OGR Admin...Please forgive me if this isn't allowed.
A few days ago I posted a topic about the future of DCS hoping to get some answers. Last night, I got DIRECTLY from the MTH Website and MTH Representatives an answer I didn't want.
There will be a future TIU unit. It has been "combined" with the current wireless unit: and shall be called the WTIU. This yet to be delivered WTIU may possibly arrive late Summer. Covid has caused supply chain issues because of lack of Microchips.
HERE IS THE BAD NEWS: The WTIU will NOT NOT NOT work with your Remote(s) or in my case Batch of Remotes. I am dismayed. MTH did NOT include in this WTIU the 900 M. frequency which would allow a Remote to "connect" with it. Why you ask? I don't know. But ultimately, the answer, as it is with everything else, is MONEY.
I personally prefer the Remote(s). Phones are too small and slip out of my hand and tablets are too large to carry around during operating sessions. Remotes are ideal!
Here is the part that I don't know if this is allowed or not on this Forum:
HOW MANY OF YOU WOULD PURCHASE A DCS SET (or two) COMPLETE THAT HAS THE CAPABILITY OF CONNECTING WITH THE REMOTE(S) YOU CURRENTLY HAVE OR WANT? One with 900 megahertz.
IF there are a large enough number of us, maybe, maybe, just maybe, the "new" DCS company may do a special run to include the capability for Remotes to connect???
I can't believe that they are discontinuing the Remotes because the upgraded ones last released sold out immediately! And, Ebay prices are ridiculous. There has just got to be enough of a demand to justify a future run of TIU / Remote the old fashioned way. People are fighting over these and paying outlandish prices.
Please respond acknowledge advising how many TIUs and Remotes you would purchase if a special run was made.
I would buy 1 TIU and 2 Remotes.
