- Update 1/10/2022:
- After much testing, I have merged full M17 and YSF DG-ID capability into the
masterbranch, and all other branches.
I have successfully (I think) implemented both M17 mode and YSF’s DG-ID Gateway
W0CHP-PiStar-Dash (“WPSD”). I may regret this forever, but I could
use help from testers, before I attempt to merge the functionality into the
master WPSD branch.
Now, before you get all excited to help out and test, some non-negotiable rules:
If you will be filing issue/bug reports, you had better not be asking for support. You’ll be very sorry. This is for contributors.
- Please indicate the correct branch in your issue: e.g.
Run the following command your hot spot terminal:
curl -Ls https://w0chp.net/WPSD-Install | sudo env NO_SELF_UPDATE=1 env W0CHP_DASH_BRANCH=DG-ID_M17 bash -s -- -id
DG-ID support was custom-coded by yours truly,
W0CHP. It even displays the current DG-ID set/link status.
As far as M17 support, I used some great integration code from the very talented Alessio Caiazza
IU5BON. Alessio had recently issued a PR in Andy’s official Pi-Star branch – so I used much of the code from that PR. However…
I added some enhancements: Actual M17 connection monitoring for the status panel; a “quick editor” for the M17Gateway configuration; and a few more features and tweaks, such as an “M17 Manager” – to manage your M17 connections on-the-fly.
