We changed the call sign for the D-Star repeater KB3YBH to W3FDK. In that process, we had to rebuild the gateway from scratch. Because you have to build from scratch, all of our previous registrations are no longer in the system and are not able to be changed.
Your options are limited. Your callsign is still registered in the central system so you cannot re-register at a different gateway.
If you need to make changes you have to contact the D-star folks and have them remove your call sign and then re-register. We will update this FAQ with contact details once we know who they are.
This is an unfortunate consequence of changing a call sign for a D-Star repeater, there is not way to import the old database of users into a new call sign because you are already registered in the central database under the old call sign.
