Issues with DMR reporting as not connected

I've noticed an issue over the past few days that when I am connected to a BrandMeister DMR server, in this case 3108 in the US, after a period of time the OS3 reports disconnected for no reason even though traffic is still coming though and this happens with today's firmware release as well. Has an...

Re: DTMF Issues with Kenwood TH-D74A & D-Star to DMR Crossmode

As an update, the same DTMF lockup issue is happening in other modes as well, so it appears this may be a Kenwood firmware bug in v1.10; random DTMF lockups like crazy. Oh well, I guess being a D-Star radio, Kenwood didn't spend allot of time testing aging analog DTMF; yeah that makes sense. :?

DTMF Issues with Kenwood TH-D74A & D-Star to DMR Crossmode

Has anyone else seen issues with DTMF commands locking up their Kenwood TH-D74A HT's when using D-Star to DMR crossmode? When I enter command #4000, the radios seems to lockup and require a power off and/or battery pull. This command is consistent in firmware 1.10, which BTW is the latest, but it al...

P25 Talkgroup/Individual Calls Backwards

I believe your implementation of the P25 talkgroups vs Individual Calls are backwards in the openSPOT2, please allow me to explain. In P25 in most other platforms, you use the talkgroup selection to switch talkgroups; in the openSPOT2, it appears that your talkgroup switching method is using Individ...

Re: NXDN

Devs, now that NXDN and Project-25 abilities have been added to mainstream MMDVM host and are available on other hotspots such as the ZumSpot; what are the plans moving forward? Will you be adding both NXDN and Project-25 abilities in the near future? Things from openSPOT have been pretty tight lipp...

Feature openSPOT RF Bands, perhaps 900 MHz?

You've already heard the pleas for Project-25 adoption, which would be most welcome to the solid openSPOT platform, so I won't beat that dead horse other than to throw my hat in the ring for it as well; however, with that said, have you considered making an openSPOT to cover the 900 MHz (33-CM) amat...

Re: Firmware Version 0125 Doesn't Keep PTT Talkgroups Active

For what it's worth, today I see that 0126 is available, so I upgrading to that and reset my entire configuration and all appears to be working fine again using the same 3102 master, so I can only assume that something in the firmware had an effect on this issue. Anyway, it's likely reseting the ent...

Re: Firmware Version 0125 Doesn't Keep PTT Talkgroups Active

Okay thanks, then something must have changed on 3102 master then as this is where I am connected to; yet users of openSPOT on master 3108 appear unaffected by this issue. Strange how they keep changing things. Thanks for the update.

Firmware Version 0125 Doesn't Keep PTT Talkgroups Active

There appears to be a change in firmware version 0125 where a single PTT'd talkgroup is no longer saying active continuously. After upgrading to firmware 0125, I've noticed that the talkgroup I usually sit on all day long keeps timing out and disconnecting after 15 minutes. This was not the case und...

Re: NXDN

Any update on the NXDN integration? This would be great as with this we could also have another cross-mode to DMR and System Fusion using Kenwood or ICOM digital radios. Please consider adding NXDN and if you need assistance with this; we'd be happy to help and we're already equipped with NXDN radio...
