Re: TM-D710G TNC and VHF Winlink

Jess K5LLI - Thanks for this, as I do not have the TM-D710 model.

I am able to run WinLink 2000 with my Kenwood TS-2000 radio connected with a direct serial cable to an older desktop, or a more modern notebook computer. The TS-2000 radio has a built in TNC supposedly the same as the TM-D700  without the APRS mode.

Another thing, I have used my TM-D700 mobile with the built -in TNC to send Winlink 2000 multi-line email without a computer/keyboard. Good for the emergency sitrep communication without any file attachments, but slower than using a keyboard. Search for APRSlink for this technique that allows 'last-mile' Internet doe multiline email with APRS.

Its rather simple. You just need kenwoods serial cable hooked up to a computer. You can use a USB to serial adapter or if you want to get fancy a bluetooth to serial adapter. Then set the radio to TNC mode and run the Winlink software.

Ladies and Gents,

I would like to extend my use of Winlink from strictly HF/Winmor using an FT-857 to VHF using the D710G's built-in TNC.

Would anyone like to point me to a configuration table, drawings or procedures for initial setup of the D710G?
