Again, I’m not sure I’m asking the question in the best place - but here goes:
I’m running Allstar via a Wouxun handheld and one of G7RPG’s nodes - which comprises an R_Pi 3 (Asterisk, Allmon 2 and Supermon) and a Baofeng BF888. This links via my wifi to the internet, and can be controlled either via dtmf codes from the radio or from Supermon 6.2+.
The software is fully up-to-date (as of yesterday).
When making contacts via Allstar, I’m getting audio drop-out on my transmissions.
I’ve checked the radio - it’s set on low power (so 1W), narrow FM and 12.5kHz channel spacing. Looking at my signals on the Hubnet audio monitor shows peak levels around -10dB, so I’m confident I’m not over-driving anything. I don’t have any problems with received audio from other stations, but having reviewed the recording (Hubnet Listen Again facility) of a conversation I had with HG5CMH the other day, it’s very obvious that my signal has irregular drop-outs losing perhaps a second or more of audio each time.
I’ve listened to a recording of my outgoing signal (using my scanner and its related software) whilst transmitting to the parrot server - the recording from the scanner had no signs of drop-out during my transmission, but the playback from the parrot (also recorded via the scanner) showed one or more drop-outs in my audio as received by the parrot. That said, I’ve tried the parrot again and got no drop-out - so it’s not consistent.
I should note that everything is rather close together here - I’m sitting beside the node, and the wifi hub is maybe 10 feet away - is there a possibility that RF from the radio could be overloading something?
I’d welcome any suggestions for things to try next!
Thanks in anticipation,
