NA7Q - Unofficial Firmware Build [2/26]

Post by NA7Q » Sat Jan 04, 2020 4:36 pm

Latest Build: 2/26/2020


These builds have minor Interface changes. Some of which include a different arrangement of settings and different names. I have also recently added extra power levels. You may need to calibrate the power levels, as the values can very greatly between each radio.
The build includes all the same features as the official firmware. They may eventually have some added features in future updates.

The builds usually includes the latest source from the GitHub repo at the time of upload.

Sharing is caring!
Use at your own risk.



Newest features/fixes.

Automatic Color Code detection when the setting quick menu monitor mode to "Double". The CC will be set upon detection. This menu may be renamed in the future. It still listens to both time slots.
Added Blue + 5 shortcut key to the Options menu
Added Blue + 6 shortcut key to the Display menu
Added Blue + 9 shortcut key to the RSSI menu
Fixed DMR Breakup (http://www.opengd77.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=656)
Talkgroup/Contact Filtering
Add New Channel via VFO
Added 5W++ with Long Press of SK2 and Right Key
Hotspot Fixes
Last Heard is now 32 entries
Last Heard Talkgroup <> Callsign keypress is now Sidekey 2 (Blue)
Split Contact Codeplug or DMRID Database

DMR ID Caching / Codeplug, Database, TA contact priority selection (experimental)

Added 4 extra power levels. 10mW, 50mW, 75mW, and 100mW and 5W++. My meter will hardly calibrate anything below about 80mW on VHF and UHF. So these are *rough* estimates which will vary by radio.
Experimental Contacts Cache

Minor UI changes and fixes.
Minimum Brightness
New Hotspot Mode. Activated via the menu now.
VFO Scanning is enabled. With adjustable low / high ranges.
Blue+1: Start scanning for VFO and Channel Mode!
Blue+2: Jump to Battery screen
Blue+3: Jump to Last Heard screen
Blue+4: Jump to Channel Details screen, CC setting
Blue+7: decrease brightness
Blue+8: increase brightness

Also added is support for short and long pressing buttons ORANGE and SK1.



Thanks to all the developers who make this possible!

Updated to fix missing "TS" text on languages that are not english.

The Monitor setting is the "filter" for monitoring "Single" or "Double" (both) time slots.

thanks, took me a while to work out that I had to name my tg in the digital contacts to include other stuff than just tg91 etc and the menu list is in a different order but no big deal here, many thanks

I did change the menu order slightly. It made more sense to use this order by the more frequent use of these menus. Sorry for the confusion. Hope it works well for you!

The talkgroup names will be in the official firmware release, and other behind the scenes changes.
The menu layout and names that I have changed will not be the official release. These builds are more for my personal likes, that maybe I'll suggest to be in the official releases as I progress through things here and there.

I posts these, as others may like the minor changes I've made, and because these builds are more up to date than what have officially been built and posted via the GitHub repo.

To stop confusion with my builds, I've moved this to the General discussion section.

I am about to do a new release, but in general Alex, Colin Daniel and I are trying to bug fix and stabilise the code, which means that we are not likely to be any new features for a while.
