D-Star Calculator in ID-800 Programmers
Last Updated: 09/11/2012
The RT Systems Programmer for the ID-800 has limited use of the D-Star calculator. When you click Apply in the calculator, the frequency will be entered but the callsign information will not be completed.

D-Star entries of the ID-800 are limited by the Your Call and Rpt Call lists found on the DStar Settings page of the program. There are available only 9 Your Callsigns and 54 Repeater Callsigns total for the radio to use in ALL the memory channels. Callsigns with extensions must be entered into this list before the radio can use the information in a memory channel.

The program cannot know when these lists are over-run while you are working on the main screen. It also cannot optimize use of these fields as you can. With this limitation, this radio can handle maybe 8 or 9 D-Star repeaters.

The program reflects the design and requirements of the radio.

The calculator is there for information only. Find your repeaters and jot down the callsign information you need to enter from the bottom of the Calculator screen (just as you would if you retrieved the information from another source).
