Yes, the announcement has been fixed today.

May we ask what URCALL, RPTR1, RPTR2 settings do you use when you talk on the local repeater with openSPOT? Maybe this will help Todd.

Im using ID5100 and ID-51 in DR mode
Your :CQCQCQ
RPT1: IK8JHL B
RPT2: IK8JHL G
but RPT1 RPT2 its not important for connect Openspot , also if i change with other call work the same

This is the streaming of IR8UAF direct connect
022317 at 21:47:07:START from g2: cntr=58 d4, streamID=87,172, flags=00:00:00, my=IK8JHL P, sfx=ID51, ur=CQCQCQ , rpt1=IR8UAF B, rpt2=IK8JHL H, 58 bytes fromIP=37.99.224.203

This is streaming of WA7FW direct connect (i have tryed to call but for now no answer)
022317 at 21:48:53:START from g2: cntr=01 46, streamID=22,167, flags=00:00:00, my=IK8JHL P, sfx=ID51, ur=CQCQCQ , rpt1=WA7FW B, rpt2=IK8JHL H, 58 bytes fromIP=146.129.247.242

I am using both an Icom ID-51 and a ID-7100 in DR mode.

I use URCALL: CQCQCQ and when using the DVAP (or openSpot) RPT1 and RPT2 are not used as IK8JHL mentioned.

I've seen several new callsigns connected to the WA7FW B node this morning but no one has transmitted through the repeater. I think that everyone is experiencing the same issue I'm having.

As a matter of fact, IK8JHL is connected right now but is not coming through the repeater.

Success!

Francesco IK8JHL figured it out. We ended up speaking to each other through the repeater and found the solution.

Our connector configuration screens were the same but my D-Star user registration did not have a Module other than blank. I did not have an E or H Module registered to my callsign. When I changed the openSpot connector to use "space" as a module it started working perfectly!

So the real solution was for me to register several modules on the D-Star master registration site and that way I can use any of those module letters as my Local Module in the Custom Connector.

Awesome work and thanks to Francesco for all of his help.

Also thanks Norbert for fixing the openSpot connector announcement so that it doesn't stop after the first two letters.

Thanks again everyone!

With the new Beta 106 I still can't stay connected to my local repeater. I try to key the repeater and within 30 seconds I get disconnected then reconnected. I don't have this problem with the reflectors, only the gateways. I also tried the WA7FW gateway proven to work for some but didn't for me.

Please try changing openSPOT's local module to space, as mentioned in the previous posts. Also please verify your D-STAR gateway registration.
