VX-454/VX-459 MDC emergency call

Post by ai4ui » Tue Mar 15, 2011 11:00 pm

We just purchased some VX-454 & VX-459 VHF portables for interop with forestry. I have been working with the software to build a template to program them from. It's pretty easy to work with except I am having trouble with the MDC settings. How do you set the radio to encode a MDC1200 emergency call? I can see where it can decode one, in fact it can encode & decode all kinds of MDC features. I can't for the life of me figure this out.

I have the orange top button configure for emergency, and when it is pressed the radio transmits with an open mic for how ever long I set it for, it just won't send the MDC emergency burst.

Any ideas?

TIA
Robert
