Using the Wires-X button

Here's a video about the openSPOT2's Wires-X button support:

If the openSPOT2's modem is in C4FM (or C4FM Half Deviation) modem mode, then the device will automatically broadcast Wires-X information which will be displayed on radios in Wires-X mode. You can switch your C4FM/Fusion radio into Wires-X mode by pressing it's Wires-X button (sometimes labelled as DX button).

The openSPOT2 displays the currently active configuration profile number at the bottom right corner of the FT2D's display. Displayed information may look different on other type of C4FM/Fusion radios. The examples here are demonstrated using an FT2D.

Using your openSPOT2 with a C4FM/Fusion radio in Wires-X mode is very convenient as you'll always see the active server's name, and you can easily switch between servers using the radio's user interface.

Listing servers

You can get a server listing by selecting the Search & Direct option and then selecting the All button.

The first 5 entries will be your openSPOT2's configuration profiles. The list will contain the servers of the currently active connector. In case the currently active connector does not have a server list (ex. the Null connector), YSFReflector servers will be listed. To switch to an entry, select it using the dial and press PTT for a short time (or just tap on it in case you have a touch display).

Searching for servers

You can search in the server list by selecting the Search & Direct option and then selecting the Search & Direct button.

You can enter a part of the server name. All matching servers will be listed. To switch to a server, select it using the dial and press PTT for a short time (or just tap on it in case you have a touch display).

Direct ID entry

You can connect to YSFReflector servers directly if you know the desired server's ID. Select the Search & Direct option, then select the Search & Direct button, then select the ID button. Enter the server ID and then select the ENT button. Server IDs are 5 digit long, make sure you've entered all digits otherwise the radio won't let you select the ENT button.

Categories

You can save your favorite servers by adding them to categories. The openSPOT2 will automatically switch to the saved server's connector in case it's needed.

Adding a server

Select the server name on the main Wires-X screen (the option at the bottom). This will load the station information screen. Select the Add button, then select a category.

Recalling a server

Select the Search & Direct option, then select a category to list it's saved servers. To switch to a server, select it using the dial and press PTT for a short time (or just tap on it in case you have a touch display).

Deleting/renaming

You can delete a server from a category in your radio's main settings menu. Select the Wires-X option and then the Remove room/node option.

You can rename a category also in this Wires-X menu.
