Lets start out with my setup so this might not work for you. My repeater is a Bridgecom BCR-40DU, I purchased the URIx, 25 pin cable, and Micro SD from the myGMRS store. Make sure your not using a Raspberry Pi 4, trust me it doesn't work. I ended up getting a Raspberry Pi 3B+. After installing the micro sd card into the pi make sure you connect an ethernet cable, log in, change password like instructed, then set up wifi if you want by following instructions in the quick start guide that came with the micro sd card, don't forget to log into your router and set up port forwarding. Your gonna wanna go into your simpleusb.conf file and change a few things. sudo nano /etc/asterisk/simpleusb.conf carrierfrom = usbinvert ; no,usb,usbinvert ; no - no carrier detection at all ; usb - from the COR line on the USB sound fob (Active high) ; usbinvert - from the inverted COR line on the USB sound fob (Active low) ctcssfrom = usb ; no,usb,usbinvert ; no - CTCSS decoding, system will be carrier squelch ; usb - CTCSS decoding using input from USB sound fob (Active high) ; usbinvert - from the inverted CTCSS line on the USB sound fob (Active low) duplex = 1 ; Duplex 0,1 ; 0 - half duplex ; 1 - full duplex When your done making the changes hit ctrl + o followed by enter then ctrl + x followed by enter. I wasn't able to use DTMF tones to connect to different nodes so I found a command in one of the forum pages to connect through ssh. sudo asterisk -rx "rpt fun 24219 *3172" 24219 is my node so insert your node number, *3172 will connect me to node 172, *3xxxxx will connect you to your node of choice, xxxxx being the node number. If your gonna use the Pi as your repeater controller then your gonna have to modify your rpt.conf file. sudo nano /etc/asterisk/rpt.conf hangtime = 1000 ; squelch tail hang time (in ms) (optional, default 5 seconds, 5000 ms) althangtime = 2000 ; longer squelch tail totime = 180000 ; transmit time-out time (in ms) (optional, default 3 minutes 180000 ms) idrecording = |ixxxxxxx ; cording or morse string see http://ohnosec.org/drupal/node/87 ;idtalkover = |ixxxxxxx ; Talkover ID (optional) default is none see http://ohnosec.org/drupal/node/129 ; See Telemetry section Example: idrecording = rpt/nodenames/24219 idtime = 900000 When your done making the changes hit ctrl + o followed by enter then ctrl + x followed by enter. Change the xxxxxxx to your callsign make sure you keep the |i or it won't identify. After your done making all the changes make sure to restart asterisk by using: sudo service asterisk restart These are all the changes I did to make everything work with my system. Once I get voice ID working I'll do an update. I hope this helps someone. It took me quite a few days of playing around trying to figure this out. Joe WROE856
I'm setting up my node on the GMRS Network and I'm having a little difficulty. I have a Bridgecom BCR 40DU repeater. I know that I have connected everything correctly because my node shows up on the GMRS map and I'm able to connect to other nodes. I can hear traffic from other nodes and it transmits through my repeater. The issues I'm having is I cannot transmit. When I try transmitting, I notice the TX light doesn't illuminate on the URIx. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you Tim WROE916 BCR-40U_BCR-50V_BCR-220_Owner_s_Manual_Ver_1.7.pdf URIx Data Sheet.pdf
Configuring your Router In order for your node to accept incoming link connections, You will need to forward a port in your router so that incoming connections can be passed to your node on your network. If you connect to your router's administration page you will find a section called port forwarding or virtual servers. Here, you can forward UDP connection on port 4569 to the same port 4569 on the Pi's IP address Consult your router's manual for how to set this up. Failure to configure this properly will cause only outgoing connections to work and potentially other issues. TYPE: UDP I check it out in my setting list was NO UDP..................

Hello all, I am not new to GMRS but am new to linking system. I was wondering if there is anyone out there that can build me a node for the Mygmrs link system or give me links to the parts I can order and try to put it together myself. Been following the node situation for a bit but never got around to actually doing it. Was looking at the plug and play from the GMRS linked network but his waiting list is full and I don’t know how to build a node. Thanks! WREI881
