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.
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.
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.
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
