Re: Draws Analog to digital transcoding #draws

 

Dummy repeater (G4KLX) may be a good starting point.  I don't know of anything 'out of the box'.

You configure BlueDV exactly the same as if you were sitting in front of the computer running BlueDV except to utilize the RS-232 control signals for transmit and receive.  I think there are several how-to information sources for implementing the BlueDV program available on the Internet.  As stated in the write-up, the serial ports are different for the AMBE chip and the RS-232 control.

Rick,
There is a lot I don't know about how you want to interface the Draws board to your Analog repeater but most of what you want to do can be done with software from DVSwitch. Analog_Bridge and MMDVM_Bridge would both be required. Rather then bore people with the nuts and bolts, join us at <https://dvswitch.groups.io/g/main>

Steve N4IRS

PS John, maybe you, Bryan, Mike and I can discuss Draws to Analog_Bridge at Dayton.

Re: Draws Analog to digital transcoding #draws

 

Steve -- yes, lets hookup at Xenia (Dayton).

Since I haven't played with DVSwitch (but I have great confidence in Steve's project), once you get it running and have an audio stream, it should be possible to hook your analog repeater to the DRAWS™ audio interface and use the GPIO to PTT capability.

Thanks John, I'll take a look at Dummy repeater (G4KLX) I suppose if I have to use a PC I can add anther solar panel to compensate for the additional load?  I'm looking forward to using the DV3000Usb

Thanks Steve

I'm already running DV-Switch on a VPS at Digital Ocean and already a member of your .io group  When I first saw the Draws board It looked like it could be capable of interfacing analog to digital but at that time all I had was a 6 channel vocoder and I didn't want to dedicate it to just one project, Since then I purchase the DV3000usb for that project. I appreciate all of the replies and ideas.

Can't change Blue DV Settings on Win 10 #bluedv #thumbdv #support

Alan Singer
 

I use a Thumb DV with Blue DV on Win 10. I Haven't been able to change settings for months. Every time I try I get an "Unhandled Error" message. I've tried re-installing. No luck. Uninstalling does not remove all traces of the program. The new fresh install contains settings from the previous installation. Same with Win DV/ Dutch star program, it keeps old settings when re-installed & has become extremely slow to respond with it's gateway window. Anyone experience similar issues? Could there be conflicts between the two programs? Is there a method for doing an uninstall which completely removes every trace of the program? Thanks!

I use CCleaner to remove residual stuff.

You might consider navigating to

c:\users\(you)\AppData\local\ and find BlueDV directory and erase it. 

There is another directory under documents named BlueDV.

And check the ProgramFile(x86) to make sure the BlueDV directory has been removed after you have used the program add/removal utility in windows 10.


I had the same issue with DutchStar a while back but I don't remember where any "hidden" files are for that program.

Re: Can't change Blue DV Settings on Win 10 #bluedv #thumbdv #support

 

For WinDV, I found that deleting entries in the Windows Registry was sometimes necessary to clean up local settings.
You might pop a note to info@... (he does participate in the ambe subgroup here, but I don't know if he monitors main).

Thanks for the responses!  I did get a very quick response from David PA7LIM which was to "Please select an YSF reflector in the setup." It worked perfectly. I can now again change settings. Cheers!

Re: New Case for RPi, DRAWS and 7 inch LCD - Looking for testers

Terence Taylor <n6mon@...>
 

Steve and Kevin, I have downloaded your files and will print this weekend. I do not have my DRAWS board yet, but it should arriving soon. I THINK I have the correct display, so I should be able to test the fit of the Pi and the display.

Re: New Case for RPi, DRAWS and 7 inch LCD - Looking for testers

John Cahill
 

Do you plan on sharing the cad files themselves so that testers can add improvements more easily and share?

Looking to get into the next DRAWS cycle in April myself, my intention is to use portable and mobile and this case option would be 'the bees knees"

The SD Card goes in the Raspberry Pi -- the software runs on the Pi to drive the DRAWS™ HAT.
