Connecting to a C-Bridge that is not in the pull down list

Post by WA6PYJ » Fri Jun 08, 2018 11:08 pm

Does anyone know how to configure the pi-star to connect to a c-bridge that is not in the pull down list? I have tried several different setup configurations in the expert mode for the DMR Network 1, DMR Network 2 and DMR Network 3 with no success. The C-Bridge sees the public IP that the pi-star is connected to but there is no connection to the pi-star.

Are you trying to connect to an actual C-Bridge? If so, you won't have any luck. The IPSC protocol that Motorola (and the Rayfield C-Bridge) speaks is not compatible with the MMDVM Homebrew protocol. If said C-Bridge is connected to a Brandmeister master server (and you were also connected to Brandmeister), you may be able to access certain talk groups on the C-Bridge side if they were shared with Brandmeister. Brandmeister master servers do support IPSC unlike your hotspot.

Thanks. Yes, it is a true Rayfield C-Bridge that currently has 10 DMR repeaters on it. I don't do BrandMeister.
