Zello is a popular push-to-talk (PTT) communication app that allows users to communicate with each other using their mobile devices or computers. Crosslinking allows Zello channels to connect to other communication systems, such as two-way radios, telephone systems, or other PTT apps. Here are four easy steps to make a Zello crosslink:
- Choose your crosslinking hardware: You will need to choose a crosslinking device that is compatible with Zello. There are many options available, including hardware devices specifically designed for crosslinking, as well as software-based solutions.
- Install and configure the crosslinking device: Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to install and configure the crosslinking device. This may involve connecting the device to your computer or other communication systems and configuring the settings to work with Zello.
- Configure Zello: Open the Zello app on your device and go to the channel that you want to crosslink. Click on the channel settings button and then click on “Crosslinking.” Enter the IP address and port number of the crosslinking device and configure any other settings as necessary.
- Test the crosslink: Once you have configured the crosslinking device and Zello, test the crosslink to make sure that it is working correctly. You can do this by communicating with other users on the Zello channel and verifying that your messages are being transmitted to the other communication system.
It is important to note that crosslinking may be subject to regulatory restrictions, depending on your location and the communication systems involved. Make sure you are complying with any applicable laws and regulations before setting up a crosslink.
