Re: On "Profiteering" and Free Software

To the OP on this thread, I don't think Roger was saying that he was going to rescind the code that was released under GPL (which you implied). I didn't mean to imply that. Read on for a somewhat clearer ideas. I was not suggesting that existing versions would or could be removed. I could tell that...

On "Profiteering" and Free Software

See the announcement post for context. We may be overreacting. There are many operators who might rather pay to have someone else install a firmware than install one themselves, and 20 GBP (about 26 USD / 36 AUD) doesn't sound like an entirely unreasonable amount to charge for that service. It's abo...

Re: Changing Talkgroups

That depends on the network, and on how the repeater is configured, and not on the radio features.

Re: Ability to open the squelch of CTCSS or DCS is enabled??

The UI is already probably one of the most complex of any HT, mainly because of the huge range of functionality available - probably far more than any similar commercial HT, so squeezing in extra functionality onto any of the buttons is going to be tricky. A major difference between OpenGD77 and co...

Re: Ability to open the squelch of CTCSS or DCS is enabled??

We may be able to use the Blue button (aka SK2) for this. It has another function if pressed when there is an incoming DMR signal on a different TG to the one the radio is already set to. So there may be some conflict with that. But perhaps we can change the function that sets the Tx TG to the curr...

Re: DCS audio cuts out

Although the AT1846S can be configured to use one of its GPIO connections as a squelch indication pin, I know that none of the GPIO pins on the AT1846S are connected to the mircocontroller in the GD77 (or DM-1801 or RD-5R). So the AT1846S would still need to be polled even if some sort of internal ...

Re: DCS audio cuts out

any setup will do as long you use opengd77 radios, set rx and tx any ctcss and very important you mouth need to touch the radio so you can do "overmodulation" and say aaaa or something very loud. i have described about this setup many times. i just feal no one is listening me how to reproduce this....

Re: DCS audio cuts out

I compared versions Jul 31 2020 and the new one (Aug 30 2020) on Baofeng DM-5R Plus. The new version tolerates overdeviation better than the old one, but there are still some cuts when receiving such a signal. The signal had a CTCSS tone. thanks for the fix, however: We tested on new radios, same t...

Re: Upgrading the flash chip

In a perfect world all of the DMR networks would support Talker Alias, but that is sadly not the case. Now if Pi-Star had the ability to inject TA data into the DMR stream, that would be a great help. My openSPOT2 does this, but it's no use on the air on the C-bridge network here in the Pacific Nor...

Re: DCS audio cuts out

I reworked Riku's patch and submitted it again as https://github.com/rogerclarkmelbourne/OpenGD77/pull/727 There are builds for GD-77 and DM1801 if people want to see if it helps (based on the development branch). If it does help alleviate this problem, please comment on GitHub if you can, or here i...
