Dstar Mode. Reflector announcing when keying up

Post by EJP »

I was wondering if anyone knows what I’m doing wrong.

I am using the OpenSpot 3 along with my ICOM ID-51. Each and every time that I key up the radio, the radio announces the reflector that it’s connected to. I can’t find any place in the configuration to corrected this annoying problem. I appreciate anyones thoughts and thank you!

Well Two identical questions phrased differently and one more

First the one more
Are you in DR mode or "Regular" (As I call it mode)?

Answer: DR MODE
What is in the TO field on your display? I'm guessing LINK TO REFLECTOR and under that is something like REF123CL This is the Link to reflector (123 module c in the example) command. Select TO.. REFLECTOR and then USE REFLECTOR (or turn the small knob to USE REFLECTOR and the 2nd line cqcqcq

You can also use LOCAL CQ with the OS line.. Works the same.

Answer: Regular mode

What's in the YOUR CALL field on the memory? CQCQCQ or "REF123CL"
It should be CQCQCQ

NOTE the "info" command (Your Call is seven spaces and the letter "I" for Info) will also generate a "linked to" reply.

The YOUR CALL or TO field must be CQCQCQ (or USE REFLECTOR/cqcqcq
If you want to talk to folks.

Except for the "You can also use "local CQ" part. all the above applies to all hotspots.

All set!
Thanks again John for your assist. Problem solved. You were correct. The problem was in the way I was setting up the reflector on the radio. Followed your lead and appreciate your efforts.

It is not the first (nor last I suspect) time I've seen it.
In fact I did it yesterday myself...
Very common issue.
