No receive audio (other than Parrot echo)

Post by jeffslusher »

Just installed new openspot and updated firmware (138). Radio is new TYT MD390 with code plug from NARA N4HSV website. Parrot works fine but no receive audio on any of the other repeaters, although I can see what appears to be incoming traffic (red LED on MODEM). I'm showing up on brandmeister.network.

Any suggestions?

Please first test with openSPOT's built-in echo. Do you hear yourself back correctly?

I set destination ID as 9999 and made a call but no echo.

Does the modem LED blink when you press PTT on the radio?
Which connector do you use? Is it connected to the server? (Status field on the Status page should say "standby")

Make sure you ran DMR AutoCal, or manually change DMR demod modes on the modem page to see which mode gives you the best results.

OK -- built-in echo is working.

Yes -- MODEM LED flashes when I press PTT and I re-ran DMR AutoCal and it is set properly.

Connector is Homebrew/MMDVM with Destination ID 4000. When I click "Group Call" I get audio that says (I think) "You're linked" but it's hard to understand.

TNX for your patience!

Calling TG4000 on BrandMeister will drop your dynamic talkgroups and reflector link so the server should say disconnected or something like that, not that you're linked.

Still no receive audio on my TYT MD390 -- but I am seeing activity (red flashing MODEM light) and ID of stations while monitoring 'Status' page of openSPOT. Here's what I'm seeing on Status page when MODEM is flashing:

To: 9 (Local or Reflector) (rerouted from 3100)
From: KF2ND Louis J Lombardo (3134773, Belle Mead, New Jersey, United States)
Group DMR voice call from net
At: 23:48:49 (length: 00:02)

Any suggestions on what to do?

Please also check your color setting. Sometimes it has change when you have upgrade your firmware.

Try connect to another server. What talkgroup are you on now?
