Does anyone have experience of decoding the output of an Icom IDAS repeater using DSD+.

Normally for a Kenwood Nexedge setup I'd expect to see CB decodes on the repeater output:
Sync:+NXDN48 CB VOICE e:1
Sync:+NXDN48 CB VOICE e:5r
Sync:+NXDN48 CB VOICE e:11
Sync:+NXDN48 CB VOICE e:3
Sync:+NXDN48 CB VOICE
Sync:+NXDN48 CB VOICE e:1
Sync:+NXDN48 CB VOICE

........and CS decodes on the input frequency:
Sync:+NXDN48 CS VOICE
Sync:+NXDN48 CS VOICE e:1
Sync:+NXDN48 CS VOICE e:31
Sync:+NXDN48 CS VOICE e:27r
Sync:+NXDN48 CS VOICE e:2121
Sync:+NXDN48 CS VOICE e:4r3
Sync:+NXDN48 CS VOICE e:1
Sync:+NXDN48 CS VOICE e:2

However for this Icom setup it shows BOTH input and output as CS, eg.

Sync:+NXDN48 CS VOICE e:1
Sync:+NXDN48 CS VOICE e:1
Sync:+NXDN48 CS VOICE
Sync:+NXDN48 CS VOICE e:6r4r2
Sync:+NXDN48 CS VOICE
Sync:+NXDN48 CS VOICE
Sync:+NXDN48 CS VOICE e:11

In this particular example, I know that the portables are Kenwood NX220s but the repeater is an Icom.

Anyone know if this is a one off or normal behavior?

Wow 2 months and no reply?

On our local Ham repeater (Icom) I copy "cs" on input and simplex from an Icom ht and "cb" on the repeater output
I will monitor our SO who uses kenwood 6.25 on occasion and reply back on those results.

So after many months I think i've got this one figured...the operator was actually using the frequency in both simplex and repeater mode. As I was so close to the transmitters I couldnt distinguish between the two. The ICOM repeater on a Kenwood setup was a red herring.
