Description

Chirp isn't doing PL decode. In Chirp, I enter TSQL and a tone, sent to radio...no work. I can go into VFO mode on the mobile and program in a frequency with a PL decode. Using a HT without any PL, the mobile works fine (mobile shows activity, but no audio). I save that entry into Memory mode, and it still works fine. Send my channels to Chirp, and I can see no difference in what I originally entered (except the name of the freq now shows only the freq). Enter a name for my newly saved freq, save the file and send it to the mobile...no PL decode working.

Please attach an image with a channel that does not work and a second image with the same channel that works.

Everything will be for channel 5. I entered the freq (in VFO Mode) with an encode/decode PL of 100.0. Also checked the squelch setting (option 16) and it's set for CTCSS. Saved the freq into Memory. Double checked that it still worked in Memory Mode (also checked the other TSQL channels). Downloaded the channels into Chirp. Saved and overwrote the old .img file. With no changes to Chirp, uploaded the file to the mobile. Everything still works. Lastly, went and changed the Tone Mode from TSQL to Tone and saved the file. Went and changed it back to TSQL and saved the file. Uploaded the file to the mobile. PL decode not working for Ch 5, although it still works for the other TSQL channels.

Not pictures! CHIRP Radio Images (*.img) files.

Sorry about that! This is using Ver 20160513
I removed all other freqs from the file, except channels 4 and 5. I used a HT on simplex 146.565 for the xmit.
1. DL'd the file and removed all non-relevant freqs. Saved as "Good.img"
2. UL'd the file to mobile and checked that all still worked. It did as it should on Ch 5 (shows activity, no audio but hear audio on Ch 4).
3. Closed Chirp.
4. Opened Chirp. Went to open "Good.img" and received "Detection Failed" message, and I selected my Anytone mobile (happens every time I want to open my Anytone files).
5. Uploaded file to radio to see if it still worked, and it did.
6. Changed just the "Tone Mode" of Ch 5 to "Tone" and saved file.
7. Changed just the "Tone Mode" of Ch 5 back to "TSQL" and saved file.
8. Uploaded file to radio. Decode no longer works...hearing audio.

#'s 6 and 7 are "Bad.img".
FYI...I'll be out of town for the next few days if you need me to do anything else. Won't be ignoring you. Thanks for all your help.

Rick, Yes. It looks like the CHIRP driver removes the tone when it is edited. Hopefully someone will be able to look into this.

So, I guess this is a dead issue?

Updated by Bernhard Hailer over 2 years ago

  • Chirp Version changed from 0.4.0 to daily
  • Model affected changed from (All models) to Anytone AT-5888UV

Not dead, this is still open and will be looked at if one of the developers takes it.
