    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation.

Yaesu: DR-1X Questions re: squelch tail and Echolink

Hi guys,

Thought this would be a good place to ask. I have a new (refurb) DR-1X that just went live last week. It appears to be operating well, but had a couple of questions.

One, while I have the repeater hooked up to a Wires-X room via an HRI200, if I wanted to move off of that onto Echolink, is there a best option? The ability to remote in via phone app would be valuable to the people who want to get on the machine, and I don't know if Wires-X will ever get there?

Two, are there any secret squelch tail or other related config settings that I should know about? I have the tail set to 0ms, but the repeater still holds it open for a good 1/2 second after transmission. I have set it to different lengths in the settings, but it doesn't seem to affect things. Just curious if there is a known bug or issue, or if I'm missing something.

Thanks and 73--
