direct and thereby hear the entire qso).
Remember we have D-Star repeaters on 2m and 440 so use them for conversations with local hams until we get them connected to the internet (soon, I hope).
To talk on the hot spot your radio should have “CQCQCQ” in the UR field, “KK4IQW C” in RPT1, and “KK4IQW G” in RPT2. The hot spot also supports the Status and Echo commands (status requires “I” and Echo requires “E” in the 8th position of the UR field).
I will conduct the North Florida D-Star ARES Net at 0800 on Wednesday using the
Hot Spot linked to reflector REF046C. There is also a D-Star training net on REF046C Thursday nights at 2000 and you can check in to that net using the hot spot.
Remember the Hot Spot is simplex. You will not hear another local station unless you can hear them direct.
Please use it and enjoy. If you have any questions/comments or need help with programming your D-Star radio, please contact me.
