Welcome to AVRT7 group

Bill Lionheart
 

Welcome to the AVRT7 group. Please post your questions and helpful hints for getting the AVRT7 working and getting the most out of it. Having "bricked" my first one upgrading the firmware I was sent a new one, and it seems to be running except I have not got any packets to aprs.fi yet so it is a work in progress.

Photos, screen shots, config files related to the AVRT7  are also welcome in this group.


The main language of the group is English, but if you cant read and write in English we will do our best with Google translator!

Yahoo group was deleted?

SARTrack Admin
 

Only after getting the email about this new group, I discovered that the Yahoo group has been deleted, without me getting any email about this... How long has the old forum been gone?
And is the Chinese firmware developer now also on this new list, or have we lost him?

Does your AVRT7 have Wifi?

Bill Lionheart
 

In the config software  Config 20160728 it has a setting for Wifi SSID and password but not in Config 20150721. Does it have a wifi chip?


When I try to set the wifi parameters and hit the Apply button it gives me a write error

Hi Bart


I didn't know there was a Yahoo group for the AVRT7. On the AP510/AVRT5 Yahoo group I was told not to post questions about the AVRT5 and it was suggested I start a new group for that. As for the developer, I sent an invite to BG6QBV Baobinlin. He is one of the call signs listed in the documention. I also invted the email address listed there (maybe that is the other developer BI7NOR.


All the best

Yes, there was a Yahoo group for it, with information and files, and it is all gone now...

AVRT7 Plus TX/RX ???

Dimitrios Valaris <dvalaris@...>
 

Hi all,
Has the AVRT7 Plus got a transmitter or is it a receive only device?

It does not transmit at all, despite the fact it has a transmitter. Not even a beacon.
Its basically useless.
They develop a very advanced piece of hardware, and then send it out with a incomplete firmware, and then just drop it.
Its been on my shelf for a long time, might as well throw it in the bin.
