[App_rpt-users] Maxtrac as a remote base

What I do is tap off the channel up and channel downs on the back of the
head.  Pulsing those to ground will make them change channels.  The
Radius and Maxtrac are pretty much the same radio with different
firmware.  I am not sure if the maxtrac would do the BCD method...

Thanks Jim for entertaining and working on the new and undiscovered
application!

The GM300 series of radios will do channel-steering, by using a BCD
design of up to five bits to select between 32 modes. I don't recall if
the Maxtrac's will do that, but its certainly something that could be
linked back into a macro, etc.

That's an interesting question. Obviously the USB device has a couple of
outputs on
it that certainly could be accessed by the chan_usbradio and/or
chan_simpleusb
modules and controlled through app_rpt. The URI was also designed with
this in
mind, being that we brought all the outputs out to the connector.

In nearly 10 years that this project has been going on, you are the
FIRST person to
even ask this question or show any interest in using these outputs. This
is the main
reason why I never bothered to implement this functionality.

Sure, it can be done. Yeah, Ill work on this. Heck, even if you're the
only person that
ever uses it, at least you can benefit from the work involved.
