Re: Able to receive but unable to transmit via openSPOT

Norbert, After contacting HRO Atlanta, they immediately sent out a replacement openSPOT which arrived today. (Kudos to HRO for their outstanding customer service!) As expected, the new openSPOT works perfectly and I'm now fully functional (i.e., able to transmit and receive via the new openSPOT). Th...

Re: Able to receive but unable to transmit via openSPOT

Norbert,

I appreciate your assistance and know that you were trying to help me rule everything out before I had to send it back.

Thanks again and I’ll let you know how the new one works out.

Take care and have a great weekend!

Re: Able to receive but unable to transmit via openSPOT

Regretfully, DSTAR does the exact same thing. I can receive on my ID-51 that it connected, but when I key the PTT I do not ever get the LED to flash. At this point I'm planning to contact HRO Atlanta (once again) and I will be sending my openSPOT back to them. I'm hoping they'll send me a replacemen...

Re: Able to receive but unable to transmit via openSPOT

I have no doubt that these are tested and I purchased mine because of the fact that they perform so well. As I mentioned in my original post, I have had another openSPOT owner take a look at mine to ensure that I didn’t overlook anything and they tested it with their own radio. Regretfully, they wer...

Re: Able to receive but unable to transmit via openSPOT

Both are set to the same color code.

Even with all of the corrective measures I have tried and those you have suggested, I've never had the modem LED flash when I key the PTT.

I'm starting to think that I may have received a defective openSPOT. :(

Re: Able to receive but unable to transmit via openSPOT

I currently have 131 installed, but it didn't help.

The modem LED does blink red when the openSPOT is transmitting to my radio, (I do get the bootup voice announcement and can hear others speaking once it's connected and there is activity on a TG), but it never blinks when I key the PTT.

Re: Able to receive but unable to transmit via openSPOT

I'm currently set to 446.100000 and I 'have tried several other frequencies within the range of the openSPOT without success.

I didn't see the ability to set RX and TX ref. frequencies in my Motorola CPS for the current channel to medium.

Able to receive but unable to transmit via openSPOT

I own a Motorola XPR 7550e and although I can listen to TGs on my openSPOT and scan the TGs, I'm completely unable to transmit via my openSPOT. I'm unable to run DMR autocal and I have tried manually changing the DMR demod modes on the modem page without any success. The modem LED never blinks when ...
