Control calls

There are some special IDs and callsigns which trigger built-in services and actions when a call is received to them from your radio.

Local echo service

If the local echo service's ID or callsign is called, the openSPOT2 records the voice transmission and plays it back after the call from the radio is finished. This is useful for hearing your own voice back to test the connection between your radio and the openSPOT2. If you have local echo voice quality issues, see the AutoCal special connector.

The local echo service can be triggered if the call is sent to the following IDs/callsigns:

  • DMR, NXDN and P25:** ID 9999. Both private and group calls to this ID are answered with a private call.
  • D-STAR: call is sent to .......E (7 spaces and an E, replace dots with spaces).
  • C4FM: call DGID is set to 99.

Note that only about 10 seconds can be recorded and played back by the local echo service.

Current configuration profile query

The current configuration profile's number can be queried by calling the following IDs/callsigns:

  • DMR, NXDN and P25: ID 9000. Both private and group calls are interpreted.
  • D-STAR: call is sent to .......P (7 spaces and an P, replace dots with spaces), or DTMF code A is entered.
  • C4FM: Special command/cross mode private call DTMF code (by default it's *) is entered followed by DTMF code A.

The current configuration profile number will be announced by the voice. The DMR/NXDN/P25 profile query ID can be changed on the Settings page, Voice announcements section.

Change configuration profile

The active configuration profile can be changed by calling the following IDs/callsigns:

  • DMR, NXDN and P25: ID 9000+configuration profile number. Example: to switch to config profile 1, start a short call to 9001. Both private and group calls are interpreted.
  • D-STAR: call is sent to .......1 (7 spaces and the configuration profile number, replace dots with spaces), or DTMF code A is entered followed by the configuration profile number.
  • C4FM: Special command/cross mode private call DTMF code (by default it's *) is entered followed by DTMF code A, then the desired configuration profile number.

Connector status query

The currently active connector's status can be queried by calling the following IDs/callsigns:

  • DMR, NXDN and P25: ID 9998. Both private and group calls are interpreted.
  • D-STAR: call is sent to .......I (7 spaces and an I, replace dots with spaces), or DTMF code D or 0 is entered.
  • C4FM: Special command/cross mode private call DTMF code is entered followed by DTMF code D.

The connector status will be announced by voice. The DMR/NXDN/P25 connector status query ID can be changed on the Settings page, Voice announcements section.

Active IP address query

The active IP address can be queried by calling the following IDs/callsigns:

  • DMR, NXDN and P25: ID 9997. Both private and group calls are interpreted.
  • D-STAR: call is sent to .......A (7 spaces and an A, replace dots with spaces), or DTMF code B is entered.
  • C4FM: Special command/cross mode private call DTMF code is entered followed by DTMF code B.

The IP address will be announced by voice. The DMR/NXDN/P25 IP address query ID can be changed on the Settings page, Voice announcements section.

The openSPOT2 is designed to be always connected, however, the unlink (U) command is supported and activates the Null connector (which - as it's name says - does not connect anywhere).

You can unlink if a call is sent to .......U (7 spaces and a U, replace dots with spaces), or DTMF code # is entered.
