Re: New 16GB flash upgrades available - limited numbers

Don Morehouse
 

Hi Dave.

I have had this node down in the Castlegar area for several years and I am going to give the node to the sponsor.
He has indicated to me that he would like to do the upgrade with the wiring. ($140)
If you can forward any forms etc to me and I will get with Jim and get it all sorted out.
We will do the paperwork and at the same time switch it over to his call etc.
Have enclosed a picture that Jim sent and if not what you require, I will take another photo for you.
The new owner will be: VE7JER

James Edward Rogers
BOX 168
GENELLE, BC V0G 1G0
Canada

Please let me know if you will need anything else.

Understanding clear_IRLP_GPIO

cupricus
 

I'm eager to understand what the script "clear_IRLP_GPIO" does behind the scenes. Clearly the INGPIO and OUTGPIO variables point to BCM lines on the GPIO connector. Suppose I want to have PTT, for instance, operate on some other pin. Can I do that by simply changing the "17" to something else? If not, what else is necessary to do this?

I'm asking because I'm fiddling around with using an audio hat rather than a USB interface and there are some BCM line collisions between the hat and the IRLP board.

Hello John
Here are the 2 manuals.
User manual and service manual
On the 596, there is an IC that is the audio output.
One of the pins is the B+. Or the power pin for the IC.

When the RAS is satisfied, that means, both PL and COR
are good, then a driver transistor switch passes B+
to this IC, and there is audio output.

I think, not sure, it is one of the corner pins. If
your battery is 9.6 volts, then almost 9.6 will show up
on this pin.

Solder a wire here, and you are good to go. No need
for a pullup resistor! But 9.6v may be a bit much for
your controller or IRLP board to handle. So you will
need a resitive divider. Say, 10k and 3.9k in series.
From IC pin to 10k, then 3.9k then ground. Pick the
RAS signal from the junction of those two resistors.

Then, no signal = 0v. RAS will be about 3 volts.
You can adjust those values.

I made up 4 of those nodes using a 596 or a 496, and
they all worked well as far as that goes.

The radio needs to be in a quiet RF zone. What often
happens is that noise will trigger the RAS, and once
open, if the noise persists, it will stay open. This
is often the case in a city, specially downtown. In
a quiet rural setting, they might be ok. But be
careful ... a HOUSE can generate lots of birdy RF.
Cable TV specially bad. Ethernet likes to trigger it.
Search for a quiet channel. If you have been "assigned"
a channel, you may be unfortunate.

That is not the fault of the squelch, but the radio's
front end. I drove a schoolbus for years. We had
Motorola CDM1350's etc. They were always breaking
squelch. Worse was the gas pumps at the local fillig
station. Had to turn the radio off ... and remember
to turn it back on when I drove away!

Its a good radio, and unless you lock the PTT on one
of those IRLP nodes that are always on, it handles the
heat quite well.

That's odd, covid here has increased activity, and most hams have been
pretty good, but we do have a self appointed radio cop who insists that
certain things are illegal and has caused enough problems to cause a
major link system here to be temporarily shut down. :(

If a node owner is expected to monitor the kids, would it not be wise

The problem is that codes get shared, and then the friends not IRLP
savvy are the abusers.   Having the ability to set access for a user
with unique number would help, because when you get a complaint you
can revoke that person's access and not affect other "honest" hams.
If you're handy with Bash scripting, it should be possible to script a
user access system, on a per user basis (and you could even have it
managed via a web app).  Possibly even a challenge/response system, if
you really wanted to lock it down.  I haven't attempted this, but Bash
scripting is very versatile, and it's not too hard to interface to
databases or other data sources. :)

I'm about to take my node down.  I don't know if it's the Covid,
effects of lockdown, or feral politics, but I've had a few people who
were outright rude and argumentative to other users who were simply
minding their business.  It's to the point where some people look for
things to disagree with just to start a fight.

That's unfortunate. :(

If you happen to set up an EXPerimental reflector, and that reflector also had a presence in the Echolink and Allstar network (or anything else), you could achieve the same objective. Side benefit, you could get rid of the hardware repeater controller entirely.

Re: Multiple Echolink Sessions

Dave, Going to make this my final comment.

Yeah! shouts everyone!!!

I am not advocating anything.
I merrily state AUDIO is AUDIO. Why Panic?.

The IRLP stance, of it's not, if it came from a polluted source, is fine. A policing or filtering of Audio to determine if it came from a so called polluted source is not achievable if coming from RF.

Should people choose to join an IRLP connected conversation from the RF end of any IRLP broadcast. You, Me nor anyone has the means to detect when a so called IRLP infraction occurs.

It happens silently and unless told, there is no knee jerk reaction alerting the IRLP police. Life just goes on.

Dave Cameron's RF to RF philosophy is a good one. I have no qualms with his wishes.

Until recently when different VOIP platforms growth came to be putting their signals on RF
more and more. IRLP had very few issues to contend with from the RF End only Internet Network issues.

Some of the self imposed or dictated policies by some are just as Tony put it "a cultural thing". Technology and different VOIP platforms is forcing a culture change.

Be it ... Good or bad... Like it or not.
IT IS HAPPENING. You either adapt or use all your Amateur Hardware for TARGET Practice before junking it.

This is a much higher standard than simply being compliant with federal rules and regulations. IRLP rules actually apply to your RECEIVER and your entire system. We also have significant limitations on the traffic that is allowed.
Even when something bad happens that is not your direct personal fault, we expect you, the node owner, to take care of it. At the point a signal enters your receiver, you own it. It becomes your fault when something bad happens. IRLP reflector managers have a suite of tools that can be used to prevent your repeater from impairing the larger network. But it is preferable that you take of the problem at your end.

This user's transmissions are no different than any other person of the group that may be chatting. He does not interfere in any way. Converses via RF and My system repeats it locally. If someone connects to my IRLP Node during that time. The AUDIO from him or anyone else using my repeater is going to be heard.

My previous point... Should someone on his transceiver from his Allstar/Echolink happen to connect/talk while he is using my repeater no one would ever know the additional user wasn't a local RF user if not told differently. This does and will continue to happen as technology changes. A fact of life that is beyond your or my control. Mostly people just want to chat. They could care less about what platform their audio originates on. It's a hey there's Joe thing. Wonder where he's been.

I am glad to say I'm not part of the culture that thinks everyone needs to keep all radio gear segregated and locked in different parts of the basement to be taken out one piece at a time and must be returned before playing with another.

I do try to follow the IRLP guidelines but I'm never going to get Paranoid about someones AUDIO. Enough said

I've been following this thread for a while, so my comment:

I help maintain an IRLP node that's been serving the greater Los Angeles area on an open repeater for 18 years, & in all that time not once have we ever had someone backfeed Echolink, Allstar or any other VoIP service into our repeater. If someone did do that, it would be immediately obvious to my ears.

In light of the above, it seems to me that this all sounds like someone trying to make a case for open RoIP access without network restrictions based on misbehaving users. Believe you me, SoCal is a hotbed of the latter yet we've never had it happen. So this whole thread is moot.
