Re: Resources for Info On GE Orions

Re: IMPRES firmware update above 3.9/3.11?

There is nothing in the release notes about the heat issue but I do recall that problem. However I don't remember if there was a fix. The release notes apply to single unit and MUCs.

Position B is automatically set to that when Position A is set to Secure TX select, thats why its grayed out. There has to be a programming issue in one of the secure or trunking fields.
Agreed.
