Some people have reported that under some circumstances the radio goes into permanent transmit on its own and gets very hot. I haven’t seen that on mine but I am watching out for it.
There is a problem in the CPS with setting up scanlists. Some channels are getting corrupted.
I expect there to be a fix for these problems soon, then it would be worth updating. However you would have to build your codeplug again (or at least modify it) as the layout has changed and old codeplugs won’t work with the new firmware.
Thanks for that Colin, I don't yet have the radio but a parcel did arrive at home today which may be it. I will keep your comments in mind.
Still waiting for GB7PY to come on air, I see that GB3PY now has the NoV for its frequency change so with luck it will be soon.
