DVAP Setup

Post by K2IE » Tue Aug 21, 2018 5:09 pm

I just setup my 2m DVAP with Pi-Star and note that the DVAP setup did not work without requiring several additional settings. I have not seen these documented elsewhere, so I share them here for your convenience.

In the Configuration GUI:

Controller Software: DStarRepeater
Radio/Modem Type: DVAP (USB)
Controller Mode: Simplex

However, this is not enough for the DVAP to communicate out over the gateway. Next, enter the Expert Editors screen. Select quick edit DStarRepeater and very carefully:

Change Mode from 0 to 1.
Change rpt1Validation from 1 to 0 (doesn't require RPT1 value in radio to use DVAP).

Apply Changes and then quick edit ircDDBGateway. Very carefully:

Change gatewayType from 0 to 1.

Perhaps the Pi-Star team would consider having these fields populated as above when selecting a Radio/Modem Type of DVAP.

If you updated as you would to then recommend, then you will already have the updater on your PC.
I don't understand your reply.
I don't know where to find the dvap FW v 1.07

How can you recommend something you have not tried ?
I am confused Luis, the only one that recommended updating dvap FW to v 1.07 was you on your post of Sun Sep 16, 2018.

Who are you asking "How can you recommend something you have not tried" ?

HB9ETR was quoting you from the post right above his post. He asked where to find the FW that you recommended.
