Long PTT for YSF

Post by M0ORA » Tue Jul 14, 2020 7:10 pm

Think this is the most relevant thread for the issue I'm having...so here goes...please advise if there's a more relevant one however:

Recently enabled YSF on my PiStar repeater (repeater not hotspot).

When I press the WiresX button nothing happens, however if I give the PTT a longer press (2secs) the repeater wakes and then the WiresX button functionality will return the room info and allow me to change rooms etc...seems like a timeout issue but it's strange that in idle the WiresX button has no effect until a longer PTT to wake??

Any ideas? Anyone come across this before and know a workaround?

My setup is a PiStar running on a 3b+ connected to a Yaesu DR1X repeater.

DStar works perfectly.
DMR works perfectly.


Thanks,
Rob.

Yep, that's the way you need run it. When idle the data burst from a X command is often to short to wake the install. Keying up before hand allows the modem to grab and 'lock' to the mode.

Ah ok - thanks - nothing the I could tweak in the settings?
If not I’ll put a note on the repeater website about it.

On my FT3D I tap the X button a second time for the hotspot, same with the '400.

Yep. One def. help would be to turn off all the other modes. Image

Haha...that’s not happening 🤣

Out of interest is this the same across the entire WiresX capable range or just certain models that have this issue?

In my case I only have YSF enabled though I also have YSF2DMR configured. I have to push the Wires-X button 2 times to wake it up. This is with an FT3. I don't remember my FT2 doing this with PI-Star v3.

Try adjusting rx offset slightly to improve BER aiding the install to better recognise you. But as said the initial Xbutton burst is a very short tx.
