Read Me First | Troubleshooting

1

Use the link native to your radio.

To help prevent unwanted delays or audio issues, we recommend that you do not use YSF2DMR or DMR2YSF. If you have a DMR radio, use the DMR Talkgroup, if you have a YSF radio, use the YSF Reflector. More than likely, all will work fine, but there is not really a need to use these cross modes on HRCC Link.

2

Sign up for and enter your DMR ID into your hotspot. 

Even if you are using YSF, WiresX or DSTAR, in order for your name and callsign to properly pop up for ALL link users, is for you to be registered on radioid.net. After a few days you will get your ID, and it will populate the system.

3

Give a 5+ second wait between transmissions.

This is good operating practice, no matter what mode you are using. For DV Modes, it is especially important. If you do not wait, you will likely interrupt stations breaking in or replying, as there is always a delay.

4

Many factors can contribute to poor quality. If you are the only one experiencing an issue, please check:

1. Your wifi connection strength under configuration. Move your hotspot closer to wifi access.
2. Your BER in the dashboard. Adjust your RX Offset to acheive a lower BER (GUIDE).
3. Overheating hotspot.
4. Hotspot reboot.
5. Change master server

Pi-Star Hotspot Setup

Check out this video from Josh Nass on the Ham Radio Crash Course YouTube Channel.

This video will help you get your Pi-Star hotspot set up and ready to follow the more specific instructions below.

DMR Talkgroup

DMR Radio via Pi-Star Hotspot

Mobirise

1. MMDVM Host Configuration

Enable DMR Mode and Apply.

Mobirise

2. General Configuration

Standard Setup, ensure you have entered your Callsign and DMR ID.

Mobirise

3. DMR Configuration

Choose BM_ Master that is closest to your area and apply

Mobirise

4. Radio Configuration

You must finish by programing your radio with your Hotspot's frequency and the HRCC Talkgroup: #31621

YSF Reflector

YSF Radio via Pi-Star Hotspot

Mobirise

1. MMDVM Host Configuration

Enable YSF Mode and Apply.

Mobirise

2. General Configuration

Standard Setup, ensure you have your Callsign entered.

Mobirise

3. YSF Configuration

Choose the YSF01037 - US HRCC Link Reflector and apply

Mobirise

4. Radio Configuration

You must finish by programing your radio with your Hotspot's frequency and using DN mode.

Wires-X Room

YSF Radio via Repeater, Simplex Node or AP/PDN Mode

The Wires-X Room can be accessed via:
1. A Wires-X enabled radio + a Wires-X Enabled Repeater
2. A Wires-X enabled radio + a Wires-X Simplex Node (Either with an HRI-200 or a radio in AP mode)
3. An appropriate USB Interface cable and a radio that supports PDN Mode.
You unfortunately CANNOT connect to WiresX Node or Room directly from a Hotspot.
Connect:
Once you have gained access to the WiresX network, you may search for or enter the HRCC Room's ID: #61221

D-Star Reflector

D-Star Radio via Pi-Star Hotspot

Mobirise

1. MMDVM Host Configuration

Enable D-Star Mode and Apply.

Mobirise

2. General Configuration

Standard setup, making sure you have entered your Callsign.

Mobirise

3. DMR Configuration

Choose XLX621 A as the Defaul Reflector and apply

Mobirise

4. Radio Configuration

You must finish by programming your radio with your hotspot's frequency (as a DV repeater with an offset of 0.000, not simplex), Callsign (RPT1 on Pi-Star), GW Callsign (RPT2 on Pi-Star). Use "CQCQCQ" once the hotspot is connected to the reflector. 

D-Star Reflector

 D-Star Radio via Terminal Mode

Connect:
1. Use "urf.hrcc.link" as the gateway/server 

2. Use UR: /URF621A (NOT XLX) to connect.
Notes:
- If using cellular network, may need to use a VPN.
- If using a home network, may need to port forward UDP40000 if UDP Hole Punch doesn't work.
- If using a home network, may need to turn off DStar hotspots or disable UPNP as that can conflict with terminal mode.

DV Mode Host Files

This is a list of hostfiles that are used by various DV modes, programs and hotspots.
For example, DroidStar, Pi-Star, etc all use these to identify the Name and IP of reflectors to list.
