Not sure if we can call it a lock up let me explain whats happening.
Repeater is not transmitting,
Tried the unlock code for the controller and then reset code of the controller Nothing.
We get to the site open the front door to the cabinet and repeater looks like everything’s normal, Its receiving signals.
I key the repeater up and the controller COS and CTCS Lights come on and on the repeater the transmit light is on and it switches from auto / auto to Fixed no transmit not receiving on another HT
I check Digital it stays in auto/ auto and I see the TX Light comes on and no transmit not receiving on another HT.
I pull the plug and plug it back in, repeater goes back to normal, both analog and digital.
We are not the only ones experiencing this issue its been going on since the first Firmware upgrade.
From what I was told Yaesu knows about the issue but has yet to provide a solution.
If you watch this video this is exactly what happens except not handing on top of the repeater controller RC210 is in a rack and transmitting radios are miles away. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEZF93evWIg
This is what the owner of Arcom said about the problem
“It is important to realize that the problem is
NOT the ADR but within the DR1x itself. When the
ADR was first designed, it worked 100% of the
time with the DR1x firmware but Yaesu made
changes in subsequent versions that no longer
rendered the fix for their flaws, bulletproof.
However, the ADR still drastically reduces the
amount of issues with the DR1x and an external
controller but it can’t overcome the
still-existing issues in the DR1’s firmware.”
At this point we can not recommend a Yaesu repeater to anyone very disappointed in Yaesu at the moment
