Change Fusion Reflector from the FT-70DR

I read in the manual that I need to enter * followed by the 5-digital reflector ID number to change from one Reflector to the next. If I'm already connected to a YSF reflector via the hotspot, then how do I make the change using the radio? Do I need to disconnect from the reflector on the hotspot, t...

WiFi Password Lengths

I had a rather long WiFi password for security reasons on my home router. The OpenSpot2 was working great with that until the latest firmware upgrade. I ended up dropping the character length to 12 alpha-numeric characters, and now it connects like it used to. Is there something in the firmware whic...

Re: Required settings for FT70DR

Apparently, I don't have to change a thing in the hotspot settings, but simply add my callsign to the radio settings. It seems to work like a charm and the other stations I've talked to said the same thing.

Required settings for FT70DR

I have a new FT-70DR. I want to be able to use it with the OpenSpot 2 for both DMR and Fusion. My DMR radios are programmed with my DMR ID and work great with the hotspot. Do I need to program the Fusion Radio with the same ID. What settings do I need to set? The QuickSetup works for listening to DM...

Re: Using DMR on Fusion

I did a “quick setup” to get back into the right mode. Now on my phone, with the “advanced mode” enabled, I can’t seem to locate where to make private calls. Can you please point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Using DMR on Fusion

I may be wrong in my configuration, but following the manual, when I want to use my DMR Radio on the Fusion network, I need to change the connector type from “Homebrew” to “YSFReflector”. The modem is still set as DMR for my radio. I selected a nearby Fusion to connect to, and I can key up without a...

Crossbanding to other Reflectors

This morning I figured out how to crossband from DMR to Fusion and had a conversation with a gentleman on a local reflector. When I use the "quick setup" feature, choose DMR radio, and then NXDN, it will connect to a server, but do not hear any audio. I see the different hams talking on the status w...

Re: View Call and Name on Radio

When I first started in DMR, I operated on a local repeater system in Michigan whose backbone was DMR-MARC. They had their own ID system that I could download from and load into the radio. The radio only accepts 1,000 contacts I believe, so once DMR-MARC shut down, the local repeater owner cut ties ...

View Call and Name on Radio

I have a Motorola XPR6550 DMR Radio. I have been able to talk on and monitor different talk groups, but I have to use my phone to see the name and call signs of the people talking. How can I get that information to display on the radio? Several YouTube videos show that information scrolling across t...
