DX button search of hostfile

Post by AE5JO » Mon May 27, 2019 8:22 pm

Fusion radios, at least the ones I have, do not allow for space or underscore in DX button searches of room/reflector names. The only characters allowed outside of alpha and numeric are slash and hyphen. Would it be possible to replace spaces in host files with hyphens when updating hostfiles (or set an option for it like the "ALL CAPS") so the radio may be used to search through reflectors (and DMR talkgroups when using YSF2DMR) more effectively?

This is not as important as it once was, I modified the YSFGateway a while back to make the search match anywhere in the name (not just at the start).
Currently this only applies to YSFGateway and NOT YSF2xxx modes, but I have asked Andy (CA6JAU) who wrote those to make the same change.
