New Beta version 2022 11 18

Post by VK3KYY » Thu Nov 17, 2022 9:00 pm

A new Beta is available

This version implements Talker Alias Position transmission , also know as In Call GPS.

https://opengd77.com/downloads/GD77/264 ... c2ea2f4fb8

https://opengd77.com/downloads/GD77/Latest

Note.

Not all networks support Talker Alias transmission.

DMR MARC does not support this, and AFIK never well. Do not enable TA Tx if you use a DMR MARC network.


Brandmeister network supports "In Call GPS"

Log into your Brandmeister account and go to the SelfCare section

https://brandmeister.network/?page=selfcare

Select radio Brand as ETSI, or Motorola or Hytera

This will then allow the "In Call GPS" option to be enabled

Save these settings


On the radio..

Enter your location into the Radio Info screen
Then enable TA Tx . Options -> Radio Options -> TA Tx:On


Transmit for server seconds.

Check on https://aprs.fi to see if your position has been reported

Important
Currently not all Brandmeister servers handle negative values of Latitude and Longitude

If your position is not being reported on https://aprs.fi, change to one of the BM servers running the latest software update.

See https://brandmeister.network/?page=masters



Edit.
Currently the location can on be entered to 3 decimal places of accuracy, which is an approximate accuracy of 100m

Talker Alias position, data precision is approximately accurate to 5 decimal places of accuracy (around 1m). So when I get time I need to change the user interface and position storage to use better resolution

Yes my callsign is PU4BLA
My name is Gustavo Guilherme Carlo.
The username is wrong, the correct one would be gustavo carlo and not gustavo carlos.

Thanks

AFAIK this will make anyone using multiple radios not not work anymore, or am I wrong? Like Anytone 878 I've always heard to use "Chinese Radio", GD-77 was also on the "Chinese Radios" list.

Any idea if that will make other radios no longer work (for SMS I assume)

I worded that terribly, what I meant was pretty sure that most "chinese radios" need "Chinese Radio" set there or SMS doesn't work correctly, so if you use a GD77 and an 878 or other radio, it'd affect one of the radios. I'm not 100% sure but I was thinking that's what the "Brand" selection there does (SMS format, available features, etc)

I updated the installation instructions

Setting radio type to Motorola , or Hytera or ETSI all work fine.

So if you have other radios which send Motorola or Hytera format SMS messages, then you can leave the Brand set as Motorola.
