Thank-you for your response. That did not work but I was wondering
what was to go into that field above the check box ?

Your DMR ID is invalid, it has too many digits.

3126106 comes up as KC8EST which is someone called Jeffrey.

3116106 comes up as KD7JL which is someone called Jerry.

I'm guessing it's the second one, but in any case you want a 7 digit ID.

Well, 3112610 is me. I made the correction but still no luck.

If the "Send no in-band data to modem" checkbox is unchecked, then the openSPOT2 will transmit inband data (talker alias) to your radio. As I see, the "Force generate talker alias to modem" setting is enabled, this means that if the call from the server does not have any talker alias in it, then the openSPOT2 will auto insert a talker alias based on it's ID database. Make sure the ID database is updated on your openSPOT2.

It works on the status screen, but the call sign is not making it to the radio.
Maybe I have something set wrong in the radio - not sure.
The radio does display the DMR ID#

On the 878 go to Menu->Talk Group->Talker Alias->Alias Rx Dis

This will allow you to select Contact First, Alias First or OFF.

I was sure that was going to fix it - but no.
Same thing with the DMR ID# coming through but no call sign.
Thank-you for trying.

Well, if the transmitting station is not sending Talker Alias then you won't see it. Not everyone has their radio set up to do it.

Yes, that did it. I switched over to the TGIF Prime network and
call signs and names started showing up.

Thanks again for your help.
