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.
There are two different data rates to be aware of.
The first is the data rate between the computer
and the radio/tnc. That should be 9600 baud.
The second is the data rate on the packet network
itself. That can be either 1200 or 9600. In most cases, it's 1200.
There's a limited amount of 9600b packet going
on in some parts of the country, but mostly it's 1200.
So your settings should be 9600 between the
computer and the radio/tnc, and 1200 selected for a packet data rate.

Thanks John, so yes it's communicating but whyThere is a startup script for the TMD-700 in the
did it not understand the command?
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 inI don't know if it's on or off.
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
Ãƒ‚ Ãƒ‚ Ãƒ‚ a: baud rate set atÃt atÃƒ‚ 9600
Ãƒ‚ Ãƒ‚ Ãƒ‚ a: Aux 1-9-5 (com port) ort) = 9600
Ãƒ‚ Ãƒ‚ Ãƒ‚ b: Aux 1-9-6 (data speedspeed) = 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 ofÃƒ‚ Ãƒ‚ Ãƒ‚ Ãƒ‚š Ãƒâ€š ?EH then back to cmd: so
?EH means that you sent a command to the TNC that it did not understand.
So what is ?EH, hey this is gettingÃƒ‚ more fun.
Soooooo what do you think? thanks again
In a way, it's a good sign, in that the
indication is that you're successfully talking to the TNC.
