Due to the multiple VoIP modes and the fact that several nodes can be connected and disconnected, there is not a simple DTMF connect and disconnect command. Below is the list of the important DTMF commands when using the KY4KY ALLSTAR system.

WARNING: Please Do NOT connect a bunch of large nodes together without permission. The number of nodes and the quality of the connections are limited by the bandwidth of our internet connection.

*3 <node number>

Connect to an AllStar node number. Ex. *340894 connect to AllStar node 40894 (audio test server). To add more nodes to the connection, just continue the sequence. For a current list of active ALLSTAR nodes go to https://allstarlink.org/nodelist.php

*1 <node number>

Disconnect an AllStar node number. If you dialed a bunch of nodes, but only want to disconnect one, use this command.

*33<node number>

Connect to an EchoLink node number. You will need to look up the node Number, not call sign for this to work.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Echolink Node numbers must always be 6 digits long. If the node number is only 5 or 4 digits long, 1 or 2 zeros will NEED to be placed before the node number for it to work.

*13<node number>

Disconnect an EchoLink node number. For example, a disconnect from the EchoLink test server would require the commands *13 009999

*2<node number>

Connect to a node in Monitor mode (receive only). The node will not hear any transmissions of yours, but you will hear everything from the node (use with caution).


Probably one of the most important commands, this will disconnect all links (AllStar or Echolink).
