Re: Slot, talk group and reflector usage on BM

Thanks for replying. TG655 has some use; I didn't want to rain on their braai with incorrect assumptions, no matter how easy going people are here :)

Does that mean they could key TG655 on S1 and it would route traffic to S1 if I were using the reflector via TG9 S2?

Slot, talk group and reflector usage on BM

I'm comfortable with the user protocol on Phoenix; TG"s have a priority swayed towards local, you migrate to UA TG's on the fixed slots. It is rigidly fixed but simple to understand. But on BM to me is less clear and I've not found much documentation to illustrate its usage. I'm currently in Jo...

Re: Dual Band Tier 2 DMR VHF/UHF Thread

See Amazon now have 'fulfilled by' which should avoid the issues with HMC&E charges.

Re: Dual Band Tier 2 DMR VHF/UHF Thread

One flaw someone has exposed in the GD-77 is the apparent USB charger actually puts out 12v. It uses standard USB connectors so not one you'd want to leave laying around for someone to plug in to their expensive iPhone. The CPS doesn't look too bad, although having a password to fully unlock it is n...

There's this one too, which certainly seems too good to be true. https://www.radioddity.com/radioddity-gd-77-dual-band-dual-time-slot-digital-two-way-radio-walkie-talkie-dmr-compatible-with-motrobo-tier-1-tier-2-programming-cable.html Some videos on YouTube look quite promising, if it arrives at the...

Re: Greetings from Durham

You could in addition configure the radio to directly access DMR repeaters as well as the DV4. Some repeaters are local only, and some are on different networks. So although the talkgroup numbers may be the same, they carry different voice traffic. In this way it could open you up to non-networked r...

Re: Greetings from Durham

I think once you get your head around it not too bad. There are two slots on the repeater so it can hold two conversations simultaneously instead of one. Each slot can carry many talkgroups, which in the commercial world would separate the cleaners from security from maintenance. It gives the users ...

Re: Retevis RT2 Dual Band DPMR

Believe the set to be DPMR, tier 1 single slot and not tier 2 dual slot. Same standard they use on PMR446 digital mode. Would be compatible back to back but no use through a repeater nor compatible with the DMR standards the RT-3 uses.

Re: PD-365 programming to save physical channel positions

Ok thanks Mike, I've had a success but I'm not sure why. I have been running the CPS and upgrades on a MacBook using Virtualbox and XP Pro. This has worked fine for everything up until now on the PD-365 and CS750. Having tried the downgrade on a Win7 netbook though, it has worked successfully, both ...

Re: PD-365 programming to save physical channel positions

Ok doesn't look like you can go back firmwares :shock: The firmware updater restarts the radio following the update then reads the codeplug, updating it on the PC and writing it back. If you try to flash an older firmware, the flash goes okay but the radio fails to restart (presumably when loading t...
