It's been a while since I tried the D7, but for me it "just
worked". Be sure that the radio is on and in packet mode (not APRS
mode) before starting the software, and that you've got the D7
configured for the right packet rate (1200 vs 9600). I believe I
used the regular Kenwood TNC type in APRSISCE (I did this from an
old HP iPAQ Windows Mobile phone), no mods to the config file.
Should be the same for the PC version.
If the radio is resetting when you turn things on, it might just be
that the battery is too low. If so, the radio will reset when it
tries to transmit.
I am trying to configure a Kenwood D7(a) to work
I can not get the software to work with the radio.
I have tried all the various modes. My serial cable
works....I have set up the port in all the different
configurations and no luck with it working. About all I
can get it to do is shut off the TNC lol.
Has anybody set up the radio to work with the software?
Any and all advice would be welcome!
