Greg is nearly correct, but for one
detail. You want a KISS-type port in APRSISCE/32, not one of the
Kwd* port types. The latter are for the newer D72 and D710s.
As he said, it is imperative that you have the radio's TNC in
Packet mode BEFORE starting APRSISCE/32 or enabling its RF port.
If you lose communications with the radio for some reason, you
have to close APRSISCE/32 or disable the RF port, ensure that the
radio's TNC is in Packet mode, and then restart APRSISCE/32 or
enable the RF port.
With these pre-conditions, it should "just work".

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 with
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!
