Mandatory Command Codes

These are the mandatory command codes which all Allstar Link nodes must support to provide command code consistency to the users.

*1node Disconnect Link
*2node Connect link in monitor mode
*3node Connect link in transcieve mode
*4node Enter command mode on a remote node
*7 Local connection status

Notes

1. node is an Allstar Link node number
2. Node number zero (0) is shorthand for the last node operated on by a previous command
3. Monitor mode means listen to a node, but do not send any audio to it
4. Command mode means send all received DTMF digits to the node number specified (bypassing the local command decoder). Send # to exit command mode, and restore local command decoding.
