Re: found d700a remote head

Luke Bugler <k0ltb@...>
 

Curious what did you pay for it?  I am also looking for one for my D700a that the control head went bell up and is not repairable. So if another one appears I would be interested.

Re: setting up memory groups

So there's no mistake, My last info for Memory Groups was for trhe D710.

 

In essence, the first of the three Memory numbers *IS* the Group number.

Re: setting up memory groups

Mike,

 

   The group that a frequency is in is determined by the Memory Number you store it in , when you store the frequency.

 

Example.

Around home, let's say you store those frequencies in Memories 00-99.  These are now in Group "0".  Around Home, you do Group Scan on Group "0" by selecting one of those Memories ( 0-99) and Start Scan.

 

When you travel to area "A", lets say that you store those frequencies in Memory Numbers 500-599.  These are now in Group "5"

 

I picked those so if you have more than 100 frequencies in your home area.  In that case, you can put more Home Area frequencies in group 1 in Memories 100-199.  Then, you can LINK Groups "0" and "1" and all 200 "home" area frequencies are scanned together (0-199).

 

Hope this helps.

Kenwood has a different approach to memory groups - they are determined while saving memories, not after the fact. So, any frequencies you save to memory channel numbers 0 through 99 will automatically be in Group 0, those saved to memory channels 100-199 will be in Group 1 and so on. See page Scan 2 of the CD owner’s manual.

With the recent demise of my GPS,  I am looking at using my 700 as a base station,  and getting a 710.  Is their someone that has both that would be willing to contact me off list?  I am especially interested if it is scratch and snip capable as the 700 was.
 
Thanks & 73's

Sometimes you can trick it.  159.2025 may fall into one of the frequencies that work with the 6.25 kHz step size.  Switch to that step size and then try programming again.

Re: D710 repetitive restarting

David Ranch
 


Few things come to mind:

  - pop out the fuses in each of the holders, squeeze the contact holders together a bit and put the fuses back in
  - when you turn the radio on, start tapping the TNC button as soon as to get it to turn off

Now.. does the radio stay on?  Try setting the radio to low power and transmit.  Does it reset?  Try medium and then high power tests too.

Re: D710 Inhibit APRS beacon

Randy Allen
 

Are you talking D710 (per the subject line) or D700 (this being a D700 group)?

For the D710:
Menu 601, set DCD Sense to "D or RxD Band".

Using the MCP-2A software, look under <Menu>, <APRS/NAVITRA>, <Internal TNC>, <DCD Sense>, "D or RxD Band"

For the D700:
Menu 1-6-2, <TNC>,<DCD Sense>, "A and B Bands"

Using the MCP-D700 software: <Radio Menu 2>, <DCD sense>, "A"and "B" bands

Hope this helps

Re: TM- Operation sans Head

Jim Nagle
 

One software package I previously used was the D700 SunSat SW

http://www.qsl.net/g6odt/d700.html

 


Re: TM- Operation sans Head

noskosteve
 

 

Yes.  The D700 can be programmed and operated via computer-serial port.  It can also be operated WITHOUT a control head via the serial port.    I think someone else made a computer mirrored control head, but don't recall who/where...  I played around with a control hear replicadisplay also, but only started setting up the display format and didn't couple it to the commands.

 

It can also send and receive APRS messaged via computer.   I did some APRS messages and also email testing though the EMAIL server, but it's not in the released workbook. 

 I also started adding the ability to do WinLink email, but never completed the macros.   Winkink takes more than one APRS message to send an email and you must ping the Winlink-APRS server to receive your email since ordinary email can't cause a ham transmitter to transmit.

 

If anyone wants to play with the macros, the workbook on my site is open source.  If you are serious about doing some programming for email, I'll even send you what I can find with the email testing stuff --- whatever it is -- I don't recall much off the top of my head but could get you pointed in the right direction...perhaps.  It's been a while since I played with it. but I do try to comment my code well.

K9DCI - Amateur Radio Control 

 

It wouldn't be too difficult to add a macro to send the 35 CRs to turn it on (or off) to my existing code, then use the spreadsheed to use the radio.  It is not a control head look-alike interface, however.  you would enter a freq, then click on it or another button to tune there.

 

The following is the contents of a Jan 2011 document that I surely must have uploaded into the Files area, or at least posted here: 

 

D700 operates Without Control Head.docx

 

The following applies WITH or WITHOUT the Control Head connected.

  You can turn on the D700 radio from the serial port. The command is simple ASCII "PS 1" no quotes, end with a Carriage Return (CR) character. In Hex this is &h50 &h53 &h20 &h31 &h0D.

HOWEVER ONE WON"T DO IT.

  It appears to be an issue of having serial port activity for some time period because of the following observations.  I never traced out the schematic to see if there was something between the serial port and power circuitry to verify this assumption.

 

  Typing manually with Hyperterm, it takes 2 or 3 PS 1 commands.

  Testing at 9600 baud, it takes about 35 characters to wake up the processor to then accept the command.

  I found that sending 35 or more CRs followed by the PS 1 CR works well. In HEX this is 35 &h0D's then &h50 &h53 &h20 &h31 &h0D.  The CRs dont do anyting to confuse the processor because it ignores them until it gets some other characters that it tries to interpret as a command.

 

  Other characters work, but if you have more than 35 before the PS 1 command, the radio will balk at the invalid command the characters represent and respond with "?". The number 35 seems to be slightly different for different characters. Sending complete PS 1 commands takes 8 of them which is 36 characters before the final command. Sending from 32 to 34 CRs in the "prefix" will turn on the radio, but it responds with "?". This is not recommended, use = or > 35.

 

  I did find some variations from the 35 character "prefix" that would both power up the radio and respond with a "?". Then, subsequently sending any other command resulted in receiving a PS 1 from the radio. It has to get that ) the invalid commands) out of it's system, so to speak.

 

  When the radio powers up, it responds with the same thing as the command, namely "PS 1".

 

  I also found some variations (usially 2 or 3 less characters) that did NOT power up the radio, but responded with the "?".

 

  Less than about 30 or 31 characters of prefix has no effect (no response from radio).

 

  I did not do any exhaustive testing of other commands once powered up sans head, but a few worked normally, so It's a safe bet that everything that can normally be done from the serial port also works and pretty much normal radio control is possible. I know that there are some things that can only be done with the Control Head, however, I do not have a complete list compiled.

 

  I also have a free for the download Excel spreadsheet that does control and memories including ALL PMs. I'll have to add the power up sequence and basic volume and squelch capability in the future.
