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.
