Icom 2820

Post by Wayne50 »

Hi group I’ve been using my 2820 on dstar for some time through the OS1 my fav ref is 001C but for some reason I’m not sure I can’t put a call out on the reflector however I can receive just fine, in the status it says I’m putting a call out but only as far as the modem and nobody can hear me! Is it a setting in the radio or the openspot that’s at fault? Any help please guys thanks.

What reply do you mean?

Make sure your radio's URCALL is set to CQCQCQ. If it's CQCQCQ then please verify on the openSPOT's status page that the radio is transmitting to CQCQCQ.

You can also test the connection between the radio and the openSPOT by using the openSPOT's built-in local echo service. If you hear yourself back correctly, then you can test the server's echo service on module E (don't forget to set the URCALL back to CQCQCQ after you've done with the built-in echo test).

Set the local module on the openSPOT connector configuration to D, and the remote module to C.

Hi think it’s something to do with the 2820 and it’s totally baffling me in the menu so I’m at a loss sorry.

You only need to set the URCALL on the radio and nothing else. All other settings has to be done on the openSPOT.
