Faulty Board

Phill Gray
 

Hi Dave
I did the impossible and killed a node board it has issues with DTMF. Is it viable to send it back for repair it’s for node 6459 in Alice Springs we have a spare that’s in service now on UHF that Greg Winterflood purchased but would be good to also have a working node on VHF

Cheers

Re: news line ref 0016

 

HI all.... The issue has been taken care of.... Skips 0016 tried to download Friday's ( 11/27/2020) news.mp3 file from my server wget http://wb8odf.com/scripts/news.mp3 and for some reason (I can't explain) the 11/20 file remained within 3 attempts. I manually removed the OLD news.mp3 file from my server and manually reran my wgetarn script and it worked, all is well and good in the ARNewsline world.

Try Skip, WB6YMH.  Skip is the person who set it up years ago and kept it running.  He has told me in the past that he no longer monitors it (uses it) so he doesn’t know when it is working and when it isn’t.  My last communication with him did receive a response and the problem was fixed, but that was a few years ago.

I believe that you cannot use a standard parallel cable.
Any help is appreciated.

Hello Group.

I am working on trying to get a version 2 board running. Does anyone have the pinouts on the parallel cable made for this board? Seems mine is misplaced.

There are other scripts that work well to download the files from the production source ( http://wb8odf.com/scripts.cgi ). 

I have been using them for quite a while for both ARRL Audio News and Amateur Radio Newsline.  The install and scripts are straight forward, not many things requiring a tweak (like dropout duration to reset repeater/node timers as required).  (WB8ODF is also one of the frequent ARRL AN audio contributors, so if the URL changes, he'd know about it.)

Essentially, a pair of scripts download the MP3 file(s) and store them, rotating the last one into a backup (then gone the next rotation).  Another script plays the file(s), either one at a time; or in series (LONG transmission) with momentary dropouts to reset timers.  Then the user creates the commands to play on demand (custom_decode) plus a cron job to automate the downloading of audio files.

I found that I get the best results downloading new audio files on Friday at noon (Pac Time, 1500 in the east) because sometimes, they miss the posted 'deadline' for release.  Adjust to your local time zone as needed.

DO NOTE that the actual program to play the audio, has changed with the latest versions of Debian, so you may have to edit the script a bit more.  (um, aplay in place of play?  It's been some months since I poked at it, because it's working.)

I did change the file storage location to be consistent with other audio files my node either creates or downloads (like weather forecast, current weather conditions, alerts; local airport weather and more).

It's also clear that the reporting teams are restricted in the production end, due to COVID requirements, so the format may vary some.  As such, there may be droll humor, in others a straight monotonal announcer merely reading the script with no excitement or pitch change... (zzzz).  Until that's over, your mileage may blah blah, hi.

That is not a function of IRLP, just a service that he provides.  There have been several times in the past when this sort of thing happened.  Once, ARRL changed filename formats and we went for months without having newsline.  You need to drop the streamer a line and let him know there is a problem.  Be nice, this service is free.  ;)

There are other ways to do the ARRL news, but this is also the way I do it.

As for when it is updated, I believe (it’s been a long time) the new one comes out Friday morning.  Yes, I could be wrong.  Like I said, it has been a long time since I chased this problem.

If those are the only choices, go with EPP. If that doesn’t work, try the other one.

Re: Rebuilding node

That is no issue. If the same key is on both for too long, the key will get pulled because it will be showing from two IP addresses and constantly swapping back and forth between the two systems.

For testing over a few days, not a big deal.

Powering down the old node computer is not feasible, as it is at a remote location and would require a visit to power up.

Kind of a vague statement. Do you mean you want to be able to use IRLP nodes to talk to people? Or do you think you need to own your own node so others can use it?

This person (or "bot") has posted similar messages in different groups (EchoLink, for example) and I am regarding it as very suspicious.

It's too bad because we want to help a new person but we certainly don't need more trouble-makers.
