Initiated via DTMF - "Auto group call 4000 before shortcut call"

Post by LA9ULA » Fri Oct 25, 2019 12:22 pm

I might not have fully understood how to best operate a Yaesu FT3d in crossmode to DMR, but it seems to me that a having a "Auto group call 4000 before shortcut call" initiated via DTMF would be nice, if possible? Like the option in the "Quick Call" web menu.

I now I can unlink using #4000, and then link a new dynamic TG using #XXX, but would it be possible to send a short DTMF code that automates the process? Makes the OS2 send the #4000 first and then connects to the new dynamic TG in one go?

Am I making any sense?

I joined this group to make exactly the same request. I had been looking for this facility for ages and looked through the whole of the General discussion. Forgot to look in 'requests' :roll:
This would certainly be welcome. I use an FT400xdr in the car and have to send a #4000 (using up a DTMF slot) before linking to another talkgroup on Brandmeister. I had tried using #4000 #4015 in the same DTMF slot but that did not seem to work. It would be good to have a tick box to automatically send a #4000 before any #number like it does for the web based 'Quickcall'.

Thanks for a brilliant piece of kit and amazing web support too.
