Re: Display RSSI and Jumbospot

Re: Last Heard on Nextion Display

I have installed the PD0DIB Model 6 3.2 SIMPLEX with Last Heard and LH TalkGroup version. Running with ZumSpot. No joy? Not sure why the LH is not showing. Most all else works as it should, except what is SO touch area respond to on the DMR page? It does not seem to work as well.

Okay folks, We have discovered what the issues has been with missed PTT repeater response. We were using the repeater DMR ID for our local talk group. We did this so local talk group could be accessed through the internet if desired by a HotSpot or other repeaters. When two stations are using local ...
