    I'm a newbee getting ready to go to the big red machine (Roehl) in less than a month and I've searched high and low for a qualcomm manual online. I'd like to be very familiar with it's usage prior to my @*# hitting the chair in Wisconsin, if possible. Doe's anyone know of a link to a pdf (or any doc.) or a good (free) website that covers the common uses of qualcomm. I've seen some helpful youtubers vids but none are very in depth.
    Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Just search "Qualcomm mcp200 manual". The mcp200 model is what's mostly used at Roehl.

    Thanks for the effort, it seems these are dead end links, as I've encountered before. You'd think I was trying to get my hands on plans for a surface to air missile or something. Very guarded proprietary info apparently. Thought maybe some companies might've turned their drivers onto a training site or downloadable file to refer to.

    I worked for Roehl for just over a year. The e logs aren't hard to use, hopefully your trainer will show you the ins and outs of them.

    Yeah, they seem pretty straight forward, I guess they're built on a windows xp os plarform and seem fairly intuitive as far as menus and button labels go. If you can work a smartphone I guess it'll sink in fast enough. Just trying to get a head start to make things easier on my poor trainer lol.

    Thank you very much...this is an excellent source for becoming familiar with qualcomm. To help others out I'll say that you must have OpenOffice (or similar freeware) or Microsoft Office in order to view these pages and save them to your PC.

    Most drivers don't use q-comm, they call on the phone with dumb questions and annoy the dispatchers. Never could figure that out.

    Lol...maybe it's a form of retaliation... I feel for the dispatchers nearly as much as the drivers (caught in the middle, so to speak), though it seems some power trip or make a hobby of chapping @*#es.
