For the TH-D74, it's much easier to use the REFLECTOR menu (hold ^ until menu appears, scroll and select REFLECTOR, scroll to LINK, select reflector [works in fields: reflector type, 3digit number, node letter]. PTT to send link command, may need twice if the hotspot didn't quite sync the first time. Return to REFLECTOR menu, select USE (this configures the CQCQCQ with repeater/reflector fields in place).KE0FHS wrote: ↑Mon Nov 26, 2018 2:45 pmWhen this has happened to me (ZUMspot + TH-D74A), it has almost always been a mistake in my radio setup.
I'm not sure what you've tried so far and how familiar you are with using a hotspot, but a few basic suggestions:
- The module always has to be in the eighth spot (except for the link command), so if your callsign is five characters, then you have to leave two blank spaces between your callsign and the B or G in the RPT1 and RPT2 fields.
- For the linking command, the module letter moves into the seventh spot, and L goes in the eighth spot.
- Once you are linked, you have to switch to a calling channel (UR CALL: CQCQCQ), and at least for the Kenwood HT, it's important that you program that using Direct Input, not Local Call.
