At the present time XLX reflectors are turned off
There is also XLX reflectors that we are connected to and by default the repeater connects to XLX950E but can be changed to XLX000 to XLX999 by Private Call to 68000 to 68999 and you connect to A to Z using a private call to 64001-64026 and disconnect using private call 64000 and Status using private call 65000(Voice confirmation).
All XLX reflectors are linked to TS1-TG6 after connection so you would talk on the XLX reflector that your connected to via TS1-TG6. The XLX reflector system is still in Beta but should be working well.
XLXHosts.txt can be viewed for current Hosts that can be connected to by converting to the appropriate private call to connect. Only those shown in the XLXHosts.txt are setup for connecting to.
If you just want to use the default XLX950 then you don't have to change the Host just the reflector A to Z.
If no RF activity for 10 minutes on the XLX reflector if it was changed from default then it will revert back to the default reflector of XLX950E.
If there is a TG that you can't seem to get working let us know and we will see what we can do for you.
Our Main connection is to Brandmeister and it's reflectors are accessed via TS1 TG6
All local traffic is on TS2-TG9 or TG2 (TG9 is default)
There is a Parrot on TG9990 or TG310997 on either TS which you can use to check your audio into the system.
If you have GPS in your radio set the GPS TG to 310999 and you would enable the GPS in the channel.
The GPS should be set to 60 seconds or more and then will send your position to the APRS whenever you talk on the channel that it is enabled on.
D-Star and Fusion should work as there meant to work and if your not familiar with them please contact us so we can connect you with someone who can help you with them.
You can listen to the repeater via Hoseline which is only traffic via RF not via network.
The 145.110- Digital Repeater is on-line and there is code plugs below.
