[App_rpt-users] First Node, having some issues

Many thanks to you, Bob!  Your info seems to have allowed me to find the problem, and I was right, it was something in the programming.  I had pin 8 set to active low for PL and CSQ Detect, where it needed to be high.  Change that setting, and I can do *80 and *81 commands.  Now to move on to the next thing – to get some “signal reports” out to another node.

 

Thanks again!

 

Jeremy, NQ0M

Jeremy, You'll have to make sure the radio is programmed to use specific pins that match how your custom cable is made.

 Next in simpleusb you need to select usb or usbinvert depending on how the active signal swings. 

 

On my page I have some screen shot examples.  Maybe it will help.

To me it sounds like the cos setting is opposite of what it should be.

Good evening everyone!

 

I’ve had my node number registered (44170) for a few months now, and I’m FINALLY getting around to trying to actually set it up, but am running into some issues.  Will start with a run-down of what I’m working with.

 

Radio:  Motorola CDM1250 UHF

Cabling:  Pre-made cables from Marshall, KE6PCV

Interface: DMK URI-X

Computer: Raspberry Pi 3

Installation: RAT RC1 (have also tried the older 1.0.1 DIAL install with same issues)

 

The setup is a simplex node on 446.500 with a tone of 91.5.  I have the radio itself detecting the tone via programming, as well as transmitting the same tone.  If I do a simple “kerchunk” from my HT (only about 5 feet away from the antenna, thru the wall of my house), the courtesy tone will return back to me.  If I transmit for more than a second or so, I do *NOT* get the courtesy tone.  The computer also does not seem to receive the DTMF tones when I try to transmit *81 – if I run asterisk -r from the command line and try to transmit tones, I see no indication that the system is hearing those tones.  I suspect I have something mis-programmed in the radio – this is the first time I’ve ever tried to program a Motorola radio, and CPS has a lot of options I’m not familiar with.  I’ve tried a bunch of google searches, without any luck, so I’m throwing this out to the world.  Is there a good run-down step-by-step to programming the CDM1250 I could refer to that I haven’t seen?  I’ve tried the batlabs site and a bunch of google searches to no avail.

 

The final goal in this is to use what I learn with this simplex node to rebuild our clubs off-air UHF repeater as an AllStar node.  Once that’s working, I’d like to convert our existing 2m repeater to yet another AllStar node, and permanently link them together.  But I don’t want to tackle the repeater until I have the simplex node working properly!

 

Any help you guys can give would be greatly appreciated!  I am familiar with Linux systems (Linux sys-admin by trade), but not real familiar with Asterisk or AllStar yet.
