Good morning Team Ailunce. Last year my original HD-1 got killed due to an interruption of data, when my hotspot received a transmission and my radio received it also. That radio is completely dead now. I had extensive contact with Yolanda on several Zoom contacts, but she was unable to resolve the issue, so I purchased a 2nd HD-1. I would like to send you my original HD-1 for service please. Please advise me where to send it, Thankyou. John McGennis Serial No:1801AHD11103322

i did a firmware update to my HD1. It completed normally. The radio is unresponsive. Even tried the MENU EXIT to initialize. No response. The radio does allow me to repeat the firmware update with no problems. Do you have any recommendations or is this radio no useless?

Hi, I bought a Ailunce HD1/DMR/GPS Handheld unit. Install is the Firmware Version V2.17. Do I have to install an other Firmware to work with APRS?. As mentioned in the blog! Version 1.60?. Do the Version V2.17 support the APRS/DRM function? On your firmware list, I dont find version 1.60, there are V1.64, V1.66, V1.68. The USB drive I have found is for Windows 7. My Laptop ist working with Windows 10. Where can I find the new version. Thanks in advance for your Help best regards Carlos

You only need to install the latest firmware directly.

On my HD1GPS radio, the option to switch between CH Mode and FREQ Mode with the "EXIT" key has stopped working. I already made the update to version 1.7.1 and I have restarted the services, but the error is not solved

Did your radio has a channel? If no, it is normal can't switch VFO and MR. Short press "EXIT" to switch VFO and CH. if still have issue, please email hams@ailunce.com

Salve. Non riesco ad aggiornare il firmware del mio hd1-gps. In pratica ho scaricato l'ultimo firmware, l'ho decompresso, ho lanciato l'eseguibile. Alla fine dell'installazione, quando chiudendo la stessa di dovrebbe lanciare in automatico il programma (il flag è spuntato) in pratica dopo qualche secondo sparisce tutto. Se provo a reinstallare il programma mi dice che risulta regolarmente installato. Hai idea di cosa possa essere che blocca il programma?

I am getting the same virus warning as the previous post. I allowed the program to run on a VM and it did update the radio as expected. It is a little concerning that the updater required run as admin rights just to access a serial port. Here is the report from virustotal: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/f96328d9de0f202a7ab0156a3fe776da824ac1e84197b913a84e46e7b29d74d9/detection
