Default G5 recording

Is there a way to have the G5 record when I press a button? Say a big call comes out and I want to record the entire thing, any way to do this? I've not really found it in the PPS

You can set the channel to record in PPS for a particular talk group, but it will record all the time. You have to select 'Voice Storage' in the (D4) 'Group Id Setting', the (D5) 'Zone and Channel Setting', and the (D7) 'Voice Message Recording Limit'. It has a maximum 10 minute limit per recording.

It was designed to record dispatches for playback to confirm dispatched info. I record all my fire dispatch channels in case I miss something in the original dispatch message.

And to continue - you press that button on top of the knob position switch to play back, in reverse chronological order, the recorded transmissions. However, any new transmissions will interrupt your recorded playback. There is also free software (comes with firmware updates) that allows one to download the recordings to a computer, but I have not used that (yet).

You have to set the channels to record in the PPS.

Under which Letter/Number? I don't see it in frequency settings (D2) and I can in D5 when in monitor mode, I can select voice storage (all). When in D5 and in any "scan" mode, the only settings in voice storage are off and ID match. I'm getting stuck at this point, ID match is selected but I guess I don't have the ID matched.

Look back up to post number 2. He gave detailed information.
D2 is for conventional frequencies. Are you trying to record audio on a trunking talk group or a conventional frequency?

I too am having difficulty setting up the voice recording of a conventional channel, as D4 appears to be only for trunked talk groups. Does anyone have this figured out?

The conventional channel WILL record when it is the ONLY channel being listened to. If I have any scan mode on a knob, I only get the choice to record for "ID match" not all and as a result nothing records.

Is there any way to turn off the annoying beep at the end of a transmission when playing back audio? Also it's cutting off the end of the transmission on playback.

I can't possibly be the only one with this issue. Trying to listen the the recordings is useless.

There is a setting in the PPS to change the notification tone volume.

I have several G4 units and yes they do get cut off at the end of recordings.
I turned the alert volume down so when my play back happens the beep tone is barely audible.

If I have alert tone set to silent, I still get that annoying tone at the beginning of each recording, but not the actual transmission....

Same, but with G5. So there's no fix?

Has anyone tried to just call the support # on the PPS software and ask? I'm about to take that plunge.
