You need to open the top of the radio and read the PCB version number

OK.

You have V2.1 hardware

(I don't think V1 hardware exits)

I will add you to the list of testers after I have documented the installation process

I have been given a version 2.1 hardware radio, and it seems to work OK, so possibly its just some radios which have the hardware problems, e.g. depending on individual component tollerances

I thought the problem was that low power settings can't access repeaters, because the PA does not ramp up its power fast enought to transmit the beginning of each DMR timeslot pulse
Oh, right, I got mixed up. It's the 2 lower settings that cannot work properly. My mistake from remembering his story.

Which version of Windows are you using ?

Check the device manager for the OpenGD77 COM port

Make sure you select MD9600 as Radio type
