You have to use the Uniden update software. http://info.uniden.com/twiki/pub/Uni...P_V3_03_00.zip

I am seeing a bit of a loss on P25 LSM systems. It was coming in quite nicely under 1.07.06. Now with 1.07.07 I am seeing a lot more errors in P25 voice quality. It still seems to prefer P25 Thresh Hold of 6 but there is definitely something funny with this firmware I may role back to .06 . It maybe atmospheric conditions tonight but I should be getting clearer audio than I am.

Well you know what they say, radio signals in the Chicago area are a bit like the weather. if it isn't great just wait 15 minutes LOL . Usually on my 325P2 Tower 101 and 149 (Dupage and Chi N/NWCD) are usually clear as day when I am sitting in my second floor office at my house. Tonight after installing the update things are getting a little more fluttery than usual. I have set the thresh hold (P25) to 6 and 7 ( it was usually best at 6 ) and both are acting similar in terms of audio. I have another 325 in my truck. So I guess I'll give them the side by side test tomorrow to if the old firmware on my second 325 makes things better or worse with a more definitive testing method.

Stupid question but is this update only if you have the DMR upgrade already?

Keep in mind that there was a CMEa day and a half ago so the atmosphere is going to be a bit goofy right now.

Does this firmware update address the Phase II control channel only searches not decoding voice?

I'm not seeing any improvement on patches, I still get dispatch on one channel and the reply on another. Also yeah why didn't they make the threshold permanent? That would have been really useful it still has to be set everytime i turn the damn thing on. Ugh!
