Re: Trouble with OT-USB

Rob Giuliano

The missing [C0] means APRSIS32 is expecting the OT-USB to be in KISS mode, but it appears you are taking it out of KISS mode with your OPEN commands.  Both seem to be the same issue - not in KISS mode, but APRSIS32 thinks it should be.
What type of port did you setup in APRSIS32 for the OT-USB?
  It doesn't appear to be simple KISS because you have OPEN statements being sent to the TNC.
I suggest looking through the OT-USB manual and finding how to configure it up in KISS mode.
Then delete the current OT-USB port in APRSIS32 and create a new one with SIMPLE KISS (if the OT-USB stays in KISS mode when set that way).

I'm having trouble using my OT-USB with aprsis32. It seems to be intermittent with it working for a while and then it will quit.
2 different problems are involved. the first shows up as

This missing c0 also occurs when I get an RF input with the error message including what looks to be a good reception of a APRS beacon.

The second problem happens after working for say 10 minutes

Most of the time I have to restart aprsis to get communication again and sometimes I have to reboot. Help....

Am out of town so have to go to the library to get internet, so will be slow to answer any further questions. Thanks
