Version 7.39- 1/1/18

Note: This firmware version requires RCP 7.39

If you have Version 3.5 (or later) pc board, there are now 15 additional Command Macros immediately available for a total of 105. The breakdown of all Macros is as follows:

Macro 1 - 40 - "Long Macros" that can hold 15 Functions each
Macro 41 - 90 - "Short Macros" that can hold 6 Functions each
Macro 91 - 105 - "Extended Macros" that can hold 20 Functions each

The Firmware (and RCP) will automatically detect if you have the additional EEPROM installed. If you don't have the additional EEPROM installed, you will not have access to the additional Macros

If you have a pc board earlier than Version 3.5, you can add the additional EEPROM needed by visiting the Arcom Website Store, where an option board is available. Here is the link:

Link to EEPROM Board Option in online store

Macro programming has changed. The new format is

*4002 * * * , etc........

*2050 xxx yyyyyyyy where xxx is the 3 digit Macro number (001-105) and yyyyyyyy is the DTMF code up to 8 digits

Macro Functions no longer have to be entered as 3 digit numbers. For example, you can now enter 1 for Macro Function 1, 23 for Macro Function 23 and so on

Reworked the Daylight Savings Time (DST) Routines to make them easier to use without requiring any Scheduler Setpoints (Macro Functions 690 & 691 have been superceded by this new method)

New Command:

*2131x yy z where x = 1 is to program the START month and 0 is to program the END month yy is the month (01-12) and must be 2 digits and z is the occurrence of Sunday in that month (1 ­ 5).

Fixed bug in DVR recording where time stopped at 100 seconds if doing continuous recording. Please note that this fix will require re-recording of your DVR Tracks

By default, you will find the actual firmware file (rc2107_39.bin) in C:\Arcom\RC210FirmwareUpdates

You can also find an updated copy of the RC210 Operations & Programming Manual and the related FirstTimeInitialize.bin there as well

Reworked the TX Timer and Counter routines. You may need to reset both after installation if you display bogus data after updating.

Fixed issue where some RTCs exhibited problem with time randomly jumping around.

New method of delivering firmware and RCP updates. See the associated READMEs that come as part of the updaters

Version 7.361- 6/2/17

 Note: This firmware version requires RCP 7.361

Macro SUSPEND/RESUME Functions have been reassigned to accomodate addtional Scheduler Setpoints
You may need to edit your configuration accordingly

810 - 849 Suspend Setpoints 1 - 40
850 - 899 Resume Setpoints 1 - 40

Version 7.36- 3/26/17

 Note: This firmware version requires RCP 7.36

Identified bug in DVR recording and playbug routines related to use of new ISD IC. This caused "stuttering" and bits and pieces of
other tracks to be heard when recording and playing back DVT Tracks.

New Command:

*7007x where x=0 for ISD IC with -04 suffix or x=1 for IC with 05 suffix

Extended DVR Time available if you have the updated ISD4003-05 speech IC. There are now a total of 126 seconds available.
If you still have the older ISD4003-04 speech IC, available time is still 64 seconds

Increased Scheduler Setpoints from 20 to 40.

There are now 3 unique Initial Voice IDs that rotate (1-2-3-1-2-3, etc) only amongst themselves and 3 unique Pending IDs that also rotate only amongst themselves (1-2-3-1-2-3, etc)

New way to program ID's:

*8004x  yyy yyy yyy where x is 1 for Initial and 2 for Pending ID #1 . yyy 3 digit Vocabulary Words up to 22 groups total
*8005x  yyy yyy yyy where x is 1 for Initial and 2 for Pending ID #2 . yyy 3 digit Vocabulary Words up to 22 groups total
*8006x  yyy yyy yyy where x is 1 for Initial and 2 for Pending ID #3 . yyy 3 digit Vocabulary Words up to 22 groups total

New Macro Functions for Pending IDs

692 Play Port 1 Pending ID
693 Play Port 2 Pending ID
694 Play Port 3 Pending ID

There are now 3 unique DTMF Regen Prefixes and associated Port assignments and Macros. This allows for different
Port assignments. For example, perhaps you have both an Allstar and IRLP node, one on Port 2 and the other on Port 3. Now
you can direct regenerated DTMF to either Port by using the appropriate pre-programmed Prefix.

Major change in Autopatch commands - instead of having one Prefix for all Autopatch commands, the following unique codes
may now be programmed:

Hang Up Code - up to 5 DTMF Digits
OffHook Code - up to 5 DTMF Digits
AutoDial Code - up to 5 DTMF Digits
Timeout Timer Extend Code - up to 5 DTMF Digits

In addition, a new Macro Function to automatically dial 911:

336 - Dial 911

 Version 7.32- 2/5/17

 Note: This firmware version requires RCP 7.32

 

When any Courtesy Tone parameter is programmed, the currently used CT is reloaded so any changes made are immediately used

Fixed Timeout Timer Reset to allow for those receivers whose COS line "burps" when its TX drops (such as the Yaesu System Fusion DR1x), as in the case of a Timeout, from bypassing correct TOT operation.

Changed how Courtesy Tones are handled. Previously each Port had its own, 10 unique Courtesy Tones. This led to a great deal of wasted memory space as many users never used all 10 or duplicated them between Ports. Now there is a pool of 10 Courtesy Tones, all of which are shared between all Ports and may be selected as always. Of course you may continue to use Message Macros as a Courtesy Tone if you wish

In addition, the Next/Following Courtesy Tones selections (used to distinguish Linked Ports) may now be selected via Macro Function for more flexibility.

New Macro Functions:

630 - 639  Port 1 Next Courtesy Tone 1 - 10
640 - 649  Port 1 Following Courtesy Tone 1 - 10

650 - 659  Port 2 Next Courtesy Tone 1 - 10
660 - 669  Port 2 Following Courtesy Tone 1 - 10

670 - 679  Port 3 Next Courtesy Tone 1 - 10
680 - 689  Port 4 Following Courtesy Tone 1 - 10

Of course this requires that the Suspend/Resume and Call Other Macros Function Numbers change as well:

860 - 879  Suspend Setpoint 1 - 20
880 - 889  Resume Setpoint 1 - 20

901 - 991  Call Macro 1 - 90

Macros 41 - 90 ("Short Macros") have been increased from 4 slots to 6 slots.

Also, the Scheduler Month of Year function has been reinstated

Version 7.01- 9/23/16

 

Note: This firmware version requires RCP 7.011

Hang time now works on non-repeating Ports

Added new Macro Functions to allow for Scheduled Daylight Savings Time changes

630 +1 hour (Daylight Savings)
631  -1 hour (Standard Time)

Version 7.00- 8/10/16

Note: This firmware version requires RCP 7.00

Added additional Hangtimers - there are now a total of 3 per Port which may be selected via Macro.

New Hangtime Timer programming:

Currently Unlocked Port:

*1000xyyy where x = Hangtimer 1, 2 or 3 and yyy = seconds from 1 to 255

New Macro Functions:

621 Port 1 Hangtimer 1 Select
622 Port 1 Hangtimer 2 Select
623 Port 1 Hangtimer 3 Select

624 Port 2 Hangtimer 1 Select
625 Port 2 Hangtimer 2 Select
626 Port 2 Hangtimer 3 Select

627 Port 2 Hangtimer 1 Select
628 Port 2 Hangtimer 2 Select
