This post is actually a combination of different “Tips & Tricks” I previously wrote in the knowledge base. I’m not going to explain all settings again. Just hit the tags in the sidebar most of the subjects discussed here are filled under “Button Mapper” and “Zello“
Since a few weeks I’ve got this new found love for the first Network Radio I bought: the Inrico T320. As you all know, i’m a huge fan of Telo, I love the build, the audio quality, the design … and especially the big touchscreen. So for a while I was very happy with my TE-590 and I still am. But preferences changes over time. Ever since I started using Walkie Fleet at home and at work, I struggled with the dual app that needs to be configered: Zello for Hobby and Walkie Fleet for Work and Home use.
And now the thing that first led me away from the T320 is actually the thing that I most love about it: Its keyboard. I’ve found out that with most big touchscreens I often accidentally hit the screen and disable or enable stuff! The smaller screen on the T320 is less sensitive and in combination with Button Mapper I’m super fast in changing Apps, settings, channels, …. So here’s a short description on how I set up my Inrico T320:
There’s a moment in your Network Radio career and probably in your general Radio career as well that you have several different devices connected to different technologies or networks. This often results in dragging around multiple handheld devices to stay connected with your favourite fellow radio folks on their own networks. We have Zello, ZelloWork, WalkieFleet, Real PTT, Echolink, PMR, DMR, … and so on.
Personally I have a private WalkieFleet Network for me and my family (Clan Caignie), a professional WalkieFleet network for my crew when at work and I use Zello to keep in touch with my favourite Network Radio buddies. So that’s three networks to monitor. Actually two, because when at work al the rest is shut down, to keep focussed. When at work i only run the Family WalkieFleet network on my Smartphone in case of emergency if my wife or kid is are in trouble. So I end up with two networks that I would like to monitor at the same time, Zello & my Clan Caignie WalkieFleet network. And as we all know, most PTT applications are not social pieces of software. They all think they are the center of the “PTT universe” and claim the PTT button. I’ve written some articles about using multiple PTT applications on one device and most of them work fine but sometimes you wish you just have it all in one application. This was the starting point from were NR001, ZRB003 , NR0216 and me NR515 at www.zelloradiobenelux.be started testing.
