Having 2 nodes on one pi

Now that there is substantially more horsepower available to us with the Raspberry Pi 2, it gives us the option of running multiple nodes on a single Pi. This handy for example, to run 2 repeaters, or one node and a Hub.

In this example, the node number we are using is 1350, and the new Node will be 1351

  1. Edit rpt.conf and duplicate everything between 1350 and functions (abbreviated file):
    [1350]                                  ; Change this to your assigned node number
    
    rxchannel = Radio/usb                   ; Rx audio/signalling channel
    .
    .
    .
    duplex=0                                ; 0 for repeater gateway (use in conjunction with linktolink)
                                            ; 1 for simplex frequency,
                                            ; 2 as a repeater (not connected to one)
    ;linktolink=1                           ; set to 1 when used as a link full duplex repeater. (no tails,ids etc).
    
    [functions]
    .
    .
    .
    
    So that is looks like:
    [1350]                                  ; Change this to your assigned node number
    
    rxchannel = Radio/usb                   ; Rx audio/signalling channel
    .
    .
    .
    duplex=0                                ; 0 for repeater gateway (use in conjunction with linktolink)
                                            ; 1 for simplex frequency,
                                            ; 2 as a repeater (not connected to one)
    ;linktolink=1                           ; set to 1 when used as a link full duplex repeater. (no tails,ids etc).
    
    [1351]                                  ; Change this to your assigned node number
    
    rxchannel = Radio/usb                   ; Rx audio/signalling channel
    .
    .
    .
    duplex=0                                ; 0 for repeater gateway (use in conjunction with linktolink)
                                            ; 1 for simplex frequency,
                                            ; 2 as a repeater (not connected to one)
    ;linktolink=1                           ; set to 1 when used as a link full duplex repeater. (no tails,ids etc).
    
    [functions]
    .
    .
    .
    
  2. Down the bottom of the file under nodes, you will find a line:
    1350 = radio@127.0.0.1/1351,NONE
    
    Add 1351 to that , keeping the spacing correct so the Main Setup Menu can change it:
    1350 = radio@127.0.0.1/1350,NONE
    1351 = radio@127.0.0.1/1351,NONE
    
  3. Now we need to edit extensions.conf. Find the radio-secure section. This section will have one of two formats depending how long ago vksetup

was run:

[radio-secure]
exten => 1350,1,rpt,1350
or
exten => ${NODE},1,rpt,${NODE}
Whatever is there needs to be changed to read:
exten => 1350,1,rpt,1350
exten => 1351,1,rpt,1351

  1. Exit and save and restart the Node with "service asterisk stop". Any further changes can be made with the Main Setup Menu.
