> Subject: [TenTec] 565 V3.032x5 released on TEN-TEC Website
> It is ready for download.
> Be sure you read the release notes for it, 34 items modified.
> It will require the usual Master Reset/RAM Clear sequence.
> Some default values have changed due to requests from MANY users, so, read
> the release notes, and change them back to something else if you prefer.
> Let me know if you all find any real interesting items.
> This release also addresses an issue Rob Sherwood has been discussing, how
> impulse noise can load up the AGC on the 565/566.
> Now, when impulse noise comes in (e.g. an electric fence), it will not load
> up the AGC, making it hard to copy just after the noise pulse disappears.
> With the previous release, the noise pulse may sound as a quick snap, and
> then no audio until AGC decay brings back the nominal receive audio.
> With the 3.032x5 release, the noise pulse will last longer, could sound
> like a scratch or crash (which impulse noise will sound like when NB is not
> turned on), but when the impulse noise goes away, the nominal receive audio
> is back to the same level it was right before the noise pulse started. If
> the sound of the impulse noise is objectionable, then the Noise Blanker
> will remove it anyway. That is what the Noise Blanker was intended for, to
> remove spurious impulse noise.
> If you find anything that needs attention, let me know.
> I want to thank the beta team and developers for spending the last several
> months hashing through this, I couldn't have made this release without
> their help and support and holding my coals to the fire.
> The release is located at the TEN-TEC Transceiver Downloads web page, along
> with the version history if you want to peruse it before downloading.
> Transceiver Download direct link:
> scroll down to 565, find "Firmware Ver 3.032x5" on the right hand column,
> click to download the installer, then run it, look for a new "Start"
> The revision notes are at the same location, middle column, or, I've added
> the link here:
> Thanks, and 73,
