Re: MobileGPS support...

Seems the best option might just be to install Direwolf in Pi-Star and have it read the GPS data from gpsd and send a position beacon to APRS

Re: APRS (native) iGate (RX only) possible?

You could install Direwolf and setup a VHF receiver and USB sound card (Something like the DRA-818V module from SV1AFN would do the job) or an RTL-SDR USB stick if you wanted a receive only igate (I'd recommend going a full igate with the DRA-818V, as that is more helpful to the APRS network)

Re: MMDVMHost update

It is. But I can understand people like Andy that do this as a hobby or for fun and there's no obligation at all and personally I appreciate their effort and dedication for the amateur radio community. But when we all have to sit around and wait for one person to update our software that unfortunat...

Re: MobileGPS

Would be so much better if this just used the existing hooks for gpsd... Seems like a lot of re-inventing the wheel, and limits functionality. For example: If Pi-star could read GPS from gpsd.... I could have one single GPS dongle, and provide GPS data via gpsd to both Direwolf (APRS) and Pi-Star an...

Re: Docker'ise PiStar instead of full install?

"docker" and "easy" should never appear in the same post.... Everytime I've had to deal with Docker its been a total nightmare to get to function correctly.... I'd almost rather compile from source than have to deal with Docker.

Re: TGIF Manager

So.... Is there a setting in the expert configs that will force the TGIF Manager to be enabled? I've got TGIF network setup and working as Network 4 but no TGIF Manager in the Admin screen

Re: MMDVMHOST FM mode implementation

Now the next question is.... How much of a stretch would it be to add Echolink support to the FM mode, so that that dual analog/digital repeater can also do Echolink on the FM side? (Yes, the more we get, the more we want LOL)

Re: Building your own MMDVM repeater

Being a glutton for punishment.... I'm in the process of trying something similar.... But instead of a pair of mobile radios, I'm going to try and use a DRA818U transceiver board for the receive side... The board has pretty good receive sensitivity, and has AF_OUT for flat audio.... Doesn't matter t...
