Thanks Greg! I've never had this problem in the 2.5 years I've had my NCE Cab. It's turned on every time and always connects to the base. I assume you'd had this happen? Does it just not turn on or turns on but does not connect to the base? How did you resolve the problem before the modification?
Got my radio upgrade from NCE. Holy Smokes! The range is unbelievable. It used to be 40' beyond the base and commands rarely worked. With the upgrade I did a "Versizon" type test starting at 40' and moved further by 10' and sent a whistle command. Kept moving 10' at a time. I kept hearing the whistle blow. I ended up at 350' and it was still working!!!!! I still don't know what the range is because I haven't hit it yet. Wow!
Also, noticed better response on commands. For some functions before I noticed a delay, now it seems immediate for every function.
