It is the DVSI AMBE 3000 chip with interfacing to the GPIO port on a Raspberry Pi B/B+ 

Software is available and working for a couple of D-STAR applications and the DV3000 can be accessed by software running on the RasPi or over the network to the RasPi where the DV3000 is installed.

See http://nwdigitalradio.com/category/dv3000 news, articles, and links to setup instructions.

 
Has someone created a D-Star app for this?  Thus I could use it now, with R-Pi, much like the DV dongel is used.  But with the radio then I have a DV Access Point (radio).


This is accomplished with DummyRepeater/ircDDBGateway for microphone/speaker on the RasPi or other network attached computer, talking to the D-STAR network.  

An access point would require a modem (DVRPT V1, GMSK Modem, DVAP), which could also be attached to the RasPi.
 
Thus if I were to want to do DMR all is needed is similar software.

That's a longer discussion, but at least one independent developer has attached the DV3000 to open source DMR (and more) protocol software (DSD).  Experimental at this point.
 

Is this a correct assumption?

Update on setting up AMBEServer

"John D. Hays" <john@...>
 

Some edits on setting up a DV3000, including an init.d script for starting and stopping the DV3000

http://nwdigitalradio.com/dv3000-ambeserver

BTW, I have obtained a Raspberry Pi B+ and confirmed that the DV3000 works with it.  I'll put a note up on http://nwdigitalradio.com in the next day or two.

Re: DV3000 going International

I don't see why it won't, as there is someone else using the AMBE 3000 USB dongle from DVSI to do this.

So you are using DSD just to decode process the discriminator in like what what Johnathan Naylor, G4KLX did with his D-star client?  Presumably then you strip off the voice portion and send it to the DV3000 for decoding/encoding?  Sounds like much like what Johnathans implementation does as it can send it off to a DV dongle.  The only difference is his doesn't support DMR.

If you configure your mail program to display all of the normally-hidden headers, you will see:

List-Unsubscribe: UniversalDigitalRadio-unsubscribe@...>

What this means is that you need to send an email to

You should then receive a message requiring you to reply in order to complete the unsubscribe process.

Re: ethernet linking

"John D. Hays" <john@...>
 

D-STAR DD mode, support of which is planned, can be used in Ethernet bridge mode.  However, the data rate is such that you probably  want to filter out most Ethernet traffic and instead use IP routing.

Some Ethernet devices are very chatty (e.g. Windows boxes for example)

It's just audio you can run into any TNC. I'll try it one of these
days but I don't expect it to be much more than running the list
output of the TNC function through a line counter (wc -l)

These days it's not unreasonable to record all the audio of a channel
for future testing.

9612 Plus, YES

Timewave PK-96, YES we have one

Argent T3-9670, I'll look into that one

Soundmodem on Pi, we'll cover with Beta Test

Could we do something like this for 9k6 data? It would be nice to
have known test data.

The UDRX should operate with any 9600 TNC but here is the short list of what we are testing with internally.
Kantronics KPC-9612
I hope you are using the KPC-9612+ - the non-plus is broken out of the
box - just ask Dennis.

Yaesu VX-8G
Kenwood D710
TNC-Pi 9600
The Timewave PK-96 is the basic 9600 TNC available today...
http://www.timewave.com/products/pk96.html

While it's early in its product life cycle, the T3-9670 is going to be
a game changer as basic UHF data radio.

https://www.argentdata.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=171

The future of data like this (IM!HO) is software - we have at least
two significant soundcard modem packages that can theoretically handle
9k6.
