Re: Where is the echo test recorded?

Depends on the mode used. As above Mostly server, except Dstar. if you use the -------E (seven spaces and an E it records locally using ircddbgateway. If you connect to echo reflectors like the Z module of an XLX reflector it gets recorded via the reflector. That’s useful to know Andrew. Have you a...

Re: Where is the echo test recorded?

You are trying to compare apples to oranges. The entire pathway from your hotspot to a reflector might be completely different than the pathway from your hotspot to the echo test. <SNIP> No, it is not recorded on the hotspot. It comes directly from a server. It just replays whatever it received. Th...

Where is the echo test recorded?

When I’ve had reports of poor/broken signals from my own transmission on a reflector, an echo test works OK.

Is the echo test recorded in Pi-Star, or does it test further back in the system?

Thanks

Just select "text entry". Then you can type in whatever XLX### you would like.
Thanks for the reminder. It was just that there are XLX reflectors listed on the admin page, but absent from the drop down list on the config page.

XLX in D-Star config?

I’m running 4.1.0-RC8 with a DVAP dongle.

I can select XLX reflectors from the admin page, but not from the config page where you select a reflector at startup.

I don’t know what difference, if any, there is between DCS and XLX reflectors. So the above differences may be irrelevant.

Re: No d star after I changed from a iPhone 6 to an 8

You could use an IP scanner to find what is connected to your phone, use a Windows PC or laptop running a free utility, such as:

Works a treat.

Re: Need your help.... Talkgroups, how to change ?

Lee, it sounds like your 380 is set to “promiscuous”. It should only receive the talkgroup selected on the radio, regardless of what is configured on the Pi-Star. Assuming you have no static groups configured, send 4000 (usually one of buttons on the radio is programmed to bring it up on screen), th...

Re: Micro SD card

It has been reported there are a lot of dodgy USB memory sticks around, the same issues may apply to claimed “genuine” SD cards. I have had no problems with SanDisk Ultra Class 10 cards from Amazon (Amazon stock, not from their 3rd party sellers). I use the Win32 Disk Image program, originally recom...

Re: VHF DVAP

Bill I also have a 2m DVAP and it is hooked up to a Pi running 4.1 rc 3. How long does it take to lock up and what reflector do you leave it on?

Does it lock during the day too?

I can try mine overnight and see what happens.
