IRCDDB NETWORK

Post by MW0RUH on Sat Jan 21, 2012 12:22 am

Maybe you have heard about IRCDDB Maybe not.

IRCDDB allows almost realtime network updating of your last known use of the network

eg. last keyed up on GB7CD, it remembers you as being on that node, you switch to RB and key up it retraces you then to that node.
What's the purpose of this almost realtime recording of your movements?

D-star was designed to track your last known node location to enable you to be reached using Callsign routing.

How does this work, for those of you who know their way around the radios and wish to contact a friend who is travelling can use Callsign routing, to do this the UR: which normally has CQCQCQ set in it, is replaced with the callsign of the friend you wish to speak with eg. if you wanted to get hold of me replace CQCQCQ with MW0RUH and key up (this can be done with an unlinked node) the network will route to the last known location of My activity. so if I switched between nodes on my travels as long as I quickly PTT once on the new node you will find me. This function is available in D-plus but can take a few minutes to update, IRCDDB is almost instant so is more reliable at doing this. Visit IRCDDB Live at http://ircddb.net/live.htm and key up on GB7CD or MB6BA or MB6IRL and see how quick it is for yourself. If your callsign does not show up but is listed as ******** follow this link to see how it's done http://ircddb.net/live-vis.html

YOUR RADIO HAS A CALLSIGN CAPTURE FUNCTION IN IT'S MENUS( IF SOMEONE CALLSIGN ROUTES TO YOU PRESS THIS TO CAPTURE THEIR CALLSIGN FOR THE RETURN QSO) WHICH IS NORMALLY LABELLED CS OR RX-CS ON THE 92AD ITS THE BOTTOM RIGHT HAND BUTTON ALSO LISTED AS CALL. PRESS FOR ONE SECOND.

Good luck reply to this thread with any questions on this topic and I will attempt to respond with the solution.
