FULLDUP tnc command: How?

royldean@...
 

Trying to get full duplex TNC functionality for use with FalconSat-3.   Manual says the TNC command is "FULLDUP".


So, I connect via rs232 terminal emulator (cable connected to the control head, NOT the RF deck), and enter command "FULLDUP".


All I get in return is the following:


"?ULLDUP"


Has it actually worked?   Or is the "?" indicating that it has no clue what I asked of it?   Note that if I type in "ID" and hit enter, it comes back with "TM-D710GA" (or something similar), so I am definately connected to something.   Any suggestions?

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?

Re: Saving APRS Configurations in PM

I don't know how much difference there is between the menus for the D710A and the D710G, but in my manual the menu to set the Auto PM store is 521.  The menu number appears on the right side of the display as you move through the menus. It should be under the AUX menus.

Hope this helps

Re: TM-D700 Fan

Having had a first-hand experience with a D700A vs. a D710G at Clingmans Dome for this year's Golden Packet Annual APRS Appalachian Trail exercise, I can tell you that a TM-D710x model is far easier to program/re-program "on the fly" than the TM-700 which I have. 

All the pertinent APRS/TNC setting appear to be menu-accessible, whereas with the 700A certain TNC settings can only be addressed by connecting the rig to PC and connecting to the TNC using a terminal node program.

That is kinda of a PITA in the field, although I have done it when required.

I'm saving up for a D710x!

Hi Dave,

Re: TM-D700 Fan

 

I learned early on, to remove the sticker covering the fan bearing, if no hole, drill (carefully) a small hole where the sticker was! A drop of good lubricant, replace the sticker or make a new one, all fixed, good for another year or two!
