    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Wondering what these default settings are exactly? TRX-1

DSP Level 64
ADC Gain +0db
DAC Gain -4db


Relate to DMR or P25?

They apply to anything digital, so both DMR and P25.

DSP has to do with some threshold that the digital signal processor utilizes. I'm a little vague on the specifics. Some report that modifying it can improve performance on simulcast sites, for instance. There was a thread recently to post DSP values that people like, but I'm not sure it caught steam. I haven't noticed any huge breakthroughs playing with the setting, but I have not tried playing with it since the DMR firmware.

ADC is the analog to digital converter gain. This is the most import of the three settings. It allows you to adjust how "hot" the audio is that the DSP receives. Generally, you want to be 0 or below. I am not aware of any instance where someone was helped with a positive value.

DAC is the digital to analog converter after the signal processor. It converts the digital audio back to an analog signal that can drive the speaker. Essentially, it is a global "auto gain control" for digital audio vs. analog audio. Modify this if digital calls are louder/softer than analog calls across the board. There are also several other settings to account for this problem.

Hope this helps.

Strange. My TRX-2 and 1098 software (newest v2.11) have the old -2/+2 range again. The 1088 software (older v2.7) still has the new -10/+2 range. They expanded it a while back.

What happens when you set it through the radio?

Awhile back, someone reported some weird stuff in that regard. I'll try to dig up the old thread.
