Somehow I missed that page in all the times I looked through the Oncore manuals I have. I see various commands to tell it to change this or change that, but no clear path on how to talk to a UT+ that is mute but not bricked. I'll go back through the PDFs I have. Maybe I just don't have the right document.

>There are a series of init strings you send to any of these modules to get them into the “right” mode. There’s nothing secret about it. It’s all in the manuals for what ever board you have. You decide what you want it to send you and then tell it what to do.
