  • KF5NXR-John : Night yall! Great net
  • K9EQ-Chris : There's a reason for that and it typically means your drive is crap. Or at least not very fast. It does small writes which can take a long time if the drives block size is large.
  • KC9IL-Warren : Running ValiDrive now on a 1GB jump drive. PAINFULLY slow.

  • KF5NXR-John : @KD9OZM I think they are doing this as a 1st Monday type thing
  • N0PXT-Shane : We are doing it for the first Monday of the month.
  • KD9OZM : Good evening, I tuned into the net late this evening and noticed general check ins. Is this a new format from the normal "traffic only" check ins?

  • KC9IL-Warren : 60 meters is a nice band. We want to keep the 100 watt limit.
  • KC9IL-Warren : Odis, thanks!
  • W4IOD-Odis : Warren, if you have time this may be of interest to you or not. https://youtu.be/9fR0C_wak-s?si=vVNAvLAv7p5u2BhF
  • KC9IL-Warren : I'll just have to play with it some more. Maybe it will grow on me. Thanks Colt!
  • N1RIP-Colt : Pi-zero 2 w* correction
  • N1RIP-Colt : Could have been grade/speed/quality of SD card. Card could be degrading as well @ KC9IL-Warren. My W0CHP install runs extremely fast on Pi 4 (4gb)
  • KC9IL-Warren : Chris, you make a good point. Here we are complaining about free software. Hi Hi
  • K9EQ-Chris : Well, Pistar doesn't have much documentation either. These are hobby projects so you can't expect too much. A lot can be learned by looking at the code.
  • KC9IL-Warren : Pi-Star just flies on my Pi-4. Very snappy. I did not even try on the Pi-0.
  • W4IOD-Odis : Warren with all things new there seems to be some growing pains. https://wpsd-docs.w0chp.net/
  • W4IOD-Odis : Warren I experienced that on the pi zero but not on the pi 3B+
  • KC9IL-Warren : The online documentation is lacking, in that it assumes you know a bunch of stuff already. Not nearly as comprehensive as the "Playing with Pi-Star" document.
  • KC9IL-Warren : Odis, the W0CHP version took about 50% longer to do most tasks. Seems a bit clunky.
  • KF5NXR - John : Interesting I didn't realize that it could be purchased separately as an accessory. I will need find out how to order that. Thanks for the info!
  • K9EQ-Chris : There are probably a bunch of DR2-X owners who are not using their LAN cards.
  • KK4FWU-Phil : disconnected myself
  • K9EQ-Chris : Although you might want to buy a used one. When purchased with a repeater, they're $200. If purchased as an accessory, I believe it's $350.
  • K9EQ-Chris : You can order the LAN card from Yaesu and you'd install it.
  • KF5NXR - John : I dont have a radio this evening to transmit into the net so I figured I would asked you through this chat.
  • KF5NXR - John : Odis, any idea if Yeasu would update a DR-2X that needs a Lan Card or where one could get a Lan Card to update one?
  • W4IOD-Odis : Most welcome
  • KF5NXR - John : Thank Odis!

  • W4IOD-Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK
  • KF5NXR - John : Good to know! Our local repeater has both YSF and FCS paths to them, but those trying to come in via FCS over the past couple of weeks have had issues. We might need to make the same decision about pulling the FCS path.
  • W4IOD-Odis : YSF has the advantage over FCS because the reflectors are not centrally located like FCS. MNWIS used to be connected to an FCS reflector but it was dropped in favor of the YSF.
  • KF5NXR - John : Speaking of YSF, it seems that FCS has been on the struggle bus the past couple of weeks, especially FCS server 3 based out of Canada.
  • KF5NXR - John : Roger roger Odis!
  • W4IOD-Odis : Your right the computer itself does not care
  • W4IOD-Odis : John, I have to look at the BIG picture there are more connected on the YSF side right now than there are WiresX connection so that's why I mentioned that last week.
  • KF5NXR - John : Completely agree Odis as far as your WiFi nic card on your computer, however, the application on your computer doesn't care nor know what freq your wifi is connected at, is what I commenting at.
  • W4IOD-Odis : BTW John looking at your comment from last week on wifi....yes it will make a difference on hotspots as most operate on 2.4G ONLY so if your trying to connect to a YSF reflector that could be an issue.
  • W4IOD-Odis : HowDEE John
  • KF5NXR - John : Good Evening from Texas!
  • W4IOD-Odis : Good evening all 9/18/2023
  • W4IOD-Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK
  • KF5NXR - John : Short of the operating freq of your wifi card on your laptop.
  • KF5NXR - John : The freq of your wifi shouldn't have anything to do with the programs on your laptop. ie Wire X's etc.
  • K9EQ-Chris : Hello
  • W4IOD-Odis : Hello John

  • W4IOD-Odis : Everyone have a good evening and stay safe 73 de W4IOD SK
  • K9EQ-Chris : Yes, they could be linked together using IMRS. In your case you would probably run a pair of 5.8 GHz TCP/IP radios pointed at each other.
  • Steve K3FZT : That's interesting. I didn't know that. We've just replaced two old DR-1X repeaters with DR-2X w/network cards. No internet at these hospital "attic" locations. First we have to replace one of the duplexers, measured a 3+ db loss through it!
  • K9EQ-Chris : The function is also used by IMRS to select "groups" of repeaters. There are about four distinct things that are called "Group Mode".
  • K9EQ-Chris : Most people leave the Tx Encode set to 00 which is the wildcard. Some repeaters/nodes require a non-zero value for access. Likewise the Rx value is similar to CTCSS decode.
  • Steve K3FZT : Yes. That's how I've used it.
  • K9EQ-Chris : That's a bit different. I believe that's done by changing the Tx Encode value. It isn't strictly necessary to set a value to use GM.
  • Steve K3FZT : GM can also be used w/XLX Reflectors to move among modules of the Reflector. See xlx303 Colorado Digital Network for an example.
  • W4IOD-Odis : FTM 500DR information can be found at https://www.yaesu.com/indexVS.cfm?cmd=DisplayProducts&ProdCatID=249&encProdID=0308259EFC6C36C21D8DCDB78ECBBDCA&DivisionID=65&isArchived=0
