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

Post by W2GLD »

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 also happens with numerous other commands and has resulted in my being completely locked out of BrandMeister since the are being sent over-the-air.

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. :?
