Can RX but no longer TX on D-Star

Post by EI2IXB » Sun Nov 10, 2019 3:41 pm

Hi All,

I have been successfully using my PI-Star hotspot for the last month or so with my Icom IC-7100 ( PI-Star Ver : 4.1.0-RC4)

When I tried to do a QSO yesterday on REF 001 C, I was getting no reply and as you can see from the first picture a beep and the below message : "RPT? : EI2IXB B (HOTSPOT)"

I have went through my settings on the Hotspot in fine detail and nothing has changed and borrowed a DV Mega and configured it and used Blue DV and Volia it works.

I've made no changes to my hotspot and it is using the same configuration from the day I set it up.

I did notice however on my Icom IC-7100 in the Callsign menu R2 : is saying not used* and should be saying EI2IXB G, but it does not let me change it.

I am baffled on what is wrong and have tried everything I could think of right down to rebuilding the hotspot with a new image to no avail.

Unfortunately the PDF manual leaves a lot to be desired -- your "Use Repeater" screen was not seen in the manual while I was flipping through the D-STAR section.

I suspect you need to be set for the equivalent of "Use Gateway".
