V4 RC7 P25 reflectors disconnect after a couple of minutes

I just re-flashed a working repeater with RC7. It will connect to P25 reflectors just fine, but silently, after a minute or two will disconnect, where in PiStar 3 it would stay connected for weeks at a time. What changed, and how can I change RC7 to enable 'static' connections on P25? Thanks!

Re: P25 pre-courtesy tone

Is the tone coming from your radio when you key up? Do other stations hear the tone over the air when you transmit?
Can you post a video (preferred) or audio clip of the tone you're hearing?

Re: In DMR id Lookup what does the number 24 signify?

I believe that is the number of hours between pulls of the DMR callsign database

BM 'Reflector Voice' volume

I'm running an MMDVM repeater using a ZumRadio board. The verbal "Connected to xxxx" and "Not connected" messages are incredibly loud compared to the audio from user radios. Is there any way to turn this down??

Thanks!

ZumRadio-MMDVM firmware update?

Hi all,

I tried to update the firmware using "sudo pistar-mmdvmhshatflash rpi_duplex"

After completing, and power cycling, the modem still reports the original firmware version (MMDVM:20170501)

I must be missing something - any thoughts?

Cheers,
N6MIK

I could see that, since they do quite a bit with the data flowing through their system - but the same happens off BM (local repeater tx/rx) and also on P25...

So... Encryption?

Settings aside the many opinions on the use of encryption in ham radio - I set out to experiment with the capabilities of my hotspot and repeater last night using P25 and DMR. I found that when encryption is enabled, it does not pass through intact. For P25 - my setup is a UHF MMDVM repeater, and a ...

Re: RF to repeater has delayed Tx

I'm running an MMDVM_PI (from the ZumSpot folks) on a Pi3 B+. I don't use Dstar, but have the same thing happening on P25... annoying, but also serves as a real-time signal report! DMR does not have this problem.

Re: STM32-DVM V3  Kenwood tm710g help

Set your radio for wideband (vs. narrow, if you have that choice), and 9600bps data. Also play with the TX Invert setting in Pi-Star's MMDVMHost settings...

I had the same problem with my STM32 using Yaesu Radios...

Keep in mind that the tx/rx offsets in the pi-star settings don't do anything when you're connected to an external radio.... make sure that your tx deviation and frequency of the radio are good, and work the TX_G pot until you dial it in.
