[App_rpt-users] Technically possible?

Thanks, but I'm not exactly sure that your statement is 100% accurate...

Both Limey (Steve WA6ZFT) , myself and many others involved in the project
and related things can all attest to the fact that many, many
dinners have been generated as a result of Allstar/Limey Linux   :-)

Technically possible?

The sky seems to be the limit with
Allstar.  As of about a day ago I’ve tied MotoTRBO into a Limey Linux
node and cross connected it to my two analog repeaters.  I don’t think
theres anything it can’t do except make you dinner.

Technically possible?


have searched high and low and yet haven't found much good information for what
I'm about to ask.  I hope this mail list might help with that.

about to dive into AllStar and all its associated parts.  BUT, I'd like to know
if what I'm thinking makes sense, and that there
isn't a more preferred way of doing it?

have a wide area coverage (for Atlanta
anyway) 440 ham repeater, it's currently a Master II converted.  I'm about
to replace it with an NXDN Icom 440 repeater (digital, but it will continue to
run in mixed mode as well).  I'd like to be able to connect it to AllStar,
or other VOIP services (yes, like IRLP, maybe Echo, and who knows maybe someday D-Star).

don't get all excited, I'm not about to think that I can do that *digitally*.  All audio will be analog either
decoded or about to be encoded. 

I'd like to *remote* all the services to my house and host them from there,
instead of at the repeater site.  It does have internet, but it's remote,
not readily accessible,

is the following feasible, desired, are the better ways to do what I'm

take the analog audio input/output at the repeater and put it into either a URI
with a fanless PC install of AllStar, or a PicoNode with Pickle and LOX.

put the other services (ala, IRLP, Echo, etc) at my house with a dedicated PC
setup with URI's and another install of AllStar (ok, Asterisk and it's
associated radio parts)

connect all that together with IP and the appropriate setups to allow links to
be created, torn down.

I didn't say anything about any form of *external controller*, other than the
Unix boxes and their AllStar installs.  I’m hoping I won't need one
and will just use the NXDN repeater and its internal controller for what is needed at the

I did the above, what issues will occur when you link the repeater to oh say
IRLP via an IP connection between two AllStar nodes?  Will there be any
issues with DTMF, tail crashes, courtesy tones, etc.  Either not being
there or being there when they shouldn't be?

is it possible to add a simplex radio to the home node such that it will
connect me to the repeater, or other services (again over and IP link)?

I get confused just trying to explain this…. I've looked all over to try
and find some similar examples of this, I'm sure they exist, but it appears
that either I'm not entering the right Google search phrases or they aren't too
well documented.

help, advice, steering, etc welcome…
