Re: Problem with duplicate packets


Edouard Lafargue
 

  Hi Doug,

  I assume you are using a standard 6-pin min-DIN, right ? The issue is that both the 1200b and your 9600b pins are connected to the UDRC, on channel 0 and channel 1 on Direwolf. So Direwolf sees each packet twice: one with a high audio level (9600baud), and one with lower audio.

   You can either configure Direwolf to only enable one channel, or you can go to Alsamixer and mute one of the channels (type "M" on either "ADCFGA L" or "ADCFGA R" on the playback screen (those should really be on the "recording" screen, but that's another story).

Hoping this helps!

Ed

First let me say that the UDRC-II is a great device and paired with the Pi3 makes a really useful wireless TNC and digipeater.  Now form my (albeit minor) problem...

I am having a problem with duplicate packets showing up in the direwolf console.  In this example below (of a two packet exchange) note that the audio level is lower on the second printout of the packet.  Before starting direwolf, I set up the audio levels with the script udrc-setup.sh (script and output below).  My guess at this point is that the mixer is somehow misconfigured and that some of the audio from the Din-6 connector (channel 1) is being sent to channel 0 and so the packet is being decoded twice.  

What does the number in square brackets mean ([1.2] vs [0.4])?
How do I interpret the graphic with | and _?.

Diagnostic output from direwolf during which 2 packets were received by the radio (Icom 207H).
