Lynn,
 The tnc is an MFJ1279X and yes, it's configured in APRSIS32. Received nothing.

Re: KWD710(APRS):DigiPeating Not Supported on KWD710(APRS) Protocol Ports

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

The "OK" message simply means that the port has been opened and the connection configuration is valid.  It does not reflect "proper" operation of the protocols over the port because "proper" does not have a definitive meaning.

APRSISCE/32 does not support digipeating over a KWD710(APRS) protocol port because this port type is a kludge and hack and is not directly supported by Kenwood.  What APRSIS32 actually does is yank the radio out of APRS mode any time it needs to transmit something and then puts it back into APRS mode when the transmission is complete.  During these mode switches, packets can be lost.  As you can imagine, the frequency with with a digipeater transmits would not be good.

Also, because Kenwood didn't envision this use of APRS mode in their firmware, the radio can (and does) get confused about what MYCALL is while operating in this mode.  Sometimes it is the callsign-SSID configured into the radio, but after APRSISCE/32 transmits, the radio will adopt the callsign-SSID of APRSIS32 until the next time the TNC is reset.

KWD710(APRS) mode is nice when you want to use the 710's internal APRS capabilities and still pass packets on to APRSIS32 for mapping and better display.  But it really isn't good for APRSIS32 to do much transmitting IMHO.

But, given that APRSIS32 is trying to digipeat, at least we know that packets are coming in from the radio now!

Re: Download and install

You need to delete the APRSIS32.XML file that is in the directory where you execute APRSIS32 from.  That way it will recreate all settings.

The bar you describe though, appears when you're executing APRSIS32 from within the downloaded .ZIP file.  You need to UNZIP the download into a newly created empty directory and then double-click APRSIS32.EXE from within that directory, not from within a zip file viewer.

Yeah, those RT systems cables are pretty solid... 
They used the FTDI chip set, so they aren't nearly as flakey as cheaper USB dongles.
I had a Keyspan once... key word being HAD... it was never reliable for me, so I give it to someone that swore by them.. 
I'm sure he swore AT that one tho...

Crikey!
So today I used the programing from RT Systems ... THEN never unplugged
from the back to put it back on the Control display box.

Thanks. And before I ask the next in a line of "How do I do this"
questions, I will pull the list and see if they exist when the cables go
to the right places.

I am using the USB-K5G Radio Cable that came with theTM-D710G Programmer.

Previously I was using a Keyspan which converted the Rig's RS232 to USB
...HOWEVER, I had a lot of trouble with the Keyspan "going missing" on
my Dell ....I tried activating (did) the COM1: and jut plugging in the
serial cable as designed ....Dev Man showed COM1: at 9600b but the
computer never saw the rig on COM1 ..... thus I decided to use the RT
systems' already programmed cable.

But it would help if I plugged it back onto the "COM" socket instead of
leaving it on "PC" .

thanks for the help.

Trying to understand the Log from "Port(KWD710(Pkt)"

KD7YZ Bob <kd7yz@...>
 

when I look at Configure- Port and Port(KWD710(Pkt), the box seems complete.

Enables Port Port(KWD710(Pkt) is checked.

Re: MultiTrack window sizing problem

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

Make sure you do not have the main window maximized when APRSIS32 is closed.  With a maximized window, some settings are not saved.

On the MultiTrack, get one set up the way you want it and then hit each of the Preferred options: Percent, Size, and Zoom.  If you want MultiTracks to open in View / None, you can hit that one also.

If that doesn't do what you're after, post here again.

The main window for APRSISCE/32 is just fine.  It's just the MultiTrack window.

Re: GPS problem

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

Roy,

You found the thing I saw immediately, so all is good.  You probably just need to make sure the device is in full view of the sky, at least to get the initial fix and the almanac to get updated.  After that it might be able to hang onto a fix for longer.

You can turn off the red dot by unchecking Configure / Screen RedDot if you want.  And if you want to know what it's about, see:

Lynn, I appear to have found the answer. Looking at the data file I attached I noticed one of the sentences mentioned only a single satellite was in view, Of course this is not enough for a fix.

I tried a few computer reboots and finally when I left your program running for awhile it started showing satellites. Though watching the red dot bounce around can be distracting, hi.

Still not got soliid gps performance, but it looks like the cause is outside your program so I'll stop bothering you. Tthanks for your help and the fine software.

Lynn, I appear to have found the answer. Looking at the data file I attached I noticed one of the sentences mentioned only a single satellite was in view, Of course this is not enough for a fix.

I tried a few computer reboots and finally when I left your program running for awhile it started showing satellites. Though watching the red dot bounce around can be distracting, hi.

Still not got soliid gps performance, but it looks like the cause is outside your program so I'll stop bothering you. Tthanks for your help and the fine software.

regards, Roy

Please open and enable the NMEA trace log and capture some of the sentences from it.  I can compare them to the code and figure out which one is saying there is no fix.

And it may be that your internal GPS doesn't provide the sentences that give the satellite information.

Using Win 10/64 on a Panasonic Toughbook with built-in gps. Windows sees the gps on Com3, 4800b and other programs have no problems using the gps.

The NMEA port is set to Com3, 4800b and the GPS is enabled.

Enabling the NMEA log shows the expected data string scrolling from the gps.

The main screen tells me that NMEA is OK, however it also tells me there is no fix. There is no gps satellite info at all.

Thoughts?
