Massive Home Lab refresh happened this week.. Took some old servers out, put newer ones in (finally upgraded some old 32 bit boxes to 64 bit boxes), moved services around and consolidated stuff in docker. Freed up some pi's for other projects. It was a good week.Finally have some solid infrastructure in place to really experiment and tinker with now...
qrzlogger (https://github.com/exitnode/qrzlogger) is now installable via pip:
# python3 -m pip install qrzlogger
All this Python packaging is new to me so I hope it works.
Question: March last year, a new version of the control software for the DV4mini was released, along with firmware, allowing converting the mini to a MMDVM based hotspot. Anyone played with this yetand/or gotten it to work on an Ubuntu 21.04 system? I am running Kubutnu 21.04. I have updated the firmware but dv_serial keeps crashing on Linux. I installed wine and mono and 64 bit C++ framework, tried giving ttyACM0 777 privledges and ran everything as sudo, but it still keeps crashing.
Work on the newest version of APRSnotify is progressing. I am working on one of the last big pieces. The new version is going to have some new features with sending to Mastodon and others. Hopefully I will be ready for release soon. In the mean time, if you want to see an example of it working, check out firstname.lastname@example.org or @n8acl_aprs on twitter. The current version is at https://github.com/n8acl/aprsnotify, but with the new version coming, I would wait to install it.
HI Kevin! Yes I have been building those kind bridges for a while. At one point I was the admin for a system that had everything but d-star connected to it. It was pretty cool. Sadly that group folded, but I still playing with that stuff. I have been working on a bridge for one of my local clubs in fact. We have a DMR to allstar bridge right now, but will hopefully be adding more as time permits.
HI All, Jeff, N8ACL here. Been licensed since 2001. By day I am a database developer and by night I am a dad. I am mostly now into digital voice modes like DMR, and VOIP modes like Allstar. I also do a little development on the side for fun. I have a python app I created called APRSNotfiy that posts your APRS packets to Social Media (soon to include Mastodon). Just gotta finish setting up my profile now :) #introduction
