I see in the rear plug pinouts that Pin 11 is low level Rx audio. I need the non de-emphasized Rx audio that is not muted. Has anyone verified that this output is muted under both non or de-emphasized output? Is this output just squelched or is it PL/DPL controlled when muted?

Re: CM-200 pin outs

I'm looking at the M-120 book right now. The HLN8074E logic bd shows a COR output on Pin 8 ( probably active low ). Maybe it can be programmed for something else too, but that's what it is being used for.

If any others pins can be used for said functions, I can work with that.

Are the pin outs and functions for the 16 pin accy plug on the CM-200 the same as the M-120/GM-300?

Can you use the regular Mot RIB box that was used on the M-120, etc with a new GTF cable from the serial port of a computer?. Does the CM-200 program run under Windows?

Looks like the audio module is connected at unswitched A+. I've had a few over time that the audio module became leaky, and you would get crackling in the speaker as you describe. A little troubleshooting with a good scope would be in order.
