Re: Interop Between Type I & II

The TG info reference is easy. Its a simple counter. Each TG converts over so fleet 0 subfleet 0 would be TG 0, fleet 0 subfleet 1 would be TG 1 fleet 0 subfleet 2 would be TG 2. when you hit the may Tg for the fleet you continue on so fleet 1 subfleet 0 would be +1 from the last subfleet available ...

Re: Astro Spectra question

you should be able to use the 5.03 version. Unless the model number is a created one both versions should read the unit fine. No matter since you have been able to read the unit successfully.

Re: V16.0 and v2.9.0 on MOL

I forsee a real mess. Most service shops like to keep everything current but if they have to pay for firmware they may decide not to buy it or just buy every second one. This will get worse if they firmware has to be bought on a per unit basis.

I think I will sit back and watch and see what happens.

Re: Odessey Control Head Discrepencies

Its the control head type info. The w series uses the same line for zone and chan name. The O series has the extra line an a few more characters.

Re: Astro Spectra question

You can use win 7 32 bit as well. The cable is not that hard to find its the astro25 spectra cable thats a pain to find.

Re: Interop Between Type I & II

I think he is migrating from a separate type I to a different type 2 system. If they were on the same system then the TGs can be hot patched together until all the units are on the new TG and format.

Re: Astro Spectra question

navy made the one comment I was going to make the FTDI chipset is a must. It looks like you have everything else lined up right. The last version of CPS was v5.03.00

Re: Astro Spectra question

Win 7 32 runs the AS CPS with no issues. You will need a rib box and the serial cable unless you have a USB cable designed to fit the Spectra DB15. If there is no USB cable available then you will need a USB to serial adapter the rib box and cable (DB25 on one end db15 on the other). A FTI based ada...

Re: Conventional Status Settings

The status is sent in the P25 package so its there for all units to hear. I have never set up a stand alone radio to do it. I would suspect its in the signaling menus somewhere. Obviously you would have to have the matching status values set in the status alias list and you may also need to have the...

Re: Conventional Status Settings

The status message should pop up on whatever console(s) is monitoring that TG. The status button decode is routed by the site controller filter subroutine from the master logger to the TG handler subroutine that way only the dispatcher for the TG sees status only for units on the TG. Units in scan w...

NXDN 4800 baud

I have a local NXDN 4800 baud system We are looking at testing. I am considering ICOM rather than Kenwood for several reasons. I am thinking of the Icom F-5161. before I spend some budget money on hardware I have a few questions. will the radio chosen do NXDN multisite 4800? will it scan TGs Aside f...

Re: Repeater Firmware 2.8.n

This constant messup on both CPS and firmware on both the trbo and the apx lines is just embarrassing. sooner or later a bad piece of code will get out and brick a pile of radios or worse contollers. Then the s**t will hit the fan. I understand that not every configuration of hardware can be tested ...

Re: CPS and Win 10.

Good to know. My programming computer only contains CPS. I often suspect that some of the win 10 issues are from other programs also installed on the computers.
