Re: clipping in transmission

Resurrecting an old thread I know, but for anyone else searching for that invalid fich error, this might help. I had my OS2 set for C4FM Half Deviation (which I assumed was Narrow), and selected DN mode on the FT70 (assuming DN = Digital Narrow) but menu 62 on the radio was set to WIDE. Setting the ...

Re: Feature Requests- WEBSITE...(CHANGE LOG)

To be even more specific- why was Wires-X mentioned as I was told, Wires-X is a stand alone Yaesu product and incompatible with Open hot spots, YSF or FCS... What am I missing, besides brain cells? Hello, There's a reason a lot of people derisively refer to Yaesu's System Fusion as System conFusion...

Re: SharkRF IP Connector Protocol Server

On a fresh ubuntu 18.04 LTS system, I did the following set of commands, applying my system administration skills to know that I needed a build environment installed if I wanted to build things, then following the directions from https://github.com/sharkrf/srf-ip-conn-srv. sudo apt install build-ess...

Re: PiStar/Zumspot Devices with SharkRF IP Connector Protocol Server

I suggest you look into the DVSwitch project. It can basically connect nearly anything to nearly anything else. You could set up a single server that supports all the protocols (and perhaps even bridge with the openspot ip connector server as well), and conference them all together, and have any of ...

Re: SOP on HOW TO connect to a DMR Repeater

Yeah, as far as I've determined, you can only connect to the talkgroups that are bridged. It is one of my greatest disappointments, because the delmarva talkgroup is the most interesting one to me, and I have difficulty reaching any of the repeaters that carry it. WR3IRS doesn't bridge all the talkg...

Re: Getting the Shark to Work

the use of http://openspot/ on windows takes advantage of the netbios naming built into windows. That isn't always enabled on all windows machines though. The direct IP address is the most reliable way to connect. Also, many home routers (not all) run a DNS cache internally, and are the only DNS ser...

Re: SOP on HOW TO connect to a DMR Repeater

I'll start by saying I've pieced things together myself, and I may get some of this wrong. YMMV as they say. Not all talkgroups on all networks are hotspot accessible. I know, I'm sad about that too. Specifically, down here on the lower part of the shore, the 8802 Delmarva talkgroup is not accessibl...

Re: Not personally for me.

Improved DMR operations would have been awesome. I can't stress enough how nice it is to be able to use both timeslots. I have a pi-star with the dual hat (full duplex capable), with both timeslots. I can command the device even when there are long winded QSOs with no breaks between transmissions. ...

Re: Not personally for me.

I guess a lot of people really wanted "wifi". I VERY much preferred the ethernet connection as it allowed me to hook up ANY kind of bridged network I wanted including Wifi. And the wifi of my choice: high power 5Ghz or 2.4GHz or even a 3.3GHz device or ham band AP. Or more often then not just plain...

Re: openSPOT2 - Ethernet? and WiFi band(s)

Ok, I guess that means an ethernet cable cannot be connected to the openSPOT2. OK....I´m out. Sorry... I have an enterprise grade commercial cellular router in my vehicle, and everything currently connects via hardwired (shielded) ethernet cables. I could enable the wifi on the router, but I prefer...
