CPS Zone and ScanList limits?

Post by dl9sec » Tue Jun 30, 2020 11:32 am

Hi,

I am currently trying to convert my RD-5R codeplug (made with the Radioddity CPS for RD-5R) for the OpenGD77.
So far I was successfull converting the CP to CVS, adapt it to fit the OpenGD77CPS CP pattern and re-convert it to .gd77.

The CP opens in OpenGD77CPS (build date 20200627), but it seems, that I lost some Zone entries and also some ScanList entries.
My original CP containes 78 Zones and 72 ScanLists. Zones seems to be cut at 64.
What are the Zone and ScanList-limits of the CPS?

I tried to aggregate some Zones and ScanLists, but when I try to recreate the lost entries, the up-/down-movement doesn't seem to work proper, some weird things happened (e.g. Zone doesn't move anymore or disappears).

Unfortunatetly I can not import my GD77 CP with the G4EML CVS tool (GD77-CSV(OpenGD77).exe) to edit it externally. It seems, the tool can not handle the 80 entries per Zone.

Seems, that i am stuck...

Colin has a special version of his utility for the OpenGD77 variation of format with 80 channel zones.

Yes. The total number of zones is lower, but it is no longer necessary to have 1 zone per repeater, as you don't need 1 channel per TG, because the Rx Group list is now just a TG list which is assigned to each channel.

So you just need to make a few TG lists e.g. DMR MARC, BM and TGIF and assign the appropriate TG list to the channel depending on the network

Thanks for the hint! Now I saw the 80er version of Colin.

I managed to aggregate the scanlists to 61 lists before converting the CVS files to a OpenGD77 codeplug. This works so far.
It seems, that a maximum of 68 zones are imported instead of 75 zones.

My CP is really large and covers Germany (156 Contacts, 6 Groups, 842 Channels, 75 Zones, 61 ScanLists). The zones are sorted by german states and large areas, so there is alot of work in it :D

I think with Colin's 80er version I can aggregate the zones externally a bit more to lower the number of zones.

Thank you.
