Re: Groups recommendation ? Radio for Hot Spot mode operation..

Got the TYT MD-UV-380 yesterday and installed the Open GD-77 firmware this afternoon. Followed the instructions and took the time to do all the flash back ups incase it all went wrong, after a bit fiddling to get the code plug cleaned up it is working well in hot spot mode. Thanks for the recommenda...

Groups recommendation ? Radio for Hot Spot mode operation..

Now that the GD-77 is no longer produced and difficult to source, what is the groups recommendation for a radio that will run the Open GD77 firmware reliably in Hot spot mode ? I would like to be able to use a battery eliminator and gel cell battery with a solar panel to allow a small portable 2 wat...

Re: CAL DATA ERROR and No com port Close and reopen... error messages

Just a quick follow up to say a big thank you to Colin, G4EML for his help in getting this radio revived. The a custom version of the firmware loaded in to the radio and allowed it to access the CPS so as I could upload another calibration file as it showed that there was not one in the radio that c...

Re: CAL DATA ERROR and No com port Close and reopen... error messages

Just re read your last post Colin, the radio allows the Open GD-77 firmware to be loaded but when it is re booted the issue persists :-(

Re: CPS channel "Radio ID" property and some weird behaviour

Following this thread...

" It's a per-channel DMRId override if non-empty. "

It's the code plug from my radio that Gareth has.

How would I stop this happening in future version ?

That all have the Open GD77 Feb 28 2022 [ 0118581 D ] Build and exactly the same code plug installed. All of the radio’s w...
