What MMDVM Board do you use?

Post by MW0MWZ »

Repeater Keepers, I need your help.

What repeater board do you use?

If the board you use is not posted here, please tell me what it is, and ideally what Config.h options are required to make firmware for it.

I have several DVRPTR v1 boards using v1.6 Firmware running as HPHS "Hi Power Hotspots).
The radios used to tx/rx are the Yaesu FT-7800/FT-7900/FT-8800/FT-8900. Easies radios to interface with the DVRPTR.
PS2 Male to Male interface cable. Some cables need to have small portion of plastic removed around the PS2 Male connector to allow the plastic to fit in the Data Din port correctly.
DV-RPTR V1 USB is selected for modem type.
The TX and RX Inverts on Pi-STAR are set to TXinver=off (0) and RXinvert=off (0)
The Radios are all set to MID power and NEVER HI.
All radios have an external 120mm 12v fan blowing on the radio to reduce the chance of overheating.
Some of these installs have been operational since 2012.

I also run five ID-4100's as HPHS in Access Point mode with the Pi-STAR software and find them to be the most easily set up solution to HPHS.
NEVER RUN ANY MOBILE RADIO AT HIGH POWER WHEN ACTING AS A HPHS AS YOU WILL BLOW THE FILNAL POWER TRANSISTOR EVENTUALLY.

Thanks david but the dvrptr boards are not mmdvm modem boards they are an earlier generation board specific to DSTAR and use with DSTARrepeater.

We appreciate the info given on your system but this thread is aimed specifically at what mmdvm boards are being used by repeater and gateway sysops and very much less in regards to the rf decks or other hardware used in the install.

But thankyou all the same for sharing your setup with us.

GB7PY and GB7PT both use a Repeater Builder V4 (blue) boards.
GB7PX uses the STM32-DVM-MTR2K v2.0c board

I have another Repeater Builder V4 which I will be using to build a spare repeater to support the CRG "fleet".
