Re: Can't get into firmware update mode, has anything changed?

Worn out buttons? Black works perfectly, blue requires a firmer push, always has, but it's working perfectly fine for showing Last Heard, works 100% of the time when using the radio. But booting into firmware update mode right now is maybe 1 of 10 times. Thats strange Possibly a bug in the official...

Re: CPS Updated

BTW, in case anyone else has created desktop shortcuts like me and is confused; the latest version (at some point?) is installing to a different path, so I personally kept launching the old version by accident and wondering where the language support is.

Can't get into firmware update mode, has anything changed?

No matter what I do, black button seems to work fine when booted, blue works fine, but I can not boot into firmware mode holding both while powering on, it just boots right to the radio like I wasn't pushing any buttons. Am I missing something? If it matters, current FW is 20:41:56, June 3, 0690263 ...

Re: Modification of the Radioditty charger with "TP5100" card at $ 2.

I put the new tp15100 module with the original 500mAh charger of the radioddity DG-77 and my surprise charges in only 3 hours, before with the original cpb it took 6 hours + - . From which I deduce that that original PCB or board absorbed part of the energy or limited it. You don't want to use the ...

I should be getting the radio in a few hours. Do you have a list of what keys I need to press to enable speech and sounds? I found the sounds instructions in the forum, but I can't find the instructions for turning on the sounds.

Re: Hotspot mode - Apparently stuck in TX

Ha, so today on 2W on a modest antenna on the roof at 30ft, which is about 20ft HAAT for a 1 mile radius, I had looked at heywhatsthat and noticed a spot I know well has a big red blob for line of sight, and it's right at 5.5 miles away. I brought the big antenna and my homebrew yagi and drove into ...

Re: Modification of the Radioditty charger with "TP5100" card at $ 2.

I have a source from a charger liitokala 500 that gives 12.5volt and 2amper. Something that if I have won is to avoid the annoying noise that is generated when the battery 100% is above 8.3 + -volt (it generated a small hum the amplifier) . Thank you Sounds like you have this issue, which some do. ...

Re: Modification of the Radioditty charger with "TP5100" card at $ 2.

I have just installed the tp5100 but in output it gives me 8.3 volt Is it normal? Or should I give 8.4? If I use the original charger of only 500ma, will the battery charge well? Obviously it will slow it down. My intention is to have an original 500ma charger for the night and 12v 2a for the day a...

Re: Hotspot mode - Apparently stuck in TX

I have a cheapie magmount antenna I use on my hotspot to get the RF away from my desk, use it for both my mmdvm board and the GD77. Haven't had any issues like this, so I guess it's far enough away. I have also run the GD77 on my primary antenna at the house, and on 2W I get solid coverage on the ba...
