DRT 148 - 20180215
Thursday Night D-STAR Round Table. Join us on reflector XRF002A, XRF310A and XRF555A 7:00pm PDT weekly.
wb5eku: Apparently D-STAR ONE, the DStar satellite is in orbit. www.d-star.one/ has information and the preliminary orbital elementary set. I have not heard any more on this satellite. Nor have I heard on anyone hearing it?
wb5eku: If the satellite topic has been covered in a past RT that I missed, I apologize for the double post.
N6HKH: D-STAR ONE Phoenix sat IS an on-going topic unless it falls back to earth or collides with Musk's red Tesla Roadster.
k6fed: The mydv nano is now available at: www.combitronics.nl/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=97
TG9AOR: Hello to all. I will not be able to join tonight's edition, however I have been catching up via podcast(since episode 118), I have aqcuired a TYT MD2017, and wanted to use it with MMDVMHost. I read K6KD's document, but I have not been able to link to BM TG
TG9AOR: or Different XLX reflectors. So I went ahead and only used MMDVMHost with the BMDMR network as its only DMR source. So if I use SoCal, for example, under the channel (TG31066 and the openSpot's frequency) and Key up and TX, I do show on the dashboard, will
TG9AOR: I be able to talk and receive like so? Thanks to all for your comments, and for having the podcasts, it is a wonderful source of information. 73 27 minutes ago x
TG9AOR: and I meant (TG31066 and the DVMega's frequency, not the openSpot, sorry)
K6KD: TG9AOR maybe if you post in detail in the threads, might be better. Similar thread in xrefl.boards.net so check that too. I don't have the MD2017 but maybe someone can jump in in case it is a radio programming issue
K6KD: TG9AOR Constellation not currently on a BrandMeister talk group - but possibly in future. Not SoCal - we have a KingsofDigital talk group, so that is what we would use
VA6KRK: that is a link to the dish antenna.
n7tae: Slot dish antenna: w6nbc.com/articles/20xx-dishslot.pdf
k6fed: YouTube Alexa and ham radio: search.yahoo.com/search?p=alexa+ham+radio&fr=yfp-hrtab-s&fr2=p%3Afp%2Cm%3Asa&.tsrc=yfp-hrtab-s&fp=1&toggle=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8
W6KD: You can't run MMDVM on a DVAP
W6KD: If you want to run MMDVM on a Pi, you'll need either a dvMega or an MMDVM board like the ZUMspot
k6jm: Interesting discussion abt voice control of DV devices. I don't allow a live mike connected to the internet in my house, but I do use a FireTV remote with a PTT switch to talk to Alexa. How long until Open Source developers begin to use DV voice Control?
KK6MYS: you can get Twitter push notifications without an account using an app call Hooks www.gethooksapp.com there is a delay but a small price to pay for not having to sign up with twitter. No account needed to use Hooks.
W6KD: But don't install "Hookups"...that's a somewhat different app... ;-)
