Not able to Transmit with my FT70DR

Post by vr2wpd » Thu Nov 29, 2018 9:13 pm


My jumbospot works fine on DSTAR with my Icom ID51A Plus, but when I use it on YSF with my Yaesu FT70DR, I can hear other's traffic (their call signs are also shown on my FT70DR's screen), but I can't transmit on my Jumbospot. My RF transmission is not shown on the dashboard at all. I tested my FT70DR and it has no problem. There must be something wrong with the setting. Is it related to the RX offset setting?

Please advise.

If your hotspot is set to Private more (general settings in the config page) the callsign in the radio MUST match the repeater exactly.

Possible solution:

These exact symptoms occur if the FT-70DR is not transmitting in simplex to a hotspot (Zumspot in my case). Check the radio for simplex operation with the F-0 key sequence. Make sure the setting value is "SIMP". (Pi-Star on the hotspot also should be in simplex.)

This stopped my hair pulling.
