Re: $LOCAL/active

Dave K9DC
 

I don’t know much about experimental operations, but doesn’t disconnecting from them involve calling the ‘end’ script, just like other calls? ‘end’ takes care of deleting local/active (i thought). Perhaps comparing ‘experimental_call’ to ‘call’ might yield something. But since EXP nodes really act more like reflectors, perhaps there needs to be something special added, since generally reflectors never drop callers, disconnects are requested only from the originating end of the call.

Maybe you could handle it by adding code to custom/custom_off

Hello to all,

It's been a while since I have posted here. One of my scripts doesn't work and I know the "WHY" but I'm at a loss as to "HOW" to fix it.

When my node connects to the exp reflector 0016 to listen to Amateur Radio Newsline it creates the "$LOCAL/active" file containing exp0016 as it should. When the news is finished it disconnects you, again... as it should but it doesn't remove the "$LOCAL/active" file so, my I script doesn't know 0016 has disconnected.

Any ideas? Is this a bug/feature of experimental reflectors?

A temporary fix is to time the news cast (as it rarely runs over 20 minutes) so I could set a timer to stop the script at 22 minutes or so, but I'd really rather get to the bottom of this issue.

Thanks All

Okay,  so it looks like a hack on the inside then...... bugger, don't feel comfortable enough to do that.

I was wondering that too.

Had hoped you might have already had a ready made cable solution.  :)

You will have to dig into the radio to get the signals needed  for IRLP.

Anyone got a guide/how-to for that ? ... even buying a ready made one?

Re: Yaesu FT-2980R

Agreed, it is a lot of radio to devote to irlp.

Currently have a DR135 radio, and thought since I saw this one come up, I thought I might grab it and upgrade.

At least this one will run a lot cooler with more power out than the old one. :)

Subject: [IRLP] Found an interesting problem with mixers changing settings

Starting in Debian 10, the alsa-utils package in Debian launches a daemon that is designed to capture mixer settings and save them periodically. While this sounds like a great idea, it can sometimes overwrite your mixer.

This is started with a systemctl service, BUT, using the normal "disable" features seems to not work. It is a bug, but it has never been fixed. To make it so this daemon does not start, you need to mask the service so it won't start:

(as root)

systemctl mask alsa-state
systemctl mask alsa-store
systemctl mask alsa-restore

This will prevent the mixer from saving on reboot, and allow the controls that IRLP uses to control the mixer properly.

Here is the video on the modification required to the power cable to use with the new Hyperdisk flash drives:

So far the 5 disks I have are spoken for. If there is more interest, I will order more drives.

I have new 16GB Industrial flash drives available for older style embedded nodes (based on the VIA ME/ML6000 or LN10000EG). I know a number of people were looking for them.

I have 4 available at this time. They will come configured like a NEW embedded node with all the same features. I will transfer over your old node number and callsign, etc. They will be tested on the identical motherboard here before being shipped.

There is one catch - due to the fact that the NEW connector uses reversed polarity compared to the OLD one, you will have to perform a simple swap of the wires in the connector. I will make a YouTube video to explain how this is done, and if you feel confident in the modification, you can save $10. Otherwise, please order the power cable from me.

16GB Flash Disk with Debian 10 and IRLP, reuse power connector - $130US (incl shipping)
16GB Flash Disk with Debian 10 and IRLP, NEW power connector - $140US (incl shipping)

If you are interested, please contact me directly at sales@irlp.net and I will set up the order forms and payment.

As user repeater in that directory:

cp index.shtml index.html

(cp<space>index.shtml<space>index.html<enter>)

And try the browser again.  This saves the original index file but puts a copy (cp) as index.html which is what the server is looking for.
