ReCall user interface

ReCall is a function to record a voice message from the station, and then dispatch the recorded message as a Group Call. The recorded message is a temporary message, which is discarded when the Group Call is finished.

To initiate a group call using the recall function:

  1. Dial the recall number (e.g. 9084 or 765 + 84)
  2. Press M-key, record message
  3. Release M-key, listen to the recording. Messages shorter than 0.5 seconds are discarded.
  4. Press 8 to dispatch the message, M to do a new recording, 7 to hear again, or C to cancel

Using the recall function from a telephone:

  1. Dial the recall number (e.g. 9084)
  2. Press the *-button, record message
  3. Press the #-button to stop the recording and listen to the message
  4. Press 8 to dispatch the message, * to do a new recording, 7 to hear again, or hang up to cancel

With “AutoM” and "CHookDispatch" flags

Simplified, but less flexible user inferface if “AutoM” and "CHookDispatch" flags are set. (set Param 2 = 544).

  • No waiting for initial M-press / '*'. Recording starts right away.
  • '#' or '7' must then be used to stop recording and do pre-listen. Otherwise same as normal mode. M-Pres is required restart a recording.
  • 0 to delete recording, cancel

Simplest sequence is then:

  1. Dial access number to group
  2. record message
  3. C-pres / on-hook to dispatch.

PA control bitmap

Param2 is used as a control bitmap. Also used in Param1 of PA activation, multi-step.

BitNo Weight Value Name Description Recall Prestored
0 1 GoGroupCall 0 After the SVP message playback ends the group is disconnected and the initiator station goes back to idle (if not bit 4:1)(default). Y Y
1 After the SVP message playback ends, the group and initiator station proceed to normal Group Call mode. (Use M-key and talk into the group, VP timer will start for use as group call "Meet me" reply time out. Can be used for replacing the Gong with a custom SVP message for normal groupcall.) This function will not work in combination with LoopEndless(6). For using MeetMe Feature you have to set Bit2:1
1 2 DiscPlayback 0 Initiator Station is allowed to disconnect during message playback without stopping the message to the group.(default). Y Y

If initiator station disconnect during the playout to group, the message is terminated immediately

2 4 MeetMe 0 "Meet me" (99) is not working and will not affect the SVP message or initiator station during SVP play (default). (If BIT0:1 "meet me" can be used after svp play finished) Y Y
1 "Meet me" during SVP play will disconnect the SVP message and establish connection to initiator. If initiator is disconnected due to AutoDisconnect(3) or CHookDispatch(5) "Meet me" will not work.
3 8 AutoDisconnect 0 Initiator station listen to the SVP message together with the rest of the group (Default). Y Y
1 Initiator station disconnect automatic before gong and SVP message start to play. For Recall it means that 8 dispatches the message, while the initiator is disconnected. ( No "meet me" function, group access level is not checked, event handler "conversation outgoing" is related to station 1. Same behaviour as $GROUP_MSG.)
