    Default What kind of sense does this make

    I have an Astro Spectra with the following:

    10.72.00.00
    N08.03.05
    548008-0004C0-0

    I noticed that on the 3600 system the radio was missing a bunch of traffic. Well after playing around with it trying to figure out another problem I realized that if I did not have the 9600 system in the radio I could hear the 3600 traffic perfectly. I also noticed that when the 9600 system was programmed in when changing zones there was a lag in the zones changing back and forth. Like a computer that is low on memory. But the 9600 system works perfectly never misses anything.

    Any Ideas?

    Thanks

    Are you affiliating to both systems? The only time I have seen an Astro Spectra "lag" the way you describe is when it is attempting to de-affiliate from a system, but the transmit inhibit is activated. Is there any scanning involved? And if so, is it across both systems, or just one ?

    I don't think that I am affiliating to any. I am just.monitoring one system at a time.

    Read your codeplug and send to me again. I'll verify you've got things set up properly. Make sure it's your new (aligned) codeplug, because if I send it back to you with any changes, you will erase your new tuning settings if you program a pre-tuned codeplug, back into your freshly-tuned radio.

    Also, the R10.72.00 firmware DOES lag. So does the XTS3000/Saber with the ASTRO25 host firmware. It's pokey due to memory being maxed out. It's simply "more" code than the R07.71.07 3600/conventional firmware. There's a lot going on with the 9600 control channel, and more CPU cycles are dedicated to decoding it. Remember, it's 1996 technology. And damn fine technology at that

    Thanks Mars I changed the system scan time from 1 second to 255 radio works perfectly now.
