No Local RF activity after upgrade and flash

Post by kp4aan » Wed Feb 20, 2019 8:41 pm

I can use the ADMIN page to change Reflectors but the Dashboard shows no activity when I transmit with the handheld. I can hear all the traffic but cant access the reflectors via the handheld.

DStar only. No other modes are enabled.
This may have happened after I flashed the MMDVM HS Hat.
Is there a way to go back on the firmware?

There is a Pi-Star script for downgrading the MMDVM_HS_Hat boards, but haven't tried it. Use at your risk!

To downgrade MMDVM_HS_Hat with 14.7456 MHz TCXO connected to GPIO:

Code: Select all

sudo pistar-mmdvmhshatdowngrade hs_hat
To downgrade MMDVM_HS_Hat with 12.288 MHz TCXO connected to GPIO:

Code: Select all

sudo pistar-mmdvmhshatdowngrade hs_hat-12mhz
To downgrade MMDVM_HS_DUAL_Hat with 14.7456 MHz TCXO connected to GPIO:

Code: Select all

sudo pistar-mmdvmhshatdowngrade hs_dual_hat
To downgrade MMDVM_HS_DUAL_Hat with 12.2880 MHz TCXO connected to GPIO:

Code: Select all

sudo pistar-mmdvmhshatdowngrade hs_dual_hat-12mhz
Good luck!

Got it fixed! It was a change of call sign that caused it, but not on the Pi-Star. It was the radio!!
