I have two GTR200s, one 200B and one 200. The 200B does not have any sound through the ICS (GMA240). I can see on the display where it's receiving (RX) ATIS and on GND I can see it transmitting (TX) when I hit the PTT. But I don't hear anything.

The 200 works perfectly in both racks. Loud and clear! I've tested this with both radios installed and with just one radio installed.

It's a new radio and I'm setup to return it to ACS but I'm wondering if I'm missing something in the settings. I did the settings per the installation manual.

Anyone else have this happen?

Hello Jeff,

Since you have a dual COM installation with an audio panel, the intercom function must be disabled in both the GTR 200 and GTR 200B. If you have the intercom enabled on the GTR 200B, you can't hear it through the audio panel intercom.

None of the Bluetooth functions of the GTR 200B (e.g. music and phone support) are available when the intercom is disabled.

It is odd to have a GTR 200B in an installation with an audio panel, because you can't use any of the Bluetooth features of the GTR 200B, so you may as well have 2 GTR 200 radios.

To have Bluetooth music and phone features in a dual COM radio installation, you need a GMA 245, not a GMA 240.
