Re: Recent versions of firmware will be removed

I think Andrew has got the spirit of open source software and collaboration-- and licensing, as far as GPL goes-- in the right interpretation. It's about freedom as in free speech (freedom to distribute, build, enjoy) and not necessarily freedom as in free beer.

Re: OpenGD77 CPS download location changed

I used qdmr to read the codeplug from my GD77 running OpenGD77. I haven't tried uploading it yet, as I have no changes to make, but it looks promising. I haven't yet ascertained whether there are significant differences with respect to the OpenGD77 CPS, but it might be worth a try. https://dm3mat.d...

Re: Recent versions of firmware will be removed

Now this project will be sold commercially. I'm certainly not going to work for free on this project while some companies make money by selling their "modified" version e.g. with encryption. I have no incentive to add any new features to give away. I doubt you will find that anyone will now spend a...

Re: Recent versions of firmware will be removed

I love openGD77 and how it has changed the paradigm for DMR for many radio amateurs. I made a few contributions but not technical--mostly just in the documentation, which needed some improvements at some point in late 2019--so just minimal. However, I also realize that as a community we must respect...

Re: aprs how to use

Hello. APRS on DMR mostly relates to 2 things: 1. Position beaconing -- this is taken care of by the APRS settings on BrandMeister selfcare. You can then define GPS coordinates on your hotspot via MMDVM.ini or through pi-star dashboard. Some radios that have GPS will pass the location information fr...

Re: Droid-Star open development

Hi Doug, Are you aware of the concerns raised by some BM admins about Droidstar and other smartphone apps in general? It's in German, but I used Google Translate: http://bm262.de/dmr-programme-fuer-handy-und-pc-wilde-links/ . I just recently became aware of this, btw. My name is Doug Mclain. I live ...

Re: On "Profiteering" and Free Software

I was supposed this reply to this thread, but somehow it went somewhere else: Last week, I helped a fellow ham program channels on his openDM1801 radio (plus updating the firmware) and TYT MD390. We spent around 4 hours, since programming talkgroups on the TYT was a big headache--and that's using t...

Re: Droid-Star open development

If there will be issues due to AMBE codec IP, then a lot of DMR-YSF bridges should also be impacted, since many use the md-380 emulation server-side.
