Albrecht AE6890 Software Bugs Can Now Be Fixed

Post by simon007 on Wed Apr 21, 2010 7:17 pm

[size=16]Technical Information AE 6890
Softwarebug in production until December 2008

Dear customer,

unfortunately we have discovered two small software bugs in AE 6890.
1. Beep tones (BP) on off: in exactly the following situation can happen:
You have disabled the keyboard beep tones by pressing BP.
Now you try to change the channel display into frequency display
This procedure will not work, the radio performs only an internal
reset and produces
2 x beep tones and starts again.
Solution:
Change the sequence:
First let the beep tones remain activated,
Now change channel number display into MHz display
Now you can deactivate the beep tones, if desired
This softwarebug is solved from factory for units with serial numbers higher
than
: 08120101
The software bug is not solved at units with lower serial numbers and also not
at units with serial numbers between
08120 510 und 081201010 .
2. Priority channel
It is not possible to select one of the German channels 41-80 as priority channel. Up
to now, the priority channel can only be selected from the international channels 1-
40.
We prepare a software update, which removes both bugs. In cases, where a priority
channel between 41 and 80 is necessary, we will offer the replacement of the front
panel PC board soon. In such cases please contact our service dept. via e-mail

under service@alan-electronics.de or (+49) (0)6103 9481 22

I have NOW BOUGHT a new version of this radio and it works a treat

Hi,
Just read info on software bugs on the Albrecht AE6890 cb radio with associated serial numbers.
I can tell you that my radio's serial number is 100 or so above the serial for the bugs not to be present, yet my radio still has these bugs present.
Just thought I'd let you know.

Cheers Ian

Hi Harvoy, They work well actually and have a nice receive and the transmitted audio is really nice. Hope to hear you on the air with it sometime soon
