Re: RF Enabled?
STA light? My 1278's STA is normally off. DCD flashes with RF traffic, and the CON LED seems to blink briefly after a good packet is received. I do see the STA light flash briefly when sending a packet, but it goes out before PTT comes on (which could be a few seconds later if the TNC has to wait for a quiet spot before keying up).toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
My 1278 is configured for KISS mode, but I have APRSIS32 set for KISS (not simplyKiss) so that I can return the TNC back to normal mode by exiting APRSIS32. I believe I used the default KISS settings in the XML file (never edited them), at least as they were years ago when I first got it running.
The particular TNC that I have is a second-hand (or worse) 1278T, and I think it's in a more-or-less default configuration, but no guarantees on that... I think I paid a dollar for it at a white elephant sale... (well worth it, as it turned out.)
