Re: Not Transmitting or Not Being Heard

Tyrbiter thank you, that indeed was causing the truncation on echo. Count 1 - 3 come back clear and correct.

Re: Not Transmitting or Not Being Heard

Using the echo function my calls show up in the call log. However the test does not play back properly. If I count 1 to 7 the play back starts at 5. I have tried leaving a pause (different lengths) before speaking, but the play back always starts at 5.

RF Interference

I thought I would mention this in case it is useful to someone else. When I first got my OS2 I had some difficulty in programming the radio to control the openspot. Thanks to help given on this board I resolve all but one issue. I could not get the radio to change reflectors/repeaters by keying the ...

Re: Control OpenSpot 2 with D-Star Radio

cq2meters apologies for the delay in replying I was out of town on business. That does make sense and throws further light on what I was doing wrong. I have the simplex mode working now but I had the methods mixed together and originally was only using just simplex. I'll give the DR mode a try. Than...

Control OpenSpot 2 with D-Star Radio

I received my OpenSpot 2 yesterday and have it set up and working OK using the web interface. I can’t seem to connect or control it sending commands from my Icom 5100. Prior to getting the OpenSpot I used a DVAP and that connects to repeaters or reflectors using the radio. The same settings do not s...
