This screenshot shows the DStar repeater controller software running on the Windows XP laptop. Note the squelch is always open so the controller can listen for valid data.  The repeater only transmits when valid DStar data is received (from RF or the gateway) or when it beacons every 10minutes.

 This screenshot shows the Timer Control controller software running on the Raspberry PI / DVRPTR_V1 controller.  This sofware is used to automatically connect the repeater to various reflectors during a 24 hour cycle.

Note: The sound card settings need to have the microphone "muted" for correct operation.

These are captures of the repeater controller screens I see.
