Richard,

You don't appear to have a G2 callsign registration, you can check at http://query.ke5bms.com/index.php

Find a local G2 Gateway and follow these directions: 
http://www.dstargateway.org/D-Star_Registration.html

There is a gateway in Corona https://wb6ba.dstargateway.org/Dstar.do but you can register on another (but only register on one) -- http://www.dstarusers.org/repeaters.php?repeatersort=5

I have a brand new NWDigitalRadio.com Thumb DV3000U and the "DV Node for Windows" application keeps locking up. I have tried to configure it as per the directions but it just keeps dying and closing on its own. Also, I almost got to the step of setting a gateway and continue to get a "ERROR!! : The registration of this CallSign not approved !" message. 


So it is obvious I'm going to need to get some handholding on getting this to work. Can I get help via this group of is there another support option for me?


Thanks,

AMBE is a vocoder, meaning it is trying to recognize speech, not just audio, and then reproduce it on decode.  Cath is saying she has found a person's voice that the vocoder isn't recognizing and coding in such a way as to reproduce properly out the other end.

Still a totally ambiguous reply.

Just downloaded it on my Macbook Air.  Made a SKYWARN contact on Reflector 33c.

Interface is simple, easy, and intuitive.  I would ask that Mouse-over info be added for functions.

Also, even though I had the drivers for the THDV installed, Buster did not see the device and had to reboot.  

Great work!

UDRX / Pi2

Ah...great news.  The product is moving forward towards production with improvements.  Using the Pi2 will merge the UDRX into the already existing knowledge base for that popular computer hardware.  Well done to the NWdigitalRadio Team.  Let's hope the marriage is quick and easy.

The output of a discriminator tap is analog. The DV3000 has a digital interface - you would need to - at least - do an analog to digital version (and probably more processing) to connect the two together.

Will this work with a scanner discriminator tap?

Hi Bryan

I'll upload the WAV to your file section then Bryan.

The 1st half of the WAV file is normal unprocessed audio, a guy then a gal.
The 2nd half of the WAV file is the same two people but after being encoded then decoded by AMBE chip.

The womans voice is fine, but the guys voice gets somewhat changed in the process. Appears to happen with just about any AMBE+2 rate setting. Not tried the AMBE-2000 or AMBE-1000 rates though, only tried the AMBE-3000 rates.

DMR on UDRC Was: DRM

"John D. Hays" <john@...>
 

Hi Chris,

I assume you mean DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) rather than DRM (Digital Radio Mondiale or Digital Rights Management).

The UDRC has an inbuilt DAC/ADC which would permit a variety of modems to be developed.  These might include GMSK, xSK, 4FSK, C4FM, ...  It is an open platform so independent software developers can implement whichever modem they need for a particular protocol.  Initially it will support a GMSK modem for D-STAR (operating in parallel with the inbuilt DR-1X Fusion controller), but others can be added later.  For example G4KLX's MMDVM project is working toward a family of modems and would be a good candidate if ported to the Raspberry Pi 2 or B.

Once you have a modem, then you need a protocol and routing stack for whichever system with which you wish to communicate.  For D-STAR the UDRC will support dstarrepeater and ircddbgateway.

DMR presents a couple of challenges and, as a company, NW Digital Radio has no current plan to implement it.  The primary challenge is the intellectual property licensing from Motorola required to have a legally licensed implementation.  Some amateur radio developers are ignoring this requirement and stand at risk to violation of patent law. (I am not an intellectual property lawyer so my observations should not be taken as legal advice.)  We have also not committed to a TDMA specification at this time (Though on the UDRX we are working for very fast TX/RX turnaround since this will be important for higher data rate throughput).

ooowa, I found someones voice that the AMBE codec doesn't work properly with. What a problem that would be for said person if they tried to use a system that uses the AMBE codec.
