Mike,

If you combine the UDRC with both ircDDBGateway and SFGateway, an ircDDB based system that I have started working on, and SFReflector, you'll have access to both digital networks from either side. I know there are some groups that are open to mixing modes, and you'll be welcome on those systems that are.

Hi everyone,

I was excited to hear the announcement about the UDRC project.

As a recent recipient/owner/trustee of a DR-1X System Fusion repeater, I too was thinking of experimenting with linking up to other digital systems such as D-STAR, Allstar, etc. and immediately, a few thoughts came to mind. 

1- I wonder what Yaesu would think of this?

2- I also wondered about what the various D-STAR networks would think of this?


Well, I got the answer to the first question. I was very (pleasantly) surprised when at last Sunday's System Fusion forum at the 2015 Dayton Hamvention, Bryan Hoyer K7UDR, from NW Digital Systems took the podium and gave the audience a brief overview of their new UDRC project. I wonder if Icom's position will be similar.


Now for the second question. How welcome would other D-STAR sources of digital voice be on the D-STAR network? (US Trust, D Extra, etc.)

Being new to D-STAR, I haven't got a good handle on how well received (or not) D-STAR via System Fusion would be.

I just want to be very clear.  

The UDRC only adds and enables the use of a DR-1X as a D-STAR repeater (and connects to the network using ircddbgateway - NW7DR  A  is my test platform).

It does not transcode between analog or Fusion Digital and D-STAR. 
It looks like the digital world's answer to EchoIRLP - access to multiple networks, but no bridging or transcoding between them.

Noobie Question Serial Port & Sound Card

kj5fa@...
 

These must be really simple things to resolve cause I can't see where anyone else has the issues I am having.

I have the DV3000 card that I am trying to run on a Rpi2.

The first thing I had to change to get my RPi to boot-up after making intial changes(speeding up clock and disabling serial port) to add DV3000 to the Rpi2 was this line:
dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=tty1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline rootwait


I had to change to be:

dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=tty1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p6 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline rootwait


Does that sound right? But I was able to boot-up after making this change.


I did get the results for the AMBEserver test when running the sudo python AMBEtest2.py test.

Installed IRCDDBGateway and setup using examples from the Amateurlogic.tv dv3000.pdf.


When I run the sudo dummyrepeater command, I can not select the USB sound card. The card shows up as a selection in alsamixer, though. And then if I select DVSerial for the Dongle, I have only a slection of none or /dev/ttyAMA0. If I select the AMA0, when I launch dummyrepeater the next time it tells me it can't find the AMBE Dongle on the specified port. How do I know which port this should be looking for?


I am still fairly new at the raspberry pi and linux, so thanks for all the help and patience you can give me.


73s de KJ5FA,

Kevin

Re: Looking for more info

Hi John,
    WinDV is just one option to use w/ the ThumbDV on Windows.  You can also use the G4KLX software which works great also.  It looks like the Dutch-Star web site is down.  I can' t reach it either.  Considering the Dayton Hamfest is kicking off, I'd try to have some patience as far as getting a reply from Fred.  He's usually very quick to reply.  I'd suspect he's probably traveling.  
    While you're waiting,  here's some pointers to getting your ThumbDV working w/ the G4KLX software.  First make sure you check out the NW Digital Resource Page:


You'll find a link to this handy PDF file that has several screenshots on how to setup ircDDBGateway & DummyRepeater.  


It actually covers setting up the DV3000 & the ThumbDV on Linux & Windows.  I highly recommend grabbing the latest versions of both ircDDBGateway & DummyRepeater from the Yahoo Groups.  Also grab the AMBEServerWin file from the first URL.

Follow the instructions for using the ThumbDV as a network device.  This will save you from having audio issues while TX/RX.   There's plenty of web sites out there showing how all this is setup.  It might seem a little overwhelming at first, but I promise, it's fun.  I've been on D-Star over a year now and enjoyed it a lot.  In that time, I've bought the ID-91AD, the 51A+, the 31A, an 880 for mobile use, a 70cm DVAP, and now the ThumbDV and the Star*DV.  That's one of the biggest strengths D-Star has over most other digital modes.  There's plenty of options out there. :-)  I hope the info gets you started.  73 de KB7SQI!

Steve, kb7sqi


Re: Looking for more info

Fran Miele <fran@...>
 

Yes, Ircddbgateway and Dummy Repeater. You can get both from their yahoo groups. Ircddbgateway group and PCRepeaterController group for Dummy repeater.

Just look in the files section of each group and get the latest versions form the BETA file area.
