Thank you for any help!

I don't know what is on Telegram, as I don't currently have an account there

But just go for whatever is the most recent

If they have versions which have _JA at the end, those are for Japanese users and have a differnt font.

So don't use those unless you are Japanese ;-)

GREAT!

OpgenGD77 is now on my GD 77 Radio. I like it very much!

Is there any chance that you will continue working on the Firmware together with your friends?


I guess 3. March is a stable Version? Filename OpenGD77_D2021.04.03.01.sgl


Thanks!
Jim

That's the last and best version.

The ongoing status of the project is unclear at the moment.
There is a grey area with the distribution of the firmware, which potentially could be fixed by changes to the firmware and the CPS.
We should do this regardless, as it gets rid of the grey area.

At the moment I don't know if there are other problems, e.g. as the project uses code from various sources, all with different licenses :-(

I am for KC7RBW to finish his compliance audit, before any decision about the future can be taken.

Either way, the source code and firmware can't stay on github, becuase even if it is software license compliant, it may potentially breach Github's terms and conditions.

So its safer for me to relocate it to a server I pay for.

Thanks. It looks like the Telegram link is working. Thanks. The Github links are 404.

Hello Roger,

i hope for a solution of this desaster. Without your code the GD-77 is useless for me.

Many thanks for your effort and stay healthy!
