Thank you Doug. To the group, I’m the user Doug referred to, and just this morning joined this group. I’m new to Linux and Doug is my “expert” helping me. I’m learning, but not fast enough for the short term needs.


With Doug, I appreciate any assistance that can be provided, and am available to respond to any questions that might come up.


Thanks again,

Carl at n7kuw.com

Subject: [App_rpt-users] Setting up a permanent radio-IP-radio setup


I am helping another ham to set up a back-to-back remote base setup to help provide communication to a shaded area for a public service event.  We have a working remote base setup with hamvoip.org distribution and now want to hook two of these back to back.  I am helping with the Linux knowledge and got the current remote base working.  I am looking for some pointers about how to do this, and timing is short.  We need this running in 2 weeks.  Here's his request in his own words:

I’ve got an event the first weekend of June that I want the linked radio system for, so that is kind of what is driving my “rush”.
I would like to take the basic (final) software setup/configuration for ASC-North and archive it so we always have that foundation. (Doesn’t need to be by June 1).
I would like to learn how to modify that foundation to create a different remote base. Different Asterisk Name (1998, 1997, 1996, etc.), and whatever other changes are necessary so an independent base can be established. (Doesn’t need to be by June 1).
I would like to set up two Pi’s with the USB interface and radios, so they automatically, and exclusively, talk to each other. One I imagine (I’ll call the primary base) would have to broadcast it’s IP (dyndns), the other (I’ll call remote) would need to want to connect to that.  This is the need for the start of June. I have all of the needed hardware for both stations (Pi, USB interface, radio). This specific request is totally unrelated to ACS, but is in support of Special Olympics Washington Spring Games, which are being conducted June 2, 3, 4 (and will probably be on non-amateur radios/frequencies). They operate multiple venues which this year are more geographically separated than they have been in the past, and we’ll no longer be able to utilize simplex to talk between them. No reasonable repeater option is available and putting up a temporary one is all but impossible as it would have to be on JBLM someplace.
Once this is set up, but not necessarily immediately, I would like to know the specific programming for these that could be changed to add another unique pair, or to add another single (remote) radio as a link to the primary base.


Any pointers would be most appreciated.  I assume this will require defining some sort of default call, but I am new to asterisk.
