vdaaerl - Measure the echo-return loss on Voicetronix FXO telephony modules
The vdaaerl utility tests the echo-return from a telephone line connected to a Voicetronix FXO module, such as those used on the OpenPCI range of cards. It can scan all available impedance values to find the best match for a particular line. It will wait for an incoming call on the port under test. The calling handset should have the microphone well muted for the duration of the test. A series of tones will be played down the line to determine the ERL in several parts of the audio spectrum. You should avoid creating any other noise on the line while this test is running, or the results may be skewed. If no --impedance is specified, and the --scan option is not used, then the default impedance value (based on the port's country selection) will be used.
The following options are available: --help, -? Show summary of options. --card number Explicitly select the card to test. Default is card 0. --port number Explicitly select the port to test. Default is port 0 of the card being tested. --impedance number Test a particular impedance setting [0 - 15]. --scan Test all available impedances. --playgain db Set the hardware play gain. Values may range from -12.0 to 12.0. --recgain db Set the hardware record gain. Values may range from -12.0 to 12.0.
