Re: [tracker2] ot2m Freezeing up
- Can you save your configuration to a file and send it to me?
I'd also like to get an off-air recording of the traffic it's hearing.
I've got a recorder with a DB9 tap, but I don't think it'll run for more
than a day or so. If it's somewhere easy to access, I could send it and
maybe we'll get lucky and have it recording when the tracker locks up.
