Re: New ongoing "Development" version has been created

Just a quick note to say that I loaded the 1/19/2021 firmware release into one of my GD77's yesterday and ran it most of the day. It behaved fine with all the usual tasks I use it for. This morning I loaded the same firmware into my second GD77 and it is behaving fine as well. Looks like a nice release that is working problem free for my usual analog and DMR uses.

Thanks,

Rob W1AEX

Thanks Rob

This version should be one of the more stable and bug free versions, as it mainly focused on bug fixes, and useability issues

• Play acknowledgement beep if pressing SK2 during DMR Rx changes the TG, TS or CC
• Play short beep at the start of a DMR Rx signal, on voice prompt level 2 and above, if the Rx TG,TS or CC does not match the current TS,TG or CC

Thank you very much especially for that, it solves a lot of possible confusions.

BTW, is the TS change by SK2 press during DMR Rx considered a manual change and overrides the contact TS when falling back or is it just a temporary change as one would expect? I'm currently out of a DMR coverage so I cannot test that on my own.

SK2 sets the manual override, there isn't a back button for this.

I'm getting an error that statesGD-77 not connected, however the cps sees the radio and can read from it. this only happens when I try to upgrade the firmware any thought?

What program is reporting the "Not Connected" error. The OpenGD77 CPS ?

Did you put the radio into firmware update mode by holding the buttons in and then turning it on?

Hello Roger. I would like to draw your attention to the fact that the letters V and U are very similar in the font. It would be nice to change the letter U. For example like this:

Thank you for your efforts.
