Re: Radio will reset every few times I turn it on

David Ranch
 


Hello Burt,

For your D710 issue, this could be a power problem but maybe also SWR.� I would first try lowering the RF power on the TNC side and see if running on lower power levels lets you beacon (this both covers power draw but also potentially SWR issues). If you suspect DC power, start off with the fuse check.� If that doesn't help, then check the input voltage and maybe something has degraded in the power cabling area or maybe the car's battery.� Maybe try powering the radio from an AC power supply to compare.

Are you sure the radio isn't resetting when APRS tries to beacon?  Try turning off the TNC and see if it keeps resetting.   Also open up both fuse holders, remove the fuses and squeeze the holders together a bit.  Finally, are you sure the input voltage is good enough?

Reading through this newsgroup it sounds like the battery may have gone kaput on the main board causing the radio to reset itself every few times I turn it on.

Any advice on replacement batteries? Send it in to get replaced? Get a battery and socket and solder that in? I wasn't really able to find good instructions on doing it myself.

TM-D701G Remote control from another?

Rusty O
 

Hi,

I have a 710 at home and another in my truck. I can use a TH-D72A to control either in remote mode. I can cause them to go into or out of cross band repeat mode, etc with commands from the D72. My wife uses a D72 to control the home station when I am out and about.

I can also use a D72 to control the 710 in my truck when I'm in a nearby building.

All that works fine.

What I haven't figured is how to remotely control the home 710 from the truck 710 so I can extend my range to my club repeater.

Putting the D72 into "Mobile Control" mode is simple, just hold down PTT & MR while turning it on. From there on simple one-key-presses control the remote radio. I haven't found an equivalent sequence for the 710. Getting it to accept remote commands is simple, just hold down the REV button while turning it on. What I want is the opposite.  I want the truck 710 to behave like the D72 in Mobile Control mode.

There may be a way to do this using DTMF codes, but first I'd like to find a simple method like the D72.

Anyone?
Thanks, Rusty K7RMO



Wanted D-710A control head or PC board

Joe Dietrick
 

Anyone have one for sale, reasonably priced and good condition?


Alternatively, is there a replacement PC board? Looks like most items are plug & play on it. Saw a site called PacParts which looks like they used to have them.


Dog dumped the box with the radio and a few other (heavier) items, and bashed a knob breaking the circuit board.  Yep, should have boxed it carefully.


Thanks,


Joe, KC0NOX

Re: PTT Intermittant

Randy Allen
 

I had a similar problem a few years ago with my TM731A, using the same mike (with a different connector, bought it aftermarket) as on the D700. IIRC The spring under the PTT button had sawed it's way through a cushion inside the mic. Bought replacement parts from Kenwood and no issues since then.

Can't find any of the documentation or related e-mails right now, but is something to look at if you determine the issue is with the mic.

Re: PTT Intermittant

Many years ago, I replaced the keypads in two of that style Kenwood mic for a blind ham. My memory is a bit foggy on this, but I do recall that the face keys used a carbon like product on the back of the membrane for conductivity. I believe the PTT was a small, mechanically actuated switch soldered to a simple PC board in the back of the mic, so cleaning may be effective if that board were removed for isolated cleaning. The replaced parts were inexpensive, easy to obtain & easy to install.

Re: PTT Intermittant

Spray some Deox-It electronic cleaning solution into the PTT switch or carefully disassemble it, clean the contacts, apply some Deox-It as a final step before reassembly.

The PTT switch contacts may have developed some oxidation over time, or some foreign substance got in there, or both (or maybe just worn out).

If you know someone with a TM-D700A or another Kenwood that uses the same mic, try a different mic and see if you get the same problem.

Short answer - no.  The D700 was never designed to have any firmware upgrades.

The only thing that someone might be able to build, using the Service Manual documentation, would be a replacement TNC mini-card but nobody has even hinted at that either.  So the D700 is what it is...no more, no less...

Bill,

 Thanks for the link and info. Well versed in the site as I have a TM-V7A (yes it still works!) and a TH-D72A for a few years. Used to check it frequently for updates before joining the TH-D72 yahoo group. Revisited the site to download the programming software that was used to update the memory channels on the D700A.

Eric, you can check for firmware / software versions / updates at Kenwoods web site: 
http://www.kenwood.com/i/products/info/amateur/software_download.html

No updates are listed for this radio. But it was an excellent question to ask about. It is a great radio as is.

Dont forget to explore Kenwoods SkyCommand feature that the TMD-700AG radio does support. Interface it to a Kenwood HF radio such as the TS-480HX that runs 200 watts on hf, and with the Kenwood TH-D7AG or TH-D72AG walkie talkies, you can do HF with your HT. Great for emergency support and  load of fun just to take a walk and check into a twenty meter usb net control station as a pedestrian mobile. This is NOT cross-banding .... the HT will have remote control of the hf radio with a lot of its feature. Change modes, bands, frequency etc etc all from the HT, and no computer is require. You can even turn the hf rig on and off.
