Before updating your firmware, check your current version

 

  
Anything above this message is made for the CS800D that is FCC Part 90 certified. You should not use these versions if you have earlier versions of the CS800D because this version will allow your radio to transmit outside the ham band.

This is a special test version of MS 20.57 designed to test the DMR decoding in those older radios that are having problems. This is version MS 20.36 with the known bugs removed and the enhanced DMR decoding. Important.... The current hardware of the CS800D is not FCC part 90 certified and it is therefore illegal to use your radio outside the HAM bands.

You can only use this program if your radio is already at version MS 20.05 through MS 20.58. Updating to this version starting from any other version will brick the radio.

You can only use this program if your radio is already at version MS 20.05 through MS 20.58. Using this version starting from any other version will brick the radio.

Firmware Version MS 20.36 (bin)

July 25 , 2018

This hopefully clears the problem where a conversation cuts out in the middle with a strong signal. We believe this was caused be going from the C5000 baseband chip to the C6000 baseband chip. The firmware did not account for new sync patterns that is allowed in that chip that did not happen in the older chip.

We could no longer get it to fail in the direct mode but we could not test it with our test equipment in the repeater mode. Please test it and tell us if the problem seems to be resolved.
