Re: Newbie question

kc1jmz@...
 

Thanks for this.  If you don’t mind my asking, how do you know?  I went thru the manual again and found 1item that mentions “dim” and it was a menu item.  Is there some other reference material I haven’t found that contains it?

Thanks!

You missed the part about the dim wire.

Leave the orange unconnected for base use.

It's the Alert Light you want to set in the channel options.

If you need more details, feel free to ask.

I'm certain everyone seeing this has figured it out and having no wish

Re: Signal interruptus

Rick Newman
 

I do have WX priority enabled which I will disable immediately. The flashing I can live with but not the broken transmissions. Regarding the alert light settings I now have some direction and I thank you very much for all Joe!

The P25/DTA/LNK will flash as a system is scanned. This is normal.

Be sure you have disabled: WX Priority, Channel Priority, and Close
Call, as those will also create gaps.

The alert light can be found under the Alert Light settings in Sentinel
or in the menu.

Check this out:

<<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXE_qGciV6E&;t=12s>>

Around 1:31:30 is the display color setup.

Alerts are at 26:30

I don't think they cover the startup message but that is in the profile editor (EDIT / EDIT PROFILE) in the DISPLAY OPTIONS tab.

Re: The so called noise or hum depressor. SDS200 Noise Mitigation with Factory Part

Joe M.
 

It may not matter, as it is the same thickness either way. If I was pushed into an answer, I would say the one the factory installed is correct. But again, it may not matter.

Do both units you have eliminate the vibration?

Yes. Each system has a settings for Units. That is where you put the RID and any Alphanumeric you want.

Yes, it is possible. You program the Radio IDs under Unit IDs.
