Default no color code showing

I put a single site DMR in and hear audio, get TG and user IDs and see slot 1 indicated but no color code.
Any ideas? It's 7K60FXD and E so it's probably Trbo.

436 with 1.25.00 firmware, didn't see one before the upgrade on this system but have seen CCs on other systems with older firmware versions.

A DMR transmitter must send a color code, you can't skip that function.
Is it a weak station, maybe bad reception due to simulcast?
On the 536 you can see the data errors by pushing function and then the vol dial and as long as the F is lit you can turn the dial and adjust the threshold. Maybe the 436 also have some way of displaying data error rate.

Single site 4.75 miles at 451 MHz, my calculation says I should see about -55 dBm assuming 100' of 7/8" tx line and a 3 dB antenna for a 45 Watt xmtr. I'll put the spec an on it tomorrow to see how close I am.

I might program my radio to their freq and put a CC in each channel and scan to see what they are using.
