Re: HOw to put my THumb DVS in to action?

Justin Mann

So forgive me for asking, is there any kind of a cap that needs to come off of the thumb DV before it can connect to a usb port?  The device looks identical to any flash drive that I’ve seen, but without using any force, I’m curious how the cap is removed, or is thre some kind of pigtail that connects?

Hi all,
So I’ve now received my THumb Dvs, and I’d like to get them in use on my xlx reflector, xlx094.  Ideally I’d like to have this all linked up to the Texas i35 system, (FCS00330, so that anybody using D-star, or Dmr, can come out on the Texas i35 system.  Where do I start now that I have these devices?  Xlx94 is hosted in a data center, and the ip address is  There is also, I think, though I have not played with it in over a year a YSf reclector of 75749, but it does not appear as though it goes anywhere just yet.  Any help y’all can give I’d appreciate.
