Re: Orion hand held control head info wanted

I got my HHC installed on the Orion today. Installation was a snap with everything completed within an hour. I had to give my Orion a firmware uplift from G36.x as the HHC manual states the Orion series needs to be a G41.x or higher. I did this with system head attached, then swapped heads and blew ...

Orion reset issue

I have a functional VHF Orion installed with a SS2000-ERCSN1 and SVR-200U in my vehicle. Everything is powered from a Blue Sea 6 circuit fuse panel, fed with 6ga from the battery. Everything worked A-ok until I installed a Sho-Me signal stick and tried to power it from the SmartSiren. I assigned a s...

Re: Orion with Pyramid Repeater HELP!

I got mine to work yesterday after I dug up some notes I made years ago and confirmed with Ken's info above about the I/O settings...that's the good news. The bad news is the volume of the repeated audio varies with the control head volume control. I parsed this from the Orion list... The history of...

Astron RM-50M problem

*x-post from the 'lab* I got a free Astron 50A linear 12V supply that blows it's 120V fuse at power-up. There is nothing connected to the supply, so this is an internal problem. I know these supplies aren't the best, but it was free because of the problem...so I am willing to spend some time and mon...

TK-730 scan

I have a 32 channel VHF with the "deluxe" head that I enabled dual priority scan (P1 as selected channel and P2 as OpSel) but I can't seem to OpSel the P2 on any of the channels?

Am I missing something in the keystrokes on the head to make it happen?

Thanks Ken... I think I will do that, as it's a VHF conventional radio.

Talkaround button for Orion control head?

I have a full button kit, but it's devoid of a button for talkaround.

Anyone have one that says "DIR" or "T/A" or similar?

Smart6- I got your PM and replied but I'll post it here as well. The SS is connected to the Orion with a shielded data cable that ships with the SS2000-ERCSN1 from the FS factory. It has a DB9 on the SS side, and a DB25 on the control head side. The DB25 plugs into the enhanced options cable downstr...

I did figure out what the problem was...

I had the siren function tied to the ignition sense line, which I did not have hooked up so the siren thought it never had power and wouldn't work.

1 box un-checked in Programmer took care of it, and the entire system works great.

TK-7180/8180..any users here?

Looking hard at a set of them with remote kits, but nobody I know has them. Who's got 'em, and how do they compare to a MCS2000 or Spectra?

VX-424 VHF portable...any good?

Anyone have experience with this new unit? I see it covers down to 146 MHz, but does it go down to 144 MHz in the software?

Any input appreciated, especially soon...
