K6JWN MultiMode Repeater -- Using DMR

Here's a summary of what you can do with D-STAR on the K6JWN repeater: RF users are free and encouraged to link to other reflectors (just check first that others are not using the repeater).

These options give our users access to thousands of users worldwide. While you will probably link to REF reflectors most of the time, the DCS and XRF systems open up a very large network of other D-Star users.


Your radio can be in either DR Mode or use pre-programmed memories. The UR callsign field would look like UR=REF030CL to linking to reflector 30C. Check out Linking to Reflectors or Repeaters. When finished using that reflector, try to relink back to our default reflector. If that is not possible, the system will relink to the default if there is no local RF D-Star activity for 15 minutes.

Please remember our objective is to give the best experience for all club members and users within RF range of W6CX-DV. Our hope is no one mode will "take over" the repeater, and a good way to achieve that is to avoid very busy talkgroups unless you can find no one else to talk to. (The same caveat applies to D-STAR reflector REF001C and DMR talkgroup 91 WorldWide). Thanks!

Setting up your radio

Make sure you have registered your callsign for D-STAR. Click the above "For new D-STAR Users" link (then click the "Register" button. We recommend setting up one "terminal" with a space in the so-called "initial" box.

Check your radio's Callsigns -- After configuring DR Mode or selecting the memory for QSOs, as a final check, go to your radio's Menu and select Callsigns. Here is what you want to see: Nets
