Re: Radio will not transmit with Nextion screen.

Thank you for your concern. I found the problem. We had set the TX/RX offsets at -500. I checked a file from a long time ago and found that the offsets were 500 not -500. When I reset the offsets back to 500 the radio responded but with a BER over 5. I dropped the offset to 400 and the BER is now le...

Up Dated to 4.1.4

I recently updated to 4.1.4 and just noticed today that my DMR Configuration has changed. I was able to get my hotspot ID replaced but there are other changes that I am not familiar with. Is there a place to find what the configuration section should look like?

Understanding Duplex MMDVM hat

I have the pi3B+ board. I have an Icom ID31 D-star radio. We have a D-star repeater the is on 146 mHz. If I put a Duplex MMDVM Hat on my pi will pi-star allow me to access the above mentioned repeater. I am still quite green when it comes to pi-star.

I am interested in learning all I can about Cross Mode. I know there are many you tube videos out there on every subject known to man. What I am hoping to find is something written, so I can look at the steps and then perform them. I like you tube for some things but I think I would do better with s...

Re: Putting software on sd card

I talked to two people today and they both said the same thing. "Have you checked the TX/RX offset." And the answer was a resounding "NO". Once I set those the radio transmits on 4.1.2. Again, Thank you for all your help 73.

Re: Putting software on sd card

You are a good person and I appreciate your help. Now both of my hotspots are 4.1.2 but there is one thing I just noticed they used to be 4.1.0-RC8. The RC-08 is what is missing. Could that be my problem? BTW- I never operate them both at one time, I only have one power adapter. Thank you again.
