PSR AllStar Node #: 2462
To use your cell phone (or a land-line), away from the repeater, do the following:
1) Register as a 'Normal User' account and/or login using your FCC issued call at: https://allstarlink.org/.
2) Once you're logged in to AllStarLink.org, go to your Account Profile.
3) If your e-mail/call has been validated you will see "Your Callsign is Validated"; Make a note of the 10 digit Secure PIN Number (henceforth called PIN).
4) Calling into the node:
- Use phone (in Speaker mode) to [dial]: (763)230-0000 - When prompted [dial]: 2462# - [dial] 1 (for Node access) - [dial] PIN - [dial] 2 (for Function Operated Access) - You will be dialed in to the Node - Bring up the keypad on your phone (if cellular) - [dial] *99 to initiate PTT - Say what you want and clear w/ your call. - [dial] # when done speaking (to release PTT)
Remember to be in a noise-free environment as your mic will pick up more room noise in 'speaker mode' also try and remain 6-12" away from the mic, too close will over-mod and too far will be too hollow.
If willing, try programming the phone number, as a contact, into your mobile. In a dial-string you can add Pause (2 sec) and Wait (wait for you to click to continue dialing). It's been attempted (w/ success) on an iPhone as follows:
Name: PSR AllStar Number: 7632300000,,,,2462#;1;XXX,YYY,ZZZZ,,2
, = :02 second pause ; = wait (for human intervention) XXXYYYZZZZ = PIN
