Re: MMDVM and Legal ID intervals

I mean repeater owners/operators in general, not just DMR repeaters exclusively. In case I wasn't clear and as indicated in the subject line, the question is concerning MMDVM-based controllers specifically. Or you can just buy an IDer. Nice if it were that easy but no, a simple off-the-shelf IDer w...

Re: MMDVM and Legal ID intervals

Most people that are running a repeater don't just hook up a hotspot to a giant tower/antenna and amplifier, they run specialized repeater controllers that handle all of the IDing and timers on their own. That is not a correct generalization as there are many DMR repeaters using an MMDVM-based boar...

Re: MMDVM and Legal ID intervals

Thanks for the comment and insight. Yes, I realize that the ID is implemented in the MMDVMHost software and 'firmware' was a typo on my part. I researched how ID is done in the MOTOTRBO/commercial world and the system does (or at least can be optioned to) enforce ID at specific intervals, even if a ...

MMDVM and Legal ID intervals

I've seen this topic come up from time to time and the answer seems to be that if CWID is set for (say) 10 minutes and there is DMR traffic being broadcast at the expiration of the 10-minute timer then the CW ID will not be broadcast. This is understandable of course since DMR and a CWID cannot be s...

Re: Easiest way to inhibit PTT from command line?

This works fine, and opposite to start again. Tx is disabled in the stopped condition. #!/bin/bash echo "Stopping Pi-Star Services..." systemctl stop pistar-watchdog.timer systemctl stop pistar-watchdog.service systemctl stop mmdvmhost.timer systemctl stop mmdvmhost.service sleep 3 echo "Finished......

Re: Easiest way to inhibit PTT from command line?

Ah, I for some reason assumed that pistar-mmdvmcal was entirely an executable, didn't realize that it was started from a script. Looking at the contents of pistar-mmdvmcal I should be able to simply create manual stop and start scripts of my own by controlling the four associated services. Thanks fo...

Re: Easiest way to inhibit PTT from command line?

Thanks. Geez, didn't expect it to be such a struggle. When you run the pistar-mmdvmcal utility it reports 'Stopping Pi-Star Services...' (and when you quit, 'Starting Pi-Star Services...') and this effectively prevents any activation of the transmitter. I've looked into the code but it isn't clear t...

Easiest way to inhibit PTT from command line?

I have an STM32/Pi3 and am running a shell script to monitor temperature of the transmitter PA heat sink and want to inhibit PTT if temp goes out of limit. What would be the most direct system command to accomplish this from the command line? Right now I am simply shutting down the Pi but would rath...

Re: Talk Group blacklisting not working

As above, the setting is mentioned on a few websites and also as above it is indeed not in the code and I have no idea how the information got propagated. I am only mentioning it here so that others will not be steered incorrectly by the incorrect information. I'm not sure why the mention would be a...

Re: Talk Group blacklisting not working

OK, figured it out. Even though I found several references on the web detailing the 'DstIdBlackListSlot<x>' option in the mmdvm config, as far as I can tell the option does not really exist, or at least it doesn't seem to be present in any of the MMDVM code. The only related option is to whitelist T...
