D-Star D-STAR* (General)

Welcome to the D-STAR* radio forum for general comments, questions and suggestions.

Registering - 29/11/2014

Hi all. As a (very) newcomer to DStar I have come up against what I guess is the most common problem. I can hear all the local repeaters but no one can hear me. The advice re registering on DStar is a bit vague, to me anyway. If I still need to register on a local repeater how do I do that?
Am I barking up the wrong tree?

Technically, to be heard locally on a repeater you don't need to be registered on a gateway server, however it is definitely recommended since a lot of traffic will be via a gateway server.

First, I would recommend contacting a local gateway administrator to get registered. Once you've registered, make sure your first terminal is set up on the gateway server.

Then you can verify your radio is properly configured. MYCALL should be your own callsign without any additional identifiers at the end. URCALL should be CQCQCQ. RPT1 will be the repeater callsign with the module letter in the 8th position (typically C for 2 meters, B for 70 cm, and A for 23 cm). RPT2 will be the gateway callsign, which is almost 100% of the time the repeater callsign with the letter G in the 8th position.

You can do that radio configuration without being registered on the gateway, however you won't be heard through the gateway at all.

Hope this helps!
