Default G5 Questions

I apologize for anything here that has been asked. I've had my radio about a month Doing fine with most basic programs, but I still have some questions. Any help is appreciated.


1.) Bluetooth Operation. I see where it is and have tried to connect to a speaker and my car. Didn't seem to work. Does it have to be to a wireless headset only? Works fine with a wireless headset.

2.) When adding a P25 conventional frequency, it asks me for a talkgroup? How does this work? Does someone have a step-by step instruction for this? I've tried to piece it together from other RR posts bu I am still not getting this one?

4.) How can I make new wav files for the "programmed announcements?

5.) After programming two Phase II systems I can get the voice traffic, but only after enduring a piercing squealing sound at the beginning of each transmission? Any ideas on this?

Thank you

1. Bluetooth never worked well for me. Lots of 'call disconnected' in my car, with every transmission.

2. Use Talkgroup 1 and/or 65535 (decimal). #1 is the general talkgroup used, by default, for P25 conventional in most instances; 65535 is hexF7E or receive-all talkgroups.

Troymail is a G4/G5 expert user. I'll let him and others talk about your #3 and #4 questions.

I can't say what the "magic" is - I've gotten it to work on a few different headsets but not some other devices.

Every one I've programmed was with TG 1 (found that based on what a scanner was reporting for the TGID) but I suppose it could be something else.... I don't think I ever tried the wildcard (65535) but it's worth trying.

Try TextToWav

Do you have a tone alert set for those talkgroups? Set it to None.

Thanks Troymail.

Guess I値l keep trying on the Bluetooth.

I値l try text to wav.

I知 still not getting the convention frequency thing to work. I知 talking about the screen where you select the frequency, go through everything else and then it痴 asking for the talkgroup. Which was entered on the other screen where all the talkgroup are.

Thanks.

Make sure you've added the P25 Conventional protocol in tab D3 -- this gives you an additional column for conventional TGs in tab D4... add a TG 1 (conventional).

Then you can create a monitor mode knob in D5 and assign frequency, protocol, NAC, etc. -- the conventional talkgroups to choose from will be listed at the bottom of that panel.

The G4/G5 only work with Bluetooth v2.1 or below. I cannot get it to connect directly to my car's Bluetooth. I use this:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01FDI8VBI...v_ov_lig_dp_it

The G4/G5 will pair with it. I use a cable to plug it into my car's Aux jack. You could also plug it into a powered speaker at home. Unfortunately, it frequently goes out of stock at Amazon.
