What exactly do you need to engage the node tx for… what is the end game ?
Perhaps if we know that we can provide a better solution.
Is it a secret ? I can’t help if it is.
A solution is a solution.
It’s not complicated and it’s easy and does not involve complications from folks who do not think the implications of actions though for the integrity of the system.
I consider this solved unless you can tell me the end game of the need to engage the TX in a way that the solution does not fit.
app_rpt… the software we are actually running is and always has been a work-around project for asterisk. We twist the rules of asterisk to do what we need to do. Each radio node is a work-around to a phone extension, with rules and definite parms. Pure and simple.
I probably have done more to twist those same rules myself of both asterisk and app_rpt than most over the years to suite my purpose and never did I complain about how it was put together. It is a accepted fact with me.
You are basically working with open source beta on a continuous basis. If you are not willing to put in some work to get what you want, don’t expect others to write code for you. They have already shared code to get you to this point. The rest is up to you.
