Shopping Centre switched to DMR

Post by Vrillon » 27 Apr 2019, 22:27

A certain local shopping center switched to DMR recently I flipped on the old SDR and whalla I had the CC TG in a jiffy the whole lot seems to be on one frequency. So it's not like a CAP+ with loads of different frequencies and TGs. But when I popped the details on my trusty MD380 I didn't seem to pick it up. I have programmed in the local hospital and the town shopwatch ok - just can't seem to get this to work - any ideas ?

Most likely a RAS system. Is the Rx LED showing.

The SDR not showing a RAS system it saying its DCC The green light on MD380 is blinking green rx light but no audio.
I tried it on my RT3S also same thing blinking green rx light but it's coming through my SDR ok
The signal is a bit weak though i'm not sure if that might be an issue

I find if its a short Tx or weak signal my DSD takes a good blast to show that the system has RAS.
