The new PPS software for phase 2 doesn’t look any different than the old software at least so far.

I've not seen (to the naked eye) any difference either.

My G4 arrived at Unication earlier today and they have already sent me a E-Mail stating they have completed the upgrade and they are shipping it back to me UPS with a tracking number. Boy those guys are fast!!

Just got my G5 back from the Phase 2 upgrade as well and I'm pleased with the new V1.00-T08 firmware. They definitely changed something with the EQ to the speaker on this firmware as it sounds a little clearer (although hard to really quantify how much "clearer").

Turn around in Arlington was super quick (same day) just as others reported. Shipping there and back was kinda slow - I opted for FedEx ground there and Unication did UPS ground back which took ~6 business days round trip from WI to TX... but overall I can't complain as that's just how ground shipping goes and has little to do with Unication.

I'm also wondering exactly what got programmed to this thing in Arlington. Did a "fuse" get set to allow Phase 2 usage with current/future firmware? What happens if you program the V1.00-T08 firmware to a non-Phase 2 upgraded unit? Does it just not pick up Phase 2? Wish there was a way I could confirm I'm actually getting Phase 2 in (my area is mostly Phase 1 but occasional Phase 2)

Is there any chance Unication will have the ability to do this upgrade at Hamvention? Just in case I'm going to wait until after then to send mine in. I don't need Phase II at the moment, but my firmware is a few versions old, and I see some reports of clearer audio.

I have two G4's and sent one in for the Phase II upgrade. It returned with the new firmware V1.00-T08.

With both G4 pagers monitoring the same Phase I busy Ohio MARCS system talk group the PII updated G4 does sound noticeably better to my ears and most voices are easier to understand. Mainly the audio sounds more natural due to the high pitched hiss on most transmissions is mostly gone.

With the high pitch noise gone the audio is more natural sounding, especially when in the car or listening to weak or low voice audio transmissions.

For me, the audio improvement alone was worth the upgrade.

A reminder to all, buying and selling is to be conducted in the Classifieds section of RadioReference, not in the forums.

I just happened to see this post today. Did Unication send an email to current owners? I never received anything.

Yes - I suspect you had to submit your request via their webpage to receive notifications (at least, I recall doing that).

I did not get an email from Unication re: the Phase 2 upgrade being released... only found out about that when browsing the forums here.....which was kinda surprising seeing I believe I was on "the list" with Unication (see below).

My last email from Unication before I purchased the upgrade on 4/23/18 was from David Oney on 1/18/18 regarding the V0.93-0.17K (Phase I) firmware being released that month.... so pretty sure I was on "the list".

Same for me. Pretty sure I was registered for updates.

Either something is wrong with the site or they pulled this promo.

I see the page is still there and says special pricing until 5/31 but as you said, yes, something doesn't look right....

I was going to pull the trigger based on the Phase I user feedback alone. Probably going to be a long time until TDMA shows up locally. Maybe I will send them an email...

Seems the best thing to do at this point is to contact Unication directly.
