Allstar issue using DVSwitch


John
 

Hello, I have a problem with DVSwitch when using Allstar, everything is configured as am able to receive incoming transmissions when I connect to a node e.g. 41522 using command *241522 followed by SEND, but when I transmit nothing heard other end. My allstar node is bridged with Echolink Repeater and am able to Tx and Rx to myself when not connected to a node,  I can however Tx and Rx to a connected Allstar node via Echolink, why can't I Tx directly from Allstar? Any advice appreciated please. Thanks, John

Thanks Steve will try that, I was using the predefined talk groups when long pressing B which are prefixed with a *2

I too noticed that when using the predefined talk groups, when I long press B they are prefixed with *2 instead of *3. I wonder why.

Safety is the reason. *2 puts you in receive only, no accidental transmit.

This is how I've been connecting with DTMF for years. Then I do a *30 when I know I actually want to talk. That way, I don't blast telemetry and make a bunch of unnecessary noise just by showing up. I think this is much less of an issue if you're using something like DVSwitch, but it sure does prevent accidental keying.
