AR-DV10 AR-DV10 Receiver Firmware Version 1806B Update June 12, 2018 Download: (889kB) .D10 Download: (532kB) .ZIP

Firmware version history:

1806B 2018/06/12
Feature improvements:
- Optional COSPAS-SARSAT distress beacon decoder function added to firmware. (To enable this feature you need to purchase an unlock key at Operation instructions will be provided by Prosic.)
- Discriminator direct recording to SD. To activate discriminator recording, open a text file on your PC. Inside this text file type the word "DISC" (in capitals, just the letters DISC) and save this file as DISC.txt. Copy this file to the SD card. Insert the card into the receiver. Whenever the receivers sees this file, it will record the received audio in "discriminator" format (Limited to FM mode, 6kHz, 15kHz and 30kHz bandwidth only). Discriminator audio is an unfiltered signal, also called baseband audio. It is required by some PC applications decoding data signals such as CTCSS, SCA, FSK, RTTY, FAX, Pager data, and trunked system control data, etc... For details we invite you to ask Google.
- WAV file playback now displays playback time stamp, and percentage of total length info. Possibility to fast forward 1.3x, 2x, 4x.
- Fast frequency tuning. Rate of tuning increases depending on how fast the dial selector outer knob is rotated.
- All terminal commands now implemented, except for timer and alarm. The detailed command list will be available online at a later time. However 95% of commands are the same than for the AR-DV1 receiver.
- "Hold" added to DELAY selections in SEARCH GROUP and SCAN GROUP.

Bug fixes:
- Import of SRCHBK.CSV file to receiver produced some errors.
- The ON or OFF setting of "Digital signal info display" sometimes not reflected on MEMCH and SEARCH.
- CSV import: Frequencies without digit after the decimal were rejected.
- Digital info display did not stay on screen until frequency change.
- CTCSS/DCS behaved erratically on strong signals
- Other minor fixes

Firmware version history:

1805A 2018/05/08
Feature improvements:
- When backlight is set to AUTO, when squelch opens, the backlight is activated for 5 seconds.
- Audio normalization for all digital modes, to reduce level differences between modes.
- Digital signal info display (DIGI DISP) now set to ON by default.
- STEP ADJUST can now be set in the EDIT and OPT pages.
- FREQ.STEP now adjustable for AUT1 (digital-auto) mode.
- During MEMCH, SEARCH and SCAN, the bank can now be changed on the fly with the arrow keys.
- D-CR (NXDN) scramble code now displaying when found. Also works during SEARCH and SCAN.
- Receiver sensitivity improved during MEMCH, SCAN and SEARCH.
- Default STEP size for D-STAR, YAESU and ALINCO changed from 20kHz to 10kHz.

Bug fixes:
