Re: Public Beta (2022 01 09)

Yep, I use Eco 5, it's even better (the MCU is running a 9MHz while "sleeping"). But with this one, you can miss the very beginning of a transmission, sometimes. Tried Eco 5 overnight; was at 50% after 24 hours ;) So very uncontrolled test, single comparison, but looks basically the same. That's fi...

Re: Public Beta (2022 01 09)

Depends on what you are listening to Doesn't seem to be a problem on DMR repeaters, because the other station can't transmit until the wakeup squence is complete However DMR simplex takes a long time to wake up. Not sure about FM So its up to each operator to decide the level of battery life versus...

Yeah I did have it on 4 or 5 and I found it to be pretty sleepy to wake up, often missing who was being called, or the callsign if someon...

In the past months, yeah ;-)
Well, yeah, but I don't recall it being so efficient until recently :D but either way very nice.

Re: Public Beta (2022 01 09)

Wow.... Were there power tweaks made recently? I turned my radio on yesterday at 8am, rx-only on a fairly quiet repeater, but it's been on for 24 hours now. Battery is at 50%. Eco level 3, backlight set to auto 10s. I might turn on another radio just to make sure it's actually working but it seems t...

Re: External speaker mic

I haven't gotten one yet but want a Retevis HK008 Shoulder Speaker Mic which has its own built-in audio amp and volume knob... I wonder if it'd make a radio louder, certainly make adjusting the volume a little easier on my other DMR radio anyway. I've personally never had an issue with any DMR stati...

Re: Battery eliminator

Hi Walter, KT4LH, You are right, a MD-380 battery does not hold = work on a GD77! But some user reported they are using the MD-380 battery eliminator on a GD77 It perfectly slides in, just the bottom plate with the two slots is missing. Not perfect. So they use a cable tie around the GD77 at the bo...

Re: ALLCALL with GD77

Can't you just all agree on a Simplex TG? I've heard TG99 often.

Or if you really want All Call, I think that's typically 16777215 so just program that in as an RX group if not already in Promiscuous mode?

it looks like, the TYT MD-380 battery eliminator will fit on GD77 ???

Anyone tried this ?
What makes you think that? You can't put MD-380 batteries on the GD77, no.
