Re: PSAT NO-84

Hi Lynn,, I want to let you know that I followed your instructions and was successful adding NO-84 to the Satellite Details List. You weren't kidding when you warned me how many satellites would be added. There are so many now that the HIDE UnChecked option isn't working.Once again thank you for all your help.

A little history regarding some of the satellites...  Some of them (I think 84 might be one) were launched on the same rocket as some classified military stuff, so the distribution of the Keps is a bit spotty (veils of secrecy, and all that).  I think the Amsat.org lists are complete; the others may not be.

Re: PSAT NO-84

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

What satellites you see depends on the TLE file that you loaded.  If NO-84 is included in your TLE, you should see it in your Satellite Details window.

NO-84 is supported by SATSRV (http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/doc:satsrv answering to NO84, NO-84, and PSAT) and there's an object called PSAT "flying" in the APRS-IS showing this APRS-capable satellite.  Just add o/PSAT* to your Add Filter terms.  or o/PSAT*/ISS* to see both the PSAT and the ISS.

Re: Search & rescue (SAR) and APRS

The programming cable from RT Systems should work fine for bringing out the APRS data once you've got the radio configured to do so. I'd suggest a terminal emulator connected to the radio's port and monitor for decoded packets. They should be humanly readable and show up every time you see a new packet reported on the radio's faceplate.

The 1200 and 9600 baud connections are actually audio that would be connected to a traditional TNC. There's a different connection, included at http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/ftm350, for the actual serial communications. You need to connect to the TXD/RXD pins, not the RX96/RX12 pins, which actually carry audio.

With a TNC connected to those ports, the “other side” of the radio might not be useful for anything but receive.
 
With another radio at another time, I had a TNC connected to a radio port. Whenever the TNC sent a packet, it would be on the side I was talking on since it was the active side. It may operate differently for the FTM-350/400 but I suspect not.
 
I finally gave up and picked up a radio (FT1500) just for a APRS. Then my dual band was useful again.

I have since learned that radio and pc prefer 9600 baud so, changing radio pin 5 (1200) to radio 4 (9600 baud) and removing the radio input pin 1.

The FTM-400 can output received data to an APRS
client. Unfortunately, you can't send data back
to it for transmitting.

Did not know about the audio on those pins, with that info the 8 pin din on the FTM-350 to laptop serial cable, I will try this connection:

Radio           Laptop

2 gnd             5 gnd

7 TXD             3 RXD

8 RXD             2 TXD


Looked for the ct-142 and I can purchase it but also I already have the programming cable from RT Systems. It is USB-81, going from 8 pin din to USB.  It does great for programming, I am going to try it next before doing anything else.  Should have a little time this evening before the grandson get here.  I hope it works!!

The 1200 and 9600 baud connections are actually audio that would be connected to a traditional TNC.  There's a different connection, included at http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/ftm350, for the actual serial communications.  You need to connect to the TXD/RXD pins, not the RX96/RX12 pins, which actually carry audio.

Re: Search & rescue (SAR) and APRS

Rob Giuliano
 

It appears Bob is getting 2 connectors confused.

I am a bit confused on whether you are talking about the FT991, FT1500, or FTM400?

Most 6-pin DIN to TNC "audio would be 1-TX "audio", 2-Gnd, 3-PTT, 5-Spkr (1200 baud audio), 4-Discriminator audio (9600 baud), and 6-Carrier detect (inverted logic).

I believe the FT991 would best be used with DireWolf or other sound card TNC.  The USB interface includes a sound card interface for PSK, Packet, and other digital modes.  This should work well with DireWolf or other such applilcation.  Not sure how they handle the PTT, but likely built in somehow.

According to the FTM-400  manual, there is no 8-pin miniDIN, but a 10-pin miniDIN.  You are best off ussing a 5-wire cable:
 2-gnd                            DE9 - Pin 5
 7-TXD (Data out to PC)           DE9 - pin 2 RX (Data from radio)
 8-RXD (Data i n from PC)         DE9 - pin 3 TX (TX data to Radio
 9-CTS                            DE9 - pin 8 (RTS)
10-RTS                            DE9 - pin 7 (CTS)

First radio I've seen with both audio and pc interface - leave it to Yaesu.
