9703Re: what am i doing wroung on setting up?
- Dec 30, 2009this is not at all what is going on. I have a HT1C cable from byonics I have tried to hook up to my mobile. and I have a HT cable from RPC I have tried to use on my HT. these cables have worked for a TT4 and the opentracker but cant get the tracker2 to PTT at all on both rigs. the only time I can get the tracker2 to PTT on my mobile is if I turn on the HT jumper when hooked up to my mobile but then if I go under the config program and go under tuning and hit PTT it wont turn on the HT or the mobile rig. I know my cables are good because I used them on other trackers even used them on the opentracker. when I got the tracker2 it had a diffent firmware number and I upgraded that by the config program and I wonder if this might have done something. I know the gps is working right because I'm getting all stations to show and dispatch menu is showing on gps.
