I do not know if the mailing list will pass attachments but attached is the
documentation for the Advance Repeater system FOB.


You are correct that there are pots to adjust for the audio and I will try
that.  The documentation has an overview, circuit board layout and


If you do not get the attachment, give me an email address and I will email
it to you.

 Thanks.  I am not familiar with that interface but in reviewing the web
page it looks like there are pots for hardware level settings on the
interface. This would effect the SW levels set in Allstar. I would think the
best thing t do would be to leave the Allstar levels set at the 500/500
default and adjust the HW pots for the proper level. Is that possible?

I see you have both carrierfrom and ctcssfrom turned on. I reviewed the
instructions and they only refer to echolink which is a windows only program
and they talk about a windows setup.  Was there specific instructions for
Allstar? It looks like they use VOX for PTT but I am not clear on how they
get COS.

The RX setting level also depends on where you set the volume dial.

So far I have had positive comments about the configuration and
documentation on version 1.2.1 but as with anything it can always be
improved.  If you have any comments on the documentation or initial
configuration on 1.2.1 please forward them to me. Your input will certainly
be considered and will help to improve future releases.

I would also like to start a radio database that will help with an automated
simpleusb.conf setup on the next release. In most cases the only thing that
changes in simpleusb is the "carrierfrom" setting depending on the phase of
your node radios COS signal. We know about Alinco radios but not many
others. If you can forward the make and model of your radio and any changes
you make to simpleusb.conf it would be helpful. Also your rx and txa levels
for that radio and if it is connected to a standard port on the radio or is
a custom modification.

Some radios that are programmable, like Motorola's, and can have the COS
phase set either way.
