Re: Pi-Star does not show being connected to reflector

My MMDVM Jumbospot exhibits this problem. It either never connects or connects and later drops connection to REF001c. Changing reflector doesn't seem to work whether from dashboard or from radio, although from the radio I get the audio "connecting to...". Then it connects of its own volition, perhap...

Re: Retevis RT-82

Further to my last, I am having trouble with APRS. I can only, it appears, set the radio to beacon location periodically (and then only on one channel (Zone)) - but then APRS.fi shows my location as Koblenz in Germany under G8OGJ-DP or some such. I have not been to Koblenz with my RT-82. Indeed, I h...

Re: Retevis RT-82

I have one of these also. Its a very good radio but the programming interface is absolutely awful. Battery life is second to none. Any assistance welcome.

Re: 2m DVAP Transmit Lockup Bug

The updated firmware is no longer on the DutchStar site as far as I can see - any chance of sending me a copy?

Re: APRS and IC-92AD

Having upgraded to 4.0.0-RC4 there is an APRS passcode setting in the YSF expert panel and it was pre-populated with the passcode that I had obtained last week (so I presume that it is calculated in some way or the software looked it up automatically. I will check later to see whether the D/APRS is ...

Re: pi-star update

I have managed to update to 4.0.0-RC4 today without difficulty. I don't know whether there was any change but it has now worked.

Re: DVAP...

My post might have been premature - After 20 minutes (while I was doing something else) the thing sprang into life. However, it may be that the Pi Zero is not up to the job as the CPU load is very high (80%+) and it crashes when I try to enter configuration. Is it likely that the Pi Zero is just not...

DVAP...

I have a DVAP (USB) which has its own RPi zero controller but the OS crashed some while ago rather badly and damaged the installation. So I am now trying to get pi-star running with it to give me a unified interface over which I can deal with various access points (eventually in various locations). ...

Re: APRS and IC-92AD

I have flashed a new SD-card with 4.0.0-RC3 but there is still no entry for an APRS passcode - and yes, I have checked all of the 'Expert' settings too - as far as I can see. On both versions, there IS a 'password' entry under the D-Star panel (Admin pane) but I had thought that this was for the irc...
