Important Information for Reflector Operators – How to Connect to NXCore

The popularity of reflectors has grown by leaps an bounds in the past year. These reflectors give hotspot users a way to access NXDN talkgroups, and speak to other hotspot users. However, there are some important steps you must take, to ensure your reflector/talkgroup can also be heard on NXDN repeaters throughout the country.

STEP ONE: Configure your reflector’s NXDNreflector.ini file
Locate the Icom Network section of your .ini file, and configure it as follows:

[Icom Network]
Enabled=1
Address=flicom.nxcore.org
TGEnable= <your talkgroup ID here>
# TGDisable=3456
Debug=0

Any lines that start with a “#” can be left as-is. That symbol signifies a line that is commented-out, and will be ignored. Restart your reflector when done.

If you have any other lines that begin with “Address,” you must put a pound sign at the beginning of those lines. Failure to do so may cause conflicts in the network. Unused address lines can simply be deleted, if desired.

STEP TWO: Notify the Core admins
NXCore must recognize your IP address, to be accepted on the network. Send an E-Mail to Jason, KD4ACG, at jtriolo@verizon.net. Provide your talkgroup number, name, and IP address. It will be added in 24-48 hours.
