Re: Completely new to this. Can't get gateway and MD-380 to work

So, with 22 talk groups programmed in, I haven't heard single word on any of them. Are you assuming that since you have 22 talkgroups programmed in the radio that the system is always monitoring those 22 talkgroups 24/7? Ah, I'd not interpreted it that way... But yeah... Brandmeister/HotSpot isn't ...

Re: Completely new to this. Can't get gateway and MD-380 to work

I've been communicating on FM repeaters since 1970. So, with 22 talk groups programmed in, I haven't heard single word on any of them. Every channel is just dead space. I guess I'm too used to 20 meters which these days is basically busy 24 hours. I don't know where activity is on these talk groups...

Re: DVMEGA dual band firmware update

It would help to know what your difficulty lies in... wget with the proper URL on the R-Pi should allow a direct fetch of the file, which could then be unpacked (I'm sure there is something on R-Pi that can handle ZIP files. sftp from Mac to R-Pi should allow transferring the unpacked file(s). I've ...

Re: Completely new to this. Can't get gateway and MD-380 to work

It doesn't sound much like ham radio. I'm not sure what it is - but its something different and I don't think I care for it very much. Honestly - I *have to ask if anyone will talk to me*? Seriously? Ham Radio is about making QSOs. What are all this DMR channels for? You'd probably be disappointed ...

Re: Update Fails

If you click on one of those many URLs, does your main computer access the site?

I clicked on one and had faster response than I expected.

If your main computer can't access the site (github.com), you have some significant network problems.

Re: Completely new to this. Can't get gateway and MD-380 to work

I haven't disappeared and I am not short on appreciation for the help. and... while PARROT now works it doesn't seem that anything else does. I have carefully entered data into a new codeplug so I am not inheriting someone else's poorly defined data. I have 14 entries carefully matching Digital Con...

Re: Completely new to this. Can't get gateway and MD-380 to work

Also thanks for taking the time and sorting out this guys radio programming. But how many times do I have to repeat the same statement. https://forum.pistar.uk/viewtopic.php?p=19664#p19664 Image There is no contact defined -- the talk group number is associated with the contact name. So PTT on this...

Re: Completely new to this. Can't get gateway and MD-380 to work

Either the Hotspot doesn't work right or the radio doesn't work right. I've been over everything 20 times. Occasionally I see something show up on the dashboard. But, Parrot doesn't work no matter how many different ways I try to define it. I'm just out of ideas. I've watched every video there is o...
