    v44 (beta)

    • Smaller fixes and enhancements

    v43 (beta)

    • Added cross mode send DGID to network setting, and change from transceiver (applies to FCS and YSFReflector connectors in cross mode):

      You can switch the cross mode DGID sent to the network by making a short **group call** to 4000 + the desired DGID number. For example, if you want to
      set the cross mode DGID to 25, start a short group call 4025. To reset the DGID to 0, start a short group call to 4000.

      You can switch the cross mode DGID sent to the network using a D-STAR® transceiver by entering DTMF code *#* followed by the desired DGID. For example,
      if you want to set the cross mode DGID to 25, enter DTMF #25. If you only enter *#* then the cross mode DGID will be reset to 0.
