Bob's Blog #1: 7330 Digitally Stored Speech

Years ago, the S-COM 7K and similar controllers used voice synthesizers to create speech for talking clocks, talking calendars, announcements, and so on. Users could not add their own words to the vocabulary due to the specialized hardware and software involved, so we contracted with a language lab to offer a word creation service. EPROMs were programmed with word files from the lab and shipped to customers for installation in their 7K SSMs (Speech Synthesizer Modules).

7330 Speech Library Update Now Available

Yesterday I posted an updated to the 7330 Speech Library, V1.3.  This is an optional update that fixes the mispronunciation of the phrase "http://www.".  It also includes an improved version of the letter "S".  We have received several reports of "S" sounding like "F" in some cases and are making this fixed version of the letter "S" available.  

You can find the updated library file on the 7330 Firmware Upgrade page.

Q: How do I delay the PTT on a port after a power cycle?

After a power failure, some radios require that the PTT not be asserted for some amount of time.  You might need this if you have a tube power amplifier that needs to warm up, a Yaesu DR-1X that might lock up, or a Kenwood TKR-x50 Version 1 that switches modes.

This example uses a User Timer (see page 20-1) that is started by the Power-Up Macro (see page 5-28).  Macros disable the transmitter PTT (see page 11-26), then reenable it after the delay time.

S-COM 7330 and the Yaesu DR-1X

At Dayton, some of you may have noticed an S-COM 7330 mounted in a rack in the Yaesu booth between two Yaesu DR-1 System Fusion repeaters.  This demonstration showed how an S-COM 7330 can provide analog linking between two DR-1's as well as with other analog linking and repeater equipment.
