Good Morning, Afternoon, Evening All,
I'm relative new to Allstar though not new to asterisk. (I worked in
telecom back in the day).
Anyway I got my tech license in 2002 cause as a kid I had almost all the
Archer Space Patrol walkie talkies from radio shack. My mother was
divorced and as about a 8 to 11 year old I was able to walk freely to
the local radio shack up the street and around the corner and spend
hours in there listening to the scanners and looking at everything else
they had in there. Buying channel 11 and channel 14 crystals to add to
my two and three channel 200mW walkies. It was a great time.
So after getting licensed in 2002 I played with Yaesu and Kenwood HTs
for a while then setup a echolink -L simplex link and ran that until I
moved from that location.
Recently I picked up a Yaesu FT-65 and started scanning around here in
Houston. The first thing I heard was a local repeater N5XWD that was
24/7 linked to the west coast win system. I heard all this talk of
allstar and d-star and fusion and c4fm and still echolink and irlp was
I quickly bought a kenwood d-star and a yaesu c4fm capable HTs and got
some nodes from Mark after hearing good reports of his products while
listening to the win system.
Next I wanted to think of some way I could get more into it and since
i'm a software developer I thought I'd dive deep into the open source
aspect of it and focus on allstar and learn what I could from app_rpt.c
I searched the internet for the current source for app_rpt.c and was
wondering what the heck is going on here. All I could find was version
0.115 5/12/08 2055 EDT from Jim. It didn't make any sense to me.
I've been thinking the direction this should go is not to rely on a
registration server but move this towards a decentralized registration
system. Like a blockchain. Thoughts?
