Yes, the location of Me is what is used for the posits from APRSIS32.  And with the GPS disabled, it should be transmitted based on Time only.

Seem to recall you told this to me once before.

And I have my Lat/Lon (from the GPS outdoor ant) already programmed into the D710 .... so vis-a-vis APRSIS/32, will my Pos be xmit, now, based on the ME-Center, when a beacon from APRSIS/32 is issued?

With the GPS off, simply zoom in and pan until the center of the crosshairs is where you want to be.  Then hit Transmit.  APRSIS32 should ask if you would like to move Me to center.  If it doesn't ask, you're not zoomed in close enough yet.

Eric K9LGE,

Regarding HF operation, not to my knowledge.
Technically, the Kenwood TS-2000A may be used mobile, although I haven't attempted it.

Or, you could just tell you APRSISCE what your position is and turn off the GPS. It isn't a "Mobile Home", probably.

Ah, thank you. Smart-Beaconing.
So since this is home and the rig on the bench, always, I need to turn off SmartBeacon ... right?

Cuz, other than Plate-Tectonics, I am not moving.

Subject: [APRSISCE] 'Red Dot' meaning?

This morning I see a red-dot, few pixels, hovering/drifting about my "ME"-House location indicator.

It's 12 degrees(f) and I am guessing some ice on the outdoor little GPS dome. might be affecting the GPS coord's.
Sometimes, down at the bottom of the window, I see mostly 51 green ....other times this AM I see a lot of Red's and oranges.
Is that the cause or meaning of a Reddish orb hanging about?

Though I see all greens (GPS Sats) now and the Red Orb is a dozen miles NE of me.

hmmmm.

Pat,

Didn't one of the older Kenwood mobile dual band radios do that as well (or had a third separate output) for APRS?

One day, had to work HF split using the A/B function, and both the MAIN A and SUB B sides displayed the two HF frequencies, yet when the APRSIS32 program sent a beacon, the TS-2000 SUB B side momentarily displayed the VHF 144.390 as it transmitted, and then reverted back to the HF frequency display.
Just verified, in VFO mode,  working VHF Split, A side 146.52, B side 146.55, and forced an APRSIS32 TRANSMIT. Same thing as above, the B side reverted to the memory APRS frequency for duration of transmit, then back to split transmit frequency of 146.55. Of course, being on same VHF band caused audio to drop out for a bit.

Re: APRSIS23 HF APRS & PTC-IIex

John Brent - VA7WPN
 

I used that script, I had to change the pac1: to pac: as my PTC-IIex output is pac:, otherwise I was getting errors.

But..

Once the command "pac baud r300" is issued, when the next command "pac" or "kiss" is sent, it resets the TNC. 

But.. when I check the baud rate using "pac b" it tells me that its in R300 (Robust Packet) mode. It won't start kiss via "K", "Kiss" or "@K", or enter the packet menu without rebooting. The only way I can correct this is by using the command "pac b 1200" or any other baud rate to get out of robust packet mode.

Re: APRSIS23 HF APRS & PTC-IIex

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

If you use a terminal emulator, what is the prompt after entering each command manually?  That's what should follow the ! in your <Open/CloseCmd>s.  Test it on your TNC and you'll know what is correct regardless of what other people with other hardware and/or firmware might be telling you.

But those messages are not fatal, they only slow down the opening as it has to wait for the default 1 second timeout before going on.

I belive it is looking for a pac1: responce but the PTC gives a pac:. A number of people have told me that the pac1: is correct. but I am doubting that.

Thanks for sharing!

Yes, Windows seems to like the COMM port connection created by BlueTooth better than using the BlueTooth wizard and settings.

Hello Rob,

solution found - when creating a new port in APRSIS32, instead of taking the Bluetooth connection (originally I used this one, because the modem connects via Bluetooth only), I took COM-Port connection using settings of the PC serial to Bluetooth connection. Now the modem is running without problem in RPR mode controlled by APRSIS,

Thanks for your efforts!

Re: SCS modem card TRXPTC

Solution: although the modem connects via Bluetooth only, use COM-Port when creating a new port in APRSIS. PC settings of serial-to-Bluetooth comport applied, APRSIS32 connects and controls the modem.

I remember seeing something about waiting for cmd: and that it times out.
Can you post your open and close commands from the XML?
  The original ones you used that expected the cmd:, not the Simply(KISS) ones.
  I assume that is the response from the unit when in command mode?
  Couldn't find that in the manual, and I don't have one to check.
  If not, what do you see in HyperTerminal (or TeraTerm, etc.) when connected and you power up the unit and it is waiting for input?

From what i can find, I think something like this might work:
<OpenCmd>^013!cmd:!2</OpenCmd>
<OpenCmd>@K^013!cmd:!2</OpenCmd>
<CloseCmd>^192^255^192^013!cmd:!2</CloseCmd>

I release this will actually give 2 <Enter> commands (^013 and the one already provided), but I sometimes find this enusre the cmd: reply comes up.
That and setting QuietTime to 0 (at least for a day) and see if that provides any success.

The cmd: must match the response fromt he unit when waiting for input.

Hello Robert,

thanks for your comments. The answer to all questions is YES, the test with Simply Kiss was done with same result. However, I have been connecting today the modem using APRSDROID via Bluetooth to work in RPR as a tracker. So I assume the recommended XML file for use with APRSIS32 is not compatible.
