Re: BER

Thank you very much Norbert for your dedicated effort. But I must be very off the target in getting the auto-echo working. The panel on the OS2 for the C4FM is fulfilled exactly like the manual instructions but I cannot find how to operate on the DGID 99 that is mentioned, hence, I cannot run the te...

Re: BER

I am having the problem with C4FM only. Well it seems so. My radio frequency and OS2 is set to 438.200 Mhz. I confess I am having a hard time to understand how to put it on an echo mode and make the test. What I see is that with the FT-70 the problem is less or rarely noticeable. Whereas with the FT...

Re: BER

I have just tried with YSF 99999 and could hear slight micro-cuts. My 2 Fusion radios (FTM-400XDR and FT-70DR) do not have this half-deviation settings. I believe they are both already in half deviation mode. On the OS2 in the modem section, I could see that there is both C4FM and C4FM Half Deviatio...

BER

Hello, I have been experimenting some erroneous bits with the OS2. That is causing some micro cuts in the transmission. Reception is excellent. Is there a way to adjust this with the OS2? What would be the procedure? I have been with the OS2 for quite a while now and am on the version 43 (Beta) and ...

OS2 Frequency Range

Hi there,

What is the frequency range we can set on the OS2? Can it also operate with VHF?

Thank you.

Re: Battery operation?

Check out this video of me changing profiles. Note that the OS2 is attached with a Power Bank of 10Map via a double-face tape. It lasts for many days before recharging.

Re: Openspot2 - Mistake for SharkRf???

I am TOTALLY satisfied with the OS2 and the product support we get from this forum. For me, it is worth the money spent. A very reliable piece of equipment which is kept up-to-date. Rather than a display as I frankly do not need, (I have one on my pi-star that I rarely see) I would like to see a sma...

Easiness to change Profiles via the radio (in video)

For a couple of distant friends of mine I prepared the video below that shows the fast and easy way to change profiles on the Openspot 2 via radio. It is Portuguese spoken but with subtitles in English. I hope it can help someone as it did for my distant friends. 73 - PY4CK https://www.youtube.com/w...

Re: Changing reflectors or nodes on OS2

On the Yaesu FT-2DR you will be able to do it as long as the DTMF is set to Manual. But on the other hand, you can pre-program the DTMFs codes and associate them to the keyboard. This way transmitting and pressing one key you will in fact transmit the sequence pre-programmed. For this once registere...
