OK.

So are you saying that you can't wake the repeater if its not transmitting ?


If someone else transmits on TS2 can you reply to them on TS2
If someone else transmits on TS1 can you reply to them on TS1

Does another QSO need to continue on the other TS for you to have a QSO ? e.g. if the other QSO ends, does the repeater still receive your signal and continue to work ?

* The repeater only receives my signal if it is transmitting

* Thx. Juan

How do you know if it receives your signal, if you say you can't use the repeater on TS1 or TS2 even if it is already transmitting?

1. I check the brandmeister dashboard and I see my callsign

2. When I release the PTT, the repeater is finishing transmitting and I see my callsign on the screen of my walkie

Thx

OK.

So the repeater is hearing your signal.

What it sounds like is that the repeater does not wake up when you transmit.

So either the repeater is not waking up or the OpenGD77 does not hear the response from the repeater and then go into full Tx mode.

If I turn on an analog receiver and and I tune it on the dmr repeater output, I do not receive a dmr signal while I transmit on the repeater input with my gd77,

yes, I think GD77 don't go into full Tx mode.

The repeater is not waking up.

BTW. Which version firmware are you using ?
