Agreed. But an EXP node could have anything connected to it. No guarantee it even involves Ham Radio. The network has some obligation to ensure normal IRLP connections are Hams. Using an EXP as a source for that is what makes it IRLP illegal.

For the record, I'm not a big fan of network newscasters, unless
they're manually controlled as part of a bigger exercise (e.g. our
WIA news, where there's a callback afterwards). I tend to feel that
there's other media better suited to "on demand" news, such as
downloading the MP3 direct from the source, or for some automation,
podcasting. :)
I agree with that too.

PCI soundcards that multiplex audio

Gary Weddle
 

After reviewing the recent posting activity on the subject of PCI
sound cards, one comes to the conclusion that a list of compatible
cards is nearly impossible to accurately compile. In addition the
discussion lead to piecemeal recommendations of particular cards that
were known to "work". However, no mention was made of the cards that
both "worked" and multiplexed audio so the cwid audio mixes with IRLP
audio rather than just covering it. Can anyone make a recommendation
of a PCI soundcard that will do both? My current card (a no-name)
works fine, but does not multiplex. I would like to correct that
shortcoming. Any recommentations would be appreciated.

Correct. But that would be an illegal crosslink.

See www.rpm.org/max-rpm/ch-rpm-install.html for some help on installing
RPM files. e.g.

rpm -i speaktime-2.0.0-1.i386.rpm

if you have already "downlaoded" it. You could use...

wget http://irlp.kc6hur.net/downloads/speaktime-2.0.0-1.i386.rpm

to grab the file. However, "rpi -i" can also use a URL instead of a file
you have already grabbed.

So, should i just copy and paste in the irlp/custom/decode_encode file
????? i have just want to install the star 69 and the speak time
script ,that's all.
You would have to install the Star69 script first. You can grab it from
http://irlp.kc6hur.net/downloads/star69-2.0.0-1.i386.rpm. Once the Speak
Time or Star69 scripts are installed, you can add an entry to your
custom_decode file so you can command the scripts to run from DTMF
commands sent over the radio.

if [ "$1" = "1" ] ; then "$CUSTOM"/speaktime ; exit 1 ; fi

should i just add this line after the one i have now ???
If it's in /home/irlp/custom that should work.

Mine is a bit different, probably because it's an embedded node. I added
the "beep" and the "id_now". The code I use is *24. Looking at your
example, it looks like you want to call it with just the single digit
"1".

if [ "$USE_SPEAKTIME" = "YES" ] && [ "$1" = "S24" ] ;
then /home/irlp/scripts/beep ;
/home/irlp/features/speaktime/speaktime ;
/home/irlp/features/morse_id/id_now ; exit 1 ; fi

The "exit 0" in your example should be on the very last line of the
script.

the nodes are working good at the moment ,no problem too report .
You could always make a backup copy of custom_decode before you modify
it!

Ask in here. There's a number of experimental systems up. I have a node number, haven't got around to installing the software yet, might get a chance to do that today, though I'm not too keen to have regular nets on it too soon, because it might be up and down a bit, depending on experimentation. :)

Unfortunately, that is not possible. By definition, reflectors cannot
make calls. Secondly there are no PGP keys associated with any of the

But as you (as a reflector owner - should) know, reflector owners can punch a hole in the firewall to allow an incoming connection from a system such as exp0016, if they want to.

If the machine is ultra-low on RAM the kernal OOM killer (out of memory) will often hit syslogd. Just a thought.

Something is broken.

IRLP does not change any of the default logging done by the OS. The
IRLP logs (/home/irlp/log/) rolls monthly. Is your disk full?
Although that usually makes the machine crash.

Check to see if syslogd is still running. If it is not, I have no
idea why.

Beats me... If you are interested in using one of the experimental reflectors, you will have to contact the owner of one, or create your own. Since the EXP machines are private, there is no public way that I know of, to reach one (other than dialing them up). Maybe one of them will pop in here and offer their machine. They are all numbered 0010 thru 0031 so far. You can see then in the file scripts/exp-x- reference. New ones are simply added to the list. The biggest problem you may have is getting potential participants to modify their nodes to allow the connection. There is no way to tell for sure, but I bet the number of nodes that allow unauthenticated calls to EXP machines, is pretty small.

I don't have time to look now, but I thought someone gave the command to
parse all that out more than once. It could be incorporated into a
script and run on a cron now and then. Sorry if I'm mistaken.

I wouldn't hold your breath. Any connectivity to one of the EXP nodes
must absolutely be limited to those nodes that modify their

severe heartburn for those nodes that intend for no connectivity other
