Hi,

It's just about the model, there is a DM-1801A (no left/right keys).


Cheers.

Please remind me what the "A" index means in the firmware version."OpenDM1801A" . The description could not be found.
Its a different model of Baofeng radio.

Look it up on Baofengs website

e.g.

Exciting to see ongoing work on the project! Question on Releases versus Betas.

Will we see a Beta, evolve into a Release Candidate, and evolve into a Release?

Or, are we going to a "Perpetual Beta" model?

I'm not sure why you posted this comment.

How long do you think it takes to beta test firmware of this complexity?
This is not a commercial project. People test it and fix it in their spare time, unpaid, and this means it does not proceed at the pace of a commercial product.

When the beta is stable it will become a release, but this software is very complex and it takes a lot of beta testing before we know it does not have any major bugs.

If you read the other threads, you'd know that people are testing the satellite mode becuase there was concerns the frequencies may not be correct

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1842&p=15907#p15907

I was also alerted to major problem for blind users with Satellite mode, only yesterday.

There are also some fixes DMR audio problems that are currently being tested as well as changes to protect the Rx preamps when developers are testing DMR Tx / Rx switchover code, etc etc etc

Thousands of hams use this firmware and I'm not going to make a "Release" until I am sure its actually OK.

2) FIRMWARE Oktober 2021 ----------------------------------OK
3) CPS: FILE VOICE german_hans-1.25 ---------OK
5) CPS: Digital Contacts for OE (232) ........Ok
4) CPS: install satellit keps
? german.h ?
? wordlist.csv ?

Thanks, 73 Alfred
