The D-Star CCS (Call Connection Service) is a newly added feature of the G4KLX ircDDB Gateway Software that allows you to call any station, anywhere in the world, by transmitting a four digit code into your D-Star radio’s DTMF keypad...
This new method of callsign routing uses the ircDDB database to locate the last repeater or gateway that the station last used. It then connects all parties together, so that everyone can hear both sides of the conversation, without interrupting any QSOs that are already in progress, and it even works if the repeaters are connected to a reflector - The system allows the station receiving the call to just reply, without having to use the Icom R > CS key to program the return path.
The CCS system was developed by DG1HT, the developer of the DCS reflector system and a member of the DV-RPTR team. For more information and registration, see http://xreflector.net. This will be added to GB7HU when we are able to visit the site update the ircDDB Gateway software.
