No OUTPUT to IRLP


mpray
 

Hi Everyone,

I've browsed other posts on this page, but I seem to have a weird issue with a new IRLP install.  I have a Motorola radio connected to a desktop computer.  All troubleshooting scripts pass.  We are also using a coordinated simplex frequency with a PL Tone for the locals to use it.   We tested a couple of things.

-Motorola radio in shack to HT outside via simplex works fine
-HT to Motorola via simplex works fine
-IRLP can be heard on both radios
-Transmit to IRLP does not work for either radio.  Key up sound is heard, but no audio on the receiving end. I tested with someone else connecting to a different IRLP node connected on the same reflector.  I could hear them but they can't hear me.
-When doing audiotest I can hear the prerecorded audiotest
-When trying to connect to echo reflector, I get no audio back
-In alsamixer all mic levels are in the green, and nothing is muted.

The problem seems to be that my audio output to IRLP is muted, but I see nothing else to 'unmute', as the audio is fine via simplex.

I've tried switching input sound to line instead of mic, i've also tried enabling and disabling loopback.  Auto-mute has a few settings I've tried to switch though, but I still have the same issue.

I will try that, and thank you for telling me about the procedures here.  I’m new to the form

You also could have a broken or incorrectly wired cable.

I tested with someone else connecting to a different IRLP node connected on the same reflector.
I also wouldn't be using a normal reflector to test with. The echo reflector is your friend with this. Make sure everything is working on the echo reflector, if it doesn't work there, it isn't going to work for the rest of the world.

As Dave said, make sure of your wiring to the radio and the IRLP side of things. And when you say "Motorola" that narrows it down to a few thousand models. If you let us know what model and how you have it hooked up, we may be able to help there.

I am getting ready to put together my own IRLP node.  I have a general knowledge of what is needed but it sure would helpful if someone put up a schematic drawing or all the components and how they hook together.

It also would be very helpful to see suggestions of a radio that works best, where to get the software and how the radio connects to the computer.

I apologize if this exists but I can't seem to find it.  I have seen the schematic on Daves site but it's very confusing.

Many thanks, John

Most folks make up their own cable (it is pretty easy as cables go). The IRLP connector pin out is covered in the Documentation, and on the wiki http://wiki.irlp.net/

Further, there several sample radios with cabling shown on the main web site, IRLP.net. Look at link on the left “Node Radios”

So much for a ham radio operator if you can't make up a couple of simple cables.

I know a lot of people use some of the Alinco mobiles and other ham radios, I wouldn't use one for the kind of continuous duty you would have for this kind of operation.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm.  Not sure if your comment was meant to irritate.  I am almost 80, have designed homing systems for torpedoes and built way more bread board projects than most.  I just want a cable and am willing to pay for it.  I don't think there is any shame in that.

Thanks, John

Of course it was meant to irritate. He’s just one of the demi-Gods that thinks every amateur radio operator should have soldering skills before acquiring their license. Many operators use Alinco DR-x35 mobiles for IRLP radios due to their great transmit and reception quality. Heck, I’ve been using mine since 2014 and it’s been flawless. I bought one of the Alinco cables from irlpcables, and it works great as well. Anyways, I digress.

Everyone just wants to be an appliance operator and no one wants to build anything. That is what is irritating, along with an appliance operator calling people they don't know names. And I DO sign my name, call sign, and node number on my emails.

"Reception quality"?  I guess it depends on what you call "quality".  I had a DR-435 & had to get my money back because 2 separate units had oscillations in the front-end amplifier.  Depening on the temperature of the radio, the oscillation sometimes fell right on top of the club repeater's output.  Also the CTCSS decoder falses on noise & is very slow to release, sometimes as long as 3 seconds.  Not a good radio to use in a congested area where you really need to use CTCSS unless you want to relay significant amounts of co-channel traffic down your IRLP link every time a user unkeys.

I think the reason the Alinco DR series mobiles are so popular for IRLP links is simply the convenience factor: buy a pre-made cable & be done with it, while more capable Motorola & Kenwood commercial radios all require a bit of work to interface.

Seems like you're the one that jumped to contusions.  Without knowing him you labeled him an appliance guy.

I could have thought of a half dozen completely valid reasons for a guy wanting to buy rather than build, maybe he's blind or paralyzed.  Nope, he's just 80 and ready to throw money rather than time at problems.

Hope I'm still annoying you when I'm 80.

Thanks Butch.  Sorry to cause a stir.  I got my novice in 57.  Will take my extra next month.  I'm trying all forms of communication and thought an IRLP node for my small community would be very appreciated by all local hams.

Once I get all I need to put the node together it should be up and running for all.

Again, Thanks.

Good luck. I'm by far not an expert, but I've built several nodes, and it is a lot of fun and works very well.

When you get up and running, give me a call on 3148.

IRLP node for my small community would be very appreciated by all local
hams.

Once I get all I need to put the node together it should be up and running
for all.

Again, Thanks.

Yep, I agree. How quickly some people judge. I got my novice in 1961,
never got on the air, got my general in 1968, now an extra. I'm totally
blind, and I just can't solder that small stuff. I'm glad to pay someone
else to do such things.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm. Not sure if your comment was meant to irritate. I am almost
80, have designed homing systems for torpedoes and built way more bread
board projects than most. I just want a cable and am willing to pay for
it. I don't think there is any shame in that.

Thanks, John

So much for a ham radio operator if you can't make up a couple of simple
cables.

I know a lot of people use some of the Alinco mobiles and other ham
radios, I wouldn't use one for the kind of continuous duty you would have
for this kind of operation.

Most folks make up their own cable (it is pretty easy as cables go). The
IRLP connector pin out is covered in the Documentation, and on the wiki
http://wiki.irlp.net/


Further, there several sample radios with cabling shown on the main web
site, IRLP.net. Look at link on the left “Node Radios”

I am getting ready to put together my own IRLP node. I have a general
knowledge of what is needed but it sure would helpful if someone put up
a
schematic drawing or all the components and how they hook together.


It also would be very helpful to see suggestions of a radio that works
best, where to get the software and how the radio connects to the
computer.


I apologize if this exists but I can't seem to find it. I have seen
the schematic on Daves site but it's very confusing.

Many thanks, John
