Yesterday I posted an updated to the 7330 Speech Library, V1.3. This is an optional update that fixes the mispronunciation of the phrase "http://www.". It also includes an improved version of the letter "S". We have received several reports of "S" sounding like "F" in some cases and are making this fixed version of the letter "S" available.
You can find the updated library file on the 7330 Firmware Upgrade page.
When building a custom audio library from individual words or phrases, it's useful to be able to quickly play those words from the raw files stored on your Windows PC instead of going through the entire process of building and downloading a custom audio library to the 7330 only to find it doesn't work. The way most of us play a custom word on Windows is to run Audacity, import the file, then play it. (See page 23-13.)
The major feature in this release is the initial release of the Analog-to-Digital Converter support. Analog input voltage readings are now available on the console serial port. More about this feature:
-- analog input voltage readings are displayed on the new front panel display command.
-- analog input voltage ranges of 0-to-5 and 0-to-25 volts are available.
Thanks to all who came by to see us! We had a great time this year! As always, we appreciate the input and feedback on our products. Only 51 weeks until the next one!
The Yaesu DR-1X is a multimode repeater that supports analog voice and digital voice.
The 7330 can add functionality to the DR-1X in several ways:
After a power failure, some radios require that the PTT not be asserted for some amount of time. You might need this if you have a tube power amplifier that needs to warm up, a Yaesu DR-1X that might lock up, or a Kenwood TKR-x50 Version 1 that switches modes.
This example uses a User Timer (see page 20-1) that is started by the Power-Up Macro (see page 5-28). Macros disable the transmitter PTT (see page 11-26), then reenable it after the delay time.
Earlier today I posted an update to the S-COM Configuration Utility that was introduced in Release 1.5. This update fixes a defect in the interpretation of Scheduler Setpoint commands for Day Codes 40 and greater. The previous version of the utility was 1.0.1. The new version is 1.1.0. This update is available on the 7330 Firmware Upgrades web page.
