NAME

remotetrx - The SvxLink remote transceiver application  

SYNOPSIS

remotetrx [--help] [--daemon] [--logfile=log file] [--config=configuration file] [--pidfile=pid file] [--runasuser=user name]  

DESCRIPTION

remotetrx is the SvxLink remote transceiver application. It is used to connect to a receiver and/or transmitter and then the main SvxLink server can connect to the remote transceiver server via TCP/IP to get audio to/from it. It is also possible to link via RF instead of via TCP/IP. An example use of the latter would be if the repeater is placed in a remote location where there is no network. Then networked remote receivers can be linked up to the repeater via RF from a link site where network is available. The setup is pretty straight forward. The setup of a receiver or transmitter is done in the same way as in the SvxLink server so use the svxlink.conf(5) manual page as a reference for that. The remotetrx specific configuration is described in the remotetrx.conf(5) manual page. On the SvxLink server side you need to configure a networked receiver/transmitter. That is described in the svxlink.conf(5) manual page in the Networked Receiver/Transmitter Section. If using multiple receivers you also want to configure a voter and make proper calibration of the signal level detector on each receiver.
