HD1 Bug reports By Beta Testers


BUG The input impedance of the HD1 device is not adequate. Strong mismatch causes low sensitivity (less than similar radio equipment) when connecting the radio to most antennas, both portable radio antennas and fixed antennas, and increased errors in DMR.
Consequently this impacts both FM and DMR transmissions / receptions.
Measurements carried out with the Vector Network Analyzer were sent to Ailunce and passed to the engineering group.

Not BUG “ Encrypcion not work through dmr repeater “
BM and other networks do not permit this. Also not permitted on most Ham License

BUG „Call log will show any call type, not only Private Call. “
Must have way to turn off pop up window

BUG Analogue Pop up window displays frequency & Code and it needs to show the Channel name as well.

BUG Analog UHF via a repeater the pop up window times out and no way to call it back up again apart from changing channel.
BUG Analog Squelch seams to tight and its not letting traffic through on setting 1
Have to turn OFF to keep it open
Receive could be better as getting drop outs when I should not be with open squelch

BUG Channel Information – RG Group Lists
Address Book Contacts shows as 1
Needs to show the name of that list as in RX Groups lists
Also on Right column the same change

BUG Promiscuous – Main On / Off option from menu Needs to work for Talk Groups and Reflectors

BUG The battery Percentage indicator not very accurate. The level below 40% drops of much quicker. Should be an easy fix in firmware.

Wish List The light green signal strength meter is very hard to see. (BLACK)

Wish List In the pop up window can we remove the top blue line and text. Put the A or B in the bottom right after the frequency number. This will make the window 2 lines bigger and give room for text lines we need.

Wish List Promiscuous add CC and Time Slot info

Wish List TOT time out needs a audio sound 10 seconds before dropping TX.

Wish List Do we really need Save under Main Set
I run with OFF as many will
Also if its being kept can it be named RX Power Save in the Radio and CPS

Wish List Scan VFO
Would be nice if you could have a Start and End Frequency so it only scans them.

Wish List Menu 6 Contacts – Manual Dial – Radio Number
This is Private call
Would be nice if you pushed the # key to swap over to contact mode
This is done on the Hytera radios

Wish List Adhoc option for Talk Groups and Reflectors

Wish List No Microphone Gain

Wish List RX audio leveling would be nice to keep all audio at same level / volume

Wish List When you have booth A and B screen up and you push the Red Exit will swap from channel to VFO on both. Really only want the active highlighted one to swap
When one A or B is selected to be primary it would be nice to have it full screen and not show the clock.

Wish List Supper Low Power Required – 0.5W

Wish List When you change Zones in the radio and hit confirm can it be made to go straight to the main radio with out having to hit the red exit key 2 times

Wish List Option to change ALL background colours (Including pop up window)
Option to change Text colours (Including pop up window)

Wish List Digital Monitor fuction to show all info on transmissions, including TX and RX frequencies, CC, Time slot, and Radio IDs


Wish List ONE KEY CALL (Bad Wording) Should be linked to the Keypad keys not key settings

BUG Channel Information – RG Group Lists
Address Book Contacts shows as 1
Needs to show the name of that list as in RX Groups lists
Also on Right column the same change

BUG Address Book Contacts. Read radio first time and showed all. All other times since it reads the radio but no info shows up. Also does not seam to save the contacts you have read on the pc when you save the code plug. Reading radio could be made faster BUG Error Warning. If you get any error warning windows and you click OK to close the windows the CPS closes down. This means you will loose all non saved works.

BUG Channel Information – RX list
Will not remember if you add a single RX number from Priority Contacts.

BUG RX Groups Lists
Address Book Contacts – You have to go look the number up (Contacts – Address Book Contacts) you want and then go back and add it. This is not going to work at all and needs to be changed
Priority Contacts – When you move to right window it does not remember it after you close the window and open it again.
In short the RX Groups List is not working at all, no matter how we use it

BUG Address Book Contacts
This needs to be a search box –

BUG CSV file has to be loaded manually every time you open the code-plug
Can this not be fixed to load by Default.

BUG HD1 driver that is available on the Resources Centre does not seem to be fully compatible with more current versions of Windows than W7. Text information in the driver zip file is in Chinese.

Wish List Priority Contacts – Import CSV files

Wish List Key Setting – Need more options like the RT3
Long and Short press do not have the same options
Analog Monitor does not work. Set it in the Key Settings and save
When you go back it moved to another setting.
Can not find a key to open squelch

Wish List Address Book Contacts
As you can not edit the contacts do we need this window as it it is
Just need the header and a counter to say how many contacts

Wish List Channel Info
VFO could do with a C and D Channel
A = UHF analog
B = VHF analog
C = UHF digital – Promiscuous – slot 1 and 2 and all CC D = VHF digital – Promiscuous – slot 1 and 2 and all CC

Wish List VFO Scan
QUICK Save to memory (Channel) if you do find activity from the scan.

Wish List Zone
In each zone need to be able to move Channels up and down in right column
Ability to Set zones as a default as we do use many zone and this changes depending if you move to a different area for a day or week etc

Reports by others

Wish List How about simple DTMF functionality for analogue useage.
Wish List Possibly a side key function to monitor analogue repeater input frequencies?
Wish List Scan speed is extremely slow at four steps per second. Perhaps this speed could be increased to make it more functional?
Wish List Audio alert when “Relay Fail” occurs?
Wish List It would be nice to have the codeplug version available in the CPS header to show which of your codeplugs is being displayed?

Wish List A detailed CPS Help file or a hyperlink to a help file location would be “helpful”! The Help tab on the CPS only gives version type. Change the word Bate to Beta!!

Wish List Noticed that during writing / reading to / from the radio (Code-plug or Address Book), the Write or Read operation failed (stopped or corrupted data) if a QSO is received. Is it possible that before starting a read or write operation **Receiving** (from the radio) is switched off (killed) by firmware for the time the process is running?

Wish List Audio feedback tone really needed in DMR mode i.e. for repeater access success or not and roger bleep for DMR mode

Wish List Possible manual RX attenuation function?
