DCS/XLX connector

You can use this connector to connect to a network which supports the DCS protocol like DCS or XLX.

The easiest way is to use the Quick setup to connect to these networks.

DCS and XLX servers usually do not need a valid D-STAR registration, but you can check your callsign's registration by clicking on the Check D-STAR registration button.

If you want to talk on a DCS or XLX reflector, set the URCALL on your radio to CQCQCQ, and the local module to D in the openSPOT2. Make sure you have not entered any space characters in your radio before or after CQCQCQ in the URCALL.

Switching reflectors/gateways using your radio

URCALL/your call method

You can switch reflectors using your radio by starting a short call to their names as the destination callsign (URCALL), like DCS001 A, or XLX001 A. Set the desired remote module as the last character of the URCALL. You can switch to gateways the same way. You can also switch to REF/XRX servers by this method. Switching to REF/XRF servers or gateways this way changes the openSPOT2's active connector to the REF/XRF connector.

DTMF method

Here are some example DTMF command sequences:

Switching to REF servers:

  • *1C or *01C or *001C will change the active connector to the REF/XRF connector and connects to REF001 module C.

Switching to XRF servers:

  • B8B or B08B or B008B will change the active connector to the REF/XRF connector and connects to XRF008 module B.

Switching to XLX servers:

  • C5B or C502 or C0502 connects to XLX005 module B.
  • C9D or C904 or C0904 connects to XLX009 module D.

Switching to DCS servers:

  • D5A or D501 or D0501 connects to DCS005 module A.
  • D1C or D103 or D0103 connects to DCS001 module C.

Notes

As the openSPOT2 is designed to be always connected, the unlink (U) command is not interpreted. If you really want to disconnect, you can switch to a config profile which has the Null connector activated.
