Re: Are the units ready for sale and what can I do with it?

"John D. Hays" <john@...>
 

We would not hide sales availability! :)  [Looking to be soon!]  Watch http://nwdigitalradio.com

There will be D-STAR support. (Hotspot in base radio, user radio with DV3000)

DMR will require software development that NW Digital Radio does not plan to do, but invites anyone who wants to undertake it to do so -- it requires technology that may require some licensing from Motorola and TDMA.

Re: Server dont start Img file anyone ?

"John D. Hays" <john@...>
 

Please post the output of AMBEtest2.py

Did you download and build dv3000d?

Is dv3000d running?

What program are you using?  DummyRepeater,  AMBEtools, ... and are you running them on the Pi or remotely?

http://nwdigitalradio.com/preparing-the-raspberry-pi-for-dv3000-applications

Pull down the ALSA version of DummyRepeater if running on Pi.

Reason is that i already have it configured with my 3g dongle and (sakis3g) and so on .. :-) 

I get response from dv3000 :python AMBEtest2.py

seems alright but it say wrote 17 bytes ,, not 5 bytes as in the example .

So question is: what am i doing wrong ? Anyone have a prebuilt img ?

Kindly

Nice work ..  Feel free to share :-)  Would be nice to have.


ALSA Verison of Dummyrepeater.

"John Wiseman" <john.wiseman@...>
 

I've made a few improvements to my ALSA version of G4KLX’s Dummyrepeater for the Raspberry PI. It seems to have eliminated the occasional audio overruns.

 

See message #8269 in the ircDDBGateway group for the original post giving my reasons for going to ALSA

 

If you already have dummyrepeater running on your pi, you can just replace the dummyrepeater binary with this:

 

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/31910649/pidummyrepeater

 

If you need to build from source, you can use this source tree instead of DummyRepeater-20140519.zip

 

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/31910649/DummyRepeaterBPQJul22.zip

 

Diffs between the original any my source can be found here

Very cool!  Looking forward to your code.  (I think dPMR, NXDN, P25 Phase 2 HR, and Fusion HR all use the same half rate AMBE mode as DMR so the code you did for DMR should help with those standards as well.)

Re: DV3000 going International

"John D. Hays" <john@...>
 

The AMBE 3000 chip in the DV3000 is capable of encoding and decoding P25 Phase 2 Half Rate.

However, the AMBE stream would need to be extracted from the datastream of the P25 Phase 2 and sent to the DV3000.  A discriminator tap would permit a demodulator for P25 to be attached to extract the datastream, then software would need to extract the AMBE stream for decoding.

So the answer is yes, but there is a lot that needs to be created to make it a reality.  I am not aware of anyone doing this work yet.

Ah-ha!

Context is king.

Thanks - David KD4E

DummyRepeater is the name of one of the repeater programs in G4KLX's
suite for D-STAR. To the ircDDBGateway it looks like a physical
repeater, ala dstarrepeater (for Homebrew Repeaters), but instead of
being a radio, the 'repeater' is a microphone and speaker with a
piece of software emulating a D-STAR repeater. So in that sense it
is a 'dummy' -- but it's quite powerful. You might want to visit the
blog and see VK5ZEA's adaptation.

http://nwdigitalradio.com/dv3000-analog-to-d-star-bridge

This is another adaptation.

I suspect we'll see many more.

Usually the "dummy" qualifier for a device means it's non-

"Dummy" Repeater?

Translation problem?

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)
