Just a quick post in case anyone’s had a similar issue and perhaps can help me with this problem….
I’ve noticed that my GD-77 no longer beeps when it times out.
I have the TOT set to 180, with rekey after 0 seconds; and after 180 seconds the GD-77 stops transmitting and I can see the LED on the top turn from Red to Green, but I don’t get any audible indication that this has happened.
I’ve looked though the CPS settings and I can’t see anything which specifically controls this. I can set the Call Exit tone, and I think this will beep every time I release the PTT, but this is not the same as the Timeout beep.
I initially suspected, I have read back the codeplug from one GD-77 to write it onto another GD-77 and somehow the readback process has corrupted the codeplug data somehow, but in a way that’s not visible my any option in the CPS.
But I built a new codeplug with just one channel for my hotspot on TG9, and this isnt giving the timeout beep either
I’ve tied this simple codeplug on a GD-77 that’s running firmware 3.0.6 as well as one that’s running firmware 3.1.6 and I get the same problem on both radios, so I’m beginning to wonder if this issue only effects hotspots.
I guess I’ll need to setup minimal codeplugs to access a local repeater and try that, and perhaps I can figure out why at least 2 of the GD-77 I have at the moment, no longer beep on timeout 🙁
