Analogue To Digital Crossmode
The Allstar controlled FM analogue side of GB3RF has cross-mode analogue to digital transcoding to several digital modes.
This means you can use your personal digital hotspot or local digital repeater/gateway to connect to the analogue FM side of GB3RF
XLX977 module D reflector provides connections for Dstar, DMR and Fusion.
Dstar - Reflector is XLX977-D
Fusion - Reflector is XLX977-D you can't select module D in Pi-Star but the reflector will automatically connect you to the Fusion module if you select YSF71776 - XLX977 - GB3RFNWRGroup as the reflector in your YSF Link Manager.
DMR - XLX Master is XLX_977 Module D TG6. In Pi-Star configuration set your DMR Master to DMRGateway, XLX Master to XLX_977, XLX Startup Module to D, XLX Master Enabled and use TG6
Also for DMR users we have a link to Brandmeister DMR TG 235175, you can use TG 235175 while your hotspot is connected to a Brandmeister server to connect to our multimode XLX server and our analogue repeater.
Transcoding between DStar, DMR and Fusion is done by the XLX reflector using 2 DVMEGA DVstick33. These contain AMBE-3003™ vocoders giving us 6 transcoding channels. Analogue Allstar is transcoded to Fusion and linked to XLX977-D using a DVMEGA DVstick 30 with contains an AMBE-3000™ vocoder. This combination of hardware and software, we believe, gives the best audio quality and low lag times.
The XLX977 reflector dashboard can be found here to see current connections.
The M17-NWR reflector provides connections for M17 which is a new digital radio protocol in development as an alternative to those currently available and is being developed by amateurs.
Information about M17 can be found here.
