This is a quick guide to help in programming your radio for use
with the WMPORN D-Star repeater. This guide does not cover how
to program an individual radio but only some examples of how
to program the four callsign fields for use with the WMPORN repeater.
In all cases the MyCall in your radio should be set to your
callsign. It seems there are a couple of things that I have to make
clear at this point. First of all these examples use the callsign
that was assigned to me, don't be an idiot, replace N8WKM in the
examples with your own callsign. Second, the MyCall spot should be
set to your callsign and ONLY your callsign. This is not packet
radio and we don't use an SSID, set your callsign and only your
callsign into the MyCall position. I can't make this any clearer.
Please take note, all callsigns for RPT1, RPT2 and YourCall (UrCall on
the Icom 2200h) is eight letters/numbers long and only eight. No matter
what, the routing information MUST go in the last position. If you don't
understand this, quickstart is not for you, seek the longer versions of
the documentation on Icom's website or your user manual.
Due to the number of users that connect to the WX8GRR repeater using the
DV-Dongle, we are suggesting immediately that all radio users change the
settings in their radios to use the gateway at all times. This way when
someone connects using a DV-Dongle they will be able to hear you. This
will change the way that you set your radio.
