I recently bought a V71A with the intentions of setting it up as a crossband repeater. I have been told that V71A and D710A are basically the same radios with different head units so I saved some money and went with V71A as I didnt need the APRS or TNC functionality of D710. I have seen people having success with having set up their D710 as a cross band repeater for DSTAR. But unfortunately I have only had partial luck so far. My 2 DSTAR radios are Kenwood D74 and Icom 7100. My V71A will pass DSTAR transmissions going from VHF to UHF but not the other way around. From UHF to VHF its just static. So far I have tried changing the modulation to Narrow FM but still no luck. Any input is much appreciated.
