You can also tune to a YSF reflector using the reflector ID number.
You can find the ID number at
For example The DVSwitch reflector ID number is 10200. For YSF
reflectors you want to add a 8 in front of the ID.
Change modes to YSF
enter 810200 in he dial string.
You are connected to the DVSwitch YSF reflector.
Hope this helps,

Hi there! I have been enjoying using the
DVSwitch software to bridge my Allstar node into the digital
modes. I followed one of the documents to then add function
commands so I can switch modes and talk groups, and it works
reasonably well for TGIF and Brandmeister on DMR. I ended up
implementing the DVSwitch side of things on a cloud-based
Allstar node because I didn’t want to go down the Hamvoip
rabbit hole and mess up my Clear Node. Also, I am an iPhone
user, so, this is the only way I know of to access the digital
modes, and I control that with commands sent through Zoiper.
Then, I found some nets that are on Fusion, such as the
Saturday net on America Link. I had made my *00 command, after
hitting *06 to switch to YSF, hard coded to what was the
current hostname and port to Americalink. That worked OK until
the reflector address must’ve changed hostnames, and one week
I got some other QSO, and the next week, I got nothing.
Looking it up on the ysf reflector website list told me that
my problem was an address that changed. How can I, using the
dvswitch.sh tune command, tune to these with a command that
will look up the current address and use it? It is kind of
tedious to look up hostnames when someone mentions a reflector
a net is on, or I otherwise find it online. Is that even
available with the commandline scripts, or am I stuck having
to make rpt.conf functions that contain each hostname/port to
tune to and hope they don’t change ty the time I call them up?
