Transverter Issues 2.4.9 Flex 6400

  • Updated 4 weeks ago
When I went from 2.4.8 to 2.4.9 I am now getting transverter problems on my 144 MHz transverter.  It seems that the Flex thinks the radio is out of valid transmitting range no matter where I go in the band so I can't transmit.  I am also getting no 2m receive.  I prefer not to go back to 2.4.8 but the problem occurred after upgrading.  Everything else seems to work fine in 2.4.9.

Ed,

Can you post a screenshot of your XVTR setup?  This will help me setup in the same way where I can test to see whether I see similar behavior on v2.4.9.

FWIW, I setup a XVTR at 144MHz RF, 28MHz IF and had no trouble receiving or transmitting on v2.4.9 here.

I can verify that my cheap UT5JCW 2m transverter is working correctly with 2.4.9.

What I noticed in your video is that you are adding XVTRs and attempting to remove them before filling out the details.  At this point the client hasn't told the radio about the XVTR because there isn't enough to tell.

Then when you try to remove it, the client attempts to remove the XVTR from the radio (which doesn't know about it yet) and thus nothing happens.

This is definitely a bug in the GUI interface.  We shouldn't show you a remove that doesn't function.  This can be resolved by simply filling out the appropriate fields before attempting to remove the XVTR however.

Thanks for pointing this out to us.  I've entered this issue in our system as #6835 for tracking purposes.
