Understood. And this software and AMBE2 Codec connects with someone's network, (You still didn't say which network) using the HB or home-brew protocol which was designed for repeaters and hotspots.

Thank you very much for your reply but I do know about PTT
activating the selected talk group; However, I am not using a Repeater or a
Hotspot or a Transceiver. I use the new ThumbDV 3000 in just the USB port in
my PC. The first time the Tx light lit up and a friend heard me Tx but not
when I pushed the PTT to transmit again and not just to un-key the transmit. Yes
I do use BM. Thank you and 73, Doug…KD8YVD
Looks like you have cross posted to more than one list? I
have two messages from you already?
Don't care how fast your laptop
is or if your ThumbDV is old or new...
OK, so it's helpful to know
what master and network you are connected to.
I suspect you misunderstand how PTT or push to talk
talk-groups operate? The first time you transmit, you activate that
talk-group but that first transmission is not forwarded to other repeaters (or
directly connected clients / hotspots)... The first "transmission" is
simply an activation for the talk-group. (Again assuming standard
configurations for systems like Brandmeister)... For a period of time (again
assuming network and how it's configured) that talk-group is the active
talk-group... But it will eventually time out (except when the network treats
you as a hot-spot and not a repeater)... Anyhow, this might explain why one
transmission works and another appeared to not... Now, as to switching
talk-groups and still hearing 3100... Again understand that PTT on the
talk-group is what triggers the network to feed you with talk-group activity.
When you "switch" to 310... nothing changes on the network until you
PTT to activate the talk-group.
You can PTT on Talk-group 4000 to clear any active
talk-groups (again making an assumption that you are talking about a US based
BrandMeister master connection.)
I have no idea about any prompt that says "negative

I have a 2.2 GHz Lap Top; windows 7; latest blueDV for
windows and a new ThumbDV 3000. After installation: (1) It
transmitted and received ONCE on group 3100 but not transmit the second time
but stilled received on 3100?? (2) Switched to Tac 311and it displayed it
but it still was receiving 3100?? (3) switched back to 3100 but Prompt says
"negative Lock" and will not lock on any group now?? I am 71;
disabled and visually impaired. If you have a suggestion please let me
know. 73, Doug...KD8YVD doug.enoch@...
