San Antonio has a dedicated XLX Reflector for hams to use in the area. The idea of the reflector is to have a single place for all local repeaters to connect to or for remote users to connect inbound. The reflector currently has multimode enabled, meaning it can be accessed via D-Star, DMR, and System Fusion. Here are the 3 ways to connect:
- DMR: Brandmeister 310217
- Fusion: YSF “US SATTEST” (Current test name)
- D-Star: via the reflector directly

How to connect to the reflector on your D-Star Radio.
Because XRF is not available in radios, like REF, you will have to use the “UR” field to link. Use any of the following to connect.
The reflector can be accessed from most anywhere. Those using an Icom hardware based repeater, may not be able to connect because they do not support the DExtra linking protocol. In which case a hotspot will be required. The reflector has a realtime web dashboard to see other nodes and users connected and to what module they are connected to.
