UP4DAR remote reboot when get locked

  • Hello Denis,


    in last 4 month I get UP4DAR locked two time.
    The problem is that repeater works ine but network get locked, UP4DAR do not comunicate anymore and I havo way to reboot it by configurator.


    I need to drive to the repeater https://www.qrz.com/db/IR6UCO then is enough to reboot the board by softkey.
    There is a way to reboot it from RF via URCALL or could you take in mind that for further release ?

    The problem is also existing in OE7 at some repeater sites with UP4DAR controllers. As solution we use a webswitch (like http://info.kmtronic.com/lan-relays.html) or GSM-switch to power-cycle the UP4DAR. Up to now we found no explanation, it doesn't seem to be a problem of runtime (like a buffer overflow), the problem appears after 4 months or also after 2 weeks.


    Up to now no RF-reboot is implemented in the OS firmware.

  • Hello Bernd,


    many thanks for your quick reply.
    I put the same item yesterday in my eBay basket :-)


    I think is best solution and more reliablr, for sure I will buy 2 remote switch as my idea is to replace the old D-Star controller of my second repeater with an UP4DAR ... it works much better of any other modem in commerce, especially with weak and fading signals.
