Re: Need to key Duplex to start receiving, but not my jumbo?

What if i were to change the controller mode in the dashboard from duplex to simplex? Would the network then see it as a hotspot?

Problems with registering. No conformation E-mail reply from Brandmeister

Is anyone else having trouble registering with Brandmeister? Registration seems to go OK until i get the "look for the conformation e-mail" then all i get is crickets... No e-mail, nothing in the spam folder, nothing. Been days.

Re: Need to key Duplex to start receiving, but not my jumbo?

In short - YES, thats a difference between a hotspot and a repeater. The networks see the duplex board as a repeater and treat it like one, all the dynamic talk groups time out after 15 mins of no local use. Mine seems to drop after only 5 min You can set your most used TGs static using BrandMeiste...

Need to key Duplex to start receiving, but not my jumbo?

Is there a setting in the dashboard that controls this? Its weird, my Jumbo starts right up and begins to receive. But with my Duplex, i need to key it first to hear a talk group. And then it drops it after a period of time, even if it is active.

Re: Which frequencies to use?

I would of pointed you to ON7LDS's screens with the same functionality, but his screens are for 3.5's and won't load on your 2.4. He has a 2.4 duplex screen file. Thats what i put back on after your baud screen. As far as it being clunky, thats pretty much the way it is. It is possible to speed up ...

Re: Which frequencies to use?

I've made 2 .tft files for what I think one is your screen (you said earlier 2.4 but theres a basic and enhanced version), somewhere on your screen is the model number, just load the file that matches it. Then you can click on a button and it will set the default baud rate (theres no confirmation o...

Re: Which frequencies to use?

you could plug the screen into your PC and connect to it and send the same commands that should populate the data fields to make sure everything works. I could probably figure out how to do that eventually, but if you wanted to help me along a bit... What I'd like to try is to run a command on the ...
