Help with D-Star related issues
Hi James,G0UJA wrote: ↑Sun Mar 20, 2022 1:02 am I'm not sure if this will help but I had a similar issue to this thread which I discovered tonight and 'fixed'.
This is a recent issue and everything was working perfectly up until a week or so ago.
I could connect to all XLX reflectors and also REF079 but not REF001 or REF030.
First I thought I had been banned from REF001/REF030 but it was not via my IP because I could view the status pages.
Then I thought maybe my callsign was blocked so I tried changing my callsign on my hotspot and bingo, everything worked...
I was about to write a sorry email to the admin of the reflectors begging for forgiveness for whatever I had or had not done when I discovered that despite registering over a decade ago at the start of Dstar and being active ever since my details had TOTALLY DISAPPEARED FROM THE DSTAR DATABASE!!!
I have no idea how or why but a stab in the dark is that the gateway I originally registered with (GB7AU) is now obsolete/changed hands and perhaps all users who registered through it over the years have been lost/deleted?
Who knows anyway after registering again everything works perfectly.

the old "GB7AU" D-Star repeater was not operational for some time and the internet was disconnected. The site has a team looking after it now (see www.77hz.com). I replaced the Icom box with a MMDVM box (built by G7KBR who has done 3 for out site now - GB7WL, GB7AU & GB3AL) which was originally D-Star & YSF but is only D-Star now however it seems that the connection requests are not holding.
We are currently looking into the issue.
