Hi Ramesh,

Hows it going? I think the OP may be trying to use DStar modulation (DV)
with a URI. If that's the case, the OP will find the 6 pin DIN interface on
the back of the radio will not suffice, as I believe that's for a TNC which
would only operate under FM mode, thus the beeping response.

The OP is welcome to correct me, but if this is indeed what you'd like to
do, you can't do it with an Icom radio, you'll need to build a modem. Look
for "homebrew DStar radios" on Google.
