Convert usf rooms to all caps

Post by N4BKR » Sat May 11, 2019 8:23 am

I would like to see the ability to convert the reflector lists for ysf/fcs hostnames to all caps in the hostfile so that they can display properly in the ft70d. I am also curious as to what this will do to make the rooms easier to save if possible.

Can you please post a photo of a hostname which you think is not displayed properly?

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. The FT-70d will only display caps in wiresX mode when connected to a room. The pi-star host does this by selection, which allows rooms to be saved in the memory slots of the ft-70d when in wiresX mode. But the rooms display like A -RC for America-RC in wiresX mode. AMERICA-RC displays properly when saved from the pi-star. I really don't have a way to take picture of it with anything other than my cellphone camera, and I don't think it would come out too well.

A cellphone photo would be fine. Do you mean the server names on the categories screen? FT1, FT2 and FTM400 are saving room names properly to the categories screen (we don't have an FT70).

Ok, I attached a file. I also switched over to the saved rooms I have, which are fcs rooms. I can save a room under wiresX in a memory slot, but as soon as I disconnect, then reconnect to wiresX, it will be gone.

In pi-star, they have a switch that converts room names to ALL CAPS. Those rooms will save in the ft-70d.

FT=-70s are great radios. Maybe in the future you can grab one for yourselves.

Thank you. Interesting limitation of the radio. Which connector and server did you use while recording the video?

Do you mean FCS002 room 85 (America-Ragchew-(Wires-X))?
Can I send you a beta firmware to test in email tomorrow?
