    Bring an M7100 back from the dead?

    For reference, this is what RadioMaint reads out as the current state of the radio: I have a feeling the fact that the radio isn't totally dead is at least a glimmer of hope that things can be recovered.

    Bring an M7100 back from the dead?

    Hi all! I've got an M7100 in a pretty bad state. Was backing up the radio code via RadioMaint when my PC bluescreened. Now it's missing its tracking and feature data and I can't even write in the default tracking file or a basic feature string. I can still read & write the SW/DSP, and have...

    BCD996p2 Not Getting NJICS Control Channel

    At the risk of going completely off topic (and maybe this warrants a new thread) why is that the case when squelch can be set so much higher? For example - in my specific situation I scan airband and railroad frequencies in addition to a few trunking systems. For whatever reason (possibly a...

    BCD996p2 Not Getting NJICS Control Channel

    So I would still consider that to be a bug. I can't imagine intended functionality is to require the squelch to be set that low just to acquire a site. It's a bit of a pain to have to manually bring the squelch down to 1, wait for the site to acquire, and bring it back up every time I start my...

    XTL5000 consolette programming cable

    You do not need a junction box for RCH3000 or MC3000 operation; you can wire straight to the radio body's DB25. I would imagine the same signal lines can be found on the consolette DB25 and the wiring would be the same. Just eliminates an extra point of failure in the setup. See: RCH3000 -...

    BCD996p2 Not Getting NJICS Control Channel

    I don't know if I would call it "normal" but thanks for the clarification. I typically have to keep squelch around 7-8 due to local noise sources and distant signals that don't come in too well in the mobile. Due to scanning RR & Airband channels I have a lot of CSQ channels to scan. It seems to...

    BCD996p2 Not Getting NJICS Control Channel

    I've seen this issue as well and I believe it might be a firmware bug, or possibly something weird going on with freescan. I'm on the latest firmware as well. I've got a BCD996P2 with a couple local P25 systems programmed up. On first boot, with squelch set to ~8 or so, the scanner will skip...

    NX800 Out of Band

    My bad, my brain put a 5 in front of the 800. I'm assuming my answer still applies but I can't guarantee that 100% since I only have experience in the NX5xxx line.

    NX800 Out of Band

    I've gone the other way, putting 470+ frequencies in a 380-470 model and it seems to work fine. I'd imagine the other way would work just as well. KPGD1N should take the frequencies and just tell you they're out of band.

    NX-5000 Series, Q&A, Info, and details

    Does anyone know how selecting a DMR talkgroup behaves on the radios? For instance, I'd like to have a single personality for each of the timeslots of a local repeater with selectable groups on each. Right now I've got a single personality for each timeslot, set up with "selcall on PTT" and set...

    OP25 Stops Decoding

    I also tried piping the audio through UDP but since I'm not super familiar with that approach I gave up before getting too far. Mostly because this seemed to work but if it dies again I'll be giving that option another go.

    OP25 Stops Decoding

    I think I might've found a solution, albeit this could just be another fluke. I kept everything else the same and changed the audio device in OP25 from "loop0" to "loopout0" because I figured there might be a conflict between Darkice and OP25 which both use the same device name. This seems to...

    OP25 Stops Decoding

    Sorry for taking so long to get back. I somehow got the system working fantastically for almost two weeks with zero issues. Had a power loss a couple days ago and now we're back to the same issue. Nothing has changed in the setup but once again OP25 only outputs audio for a couple minutes before...

    OP25 Stops Decoding

    Interesting update: evidently it might not be a problem with OP25 after all. Shutting down the darkice source seemed to make decoding work flawlessly for well over a half hour. I'm guessing it might be either a sample rate issue between OP25 and Darkice or something going on within the snd_aloop...

    OP25 Stops Decoding

    Hi all I've got OP25 up and running on my ubuntu box, paired with a simple snd_aloop->darkice setup for private streaming. I'm running in to an issue where OP25, despite showing that it's still tuning and receiving traffic, stops outputting audio. No errors are displayed even with verbosity...

    NX-5000 Series, Q&A, Info, and details

    Still working on my DMR programming for my 5800. I've got group calls working via menu selection, but is there a way to keep the selected group call for future PTT presses as well? After I initiate a group call the radio defaults back to whatever it was set to originally.

    NX-5000 Series, Q&A, Info, and details

    Is there any good reference out there for programming DMR roaming? I'm working on a codeplug while my radio is in the mail and there is barely any info out there on what works vs what doesn't. My ideal setup would be a roaming channel for each timeslot with the ability to select the active TG...

    LaPorte County

    I'm down at school but I've got a remote SDR set up at home in Michigan City monitoring the control channel there. I can get talkgroup usage and other site info through unitrunker but unfortunately I can't listen to any talkgroups without a second SDR.

    Hoosier SAFE-T Thread 2013-2018

    Was sent a picture earlier today of an APX base radio at Marquette HS in Michigan City. The radio was on the system, with full RSSI, and on the "Marquette" talkgroup in the Schools zone. Looks like things are moving ahead.

    Hoosier SAFE-T Thread 2013-2018

    Checked out 700 & 800 bands and didn't find any new SAFE-T CC's. Found Summit, Valpo, and IDOC Michigan City but that was it. This is with a unity gain laird 800 antenna in a second story window, but considering one of the simulcast sites is supposed to be in Michigan City only a couple miles...
