Network ready signal

Folks, In my travels I at times find that I am on the repeater which is functioning locally but has no connection to the master. As far as I can see the only way to do a quick test is to dial up the parrot and give it a try. Seems it would be interesting if there was a way to have a softswitch which...

Re: Tone when DMR Master unavailable

I agree on this one. My quick check is to jump over to the parrot as I move from repeater to repeater. That concept would avoid having to do so, no tone you are good. Tone... No link.

I give them my room number and they always try to get me on the network. 99% of the time they do get it done but every once in a while there is ...

Re: Tether tablet to MMDVM NOT MMDVM to tablet

I think I have figured it out, I just need to make sure that tethering is turned on as the tablet is going to tether TO the Pi-Star device. I think that it was automatically connecting when it did not find and RF path, for whatever reason. Now I just need to turn on tethering when I plug the tablet ...

Re: Tether tablet to MMDVM NOT MMDVM to tablet

All good, but I am trying to figure out why at times the tablet with get an IP address over the USB link to the pi, that way I do not need to worry about anymore bits and pieces in this.

Re: Tether tablet to MMDVM NOT MMDVM to tablet

By way the IP address the tablet picks up is 192.168.50.x so it is being assigned

Re: Tether tablet to MMDVM NOT MMDVM to tablet

Has anyone given this thought? I have a tablet I would like to connect to the MMDVM board in this manner, but as I pointed out in the original post it does not always work. I am not sure why.
