7330 Controller Training Slideset Updated

Today I taught a Repeater Controller training class in the Denver area.  In preparation for the class, I updated the slideset that has been posted on the web site since the last time I taught the class in 2014.
 

7330 Speech Library Update Now Available

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.

Q: How do I test my custom words on my Windows PC?

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.)

7330 Firmware Release 1.6 Is Available!

7330 Firmware Release 1.6 is available.

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.

Another FAQ added to our examples page

We've just added another example to our FAQs and Programming Page.  This one was submitted by an owner and describes how to get a scheduler setpoint working.

7330 Radio Port to Yaesu DR-1X Repeater

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:

Q: How do I delay the PTT on a port after a power cycle?

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.

7330 ScriptKit Available

The 7330 Script Kit can be used as a starting point for configuring the ports of a 7330 with various Port Personalities.  I currently have examples posted for a Repeater, a Wired Link (e.g. EchoLink, IRLP, Allstar, another controller) and a Control Receiver.  You can find the Script Kit and its contents here:
 

7330 Release 1.5 Minor Update

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.
