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...

Re: Update 6th March Version 2

Is there a way to back up the calibration, or does that happen as part of the codeplug? Its part of the CPS. But make sure you download the latest CPS to match this firmware, otherwise uploading the firmware will do nothing as the old CPS uploads to the old calibration storage address in the Flash ...

Re: Update 21st Feb

I saw the weird issue with the volume on sticking on a few firmware versions ago and I thought I'd cancelled out of something, but I was sure I had not. I set it to the normal -6 or -9 or whatnot, finished setting the options here, went to display options and it was loud again. Went back in and that...

Re: [Solved] Can't load firmware, Read/Write to radio OK.

One day I was paranoid my radio wasn't working right, I was holding the PTT and top button by accident, rather than the two side buttons. :(

Re: [solved] VFO was Rx only until I updated my CPS setting

I got my GD77 during a 2 day power outage, I was soooo frustrated that I was convinced I could FPP it, at least use it in some fashion, but could not, and I don't recall it being obvious that TX was inhibited. It was only after power was on and I was able to get into the CPS that I discovered the VF...

Re: Linux...?

I have a Windows 7 VM here for one reason.. Programming about 3 radios that have no other way to program them.

You can download a Windows 10 ISO and use it indefinitely, afaik, so that'd be an okay option to do this as needed. It's probably a lot easier than trying to make wine work.

Re: Update 12th Feb

Settings only get reset when there is a change to the settings, normally to add a new setting, or occasionally to reorganise the settings memory. How does it know when it needs to reset, a magic number I believe, but how does it know the old one vs new one? I think he was asking that if you upgrade...

Re: Experimental TG filtering option

I've messed with this a bit this morning, seems to be functioning fine, I've tried a few random things to trip it up and it seems to be working well. I really wish it would show the caller and TG though, that information is great to know if you are curious what the activity is. I'm a bit torn on onl...

Re: Chat Box

How about IRC? I created ##opengd77 on Freenode. There are several other radio related channels of use on Freenode anyway, ##rtlsdr, ##hamradio, etc.
