Thanks Dana.  Dstar in CT and the surrounding states would not be the same without you!

The router has failed at the site. Therefore the system will be in standalone mode until the router can be replaced. No ETA for replacement at this time.

I have to agree with Fran I tried having dmr and dstar both running on my hotspot and it creates a headache especially if both networks are active

First, you won't be happy using both on the same hotspot. To answer your question, it will only send out on the of the radio you are using.

It is hard to explaining why you won't like using both on the same hotspot.Let's say for now that the two mode will bump heads and drive you crazy if there are conversations going on in DMR and DSTAR. That is why most people use two hotspots, one for each mode.

I’ve just bought a Zumspot (so tiny!) running PiStar. I plan to use this in the vehicle. I see on the dashboard that it supports both DMR and DStar concurrently. So I’m wondering if I have a DMR radio and D-Star radio and they’re both tuned at the same time to the Zumspot frequency, what happens when the zumspot transmits? Do the digital radios squelch anything that’s not decoded? 

Thanks,

Re: Multiple Zumspots on DStar #dstar

The real issue with 2 hotspots comes if you run the 2 on the same frequency. One hotspot will be picked up by the second and a ping pong effect occurs on the reflector. Kind of funny when it happens!

Re: Multiple Zumspots on DStar #dstar

 

As you said the key is "LINKED". Doesn't matter what the radio has. If you use the same exact call to link two hotspots to the reflector, the reflector's dashboard starts getting screwed up and doesn't know which entry to update. Bob and I have both run into this ourselves. The traffic in and out seems to be ok, as far as we know, but the info on the reflector itself gets screwy. Without know ing what els e could be happening, it always safe to err on the side of caution that to tempt the D-STAR gods.

Re: Multiple Zumspots on DStar #dstar

Jess Girard
 

Hi Dan:

I run multiple Zumspots for DStar and DMR. I leave one running in the office all the time...mostly because I forget to unplug it... then I use one in the car and occasionally one in the house, too.  I've never had a problem with them unless they are in RF range of one another which can result in a feedback loop or, if they're on different reflectors, traffic from REFxxx might get into reflector REFyyy, which is a big "no-no" on REF reflectors... but perfectly okay, from what I've heard, on X reflectors.

If you want to be super careful you can name one Zumspot K1DJKB B and other K1DJB D... but you may have to add channels to the rig. If you call them both K1DJB   B (since I assume you'll be on 70cm)  there won't be an issue since that's what I do rather than adding extra memory channels to my HT's.

Hope this helps!

The W1KK gateway is offline for some reason and will be that way until someone can get up there to find out what is wrong.

Great news!!

Now if I can possibly understand why my Pi-Star hotspots don't want to work half the time it would be very welcome. Saturday, for example, I connected to REF20A and started to chat with Dave N1TKO. After one or two transmissions the Zumspot became dear, hearing neither my rig nor traffic on 20A. So I woke it up again and connected to REF 69C... same nonsense.  I happened to have a Pi3 with a dvMega installed; that worked. Then a couple of hours later the Pi3 started doing the same. This is gonna drive me nuts. It would be so, so nice if Westchester county had a working D-Star repeater! Or a non-dead-end DMR repeater for that matter.  CT seems years ahead of Westchester. I'd seriously thought of joining the local club here but not until they listen to members' complaints about lack of digital coverage.
