DMR2YSF Bridge and Kansas City Wide

For those who use a DMR radio and a hotspot connected to US-KCWIDE via the DMR2YSF bridge:

When someone transmits on Fusion using the VW (voice wide) mode, that transmission cannot be passed to DMR. VW mode is a full-bandwidth mode, and is not bridged to a half-bandwidth DMR channel. The Fusion DN mode is half-bandwidth, and bridges to DMR without any problem.

If you’re only hearing one side of a conversation, this is likely the reason.

    While in the office, I will occasionally click the listen button. Sometimes I hear a conversation, but only one side of the conversation. Any idea why this is?

    Hi, Ron!
    I’ve not heard this, but I can see how it might happen. The audio for Broadcastify is extracted from the monitor port on a Yaesu HRI-200 box on one of the Kansas City Wide nodes that’s hosted here at my house in Lee’s Summit. I guess I wouldn’t be surprised if Yaesu doesn’t pass along some of the non-Yaesu traffic we generate here in the room (Echolink, YSF).
    I’ll do some testing and see if I can find out what’s happening.
