OK trying to set the frequency offset I find that between 350 to 500 Hz that I get a message that doesn't appear otherwise which is "Warning: color code mismatch in received stream from modem, or AutoCal is needed"
I confirmed that CC 1 is set on the modem and the radio's code plug.
Bottom line... since going higher I was able to finally see "Modem Receiving" I finally got the parrot to work when I've set the modem's RX frequency 2 kHz higher.
I then ran AutoCal so that I could fine tune and it stated -200 Hz so of course the modem RX freq needs to be 1.8 kHz higher than it should be. I need to now figure out the best way to compensate for this...
Thank you everybody for your ideas and suggestions. It helped me troubleshoot what I suspect maybe an unusual situation of the Anyone's transmit frequency being way off what it should be.
