Fairly new to DMR.
I got the GD-77 for promiscuous mode, but it FAILS!
It will NOT let you completely monitor an unknown signal nor will it DISPLAY everything you need to program.
IE You must know the Color Code AND Time Slot for it to work.

Does the Open FW do that?
Thanks!

Yes it does.
Talkgroup, timeslot and colour code filtering can all be turned on and off.

Note that colour code filtering is normally used as part of the valid signal detection. Turning it off will allow any signal to be received but it may also cause spurious noises to be heard. It is recommended not to leave it turned off all the time.
