Using the convenient Digital C4FM feature
About the Digital Group ID (DG-ID) feature
1. Digital Group ID (DG-ID) function allows communications with only the specific group
members using the two-digit ID numbers. The desired DG-ID number from 00 to 99 is
set in advance by all the group members. This ID number may be set separately for
transmit and receive, when the same ID number is set for both transmit and receive,
only group members with the same ID number will be heard. This feature may be used
to communicate only with group members that have the same DG-ID number. The GM
function may also be utilized to automatically monitor whether or not group member
stations with the same DG-ID number are operating within communication range.
The DG-ID number 00 detects signals with all ID numbers. Normally setting the ID
number to “00” for both transmit and receive will permit reception of the signals from
all other stations using the digital C4FM mode, regardless of the transmit DG-ID
number settings of the other stations.
Also note that when the receive DG-ID number of your transceiver is set to a DG-ID
number other than “00”, received signals that do not have the same DG-ID number
may not be heard.
2. When accessing the C4FM digital repeater controlled by the DG-ID number, set the
transmit DG-ID number of the FT-70DR/DE to that of the repeater input. Even in that
case, if the receive DG-ID number of the FT-70DR/DE is set to “00”, all the downlink
signals from the repeater may be received.
