NEED HELP With Tytera MD380, BlueDV For Windows & Zumspot USB Stick

Post by KB0OXD » Sat Jul 13, 2019 8:23 am

While NOT directly related to PI-STAR, this is related to the Zumspot USB Stick, hence the post...

I am at a loss

Been trying FOR DAYS now to get my Zumspot USB Stick, Tytera MD-380 & BlueDV For Windows to work so I can make use of my Zumspot

According to Developer David, PA7LIM, Blue DV For Windows (And these are HIS words) "works great" but I have yet to be convinced of that

Now from what I understand, you're supposed to use Color Code 1 Time Slot (Also called REPEATER Slot) 2. but I dunno if that's across the board, for one type of TG or what the deal is (I'm NOT knowledgeable on this stuff to know)

Add to the fact that (As you'll see in one of the screenshot), I see a list of stations in the LAST LEARD list but NEVER hear come over the radio. I dunno if they're just using Private Call while I'm on Group Call or just what the deal is

Anyhow, I NEED HELP in getting on the right course (If I'm not already there) or STAYING ON course if I am there

with that, here are (In no particular order) the screenshots (This may result in multiple posts are there are many of them)

You do realize theres some "issues" with 310-319 going on right now, right? If you've been testing and asking for radio checks its possible that you have been blocked.

I suggest you use the parrot, 9990 private call, and see if you can get that working, then once you know that works, its just a matter of switching to a different talkgroup. Stay off of 310-319 unless you call a specific person for a short QSO, the admins are listening.

Also, you said in your post to use CC1, TS2, but in your codeplug, you've got CC1, TS1 set, so that explains why you don't hear anything, cause you are listening to the wrong time slot. I think the MD380's have a promiscuous mode that will monitor both timeslots, but I'm not that familiar with that radio.

The thing is my call only shows up on Hoseline on YAC 313 so I don't think I've been "Blocked"

Besides, how does the Brandmeister network know that I'm calling for a radio check or not UNLESS SOMEONE WAS LISTENING (And even then, WHY would be blocked??)

But thanks for the report on the issues though :)

Cheers & 73 :)

Also, I noticed the error in the TS in the codeplug as shown in the screenshot & have since corrected it :)

I see another typo

DMR id hotspot and DMR id simple are different in the BlueDV settings.
