The messages at RR say that the DB should have been updated this morning. But when I try to update from Sentinel it just says I have the most current DB. Either RR has not yet updated (some four or five hours past when they said to expect it) or Sentinel somehow is not seeing it. I am very unfamiliar with the RR site. Anyone know if they have updated yet (the ham frequencies are what I want) and if Sentinel will see that update normally?

The latest database was updated 9/11/11. Did you check the version of the database on the HP-1?

Go to Menu, Advanced Menu, Version information. As far as if Ham was updated I don't know.

The radio ref people were announcing a major update to their db for this morning 9/15, which apparently has not gone live as planned as yet. It is that update which is supposed to contain thousands of new repeaters. My question is when this is released will HP be able to take it all in?

The changes have been made, look at the DB pages and they are different. As for the HAM repeaters, I think those like all other ites will have to be submitted to RR and entered by admins just as they have been for everything else.

Thanks. Their announcement rather made it seem they would immediately be listing the repeaters. But if they are going thru the submit process I guess it might take many weeks. Darn.
