Re: SD Surprise

 

Yes, unfortunately, the best path is to have the same make and model of SD card for replication or restoration.

SD Surprise

John McDonough
 

Of course I recognized that an 8GB SD card isn't really 8GB, but I sort
of expected that all the manufacturers would use the same sleazy math
to inflate their size.  Not so.

The reason this is important is that the safest, easiest way to back up
a Raspberry Pi is to make an image copy of the SD card from time to
time.  Something happens, just restore the image onto a fresh card and
you are good to go.

*BUT*, it turns out that Kingston 8GB SD cards are more than 20MB
larger than SanDisk cards.  So if you made the original image on a
Kingston card, you can't restore it to a SanDisk card.

So perhaps I need to pick one or the other and stock up on them.

Bummer.

Re: Loosing Last 1/2 second of transmission

 

Thank you Michael for your help.  Still trying to get this figured out. I have read that the TX Tail setting "pads the audio out until the transmitter drop at the end of a transmission".  Am I to interpret that to mean it puts 100 ms on the end of the transmission before the transmitter shuts down? It seems like 100ms may not be enough time but that is the max it can go to. I am still trying to understand the interaction of both the TX Delay and the TX Tail. ON my hotspot I do not lose any audio but on the DR-1X i lose the last couple letters of a call sign or the last words. 

Thanks for the help.

Rich, KR4PI

Hello NW Team.

I would like to use Timercontrol on the ircDDBGateway package with compass and UDRC.

Timeserver 1, Timeserverd 1, Timercontrol 1, Timercontrold 1, Remotecontrol 1 and Remotecontrold 1 all install without errors but when I run

Timercontrol 1 the following message is displayed:

pi@compass:~ $ sudo timercontrol 1

Fatal Error: Assertion failed on line 38 in file TimerControl/TimerControlRemoteControlHandler.cpp and function CTimerControlRemoteControlHandler: !address.IsEmpty() 

pi@compass:~ $ 

What can be wrong to cause this?
Remotecontrol 1 and Timeserver 1 are working correctly.

It appears as though the daemon is not getting the address of the gateway correctly from the configuration file.  I looked briefly through the code, and it appears as though it possibly didn’t get updated to use /etc/opendv as it’s configuration directory, so it might not be finding the configuration file at all.  I’ll have to look into it and see if I can get a patch generated.  In the mean time, you can try to use the -confdir flag to make sure the configuration directory is set correctly.

Thank you, 73, John ZL2TWS

Have you fixed your port forwarding?

Re: Gateway showing up but Repeater info is not

Thanks for schooling this noob up lol. I have an interface cable to make before I get it connected to the repeater.


Re: Gateway showing up but Repeater info is not

 

The dashboard reports when the repeater is used, until then nothing will show.

I keep getting a port 30002 err 101 message.

I get the same result if I try to make a DExtra connection to XRF038 without enabling port forwarding for UDP Port 30001.

Re: Raspian PIXEL desktop

 

I've now been able to do this on a test system and everything seems to be working from the UDRC side of things.

Chromium seems to have an error that I will have to chase down.


 


Re: Partial success with UDRC-II

XRF002 is a newer xreflector and does not require port forwarding for DExtra. XRF038 is an older version that does.

Re: Simplex hot spot = gateway?

 

Hi Dave,

You can accomplish what you are trying to do, you just have the nomenclature a little crossed up.

A simplex hotspot is usually a radio on a simplex frequency + UDRC + dstarrepeater/ircddbgateway + Internet connection. (If you have heard of a DVAP or DVMega, its the same idea but using a high powered radio to cover more area.) 

The same setup can be used with the radio set to access your D-STAR repeater (e.g. transmit on the repeater input, listen on the repeater output).  You would use 'Gateway Mode' on dstarrepeater. 

You can get more advice on setup from the pcrepeatercontroller forum on Yahoo!

"The Gateway mode allows the software to be used as a remote access to the D-Star network (with appropriate gateway software) to a standalone D-Star repeater. This mode uses either a simplex or duplex radio and appears as a normal user to the standalone repeater with network access. The callsigns being sent through the standalone repeater will appear a little different to using a fully connected D-Star repeater, but it will be very similar to use." -- https://beta.groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/pcrepeatercontroller/files/Documentation/  file 
D-Star Repeater-ENG.pdf  

Another option, that many are using, is to run microwave to the repeater from your Internet access location (e.g. a "local user's Internet service").  If you have a line of site (or nearly so) you can do this for a one time cost of equipment, less than $200 at each end.  See http://hamwan.org/Standards/Component%20Engineering/Client%20Hardware.html for a starting point.  There are great solutions in the 5.8 Ghz. and 900 Mhz. bands according to your needs.

Having trouble figuring out what is meant by the term 'simplex hotspot'.

Will a 'simplex hotspot' do this? I want to create what I would all a 'remote base' by using a non-DStar radio set to the DStar rptr TX/RX freq pair with a UDRC and use that for the internet gateway for the system. Is this possible?
