Operational Documents

All commands directed to a node take effect solely at that specific point in the network. These commands do not propagate to other nodes unless explicitly mandated. For instance, a command directed at the K5GVL repeater exclusively influences that node, and all ensuing responses are generated by that specific node.

Here are the fundamental guidelines:

  1. Every command must commence with a “Star” character (*).
  2. If a * is included in a command string, it triggers a decoder reset, initiating the decoding process from the last entered * character. This feature proves valuable in case of errors, allowing a fresh start.
  3. Decoding is terminated if the gap between digits exceeds a certain duration.

Available Functions:

  • *1 nnnn: Disconnect the specified link.
  • *3 nnnn: Connect to a specified node in transceiver mode.
  • *4 nnnn: Enter command mode on the specified node (refer below).
  • *70: Report system status for this node only.
  • *72: Report the last node to key up.
  • *73: Report system status for all nodes.
  • *80: Send station ID.
  • *81: Provide the time of day.

In the list above, nnnn represents the AllStar Link node number to connect to or disconnect from.

A comprehensive list of active Allstar nodes can be accessed at the provided location.

For Allstar connections, utilizing the *3 and *1 commands suffices.
