XLX addition

Adding an extra radio button for XLX. Now you can always connect to XLX hosts managed by the XLX team. No need for adding hosts in the XRF/DCS or REF hosts files.

Will be available in the next release.

AMBE Server

I found this post on Facebook about a new portable AMBE Server made by the Japanse XRF reflector club.  Looks very promising!

Take a look at the English explanation: https://reflectorloversclub.jimdofree.com/

 

Working on new Peanut project

Working on new free software.. This time no digital mode but analog over internet. So make a QSO with an analog radio via the DVAP ( Red Dongle ).

Experimenting with DVAP, ThumbDV and BlueDV

Fun experiment. I converted DSTAR/DMR to the ThumbDV and forwarded it to a DVAP. The DVAP is transmitting/receiving in Analog!

BlueDV web Experiment

Last 3 days I was working on BlueDV WEB. My first web application.
I used a ThumbDV for transcoding the DSTAR  and DMR stream to web.

This version is not for download!

The web app is linked to the reflector XLX076 D and DMR plus reflector.

Inrico T320

Yesterday  I received a Inrico T320 for test. This one is much better then the R77 I have.

Experimenting with ThumbDV and analog radio

Did some experiments with the ThumbDV or AMBE3000 and an analog radio. Very funny to experiment with. Sound is pretty good if you stay in range.

Working now on experimental DSTAR control via analog DTMF. e.g. (DTMF) B7602 = XRF076 B

I used a DRA818, but it is better to use the DATA port of a radio like Yaesu or ICOM. The DRA818 is a very cheap radio so do not expect high quality sound.

I used:

Commands DRA818:

AT+DMOSETGROUP=0,145.8000,145.8000,0000,4,0000
AT+SETFILTER=0,0,0
AT+VOLUME=4

  • USB soundcard or internal sound card of my PC
  • Wouxun analog radio
  • CH340 serial TTL ( connected CTS and RTC for controlling the DRA818 ) ( TinyTronics Netherlands )
