Re: 9206 activity?

Dave Gingrich <gingrich2@...>
 

9206 is still working fine.

The net stopped operations yesterday afternoon at 1600 EDT (not too many
nodes in Cuba).

Expect the net to start up again when the storm approaches the Gulf Coast.
Watch http://www.voipwx.net/ for more info.

www.voipwx.net for details but the net was stood down yesterday after IVAN
passed the Caymans. It will not restart until there is another direct
threat.

Too bad CO8 land is not taken into consideration as the Western end is right
in the path.

Re: can't get Linux to install

Dave Gingrich <gingrich2@...>
 

Butch-

If I had to guess, I would bet that one of the questions or selections is
incorrect, in the steps setting up the hard drive partitions. It might be
as simple as making sure all the existing partitions are deleted first.

I would be willing to walk through the process with you and your wife on
the phone some evening this week, except tonight. I have an extra drive so
we could step through it together. That would get you started at least.

I think the drive is o.k. as I've formatted it on dos and it checks out

choices are mode 0 and mode 1, but at this point not sure.

I seem to recall something back when I use to build systems about lba

Any suggestions welcome. I'm just guessing and really don't know what
else to try. I'm more than a little frustrated, and Libbie is really
frustrated. Hopefully, once I get things to the point I can access the

Re: Configuring GE Master II repeater CTCSS output tone

David Cameron - IRLP
 

I know this may sound dumb, but has anyone looked on a scope what a
TS-32 looks like on the output when you toggle the power to the board
on and off?

I use a selectone encoder (with the infinately variable frequency
pot) and I find that just powering the whole unit on and off works
fine for me. I switch the power on with the +5 volts from the tone
decoder board.

Re: Configuring GE Master II repeater CTCSS output tone

Klaus Rung
 

Depends on which model CommSpec decoder you are using.

Is it a TS-32 or TS-64?

If the tone is present on the repeater tail then I bet
it is not working correctly for cutting out the ident
either. You were not very specific on how you wired
the cos gating to the decoder.

Also, are you using two decoders? One for ctcss and
another for tx encode? If you already have a ctcss
decoder working correctly and it was tied to the
transmitter just put a relay into the tone line that
is gated from the rx cos and away you go. Another
issue is your receiver audio must be filtered through
your ctcss decoder to strip off the tone otherwise it
will go from the receiver into the transmitter input
and add to the second decoder that is wired to the
transmitter. In other words you need a high pass
filter in the rx audio line going to your transmitter.

If it is a TS-32 make sure the decoder is transmitting
a tone continuously whether it is keyed or not. You
may have to tie a line low to do this. Next put a
normally open relay contact into the tone line wire
going to the transmitter. This will key the tone very
quickly and shut it off very quickly and should work
very well. I have a number of repeaters using that
method for a few years now very reliably. A very
simple to impliment fix.

Make sure you run pulsecheck after you have everything
wired and adjust the timing accordingly. You will find
the second number will end up to be 150 if you have
things wired correctly.

Setting up tone gating this way is not repeater brand
specific and is the same on any repeater system.

Re: Configuring GE Master II repeater CTCSS output tone

Henry Hamblin <wb4ivb@...>
 

Greg,

The concept is to let the Mastr II RUS (Receiver Unsquelched Switch) on the Mastr II IFAS Board Pin 8 control the Comm-Spec board so that the Comm-Spec Encode function is only present when an RUS signal is present. Don't confuse RUS with CAS.

Assuming you have the Comm-Spec board decode side wired correctly, the Mastr II RUS (positive voltage) will only be present when a on-frequency signal with the correct tone is present. Depending on which model Comm-Spec board you have............the TS-64 for example, has an Orange wire that must be grounded in order for the "Encode" to function. You could use the RUS signal via an NPN transistor/10K resistor circuit to ground the Orange wire. Connect RUS to the base of a 2N2222 via a 10K resistor (for current limiting). Ground the Emitter. Connect the orange wire to the Collector. When RUS is present forward bias is applied to the base, grounding the Orange wire via the Emitter-Collector. Before doing this, to make sure the Comm-Spec Decode section is wired correctly as mentioned above, measure the voltage at RUS on the IFAS board. You should only see a Positive voltage when an on-frequency signal with the correct CTCSS is present. If you see a positive voltage without a CTCSS, then the Decode side is not wired correctly. The White wire on the TS-64 is "Rx Mute", and the mute circuit must be functioning correctly for RUS to work as described.

Re: Configuring GE Master II repeater CTCSS output tone

Mike WA6ILQ <wa6ilq@...>
 

Look at www.repeater-builder.com on the GE pages.

One trick on switching a PL encoder is to run the PL
encoder continuously and use two series resistors
between the PL encoder output and the modulator
input, and ground the center point with a COR driven
open collector. This gets the controller out of the
picture completely - the RX cor drives the encoder
audio switch. Once it is working properly you can
then add the repeater controller into the picture.
