MD9600 no RX/TX

Post by K0CPU » Wed May 15, 2024 3:09 pm

I opened my MD-9600 and the board shows MD9600-UV-V2.1-170608

I have installed the latest V2 firmware and have entered in my codeplug what I believe to be the proper settings for my local repeaters. I cant seem to transmit and I do not believe the receive is working 100% either.

I have tried to use version 1 as well as version 2 of the OpenGD77 firmware with similar results. Anything I can try to adjust?

V1 and V2 firmware are identical apart from the backlight control. So either should work.

Does the radio work on FM? If so then you are using the correct firmware version.

What happens when you try to transmit on DMR?

My radio has the same marking on the PCB and I use V2 software.
Do you have some other radio that you can listen on to verify that radio is transmitting ?

I have a beofang handheld that is working and can test with. I will attempt to test again tonight and post my findings.

I have not tried the DMR yet, just FM. I am new technician and trying to get to a couple local repeaters and then move to DMR.
