Re: packet

Greg Morris <gdmorris707@...>

One other thing I wanted to tell you is that I have everything set on 9600 baud presently. I try to set it all to 1200 baud and things "don't" happen and I get gibberish or computer stops talking to TNC etc. If the data I hear is being broadcast at 1200, is that why I can't see it? Like last night 5050 was just going to town and I had a good strong signal, but nothing. O well good night.

Thanks John, so yes it's communicating but why
did it not understand the command?
There is a startup script for the TMD-700 in the
scripts folder. The first command it sends is

AI 1 ( not AI, AI 1 )

Take a look at the script. You should be able to
run the script from the Scripts menu item in Winpack.
Try running Scripts:Play a script:TMD-700 initialization

Ok, first of all, thank you guys for jumping in
to try and get me going. The following is my setup.
1. Computer, in device manager / ports
(com/lpt), communication port set to 9600, port (com 1)
2. Software: Winpack V6.80
   a: baud rate set at 9600
3. TNC
   a: Aux 1-9-5 (com port) = 9600
   b: Aux 1-9-6 (data speed) = 9600
4. TNC Packet , TNC on
Now to address the serial stream. I tried the
AI, AI 1 at the command prompt but I get a
return of    ?EH then back to cmd: so
I don't know if it's on or off.

So what is ?EH, hey this is getting more fun.
Soooooo what do you think? thanks again
?EH means that you sent a command to the TNC that it did not understand.

In a way, it's a good sign, in that the
indication is that you're successfully talking to the TNC.
