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

So I guess the protocol on DMR is different than on analog repeaters? Yes, it is also different between different DMR networks, and in this case you are accessing BM so you have to follow BM's rules. The problem is this isn't a local repeater, its an intertie network of 15,000 machines all connecte...

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

I announced my call sign. It wasn't just empty keying. I was looking to see if anyone responded. It doesn't matter if there was audio in it or not. 1 second is still 1 second and too many of them in the span of 60 seconds will automatically get you temp banned for an hour. If you want someone to re...

The Nanonode has built in antennas, so I don't think he's talking about that device, but the whole thing with people using the same word for different devices is confusing.

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

And yet... PARROT works but nothing else does. Please stop rapidly keying up multiple times for 1 or 2 seconds. That can get you put in a TIMEOUT where BM will ignore you for an hour. I mentioned this earlier. If you want to test use TG 98 or parrot. K0DXV Time Master My call Destination Options RS...

Re: FIRMWARE UPDATE FOR A NANO MMDVM

Does anyone know how to Update the Firmware on a Nano MMDVM that attaches to a repeater? It has no SD card to program to update it's all internal. I don't know what a 'Nano MMDVM" board is that "attaches to a repeater". The boards by BI7JTA that are labeled Nano are for hotspots and ...

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

But how many times do I have to repeat the same statement. I guess enough for it to register and finally sink in. I see on his dashboard that he's now got both 3108 and parrot transmissions, so it looks like you've finally got him sorted. I just wanted to take a second and acknowledge you taking th...

Re: MMDVD modem to use

Thats what works for me but as Jason stated I am not on a Pi4.....in fact the page I bought it from said to use that modem. Yeah, I saw those instructions. There are a number of settings that will technically operate, but the main difference between selecting what the instructions suggested and wha...

Since it is a clone of a common dual hat use "MMDVM_HS_Dual_Hat (DB9MAT, DF2FET, DO7EN) for Pi(GPIO).

I wouldn't use "STM32-DVM/MMDVM_HS-Raspberry pi Hat(GPIO)" although if you don't have a RPi 4 it will probably work, but with a RPi 4 it won't initialize.

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

Based on the (previous) version of the hotspot last-heard page, I'm fairly certain it was showing some date that was last year The label "firmware" is actually the pi-star software version, not any login date. So he bought a setup that was already imaged with an older version of Pi-Star (...
