Digital End Code detection

From The RadioReference Wiki

Note that this function is not available in version 1.xx.xx firmware

Version 2.x.x Firmware

To activate the new "digital end code detection" feature - which is distinctly different from the "end code" option that is readily available in the radio's standard menu

  • Turn off the radio.
  • Press the HOLD button and turn on the radio again. Once the radio boots, release HOLD
  • Press Menu
  • Select Program System
  • Scroll to the system in question (i.e. Baltimore City). Select it.
  • Scroll to & select Edit Sys Option
  • Scroll to Digital End Code and select this.
  • Change from the default of ignore over to Yes.
  • Then, just get out of menu.
  • Could then turn radio off & back on again (to again get into regular operating mode).

This will allow the radio to move on from any given talkgroup once the unit has ended their transmission - and importantly, the radio should no longer wait until the repeater un-sticks. You'll have to set this for each and every digital system you are having this issue with.

comment: This likely applies to the 996 as well (ka3jjz)
Thanx to DoctorDave in the Maryland Forum for this procedure
