Re: My radio discharges the battery very fast

Display of battery percentage is of battery voltage and not battery capacity. Its not possible to determine the power consumption by the radio as it does not have the necessary hardware, which mobile phones have, to monitor the current being taken from the battery, to model the probably percentage ...

Re: My radio discharges the battery very fast

Did another run today, very similar numbers to yesterday really. Lower at first, but I think because likely I assumed 100% at first yesterday when it really wasn't; I paid attention today and noticed it started at 94%. Turned on at 10am, was 94% 12% in first 4 hours, 3%/hr 37% in first 8 hours, 4.6%...

Re: My radio discharges the battery very fast

So for giggles today I tracked my GD77's discharge.. I started it a little after 12:30 and I'm headed to bed, but if I remember to I'll track it longer tomorrow. It's on my hotspot, on a pretty quiet set of static talkgroups. Not sure how much rx activity, but not much. No TX. 5% minimum backlight, ...

Re: My radio discharges the battery very fast

Now I have changed the charger and I see that it works better. But I could see that the voltage was at 8.3 and 100% when charging the battery with the radio on. Turn off the radio and when you turn it on again the radio indicates that the voltage is at 7.9 and the percentage of the battery drops to...

Re: My radio discharges the battery very fast

Could be your charger is defective, see what your low battery and full battery voltages are.. Offhand not sure what low should be, but full should be around 8.3 after it's been off the charger for a few minutes, but still turned off. I've seen some cases where a failed charger isn't charging the bat...

Re: features to do...

Roaming is something that not a lot of amateur DMR radios do, that would be pretty sweet to have and maybe not that difficult. However, I think most others do this by location and SNR, not sure, but basically 'scanning' could perhaps do it too.

IMO Roger Beep has no business in an amateur radio.

Re: Update 6th March Version 2

VK3KYY, You might have missed my question earlier, lower priority than you helping out KU4ZD for sure, but is there a reason why my Unlink (4000, Private) contact has seemingly disappeared from everywhere except in the CPS Digital Contacts? It's not in the CPS TG Lists that it used to be, not in the...

Re: Update 6th March Version 2

I am using the GD-77 and I will download yesterdays firmware but at this point I a stuck, I can not do anything, I can not load firmware or get out of the error message You can't turn it on with the side buttons pressed and reflash? That is unexpected. Maybe turn off the power, remove battery, plug...
