Re: PCR-100 still no success
- Dear Eric,
I think the handshake it taking place. The power led comes on green
on th unit. I have gone through the com set up and if it is the wrong
com the app tells you. I am getting light static or fuzz from an
external speaker. I also tried line in and get the same light static.
I have emailed dishman and tonight I am going to open the thing up
and have a look at the bnc connection the serial connection and the
speaker jack to see if there is something out of the ordinary. I may
take it to my Icom dealer and see if he can get this thing going.
From reading this group and the radioreference I think the unit
should have fired up.
