Audio issue to reflector 0077

xe2mbe@...
 

Hi everyone:

We own the node 8422, that  what was out of service about one year due to lightning discharge . Days ago we reinstall the node but it has an audio issue, the audio woks fine (upstream and downstream) to any node, I mean per to per connection, also works on reflectors, at least I  tested on reflector 9208, the issue appear to be only on experimental reflector 0077,  audio stream from reflector works fine, but nobody ear our transmitions (upstream audio). Last week I send an email  0077 reflector admin to know if there is a access rectriction to our node but he said that there is no restriction configured, so he suggest me create a support case to IRLP.  

Could you suggest me some task to resolve this issue?

If you good connectivity across 9208 and a few others, including the echo reflector there is really nothing we can to do help with this problem. The Experiemntal reflectors are not actually part of the IRLP network. All we do is assign an IP address to a number to make it dialable (if your is configured to do so). We have no knowledge of what any of them are doing, or even if they still exist. So you are on your own to work with owner/admin to get your node to work.

Make sure your node is working correctly with all the IRLP assets you need. There is nothing special about 9208, but check out a few others. If IRLP is not working, we’ll be happy to work you at installs@ irlp.net. But we cannot help with EXPerimental reflector access. It’s not our stuff.

I am the one who originally created experimental reflector 0077 a few
years ago but I don't believe I have login access any more.

They may have changed something I don't know about since last I talked to them.

If you forward the email conversation you had with them I would be
happy to try and help.

Some quick checks that I like to do if there is a problem with an
experimental reflector that I built is to check the "connected nodes
list" to see if my node number shows up.

http://xe1dvi.crabdance.com/Chan_Zero_Node_Numbers.html

Then check the log of nodes recently keying up the reflector to see if
my node number showed up after I tried to talk on that reflector

http://xe1dvi.crabdance.com/channel_0

Then I check to see if the ispeaker and imike processes in my IRLP
node are running properly when I'm connected to the reflector. You
can see the processes on your irlp node with the "ps aux" command
when logged into your node.

If your node is connected to experimental reflector 0077 then the
ispeaker and imike processes should look something like this:

repeater 6173 0.0 0.0 2440 472 pts/0 S 08:21 0:00
/home/irlp/bin/ispeaker -j300 300 -f216.21.9.156 -p2074


repeater 6176 0.3 0.1 2444 1180 pts/0 S 08:21 0:00
/home/irlp/bin/imike -f 216.21.9.156

Finally I like to run the "readinput" command on my node to verify
that cos and ptt show active when I'm talking to the reflector and
when someone is talking back to me. Also verify that there are no
DTMF indications on readinput unless someone is actually sending touch
tones. We have had cases where the IRLP interface board was not
properly plugged into the node computer and that caused a false DTMF
indication which in turn muted audio from the node to the reflector.
