[App_rpt-users] Allstar Node and RC210 Issues

Monty,

Thank you. The conf file you sent me was a big help. I wished mine conf files was commented like the one you had. That explains a lot. I made the changes you said to make in the rpt.conf. It helped increase my audio and it sounds much better for some reason now. I am still having issues with the link UHF repeater though. 
Here is my setup:
RC210 Port 1 UHF Repeater, Port 2 URI (allstar) 

URI to RC210 Port2
Pin 1 (PTT) to Pin 7 (RX COS)
Pin 8 (COR DET) to Pin 3 (TX PTT)
Pin 13 (GND) to Pin 9 (GND)
Pin 21 (MIC IN AC) to Pin 4 (TX AUDIO)
Pin 22 (LEFT OUT AC) to Pin 5 (AUDIO INPUT)

RC210 Port 1 and Port 2 Linked 
Port 2 setup- Hang Timer=0; Transmitter Enabled; Receiver Enabled; Repeater Mode; DTMF Enabled; Monitor Mix; Access Mode= Carrier

I can Link my Allstar node to an active Allstar Mode and I have great audio repeater on the UHF Repeater. But when I key up to transmit on my UHF repeater I am getting PTT Lights on Port 2 on the controller but I am not getting a keyup or audio on the Allstar node either locally (via iaXrpt) or through Webtransciever. Also I can’t connect or send any commands via the UHF port to Allstar. 

Any ideas? I was told that I shouldn’t program port 2 on the RC210 as Repeater mode? 

Thanks for all your time and help.

Hi Charles,
I have interfaced Allstar to my RC-210.  I had a couple of problems.  One was my wiring, everything is backwards.  PTT on the arcom goes to COR on URI, Audio out to audio in, etc.  So i would check that..  Also if you haven't done any config on your allstar node, that might be it too.  I attached my usbradio.conf file, the one I used for interfacing the Arcom.  I put Allstar in COR only mode, might want to do the same for your Arcom port.  Also I had to add these two statements to my rpt.conf:

duplex=0               
linktolink=yes

I just added them under the etxgain=3

Let me know if you have any other problems or questions.

Monty

  I am having issues with my new Allstar node. I think it’s a configuration issue with my asterisk. I am using the ACID distro. Is there a place that explains the conf files and settings? I have yet to run across one on my searches.

  Thank you,
