Voice ID script

ne1h@...
 

All,

I've hacked up a previous script that someone did to include the
ability to remotely ID a repeater.... While it technically might not
be legal, it might allow someone to get up and testing. I'll explain.

I am running a user radio on a repeater, with a controller. I didn't
want to send any ID's over the link and I can't do the PL thing at
the moment. So, I shut off the tail, shut off the ID, and run this
script on my IRLP node.

It will ID when there is activity on the repeater only, or on the
NODE only. Or any combination. It will support "hold off", where it
will allow the conversation to finish on the repeater or the NODE
before it ID's. It will also force an ID if it needs to.

Couple of tips that Dave gave me allow me to leave the VOIP
connection running, but drop the connection to the SoundCard so I
don't have arbitration issues with a SB16. Then re-establish to the
SC and everything keeps on trucking.

I'm not a serious Shell Script programmer, but I think I've got it
working pretty well. Currently it supports the stnxxx wave file to
play for the ID, althought it could support any file in the $AUDIO
directory or in a directory below it by simply changing a variable in
the shell script.

It does have one artifact that I'll kill later... If ID's once more
than it needs too on the last transmition before the end of activty
timer... But it still does this based upon the ID timer, so no real
foul.

I don't know if this would help anyone, but if so drop me an email
and I'll attach and send back, the heading of the file has excellent
instruction on how to place, assign premissions and run.

Using a Morse ID? How about the low tech approach: an audio notch filter?

Hope this helps.

Re: Voice ID script

GARY E BELCHER KH6GMP <kh6gmp@...>
 

Hi Alan, I think Im using the same script, also modified a bit, that you are
using to ID my transmitter. Its working fine right now, and Im using CW id.
I have a .wav file of 18wpm cw giving my ID and the script I think you are
using is from Chuck. I had to take out the line that did the sccw -t thing
and installed a line that says play /irlp/home/audio/cwid.wav
so it IDs in CW at the same time as audio is coming in from IRLP. I might
be able to improve the end of activity thing but have not touched it yet,
just changed the 60 seconds ID time to 300 seconds so it goes off every 5
minutes. Its working fine for me, Im just wondering what changes you made
to the original script. ALOHA and 73 de Gary KH6GMP Kailua-Kona Hawaii

Uploaded my Voice ID script file

All,

For those that are using it, please provide feedback. Remember, it
ID's as user radio on the repeater frequency.

Use it wisely and let me know if how you modify it.

Thanks,

Re: Uploaded my Voice ID script file

ne1h@...
 

All, I've noticed a problem if you use the script as I uploaded it
and sent it around.

a) if you are in an irlp session, the ID won't go out of the repeater
until a break in the IRLP traffic. As I've come to discover, when on
a reflector, there aren't many of those breaks. (you can keep a
repeater pretty well tied up listening to a reflector, let alone
trying to get a work in edgewise :) ).
b) if you go in and comment out the while....do statement in the ID
section of the script directly above the the lines that unhook the
IRLP audio from the SC and then play the ID and then re-hook the IRLP
back to the SC, you can fix this problem
c) This fix does present another problem, but probably one that is
livable. It will loose the audio from the IRLP connection while the
ID fires. I guess I'd rather have an ID and have to get someone to
repeater their last few comments than not have an ID.

I've noticed as well, that there is an extra ID at the end of
activity. I'll spend a few minutes looking at this and see if I can
fix that.

For those that have downloaded and are using, please provide some
feedback. I'm about to bring up my "link" side equipment and once
that happens, I won't need this script anymore... The repeater can ID
all it wants and that won't go out the IRLP side.

CW IDent...

f.marks@...
 

Hey Guys/Gals download and setup the cw IDent script which works
well manually but will not play automatically when I run rc.irlp

I have doubled checked the setup of the file and everything seems
to be right.

the file permissions on the file where as follows:
-rwxr-x--- 1 root repeater

I thought it might have been because the permissions where wrong and
give everybody execute permissions and it now looks like this:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root repeater.

Maybe the root should own the file instead of repeater?

Any help would be appreciated!

Some restructuring

ne1h@...
 

All,

I've cleaned up the "files" section of the yahoo group. I've moved
my ID script file to the scripts section and I've created a Audio
file section.

I've placed a 10 sec long "Silence" file in that area. Use this file
with the wavplay command to listen to how clean you audio is through
the radio.

I'm working on some baseline files and procedures to be used with a
Communications test set to help setup the audio levels. I'll also
attempt to document the process using some linux tools.

If I'm successful, there might be a way to "baseline" each node to a
common audio level characteristic. This will help normalize the
audio levels from node to node.

Obviously, this is an ambition project, and I'll make no claim to
success or completion. I'm trying to setup my node now on a real
link frequency and in doing so, I'd like the best audio sound
possible.

More on that topic as I trudge along. Most important part.... Have
fun and enjoy. If you have good files or procedures for this
excercise, by all means share them /:)

Help with Tahoe IRLP Install

Marshall Oldham
 

Greetings All,


I need help setting up the Tahoe IRLP node. Not having much luck.
We seem to be able to connect to other IRLP nodes and pass audio to them. However we can not hear audio coming back from them.

The node is installed at the high school here in tahoe and these are the network settings that we are using.

On the network inside the school the IP Adress 10.1.9.116
The gateway is 10.1.9.1
Outside IP address is 63.203.167.54

I had this node running at my house before bringing it here to
Lake Tahoe. It worked just great!

My outside IP address at home is 24.130.53.163. When I look
at the /home/irlp/custom/hosts file on the IRLP computer here
in Tahoe, I see an entry for my IRLP computer in Los Angeles
that looks like this:

24.130.53.163 stn365

When I look further in the file for the node here in Tahoe
I see:

24.130.53.163 stn363

Not good! Both nodes have the same IP address. If I telnet
to the node in LA I see the same stuff in the hosts file
there too.

I'm guessing that when I connect to a node from Tahoe, that
the audio from that "remote node" is routed back to my LA
node because of this problem with the hosts file.

What do you think?

Thanks!

- Marshall

Marshall,

A couple of quick things to check.
Verify CANT_RESOLVE_IP_LOCALLY=YES in the environment file.
Also, verify incoming port forwarding is set up properly on the school's
router.

Re: General question for the group

I don't mind it at all as I like to tinker a little myself.

Actually I thought this is what this list was started for
so that we don't overload Dave's list with off topic items.

regardless of what you do, let me know!

Subject: [irlp] General question for the group


I'm trying to be sensative to those that feel there are some off
topic discussions that occur on this list. To do so, I need your
opinion.

I'm a major tinkerer at heart and especially one that likes to play
with linux, I'm pretty dangerous as some of you have found out /:).

I'm going to be attempting to extend the functionality of linux,
IRLP, ham radio etc, through some TTS and other activities.

I'd love to share that information with the community at large, but I
don't want to frustrate those that feel this list is just for RF
based issues, schedule changes, etc.

So, my question. Is it appropriate to share my experiments on this
list, or would you like me to go start an application specific IRLP
list and invite those that want to participate to do it there?

I'd really prefer not to do the later. But again, I'm trying to be a
good moderator and make sure I honor the wishes of the participating
body.

So, what say you?
Alan (feel free to reply via email if you prefer)

More information

ne1h@...
 

All,

I've added a complete listing of the IRLP nodes in the database
section of the yahoo group. I've also cleanup up and organized the
files section. I've included another test file, 10 seconds of 1khz
audio note.

Yahoo now supports a photo album section, so if you have pictures of
your node and node equipment, might be interesting to share with
others.

I'm going to be creating a Poll to see if we can figure out what gear
people are having success with.

For those interested, we could have a "chat" sometime as well.
Either in the yahoo group or via IRC.

The web address directly to the group is

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/irlp

There you have it.... Hope this information is useful?? :)

Looks good Alan, just logged into the database myself. What level is your audio file at? (+/- how many samples?) And what level of deviation is that supposed to correspond to?

Well, maybe when VK3RGL moves to its final home. :)
