398HOW TO INCREASEE NUMBER OF LINES SEEN ON PI-STARThe list of calls is limited by design due to the amount of resources it takes to process the logs to generate the pages. In time I will be replacing the dashboard with a system that will use much less resource and then there will be much wider limits on the number of rows that can be displayed.

AF4FA: concern about band limitations
Rob: TG-99 is for simplex
304Does anyone know of a radio that is suitable for DMR that will work and be controlled by RigPi?Most VHF/UHF FM transceivers don’t support CAT control with a few exceptions mentioned in past posts to the group. When you add DMR capability the choices get small or none existent. It’s possible that you might find a solution in commercial radios intended for remote operation but then you have the issue of support in Hamlib. Perhaps you can scan the list of supported radios in Hamlib and check the radios specs.

There are Fusion and D-Star capabilities in some HF/VHF/UHF multi-mode radios (the FT-991A with System Fusion comes to mind) or you may be able to use a DMR “dongle” with one of those type radios.

Tonight we were looking for an answer about a device called a “RigPi.” It appears there is a website by those who build hardware around a fork of PiStar. The website is https://rigpi.net and hopefully this answers the question.
303What are some of the most active TG's so operators may listen and participate? is there a day and time that is best to join?TAC 310 311,

302Learning of DudeStar® on our DMR® Tech Net and the success people are having, I decided to give it a try. I've successfully installed and tested DudeStar on Windows 10®.

Running the single executable, pre-compiled for Windows® 7/10
Latest binary build, likely I'm missing something. Can the settings be saved? I find the need to reenter my callsign and DMR ID each time the executable is loaded.

DudeStar® for Linux I will compile the source from Github /the Linux version and try running it customized for the Raspberry Pi® 3B + and 64bit Pi 4 8MB using Rasbian™ 64 development image. The plan is to use a USB Mic and either a Bluetooth Speaker or maybe utilize the audio jack. Let you know how that goes. If anyone has already compiled from the source, please do share what you have learned.

266How to turn on talker aliasAF4FA - USES DMR ID INTO PKT SO ANY RADIO WHIO HAS IT ENABLES S/B ABLE TO SEE NAME AND ID EVEN IF NO CONTACTS, MOTOROLO DOES NOT HANDLE PROPERLY
265Different Color CodeThis terminology was introduced by Anytone and then by Baofeng for programming code plugs.
Prior to that, the commercial radio suppliers (Motorola and Hytera), just called the Admit Criteria as "Color Code" or "Color Code Free".
Originally, the recommendation was to set all "channels" or talk groups with a specific color code for admittance or access to the repeater. So then the confusion began. Many code plugs were created with "Different Color Code" and the radios worked...mostly. Then, recent Firmware upgrades have changed the rules and now, the more logical "Same Color Code" tag is needed to minimize issues like "Unknown IPSC ..." displays on the Netwatch.
264hotspot required rcv/tmt freq, is there freq to use?With the advent of hotspots for digital modes such as the sharkrf OpenSpot and DVMega, finding an open frequency has become an issue. Many of the frequencies I've seen on the brandmeister network for hotspots are between 432-433MHz (the weak signal portion of the band) or between 435.0 and 438.0 MHz.
BRARA uses 434.300
263how are pi-stars used at repeater sitesAF4FA - rather than use controller use dual radio modem, one as rcv and one txt acts as bridge, instead using ant, hardware carrier into pistar, acts as rptr controller, K4PMD-duplex setting 2m and 7cm separation is enuf to avoid duplexer, related to dynamic TG.

229How to increase or decrease number of station seen in dsdhboardThis mod doesn't do everything you ask for, but it's a step in the right direction:
Log into SSH and run the following commands:
rpi-rw
sudo sed -i 's/($i <= 19)/($i <= 29)/g' /var/www/dashboard/mmdvmhost/lh.php
rpi-ro
Change the value "29" to whatever you like (but keep it within reason). It will increase the depth of your browser window as a result,
but hey, you can scroll the window up and down.
Keep in mind: this "fix" is temporary - a future system update/upgrade may unwind this patch, so you'll have to rerun the commands above.

228pi-star ho to upgrade regular releaseUpdating the Pi-Star system to the new system by creating a new SD card

First thing to do is to save your current configuration by logging into your pi-star and going to configuration and the backup/restore and click on download configuration. This will create a zip file needed later.
Bring up your web browser and go to www.pistar.uk
On the left side near the bottom hover over downloads
then click on Download Pi-star
then click on bottom one (Pi-Star_RP1_V4.1.0-26-Mar-2020.zip) and
download it (save the file)

If you need the SD CARD FORMATTER program
Bring up your web browser and enter in the search box sd card formatter
pick the first entry and download the zip file
unzip it and install the program

If you need the IMAGE INSTALLER program
Bring up your web browser and enter in the search box balenaetcher
pick the first entry and download the exe file
Install the program

If you would rather use a different IMAGE INSTALLER
Bring up your web browser and enter in the search box w32diskimager
pick the first entry and download the exe file
Install the program

After you have done all the above
Insert your sd card into a holder and insert it into the computer
Make sure you write down the drive letter assigned to it.
Click on the sd card formetter and enter the drive letter associated to the SD card and format it.
Unzip the pi-star file and save it to the desktop
now click on the IMAGER program you chose and again make sure the drive letter is correct. Select the .img file you unzipped and write it to the SD card.
After the write is complete copy your saved configuration zip file from your old pistar to the base directory of the sd card.
You are now ready to insert the SD card into your Pi-Star hotspot and turn it on to automatically expand the system files and reapply your configuration. This will take a couple of minutes to do and then you can log into the Pi-Star and do an update to get current by going to configuration then expert then SSH access.
Enter pi-star then the password(raspberry). Then enter sudo pistar-update and after that completes enter sudo-pistar-upgrade. After this is done type exit to leave the SSH. If you had changed the password you can now reset it by going to configuration and entering your own password.

199I had trouble with my jumbo spot. The ber was set on 0. I changed it to -4.75. When I keyed the mike before it was above 2.7 and breaking up. Now, after the change it was .3 to point 4. I could bring it down but I will leave it alone for now.IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT BER (BIT ERROR RATE)
THE BIT ERROR ADJUSTMENT CAN VARY ON DIFFERENT HOT SPOT AND RADIO PAIRINGS. I HAVE SET YOUR BIT ERROR RATE TO A MIDDLE RANGE> YOU STILL MIGHT HAVE TO MAKE SOME MINOR TWEEKS TO GET A BER LOWER THAN 1%. (ON FUSION IT IS NORMAL TO HAVE A MUCH HIGHER BER) FIRST DETERMINE YOUR BER WITH THE RADIO YOU ARE USING.THERE IS REAL TIME BER RATE READING ON YOUR DISPLAY. IT IS NORMAL TO BOUNCE AROUND.YOU CAN ALSO SEE THE AVERAGE ON THE PI-STAR DASHBOARD.
IF YOUR BER IS ABOVE 1% FOLLOW THESE STEPS>>>>
1. OPEN UP PI-STAR DASHBOARD.
2. HIT CONFIGURATION TAB AT TOP OF DASHBOARD (USER IS pi-star PASSWORD IS raspberry).
3. HIT EXPERT TAB AT TOP OF DASHBOARD.
3. HIT MMDVMHost TAB AT TOP OF DASHBOARD.
4. GO DOWN TO THE 7th FIELD. IT IS CALLED Modem.
5. GO TO THE 6th SETTING. IT IS CALLED RX OFFSET. ( THE SETTING SHOWED IS WHAT I SET IT TO BE).
6. GO UP AND DOWN BY STEPS OF 100 SO IF I PUT -475 TRY -375 AND HIT APPLY CHANGES.
7. GO BACK AND KEY RADIO AND SEE WHAT THE BER IS. IF IT IS HIGHER GO THE OTHER WAY FROM -475 to -575.
8. REPEAT THIS PROCESS UNTILL YOU GET THE LOWEST BER RATE.
9. YOU CAN FINE TUNE BY LOWERING THE STEPS FROM 100 TO 50 TO 25.

NOTE: THIS CAN ALSO BE DONE FROM THE NEXTION SCREEN ON THE LINKS PAGE UNDER RX OFFSET. 73 ROBERT K4WZV
198When I switch to a different network, TGIF or Brandmeister, the network I switch to appears on my Pi_star Dashboard and my Hot Spot. However when I transmit my hot spot and Pi-Star show me transmitting but I am not actually connected to the network I switched to. To get connected I have to go back into configuration/DMR configuration and hit Apply Settings once again and then I am connected as expected. This started happening about a month ago on both of my hot spots. I did complete reinstalls of Pi-Star on both spots but the problem still exist. I know I am not the only one having this problem. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.UPDATE: The problem is being caused by the HOT SPOT SECURITY being turned on in selfcare in BM. I had everything setup with Hot Spot Security and password set in both selfcare and my hot spot. Well I turned off Hot Spot Security in BM selfcare and now everything works as expected. I switch to BM and hit apply setting and I connect as expected. Don't know if the problem with Hot Spot Security is with Pi-Star or BM.

193What is a trunked radio systemA trunked radio system is a digital two-way radio system that uses a digital control channel to automatically assign frequency channels to groups of users. In a half-duplex land mobile radio system a group of users with portable two-way radios communicate over a single shared radio channel, with one user at a time talking.
FMI: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trunked_radio_system
192DMR requires specialist test equipmentNot entirely true, your existing analogue Communications Analyser can still be used to test MOTOTRBO radios. The radios have a built-in Test Mode, which allow you to perform all the necessary tests in analogue mode on predefined frequencies. For details about the radios? RF Test Mode, refer to the relevant Basic Service Manual. Similarly, your existing power/SWR meter can still be used to check antennas ? simply put the radio into Test Mode and check the forward and reflected power there. The power or SWR can also be checked while the radio is in digital mode, however some meters will only show half the true power because of the TDMA transmission. Some power meters will give erroneous readings (needle will jump around) and therefore the antenna should be checked in analogue mode.
191Setting up a MOTOTRBO system is complicatedNo, setting up a MOTOTRBO system is just as difficult as setting up an analogue system. There is the MOTOTRBO System Planner; Motorola Solutions training and (of course) this Blog and my YouTube channel.
190DMR is owned by MotorolaDMR is a standard produced by ETSI. Motorola, along with a number of other companies (who also produce DMR equipment) were contributors to the standard but Motorola does not own the standard. MOTOTRBO is DMR but that is as far as it goes. The manufacturers of DMR equipment however, have agreed to use the ABME2+ vocoder algorithm from DVSI Inc. - ABME2+ is licensed by DVSI Inc.
189You can have multiple repeaters on the same frequency pair (just use different colour codes)DMR is not the magic bullet. The inability of operating two repeaters on the same frequency has nothing to do with DMR but is rather down to plain physics of RF. If two repeaters have overlapping coverage, they should use different frequencies. If there is a small amount of overlap, and the area where the overlap occurs is of little consequence (i.e. on a mountaintop where few/no users go), then the two sites can be segregated by colour code. Remember that in the area where the radio will either miss calls or produce garbled audio, if it receives two signals at the same time (a.k.a. doubling). At least one manufacturer produces DMR infrastructure, which apparently supports simulcast operation but this is beyond the scope of this Blog.
188Switching to DMR will eliminate or suppress interferenceDMR is not the magic bullet. If you are experiencing (or are perhaps causing) interference in analogue mode, you will still have interference (intermodulation) in digital mode. The only thing that will change is the symptom: interference in digital mode sounds different to interference in analogue mode.
187Switching to DMR will increase coverageAlthough the Forward Error Correction in MOTOTRBO radios, will increase the readability of received transmissions in weak signal conditions, there will be no improvement in coverage compared to analogue.
186Switching to DMR is difficult to implementSince the MOTOTRBO radios and repeaters support dual mode (analogue and digital) operation, the process of migrating customers from a purely analogue system, to a purely MOTOTRBO system, is uncomplicated. The rollover to digital can be implemented in phases and can be completed with virtually no disruption to communications. Also, since MOTOTRBO uses existing PMR frequencies, no new spectrum licences are required (only a change to the ITU modulation code) and the existing RF infrastructure (i.e. filtering and antennas) can be reused.
185Myths about DMR (MOTOTRBO): DMR is not compatible with analogueSimply not true, Motorola has a number of solutions which allow analogue and MOTOTRBO radio to interoperate and, in some cases, use the same system. MOTOTRBO radios have the ability to scan an analogue and digital channel for activity ? this ensures the radio user does not miss any calls on either system. MOTOTRBO repeaters can be configured to operate in Dynamic Mixed Mode (DMM) which allows the repeater to switch between analogue and digital, depending on what signal has been received. A number of Motorola Application Partners have easy to use solutions which allow the interconnection of almost any communication system, to a MOTOTRBO system.
184Difference between DMR Tier 1, DMR Tier 2And it has 3 different DMR standards: DMR Tier 1, DMR Tier 2, DMR Tier 3. Today we are going to say the difference between DMR Tier 1 and Tier 2.
DMR Tier 1 features:
1.It uses 446 MHz frequency band in Europe and US,licence free band.
2. ETSI specification defines two time slots in 12.5 KHz channels as per TDMA structure.
3. The DMR Tier-1 devices transmit maximum power of 0.5Watt. It mean the power limit to 0.5W.
4. Works in Direct Mode (Radio-to-Radio).
5. Tier 1 DMR devices are best for individuals, recreation, small retail, or other situations that do not require wide area coverage.
DMR Tier 2 features:
1. It uses 66 to 960 MHz frequency band. License Need.
2. This licenced band is used for mobile phones and conventional radio systems.
3. DMR Tier-2 is direct replacement for analog conventional radio.
4. This mode can use repeater to extend the radio coverage.
5. This mode is used for high power transmission devices.
So Tier 1 and Tier 2 radios actually should be able to talk to each other fine if you put them on the same frequency but because tier 1 radios are only able to work on the pmr446 frequencies you have to program your tier 2 radios to work on the same frequencies to be cable to talk to a tier 1 radio.

178Tired of a 20mw hotspot that only working in the same room. Want to use your hotspot around town, this is the unit for you. This mmdvm hotspot will run conventional CLI mmdvm or Pi-Star. This mmdvm is presently configured running Pi-Star on a 25w Motorola M10 single channel UHF radio. The M10 is of the Motorola Radius GM300 family. No hacking in the radio as all necessary connections are on the accessory connector. The mmdvm hotspot is plug and play presently on 438.1125 at 20w output. If you are going to monitor very busy TG's you may want to put some air on the heatsink. I will provide a Clicks-On switch with the sale to control a fan. This mmdvm became surplus when I purchased a MTR2k mmdvm board for my MTR2000's and was in service until I swapped it out. Includes: Motorola M10 UHF Mobile Radio ZUM Radio mmdvm ver 1.01 with necessary cables and connectors Raspberry Pi 8GB SDcard - With Pi-Star installed Clicks-On switch $270 Shipped - CONUS
177Using Pi-Star 4.1.0-RC8 with MMDVM_HS on a Pi 3 Model B and an AnyTone UV878 Plus.

I have tweaked txoffset and rxoffset as well as txpower - however the best BER I seem to get on TX is 0.4%

Are there other settings I should be adjusting? I'd like to get to 0.0 BER if possible.
The setting I gave you for the tx and rx offset were only to get you in range, take them up or down by 5 and watch the change, I have a Tytera MD 380 and Yaesu FT70 D that will only get my ber low by adjusting only the rx offset. The lowest ber I can get on the FT 70 D is .01 and the Tytera .02. Play with it and see if theres an improvement, if not change it by 10 either direction, get it to the lowest and adjust by 1 until you determine the lowest possible ber. No 2 radios are as like as you would expect them to be, the 130 was a starting point. Best of luck Rick N9UMJ, AF4FA: 0.4 IS VERY GOOD NOT WORY ABOUT IT, IS LIKE SWR OF 1.0 OR LESS THAN 1.0
176I often find myself stuck in a TG with a long conversation with no breaks between folks chatting. I try to sneak a Disconnect in but generally end up TX-ing in the same talk group.

Is there a setting in Pi-Star that decreases the time when the last signal is received and when I can issue a disconnect? I though that RF / Net Hangtime might be the answer but was not sure about changing those.
AF4FA: BM CONFIG NEAR TOP MMDVM CONFIG DMR MODE SET TO BEYND, RF HAND TIME AND NET HAND TIME CAN BE ADJUSTED, 20S EACH BECASE IF HAVE MULTIPLE MODES NEED HIGH ENOUGH SO SO NOT SWITCH MODES, IF ONLY IS DMR CHANGE RF HAND AND NET HAND TO LOWER LEVELS EG RF = 3S AND NET HANG TIME 4SEC, GOES TO LISTEN MODE AND GET N BEFORE OTHER PERSON PICKS UP.

172Can you have a hotspot running at your home qth and have another one running at an away location. I just set up a second hotspot and can't seem to get it to communicate with the network. My hotspot at home is working fine.I have multiple RF Shark openSPOT devices running at various locations (homes and auto). With hotspots one normally enters their personal DMR ID (e.g. 3125039). However, do NOT put the exact same DMR ID into multiple hotspots that are on the network simultaneously. To differentiate, add a two-digit suffix number to the ID to make them unique (e.g. 312503901, 312503902, etc.). This will avoid network issues with having the same ID on from multiple active hotspots. Hope this helps, Barry Baines, WD4ASW (Keller, TX) in pistar go to DMR ESSID: set dmrid and use drop down seq id

43Some users of the GCARC DMR repeater near delray have reported not being able to hit the dmr machine well. One day I traveled in a radious pattern north of the repeater using TG 31000 to echo back to me my voice report so as to confirm accuracy of this report. The users are correct there is a northern limit near Atlantic ave in Delray with pockets working well and others not so well. Any time I was able to transmit on a hight spot or on a railroad crossing it seems to work fine. The quesion is is there a better less time consuming way to confirm the coverage pattern?

40When a person is transmissing and another station hits the PTT, might the digital packet be interrupted and what are the side affects?KI8A, ir rptr will not accept call
N2ELG - depends codeplug settings (force mode) AF4FA admit criteria determines this if on pistar, keep to always and server will deterine, if simplex use always else use channel free

Admit Criteria
This determines when you are allowed to transmit. The options are:
Color Code (preferred) - Allows you to transmit only when the time slot is available.
Channel Free - Allows you to transmit when the channel is clear, however there may be someone using the same time slot.
Always (impolite) - This allows you to transmit even if there is another QSO on a different time slot. This would interrupt the current QSO. The only time 'Always' should be used is if on a simplex channel or in the analog mode.
39When using pistar and a disconnect is performed from an active TG, when does it take affect and why?when go to next tg and hit ptt it takes affect
38What is needed to have a pi-star configured using duplex such as 2 antennas, how far apart should these antenna be from each other, why and what are the advantages?KI8A, no good answer

N2ELG - need 2 HATS for 2 freqs, KO4DJG - pro: disconn tg due to 2 freq
n2elg - may be 70cm and 2m, may need to be seperated by 6in, setup as repeater
af4fa - sep ant most of board are close, sep freq for in and out, use 2 radios with 2 diff TS, create repeater for local use
37When traveling in a car, where is the best place to place the hotspot and why?KI8A
36When using a pistar can it be configured to connect to a 2m RF DMR radio? Why or why not?there are dual band board, have to check - af4fa
35When on the fringe of hitting a DMR repeater, the machie can be chachuncked with a valid DMR return tone. The problem is the voice packes are compromised. Without getting closer to the repeater is there a way to improve the voice packets to the repoeater cush as power or antenna height to help ensure the packets make it to the repeater?
34When listening to a station via a hotspot/pistar for example, the volume is much louder than when another station is using RF to a repeater. Is there some way to reduce the audio for those hotspot station when listening without affecting the RF stations using the DMR repeaters?TY offers change to UHF 380/380
AF4FA: anytone, cps opt settings ctrol vol level min max, and mic gain
33if a pistar shows loss, when and what action should be taken?N2ELG-adjust settings, AF4FA - dashboard in loss column, station to rptr, rptr and IP, or station and pistar, latency issue, BER bit error rate station and hoysdpot too much of decrepancy of radio and pistar ssh > mmdvmcal (see BLOG) to figure correct offset to adjust freq to get BER down
32When should a pistar firmware be updated and when not?N2ELG does weekly, N1QFH when hears others update firmware, leaves it on 24-7, KO4DJG - update pi daily, upgrade pi os on demand, AF4FA - update binaries on demand lynx, update 1st and upgrade pi eg 4,1,2 to 4,1,3, if go from v4 to v5 need to reburn new sd card, depend on level of complexity
31How do you set talker alias to include your qth like is seen on a pistar group activity?The only thing I know about that is on an Anytone 878 there is a setting in the CPS program under digital settings called talk alias where you can turn on the feature and select what to display. - af4fa al
30If a pistar does not power up properly, after how long should it be retried and what are some factors to consider if it does not power up properly?unplug, wait 30 sec, give caps time to drain, try reseet mini card, then take apart and reassumble due to oxidation, if not properly shutdown, can create sw in middle of update, could corrupt download, issue pistar shutdown command, setup remote access to add channel shutdown to that shutdown channel, it will logiocally shutdown, or on pi atar go to admin and shutdown, wait 30 sec before close
29Is there a limit as to how long a pistar should be powered up and why?updates occur late at nite, lyniux and pi ic binaries, leave on once per week per nite,

5DMR repeater behaving differnet while mobile for TG to TG. Example: using my Favorites zone on TYT MD390 UHV as mobile, I was able to hit GCARC Pomp 443.35Mh on TG-310035 with normal results. My QTH at the time was Lake Ida and Congress in Delray Beach FL. When I changed to TG-3112529 on same machine, it was not able to hit the machine, I did not change my location, was in my car. When I go to my QTH where my antenna is 40 ft high, this did not occur, I had normal results on both. And when I was using my pi-star / hotspot, hitting TG310025 and 3112529 worked normally. Can you offer an explanation?
