Favorites List

Post by GM7LSI Johnny » Sun Dec 02, 2018 11:29 pm

This might be on here already and I`ve not found it, and I not sure if this would even be possible, but it would be nice to have a list of favorite talk groups that could be saved to a file our PC instead of having to scroll through them all to find the ones you like. Thanks, Johnny. And what an amazing program.

Can you please explain what do you mean in more detail? You can use your radio's favorite contacts list if your radio supports this feature, or if not, put your favorite talkgroups at the beginning of your radio's contact list.

Hi Nonoo, I have the FTM-400 and it only stores frequencies in the memory, but what I meant was, the ability to store favourite talk groups in the OS2 program, so one click in one of your list of favourites takes you to that talk group instead of having to select C4FM, then Brandmeister, then the server, then scroll to the talk group that you want. It could possibly be linked to a file stored on the PC, so that when you are in a talkgroup you can click on "Add to Favourites" and it would store the details for that talkgroup. So when you want to go to a specific talkgroup you go to favourites, click on the one you want and you go directly to that talkgroup, a bit like google favourites. Hope that explanation is a bit better. Johnny.

You can use the Quick Call feature of the OS2 which exactly does that. You can store your favorite TGs there.

Thanks Nonoo, But I can`t see anywhere to store any favourites or anywhere to recall any favourites. Thanks for trying anyway. Johnny.

Hi Nonoo, I found it eventually, but it was not showing up on the side bar, but now that I have saved my 1st one, Quick Call now shows up in the side bar. Very happy now, this programme just keeps getting better. Many thanks for your patience. Johnny, GM7LSI.

If you use a smaller display and the sidebar is not shown then you'll find this feature on the Tools page which will show up on smaller displays in the menu.
