Re: Experimental Baofeng RD-5R version

Hi Daniel,

thank you very much for the clarification.
My fault was not to leave the submenus with the MENU key but with EXIT.
Very easy and all the same as at the GD-77, I got confused somehow...

So all is working well :)

Re: Experimental Baofeng RD-5R version

Hi, yesterday I installed the latest version of OpenRD5R to my RD-5R (and updated today to the December 27th beta versino). Unfortunately I have the problem, that the config storage forcing doesn't seem to work. As far as I read, to force a config storage I have to press and hold SK2 (aka "Function"...

Re: On "Profiteering" and Free Software

I understand that this is just a formality, but I saw it on a lot of similar projects and I believe that it's better than nothing... With regards / 73, Pavel Unfortunately: no it isn't just a formality and it can be done wrong in other projects too (see here). The license is a legal contract you ha...

Re: Localistion support (foreign languages)

Wouldn't it save a lot of program memory if only one language is installed by default (e.g. english) and if one wants to localize, another language can be uploaded to the device via CPS, like the voice files?

Re: Motorboating on Tx audio

DMR or FM? DMR. It is really strange...I updated to the latest development a few minutes ago. The disturbing sound was still there (turn the radio on, but let the volume knob at its lowest level). Then I switched from my hotspot to another zone, to another repeater and back to my hotspot. The distu...

Re: Motorboating on Tx audio

Thanks for moving. I wasn't sure if this is this "motorboating" sound.
It appears at RX. Maybe I can try to do a recording of that noise. It wasn't there at the beginning I used OpenGD77, appeared with some firmware update, disappeared with the 04.10. update and came back yesterday ...

Re: New ongoing "Development" version has been created

Interesting...

with the last firmware before that one from today this disturbed audio (especially if the loudness is set to low) was gone.
With the update today, the disturbed audio came back.

Really strange.

What does "BOS" mean?
It's a german abbreviation and means simplified all those with a "blue light" (here in germany) on the car (police, firefighters, ambulance, ...).

Re: GD77 OPENING TONES

The original boot tone is polyphonic. The OpenGD77 is not polyphonic. Polyphonic or not... Checked the notes myself. The notes are c4, g4, e4, c5 which should result in the tune 16,8,23,8,20,8,28,8,0,0. But the values have to be pitched up by a half tone to get the original tune: 17,8,24,8,21,8,29,...
