Thank you for that information. That's really good news as I wouldn't want my activity to diminish the enjoyment of others on the system. Granted, the local repeater doesn't get all that much use and from looking at the information online, can go for a day or so with no activity at all. But knowing that connecting to the repeater using a dv dongle will be pretty much transparent to other users makes me look forward to getting into DSTAR using this method.

> Hi Jeff. That is a good question. DV Dongle users connect into gateways and reflectors using the same resource pool. Since gateways usually have a small pipe to the internet, the dplus software defaults to a limit of 4 connected users. This is in addition to any linking between the gateway and other gateways or reflectors.
