubt we will see a solution to this that any of us will
like.
