The reference frequency is the frequency of the internal reference. This determines frequency accuracy of the frequency synth and the A/D converters. You can use the ref freq value printed on the labels that the device came with or if you are currently monitoring a P25 Control Channel and the device has had some time to warm up, you can use the "Estimated Reference Frequency" shown on the "Signal Insights" page.
By default, the configuration software has two options "auto flash" and "auto disable encrypted" in the talk-group editor tab enabled. As new talk groups start coming in, the "auto flash" will write each new talk group to the P25RX flash memory. As it is writing to flash, there is a brief interruption to the voice audio output. If you have a system with many talk groups, you might find it preferable to disable the "auto flash" in the beginning and just manually write the entire list of newly discovered talk groups when you are ready using the "Write Talk Groups" button. This will prevent the audio from being interrupted every time a new talk group is added to the list. Once you have a near complete list, you can re-enable the option so that any new talk groups that come in get captured to flash automatically.List Alternate / Adjacent Control Channels

Reset Configuration To Default Values
If you decided to experiment changing various things with console commands and used the 'save' to write non-default values to the flash memory, you can always reset to factory values with the
command in the console. This will reset configuration to default values and reset the device.
Troubleshooting - BTConfig will not start in Windows
This isn't happening for most people. If this happens on your system, this is very likely due to Windows Defender blocking the application. It is reported that Windows Defender may not even warn you that this is happening. You may have to start the software manually on the command line in order to see the reponse from Windows Defender. At this point, you will be able to verify that the application is ok for Windows to open.
