    Default Quantar/Astro-Tac Radio Service Software R14.11.00 Released

    As the title says, a new version of RSS has been released for Quantar/Quantro/Astro-TAC 3000.

    No release notes included in the download whatsoever. Very disappointing.

    They also haven't updated their HELP --> SYSTEM HELP menu since R14.09.00. In that release, SCM firmware R020.14.046 was current. The one we released the other day is .048. So maybe it would help if they could keep their own charts/notes current?

    You know, I was just thinking about this - I wonder if this version only allows narrow band configuration? (haven't looked at it myself)

    I just played with some codeplugs. That's exactly what this GARBAGE R14.11.00 release does: It disabled wideband selection (4.0 and 5.0 KHz) in my channel configuration pulldown menus.

    Reverting back to R14.10.00 restored 4.0 and 5.0 KHz selection.

    No offense to my American friends and visitors to this website: But there are plenty of Quantars in operation outside of the USA! Motorola might wish to invest in a world atlas or something along those lines.

    We did pull R14.10.00 from the downloads area as the RVN5002 software is still available for purchase on MOL. However, for ham and International users, the R14.11.00 version of Quantar RSS is ____NOT____ compatible with our needs and conditions of system licensure.

    Motorola needs to immediately stop caving into the FCC nonsense. The FCC does not dictate what transpires in Canada or elsewhere.

    "Motorola needs to immediately stop caving into the FCC nonsense. The FCC does not dictate what transpires in Canada or elsewhere."

    Exactly, what about NON Part 90 radios and systems here in the USA. Not to mention those who are NOT going to 'narrow' band.
