Just a quick post to say, why isn't this post easier to find? Maybe make it a sticky or put it in the FAQ? (unless I missed it there?)
Long story short: radio stopped working, I replaced the module. 2 months later it stopped working again. Was going to replace the module, but then other things went wrong. I suspected the battery, turns out it was on its last legs. After replacement, radio was responsive but no DSP, it wasn't recognized any more. Thought it might need replacement, but found this thread. Went through the procedure in this thread, everything came back to normal.
I suspect that my original radio module was fine, and if I had thought of checking the battery then, all would have been ok.
Seems to me like all radio debugging should start with a battery check, and a reset of the system using this procedure. It might save a lot of time and money on changing radio modules...
