DTMF Information

Basic DTMF Function List

*1 => Link Disconnect
*2 => Link Connect (Monitor Only)
*3 => Link Connect

To connect to another Allstar node, use the Link Connect (*3) plus the node number. For example, to connect to node 2000, use *32000. To Disconnect from a node, use the Link Disconnect (*1) plus the node number or use (*76) Disconnect All Links.

To find a list of active node numbers click on the Active Nodes menu option located above.

Advanced DTMF Function List

*70 => Link Status (directly connected nodes)
*75 => Full system status (Use with extreme care, as if connected to a major hub there will be a lot of nodes connected and the system can time-out before listing them all.)
*76 => Disconnect all links
*77 => Reconnect links disconnected with "disconnect all links"

*80 => ID (local)
*81 => Time (local)

*90 => parrot mode (enables one cycle of parroting only)
*91 => DTMF Test, enter this command (*91) + digit string + (#) to playback

*980 => App_rpt Version

*555 = Return setting back to defaults

Echolink Connectivity

From Allstar, Echolink connections look just like Allstar connections except the Echolink node numbers have been prefixed with a 3 and padded out to 7 digits with leading zeroes. For instance, if you want to connect to Echolink node 1234 on the AllStar system you would dial *3 followed by 3001234. If you have a 6 digit Echolink node number 123456, you would dial *3 followed by 3123456. To disconnect it is the same as above but instead of the *3 you would use the *1.

For users originating from an Echolink node or using the Echolink software, nothing changes, you simply dial the Echolink node number assigned to this system 296597 (VK6MT-L) and it should connect!
