Radioddity GD-77 (super) Promiscuous mode

Promiscuous mode has already been defined. The Radioddity GD-77, running OpenGD77, can be described as operating in Super promiscuous mode. This mode follows the promiscuous mode definition but will also ignore the timeslot and color code when monitoring. This means that if you were connecting to a repeater you would hear anything on timeslot 1 and timeslot 2 and any color code. This can be an excellent thing in itself (smaller codeplug definitions), but also complicated. When you hear a transmission on that repeater it can be dificult to figure out where and what was behind that transmission IF you wanted to join in or respond.
