Evening All So, I have myself a nice new Kenwood TH-D74E, and it's all working well except for the fact I am unable to get myself onto D-STAR with it. Simplex U/VHF all working OK, I can also connect to my usual analogue repeaters, but am having some serious issues (and fun) trying to get onto D-STAR. The radio is pre-loaded with all the D-STAR nodes around the world, and I have found my local one (Cwmbran, UK WB6AB and have been working with some of the admins of that node today in trying to get myself onto it. I am registered with D-STAR. To summarise, I am able to Rx all conversations, but not to Tx. My log in to D-STAR can be seen on dstarsusers.org at the time, so it appears I am getting in but am not getting through when I Tx. The admins of WB6AB have confirmed I am getting in, but no Tx is heard so this leads me to think I am doing something incorrectly operationally. Are there any Kenwood D74 users out there who may be able lend a helping hand please and point me in the right direction please.
