Re: Quantro info

Picture I can do. Anything specific you want to see? The board part number is TLD9920. The schematic should be around here, but it wasn't in the service binder - just the UHF and 800 modules. You know how it goes, somebody takes the page out of the binder and forgets to put it back. (and that somebo...

Re: VHF Quantro PA fail problems

I'm pretty sure I have spare PA's for Quantro VHF repeaters, but I would need a couple days to look. I'm also quite sure I have the schematics. Took forever to find that specific service manual. I needed the schematic for the power supply - which is also a unique beast. Looks like the MSF5000 supply...

Re: VHF Quantro PA fail problems

Hi, "Driver overdrive alarm" would suggest to me that you need to do a PA alignment. It's fairly simple to do and outlined in the RSS manual. If you have the circulator and low pass filter in your unit, they need to be bypassed, which is also covered in the instructions. Also make sure the...

Re: CLN6960 w/intellirepeater fw external PTT

Hi,

Thanks for the response. As I mentioned, we swapped the SIMM with NIR firmware and confirmed it worked. This is a large commercial system and a firmware change would be impractical. It seems Motorola has a bug or just left that part of the code out of 6809 IR code.

Hi, As mentioned, I have a Quantar with a CLN6960 SCM running Intellirepeater FW 20.14.520 and I'm trying to get external PTT to work running as a 6809 controller. I have tried from the MRTI interface and the 50pin telco, but no glory. If I swap the controller with a CLN6961 (or any other convention...

Re: Quantar repeater showing "PA FAIL"

If the repeater is accessible and you can connect a computer to it, go into the service menu and look at the error log. It will usually give more (a little) detail about why you're getting a fail light. For instance, if the problem is high SWR - the error message will say that. I once had a failing ...

Re: Windows 7 with Astro 25

I believe the way Windows Vista and 7 handle driver signature is configurable as a Group Policy object. Windows Vista by default is set to prompt the user to continue and it seems to me that I read in Windows 7 Release Candidate documentation that the new default would be to disallow the driver.
