NASA Audio Broadcast - Slightly OT

Chris Schwab
 

Good morning!

During the space shuttle era there was at least one IRLP reflector
that carried the NASA TV audio during space shuttle missions. While I
agree that times have changed and there are other means of following
the missions, it was nice to be able to follow along during the
mission while out driving around by listening in on the audio via
IRLP.

With Spacex (and Boeing) soon to be launching manned missions, is
anyone carrying this audio still, or are there plans to?

Thanks,
Chris N4BSA

No. All the standard IRLP timers are in play. PTT lock of 5 minutes, COS lock of 4 minutes and the inactivity timer set to whatever you set it to in custom/timeoutvalue

Basically the IRLP software makes a standard IRLP call to a locally installed copy of theBridge conference software at 127.0.0.1 (localhost). Echolink call set up is handled by theBridge after the IRLP call is established locally (yes, echolink conferences can make calla, something IRLP reflectors cannot). This is why when you interrogate the status of your node during an echolink call, it tells you, you are connected to yourself, which is actually true from the perspective of IRLP.

Echolink charges their users a annual fee (US$40) to operate a conference bridge. But they tolerate EchoIRLP installations as not really being a conference when set to a max of 2 users (the 2 users being your IRLP node and an external echolink node). MaxConferenceClients must be configured to 2, no more no less. Echolink does scan their network and will shut off your node if they find MaxConferenceClients set to more than 2. You may also run into an Echolink conference configured to not allow calls from other conferences. This can block EchoIRLP stations from connecting. If that happens, there is nothing you can do on your side to fix it.

None of us on the team really knows how the Echolink side of EchoIRLP actually works, thus we do not support the package at all. We have no insight in to the echolink network and cannot help with EchoIRLP issues at all. If you have trouble with EchoIRLP, we will probably tell you to check your echolink callsign and password (very common), and/or re-install the package. Remember the -L and -R callsigns are completely separate entities in Echolink. You must apply for a separate -L or -R callsign before the software will work.

There used to be a separate group that provided support for EchoIRLP, but they have gone silent and appear to no longer exist.

Nope. you can only ever have a single node on the same IP address. It has always been that way, do not expect that to change.

 

If you are running Debian, you can sign up for the free IRLP VPN service, which will provide additional unique IP addresses for each of your nodes. For information see  https://irlp.groups.io/g/IRLP/files/IRLP%20VPN%20Service

 

I have no idea what changing your frequency has to do with any of that.

Log in to each node and run the command

Re: Change Frequency

David Cameron - IRLP
 

You have to make the changes from the node itself, or from a router that has the same "external IP" as the node.

I assume you are running nodes on the IRLP VPN if you have three of them. If that is the case, you have to turn off the VPN, update the IP address of the node on the IRLP servers, wait a few minutes, then you will be able to choose between the nodes behind the same IP as your browser.

If you want to bypass this, just edit the status page info on the node itself:

Re: Node Time Out

Thank you
I’ll go the route where I will leave the default time out for nodes and disable the time out for reflectors.

There are two inactivity timeouts. One for node to node, the other for Reflector calls. Default values are 240 seconds and 1200 seconds respectively. Node to node is set in the file custom/timeoutvalue. The reflector timeout is set in the environment file.

export REFLECT_TIMEOUT_VALUE=43200

Set it to the value you want. Although I would NOT suggest disabling it completely, rather set it to a value long enough for your requirements.

An even better option is if you have a particular reflector you hang out on and want that destination to never time out. Simply add an entry in custom_decode such that a particular destination is configured with the “notimeout" flag set, to not time out.

For example, I have three reflectors set to not time out, all others time out normally. custom/custom_decode entries below.

if [ "$1" = "9200" ] ; then "$SCRIPT"/connect_to_reflector ref9200 notimeout ; exit 1 ; fi
if [ "$1" = "9600" ] ; then "$SCRIPT"/connect_to_reflector ref9600 notimeout ; exit 1 ; fi
if [ "$1" = "9735" ] ; then "$SCRIPT"/connect_to_reflector ref9735 notimeout ; exit 1 ; fi


pico -w custom/custom_decode
pico -w custom/environment

You need to be root to edit the environment file. Just be very careful, a single keystroke mistake can render your node totally inoperative.
