Re: GMC install?

Steve Ponnath
 

I have installing in a 1999 Suburban right now. The main unit is under the rear seat and the head unit sits on a Ram Mount stalk that attaches to the passenger seat bolt. I use Ram Mount exclusively now. Very good product and I can configure at will.  Also holds my CB and two iphones.
 
Also, will be placing a FrontRunner Outfitters roof rack with back on the roof so I can mount antennsa anywhere and not drill holes in the vehicle. The basket should provide a good ground plane and no drill solution.

Subject: [TMD700A] GMC install?

 

I have a 2014 GMC Sierra SLT with a center console.  Looking for any advice on install of a D710.  Looks like there is room under the front of the console with access via the side panel.


Thanks,


Joe, KC0NOX

For console applications with a no-drill approach, I'm using a universal mounting solution from a company called pro-fit international on my D710.

The company is rather small, not much on customer service in my opinion, but they have a great product. If you follow the directions on the mount to the letter, and let the adhesive patch cure for a few days before attaching the rest of it, it'll give you a really good adjustable mount for the radio's control head.

Sorry, should have mention that I have the extended cables between the radio main unit and the control panels. Radios them selves are on the floor between the second and third row seats with the separate RV battery used only for the ham gear. However the radios could go under passenger seat too, or bottom of dash attachments. Vehicle is a Trail Blazer.

That is how my TS-480HX and TMD700AG control panels are used. GPS is on a windshield suction mount.

Photo below shows the control heads setup for when I am the passenger and my wife drives. When I drive the control panels are on the drivers side of the dash top.

Avmap G6 problems

Rondall Swart
 

anyone ever had problems with Avmap 6 displaying stations? I followed everything the way it should be and my radio is following flashing the GPS icon on the radio so I know it's talking to GPS, the TM-D700 is even tracking me perfect with the Avmap just isn't showing stations on the Avmap.

Hello Charlie,


 

I intend to have the radio in the trunk of my care solely for APRS tied in to a PI. Question is, can the radio operate without the faceplate? I know i can turn it on and off via the serial port, but i was just curious as there is no reason to have the faceplate in the trunk.


Are you using the build-in D700 TNC?  If so, that TNC is in the "faceplate" or "head".  As such, things won't work for packet.

I have no need for the plate up front because i already have 2 radios up there. Just trying to use what i have and not spend money LOL.

The  clip on the RJ45 jack on my microphone snapped off. I attempted to replace to RJ45 twice but when I plug the mic in to the radio it goes in to transmit mode.  I matched the pin outs carefully and all looks fine.  Any suggestions for what I might be doing wrong?

Most disturbing - assuming it is an 8 pin RJ-45 and that you did an exact copy, check the radio port VERY closely for any bent pins or objects that may be shorting when the replacement RJ-45 connector is inserted,
A replacement microphone, while pricey, may be your only alternative.

Re: D710 and automatic beaconing of APRS

Patrick, 

Sorry and yes you are right.  That's a mistake.  I should wait and emailed on it after getting home.  

I will also try they group but your input sounds like it's right there.

Ok Steve KK0SJP, you have proven your GPS updates the TM-D700A and sends the packets with push to talk as a squelch tail, it seems.
Following is from my memory:

Assuming you have two sides displayed:
To enable APRS auto beacon, shift PTT control from the APRS frequency side (I use side A, on the left) to the voice use side (side B, on the right) by pressing the control switch of the right hand volume/squelch control one time. The frequency display goes to a smaller font on the left, and your voice frequency display font enlarges. Your PTT will now work on the right hand side only.

Next, go to the APRS soft key menu by pressing the F soft key  (Function Switch) which has 3 separate menu views.
On the APRS view, press the soft key under BCON toggle on and off. Ensure BCON is displayed in the top row of the radio display to ensure it is on. Now  If the squelch is set properly on the A side (APRS frequency, your radio should now beacon immediately. If not, toggle BCON on or off a couple of times.

Remember that the APRS auto beacon transmits at the rate you have set up in the main APRS menu. Every two or three minutes is plenty enough, depending on your local traffic. 

Hope this works for you!
