Gate is encouraging all users to update the security software of the ASTER modules. The reason behind this is the detection of an insufficient level of protection against the effects of a strong electromagnetic field generated, for example, by PMR devices with a power exceeding European standards. According to somewhat enigmatic statement by Gate, with the current version of the software "interference may cause accidental firing of an AEG when it is not in safe mode". This probably means that the replica can start firing at any time. In turn, the words about PMR devices "with a power exceeding European standards" should probably be interpreted as referring to, among other models, the very popular Baofengs and similar devices, which have 5 W transmitters.

Users of the ASTER module who bought just the module (without the programming connector) can now buy the said connector at the Gate online store with a "50% discount, free shipping and a free return within 14 days" for 74.50 PLN.
Module users who do not want to change the software themselves should contact the stores where they made the purchase.
Also, Gate also announced the release of a beta version of the GCS (Gate Control Station) software for PC and MAC, which supports the ASTER module.
