Openspot broadcasting D-Star call sign

Hello

I am wondering if there is a way to keep my openspot (version 1) from broadcasting my call sign every few minutes.
I am using an Icom ID-5100a and have turned the display TX call sign option off yet my openspot still sends my call sign.

I ask because sometimes I like to listen to NETS but not participate. But my openspot sends my call sign so everyone knows I'm listening and asks me to check in.

Also does this mean that even when my radio is turned off and the openspot is on it is still sending out my call sign on the last reflector I was on?

Any insights or thoughts you have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The openSPOT does not send your callsign, it does not have that functionality. Probably your radio does it. Check your radio's settings. If your radio does it then you'll see the call in the call log on the Status page.
