Yaesu FT-3DR OpenSpot 2 Settings

Post by bflores » Thu Aug 29, 2019 6:26 am

Can someone please tell me how to configure the new Yaesu FT-3DR to work with the Openspot 2?

- I can hear / receive on the FT-3DR just fine.
- Transmitting from the FT-3DR, does not receive on Openspot 2. Nothing shows up on Status page.
- Since transmit is not working for calls, Wires-x is not working either.
- Purchased RT Systems in hopes it would help with the config. I have attached the config / settings below.
- Openspot works just fine if I use my Btech DMR-6X2 DMR Radio. So I suspect its a config issue with my C4FM Openspot Settings or FT-3DR Settings.

Here are my current settings.

Please use the Quick Setup to set up the OS2, and also run C4FM Half Deviation AutoCal to rule out receive issues. You can test the connection between your transceiver and the OS2 by using the built-in local echo service. http://manuals.sharkrf.com/openspot2/en ... l#page-top

Thank you Norbert! Transmit from FT-3DR to OP2 Receiver, works now, after performing the Openspot AutoCal. Performed a successful Echo Test to TF 31000 Parrot.

(HOW I GOT THE FT-3DR TO TRANSMIT TO THE OPENSPOT 2)
1.) Clicked Quick Setup then checked "Advanced" option
2.) Then clicked "AutoCal" option.
3.) Made sure Modem Receive field was set to the "simplex mode" frequency of the FT-3DR.
4.) Made sure Modem Transmit field was set to the "simplex mode" frequency of the FT-3DR.
5.) Pressed "PTT" on FT-3DR and started to see the Phase 1, 2 and 3 move forward.
6.) Noticed it changed the offset to -400, so I clicked "Save".
7.) Clicked Quick Setup - C4FM - Brandmeister - 3100 Parrot, and performed a successful echo test.

But WiresX button is not working.

- I press the red "X" Wires X button on the FT-3DR and it makes few beeps, as if it connects to WiresX.
- Screen changes to click Openspot2, search, or BrandMestier.
- I press search, and wait..then times out. No talk groups show.
- I enter WiresX while in Channel Mode When I exit WiresX mode, by holding the red "X" key, I notice it puts me into VFO mode. Not sure if that is a clue to what might be happening. . I.e. may be loosing all the custom channel info, like half deviation, simplex vs offset, etc.
- My WiresX menu item "1 RPT/WIRES FREQ" is set to Manual. Saw a post in the forums for an FT-2DR that changing from "Preset" to "manual" fixed it for him. But I am already on manual.
- "2. Search Setup" is set to "History". Vs, Activity. Not sure if that may be what's causing the issue.

Active connector should be YSF reflector in Wires-X connection. Are you using that connector?

Thank you for the tip..but I still must not be doing something right. It did take me a bit to realize I have to wait for the Openspot2 to stop transmitting (no red blinking), before I can communicate with it (as the TX/RX is on the same frequency/simplex). But even with that. Still no talk group list when I press search all.

(NOT WORKING)
Same error. When I press search, I get a "Waiting" with a "no response" beeps, if I choose YSF Reflector or BrandMestier.

(WORKING)
DTMF tones are confirmed working. I can change talk groups this way, as a work around.
1. Press and hold PTT
2. Press DTMF on screen.
3. Type in # then the talkgroup number i.e 3001

When you connected to YSF connector in C4FM mode please click to "ALL" on your radio display in searching mode to see all of your saved profile and Wires-X connections. Here is Bob's K6UDA tutorial video for your help.He is also active in this forum.

I had a Yaesu FTM-400XDR and now a Yaesu FT-3D. I had not touched anything on my OS2 and it works pretty well including when the Wires-x function.

As I wrote before you please select YSF reflector for Wires-X connection.
