Smile Success at last!!

Finally success at last! I do not know exactly what I did to possibly impact a successful key code entries session. This time I powered on the 536 and selected the menu DMR upgrade key code entry window. Very slowly and carefully sight checked each scrolled entry to the key entry's completion. I pressed "E" and instead of the "Input Processing Error" message, "Processing Please Wait" displayed and subsequently a message similar to "Update Properly Installed". Obviously, I did something wrong but I am not sure exactly what it was.

Thanks again to everyone who took time trying to help me. I was so excited to get a good DMR update processed I haven't thought yet about checking out the area DMR activity with the 534. Since in my area the two major two way radio installers are Motorola affiliated, 95% of central Virginia SDR users are MOTOTRBO.

Start here to see what is in use in or near your area: Digital Frequency Search

There is also an import option to bring the data intro Sentinel.

Code finally successfully installed. Tnx.

Smile DMR databases

Thanks, I am familiar with that database and the import options. I use ARC536PRO for programing my 536. I imported my 996XT files, edited them as FLs and wrote them to my 536. I also have maintained a VA frequency database since 1985 for the common emission modes analog/P25 P1/P2, plus DMR and NXDN.

I am in the process doing a partial master file reconciliation and have been able to flag about 14,000 expired licenses so far which I removed from the master file and saved as a separate "Expired" file. We still have some radio users who continue operating on expired licenses. It is a "snapshot" moment in time but it permits me to remove a big chunk of "clutter" from the master file.

I do FCC updates for Virginia weekly. The majority of DMR licenses in Virginia typically are analog and MOTOTRBO emissions. MOTORTRBO only licenses typically are noticeably smaller in number.

Thanks again.

John
