Re: [DVDongle] PTT Button Not Functional
- Have you registered the dongle on the D-Star network? You do NOT have transmit rights until you do. I had to send an email to a repeater keeper who has his repeater connected to the D-Star network. After he put my call-sign on the acceptance list it took a couple of days for my call-sign to be OKed through the network. This keeps unlicensed people from transmitting and breaking the terms of the amateur licence. Interestingly if some one becomes a serious problem then they could be removed?73 and 501 from

Subject: [DVDongle] PTT Button Not Functional
I received my dongle yesterday and have not had much luck with it.
Finally found info to download DVTool 2 beta4 and at least this app starts up and I am able to access my local repeater and my call comes up on dstar users site. My problem is that my transmit button appears to be greyed/greened out and I am unable to transmit. I have searched multiple gateways and have only heard anyone talking on one - is this the norm on D-star?
Also, I keep reading about accessing reflector 001 and how this is a crowded spot, but this does not show up in my list of available connections.
I am quite disappointed that after paying for this device I have to search for the information to get the device up and running and to trouble-shoot it. Shouldn't I be able to find out about the most stable and usable software on dvdongle.com?
