I am also having trouble communicating with my 380 simplex digital to my CSI 750 digital. Anybody have pointers for what should be in each codeplug?
Set both radios up with
Color Code 1
TX Contact - Local TG9 - Not in the UK it's not
TX Admit - Always
And of course a single frequency simplex channel, a 2 frequency channel will not work.
normally a simplex channel is used with time slot 1 and I prefer "all call" - others use TG 99 (but then TG 99 must be set on both devices). Screenshot of one of my simplex channels attached.
When I transmit with a MD-380 and a rubber-duck antenna, there is a "motorboat" sound on my transmit audio when using a Retelvis speaker mic. I opened the mic and observed that they are not using a shielded mic cable. When I transmit into a dummy load or an outside antenna the "motorboat" sound is gone.
Has anyone been able to fix this RF into audio problem and what speaker microphones do not have this problem?
The problem goes away when you use the proper mic for it... such as the following unit.

How does that go again...you can paint a old taxi a new color, but it's still a taxi?.....something like that?
I HIGHLY suspect the new MD-390 is NOT a improved model, but the same exact guts from a 380 with a larger battery.
I have lost any faith in TYT to produce a decent product. I had also ordered a quad band mobile from them. We sent that pile of crap (well it LOOKED nice) back to them (on their dime). The receiver was as selective as a crystal diode set.
TYT tried HARD really hard to screw us, but we had Paypal on our side.Paypal got involved and found in our favor 4 times! It got to the point were we contacted TYT and demanded to know how they wanted their shit sent home.They finally gave us a number to use with DHL (their account). Meanwhile we got threats from Joey Pan and his boss "Sophia", they were extremely angry at Paypal for refunding us and told Paypal they could not do that! (they need to read their Paypal agreement).
Would we do business with TYT ever again? NOT ON A BET!
All I can say is this.....buy from a store thats going to back the sale.They are going to be your backup.Ask this question...."What is the warranty period on this product and does it include postage".If you deal directly with TYT THERE IS NO WARRANTY.TYT never wants to see that shit again.
Now if spending $200 on a radio is "Expendable" like fruit that's going to spoil, you are golden, but if you see this as a INVESTMENT..think again.I would love to hear from others that have needed parts support from TYT.You drop your MD-380 and crack the case, or break a knob or control.So far as we see it, the only thing you can get is extra batteries and belt clips.If you have a Motorola, Kenwood, Icom,Yaesu..getting parts is no problem.
