    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation.

PSR 600 With Boot Loader 1.0

Is there anyone with a PSR 600 that has the early Boot Loader F1.0?

Interested in how it is working with a P25 system that is a Motorola CQPSK [apparently]

This would be the Ottawa Ontario P25 system: https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=8161
► [ this is not a phase II system as shown in the data base it is phase I ]
The reason I am asking is that my PSR600 as very poor audio decoding on this system.

It does however work well on this system: https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=2560

I realize that my boot loader is very early in the production line so there may not be many out there.

Thanks very much , Mike

Not surprised there are no comments on this due to the age of my PSR 600 with the old boot loader.
I wonder if the boot loader has anything to do with P25 audio decoding? [do not think it should]

I would still be interested in any comments from users as to the audio decoding quality they are experiencing using this model, and the type of P25 system they are listening to, regardless of the age of their PSR 600.

Thanks!

Hello,

The boot loader only affects the firmware file that is loaded. As far as I can tell GRE released similar application firmware versions for both the early and later bootloaders.

Thank you for the input. Yes I have the latest firmware loaded. It just does not like this version of P25.
The boot loader F1.0 gave me the ability to track EDACS provoice, which was very handy, sent the signal to DSD.
EDACS here is not used now, everything is on P25.
I can still listen to the new P25 system using my trusty old 396T, or DSD
