Your suggestion almost worked! My system does not have CONVerse type ports available - do I have most current version? I only downloaded less than a week ago and it updated itself.Follow the instructions at the following page to switch to Development mode and you should have an CONVerse port type.
Yes, you can keep that port type as it has the proper interpretation. Simply replace all of the <Open/CloseCmd>s with the following No-Op pair. If you don't have at least one, APRSISCE/32 will put back the defaults.
Note: ~ suppresses the default <CR>, !! says no expected response, and the 0 says no timeout.
Yes, that would be expected.
I need to play with the radio settings to see if I can get the GPS coming through. If so, simply checking the GPS/NMEA checkbox on the port and subsequently enabling the GPS should work. If Enable GPS is grayed out, then APRSISCE/32 doesn't think it has any location source. Do NOT attempt to configure an NMEA port to talk to the D74. That won't work. But if you have a dedicated GPS, you'd configure that through the NMEA port.
Sometimes you get lucky!
