Re: TH-D74 not heard on XLX reflectors

Well this is going sideways..... I adhere to the software principal of "protect the user from making unintended mistakes". By allowing me to enter lower case and it works in some cases but not others - that's a problem I think we all agree upon. I don't study international standards for ham radio to...

Re: TH-D74 not heard on XLX reflectors

Good insights; thank you all. I like the idea of suggesting Kenwood force upper case; I'll follow through on that.

It's interesting now that I know this how many people I see with lower case. I'm making it a point to tell people, esp if they id with D74.
Help spread the word!

Re: Pi-Star Multi-Reflector

Found the problem. My radio (TH-D74A) did not have My Callsign (menu 610) set properly. I was using mixed case for my name “Dave”. When I ensure it’s all caps “N6XVZ___/DAVE” it works! I have had this mixed case configuration for a year and had no problems on normal REFlectors. Just XLX. So if any D...

Re: TH-D74 not heard on XLX reflectors

K2DLS - thank you for the kind offer; however I can see I’m not heard. However....... I FOUND THE PROBLEM! My TH-D74A setup had a tiny problem with My Callsign (menu 610 for you kenwoods!) Mine has always been N6XVZ___/Dave. (Note for newbies the underscores _ are blanks to fill out to 8characters N...

Re: TH-D74 not heard on XLX reflectors

I too have a TH-D74 and am not heard on XLX reflectors. I tried the two above suggested - I show up as connected but that's it. Latest TH-D74 firmware as well as current on firmware and pistar release. I have zero problems with REFnnn and DCSnnn. It's as if I'm missing a key basic setting or underst...

Re: 4.1.0.RC3 - Dashboard Problem 20190709

Back at my home QTH and it does work fine now. I was on a different WiFi network running on an extender. Everything else was fine but it wouldn’t act upon the request to change reflector.

4.1.0.RC3 - Dashboard Problem 20190709

Am able to change via radio command (DSTAR) Also able to change via ircddbremote via iPhone. Just executed an update, rebooted, no joy. Running iPad/safari so restarted that as well. No ...

Re: Pi-Star Multi-Reflector

Well I’m a bit embarrassed with all the typo’s strewn through my post. I did use XRF303 E and XRF587 E, successfully linked but no luck. I see you and WD0HR coming thru as DMR (XLX) but not myself. I must be missing something fundamental as I just have D-Star mode enabled and use “Dplus for XRF” ena...

Pi-Star Multi-Reflector

Is the Dstar XLX linkage working? I can’t seem to raise the reflector. I connect to DCS303E or DCS589E or XRF002E or XRF589E and nothing. I can for example see myself linked on the XRF002 dashboard but nothing doing on the multi-reflector. I don’t see any apparent D* activity on the multi-reflector ...

Re: Dashboard login issue with iOS

Interestingly I had a similar problem trying to reach pi-star.local. I upgraded by existing ASUS router by adding another an enabling their proprietary Mesh networking. I enabled their "Smart Connect" feature recently that blends 2.4 and 5 ghz and directs the client to the right choice (black magic!...
