Default Astro Saber M3 OTAC Table

I recently acquired an astro saber model 3 model no. H04SDH9PW7AN, R05.60.00, DSP I06.50.02. I am using Astro CPS R05.03.00 and have programmed it successfully and radio works great. The issue I'm having is that I have programmed the OTAC table to different channels but the radio channel selector knob still just does channels 1-16, i can't seem to find out how to make it work

The channel selector only does 1-16.. You need to set up zones

OTACS, which is Over The Air Channel Steering, requires the infrastructure to be present to support that feature. So you can just ignore it. It's a feature of the LAPD radio system which I'm not sure if it's even used anymore.

If you want more than 16 channels in a Zone you'll need to add the Chan soft key.
