  12. The guys up in the Tulsa area that run the conversion between protocols have had some equipment failures recently. I would keep trying it and if you have a Yaesu Fusion radio or a D-Star radio, you might test the link by seeing if you hear yourself on either YSF or D-Star. I sometimes hear someone on the local OKC 443.275 Wires-X/YSF repeater attempting to use what sounds like DMR. Is that you possibly. Dave de WD5G
