Re: DMR protocol

... A zone can have 80 channels right!? Anyways on the last stable version I tried to add a new channel to a zone that had close to or 80 existing channels. The result is that the new channel is not saved and I was dumped on a random channel. Could be nice to have a prompt if the zone is full you c...

Re: Public Beta (2021 11 21)

Howdy. Is there a problem with the transmitted TS info. If I send on TS1 I send on it will come up on my other unit with TS2 with the TS filter on. The TS filter seems to work fine with signal sent from other devices. I use 2 dm-1801. In mmdvm regardless if I send on TS 1 or 2 it is received as TS2...

Re: Public Beta (2021 11 21)

With this one, the possibility of reaching the APRS Network services like SMSGTE, getting the weathe...

Re: Public Beta (2021 11 21)

Quick question regarding the most recent release. (And TU for all you do) Does this version support SMS under hotspot mode, or under HT mode? Is this feature on the roadmap? TU and 73, de Luis, HB9HJU (and KC7ILO/HI8ILO) No. Hotspot mode only supports audio. SMS could not be supported unless someon...

Re: Larger memory

Honestly this is how I do legged SMT parts too, just clip each leg and clean up and then replace it. I don't have a hot air knife or sufficient hot air here to lift such a part reliably and safely. I totally agree. I do have a small hot air tool, but in the past I've tried to remove chips using it,...

Re: Larger memory

Sometimes it is better to cut the legs off the chip, and then desolder them individual.

One board I even had to use a Dremmel with a mini cutting disk to cut the legs on a large SMD chip
