NOTE:  More talkgroups will be added.  These settings will be changing soon to make Bridget private for PNW DMR members as well as others as requested.  If you find that you cannot connect to Bridget, get the latest password and UDP port from the files area in our Yahoo Group or Email for the latest information.

 


UPDATES 

7-31-17:  Bridget 2.0 is out of beta.  Washington 1 has been added to the deck.  "Unicom" is on PNW Local 1 for all openSpot user connections if they wish to chat openSpot to openSpot. 

We will publish everything soon on how to set-up your own portal.  A test run this morning had a working install up in 7 minutes once the VPS was ready, all done by scripting.  Just 3 simple config files to adjust to your own installation and done.  Again Vance, W6SS has been the lead on getting the major work done to get to this point.  We ultimately hope to be able to handle multiple talkgroup decks going to different c-Bridge managers and different c-Bridges, all from the same VPS (keeping costs to a minimum).  The original servers 1 and 2 will likely go away at some point soon.

7-28-17:  Bridget 2.0 is out!!!  The same TG's are available.  This new VPS is utilizing a variation of the setup used on Bridget 1 and 2 and appears to be bullet-proof.  At least at this early point, all is looking good. 

This implementation was created with the great assistance from Vance, W6SS.  He deserves much credit for providing the assistance here as well as the training needed to manage and re-create the installation from a fresh VPS spin-up (Debian 8.9 x64).  We intend to publish the details and make it relatively easy to deploy this project for other c-Bridge owners or repeater owners who want to supplement their own repeater managers with openSpot or other MMDVM clients.  More to follow...

7-10-17:  Server 2 is now on 52032 and normal comms have been restored.

7-6-17:  You may wish to update your openSpot to Firmware v0119.  I had a report this morning that the user had not been able to connect when using v0117.  But on the other hand, I've not had any issue with connections while using v0117.  If you are using older firmware, this may be helpful generally as well.  YOUR MILEAGE MAY VARY!!!

7-2-17:  UDP changed on Server 1 from 62031 to 52031, Server 2 (62032) is unchanged.

6-28-17:  Local 2 works fine for openSpot to openSpot users, had a 4 way tonight.  But still some issues overall, so be prepared, this is still in beta with more fixes and changes to come...

6-27-17:  HEADS-UP:  The UDP Ports on Server 1 will be changing to 52031 and Server 2 may be 52032 soon.  If you can't connect, try these also (once you see the setting have changed below).  This is in part, to address those hams who are not able to connect under any conditions on the higher ports.

6-22-17:  62031 Only:  Experimenting with call complete determination timing.  Default is 500 ms (150-1000), first week was 500, now at 150 ms, will extend out to 1000 over some time.  Comments welcome.


The servers below are still operational but also likely in one-way mode and not useful.  A decision to abandon this setup will be determined later.

Currently only supporting a single timeslot, so even though the PNW talkgroups appear on timeslot 2, simply ignore that and use the single timeslot mode on the openSpot.


When you connect to a server, you appear as if you were using a repeater (named Bridget oddly enough), connected to the PNW c-Bridge.  All the typical timers can be added to the repeater personality exactly like any other PNW repeater.


This talkgroup deck will change as currently we are just running a test bed project on which to base a permanent set of independently hosted talkgroup decks. 

Analog support is in the works as well, no timeframe on implementation. Bluestacks are not supported.

Everything is experimental and subject to random or unforeseen changes, including servers, access, talkgroup deck, passwords and likely more.  It could also simply quit working and require us to take bus down to San Francisco to jiggle a wire in the data center.

 

This particular project has been in the works for months but is based on the great work of multiple folks going back 4 years or so.  All software is open-sourced and available on GitHub by N0MJS.  Also kudos to and for the fine assistance of Corey N3FE, one of the USA Brandmeister admins who has shepherded our efforts at PNW DMR.

The software/packages used are:  dmr_utils, dmrlink and hblink
Currently running on Debian 8.8/64 at DigitalOcean SFO, 1 core.
