    I installed the new image and like a dummy did not keep any of my .conf files. I have been trying to configure for Skylers NanoStar node using his instructions but have been unsuccessful. The unit will ID with my call sign and when I issue the *70 command it gives me a “bedelbeep” but no nice lady talking. Same thing if I try *722. *721 does force a CW ID. Thoughs?

    • Jim,
      It sounds like your usbradio.conf file needs to be fixed.
      If you are running with the Baofeng generating CTCSS, you need to set txmixa to voice.
      Example: txmixa = voice
      Txmixb should be set to no.
      Also, carrierfrom should be set to usb, and ctcssfrom should be set to no.
      After making changes, type:
      service asterisk restart
      If the sound is too bassy, then you will need to set rxdemod to speaker.
      After configuring usbradio.conf, you need to set levels in
      If you have trouble, send me an email at
      with your phone number, and we can set it up together.
