Hi again, Fraank N3FLR
Been researching your problem with being a SGate, The irony is that this TM-D700 radio has been around for several decades now, and the old APRSIG has been archived.
Anyway, found some links, but are dead now, so will just throw the copied text out that I had cribbed long ago here, below, or attached.
I could do more for you personally if you could copy the radio's TNC settings and the separate APRS memory settings as they are now, and post here but will keep it online for others who may wish to follow your lead in support of Sgate while your mobile is parked..
First put the radio in the Program Mode (PM 5?) you want to use as a SatGate mode, and then attach a Win computer to run the Kenwood radio MCP**.exe for your TM-D700. to read the radio memory and APRS page settings of that current SGate Program Mode (PM status) into the MCP program and then save as a MCP file, like SGate-as-is.700 file.
NOTE: as I recall, each PM # 1-5 must be saved separately by selecting the PM on the radio, saving each with the Kenwood program Five times, (PM off is default, I think, but make a copy as PM off.700 file)
Next, you could run a simple packet program to read the TNC settings of the radio. With the radio menu keys, switch out of APRS mode to PKT Mode, and issue the TNC built in a DISPLAY command and save all the TNC settings to a *.txt file NOTE: Control C sets the TNC to command mode.
