Re: Not receiving RF after a while

Lynn Deffenbaugh

Please send your APRSIS32*.LOG file(s) to me at KJ4ERJ@....  I'll be glad to take a look at them.

I monitored your station's RF reception reports as well as other stations hearing your beacons and have attached that log.  It appears that you were working fine from 16:33UTC (when I started) through 17:27 after which your statio was still transmitting and being copied by 2 digis on the way to the KX4DOR-12 and KQ4G-1 APRSIS32 IGates.

Your station again starts receiving RF at 01:19UTC and continued to receive through 02:51 when I captured the log.

Question: How do you run your squelch?  Is the PK232 capable of doing tone detection and running continuously open squelch or does it need the radio to squelch to be able to hear "quiet" in order to transmit?  Is it possible that you have the squelch set such that when conditions get a certain way that signals don't open the squelch to allow the TNC to hear for decoding?

Did you restart the TNC or do you have any idea why the reception restarted at 01:19?

And the station is still receiving as I type this message.

Well, I let it run all day today, and it looks like its still having the same problem.  It is transmitting fine, as shows that my station was heard 3 mins ago by my nearest digi.  But the last time any station heard me (including that same digi) was around noon (pasting below, if this works):

I looked at the log file, and my novice eye does not see anything obvious. I'd be glad to email the log file to someone if you're willing to look.  Otherwise, I'm at a loss of what else to try.
