Full Reset on D710GA ?

KD7YZ Bob
 

wits end. I haven't decoded any APRS/Packet via the rig for a week. I can see the trace of a strong known Digi-Peater 20 miles away ... by using a SDR dongle and looking at the waterfall trace via SDR-Console.

Yet the "List" button on the D710 hasn't shown any stations in a week. Sometimes there are twenty or thirty depending on conditions.
APRS12 shows on CH-A. "D" shows to the upper-right of "144.390" on the CH-A portion of the D710GA display.

The same antenna and via the RTL dongle, decoded numerous Packets on 145.825 off sundry passing satellites last night.

I haven't done a settings reset because all I can find in a kenwood manual about "reset" only refers to a VFO Reset.

But I HAVE loaded other, previously working Stored Settings via the Programmer-App as well as via the MCP-6A app ... didn't matter. Still no decoded stuff.
Anyone reading questions here able to steer me correctly to answer?

What Are "Packet Filter Types" on the APRS1 Settings page?

KD7YZ Bob
 

While using APRSIS32 with my D710GA, I was noticing I wasn't seeing any APRS decodes coming out of the 710.
I had CH1 on 144.390. I had CH2 on 145.825 and that CH output being read by AGWPE/UISS .. I decoded the ISS this morning on CHb 145.825 .

Nothing showed up in APRSIS32 from CH-A nor CH-B .

If you look at the jpeg I sent and se3e on the settings menu ... there is Packet Filter Type(s) ... I tried to find whether one needs to SET the box or leave it clear.

You know, I mean, I WANT to see DIGI, OBJECT, or I Don't ??

Thanks.

Hi Leo,

yes, I use the free program MCP-2A from Kenwood:
EDIT
MENU
APRS/NAVITRA
PAGE 2
CHANNEL IN USE (e.g.1)
(under channel 1 edit):
NAME (your callsign)
LATITUDE
LONGITUDE
GS (your locator e.g. JN33pn)

close
save
upload into the transceiver

If you have any concerns, give me an email (see qrz.com)

And, wow, I already got a response!  He said he would pass it on.  Maybe if lots of us write something will happen.  If Kenwood isn't interested, perhaps they would open source the TNC code...


Re: FX.25?

Mike KQ9P
 

That's my gut instinct, as well, but I was hoping someone would have inside information to the contrary.  It's worth a try, so I sent the attached email to Kenwood amateur radio support just now.

Hello Mike,

I think we have a one in a million chance of seeing Kenwood add new protocol support like AX.25 v2.2 and FX.25 support.   Btw.. in addition to Direwolf supporting both of these new technologies, UZ7HO's soundmodem does too.  Both also support additional modes like 2400bps, 3600bps, and 4800bps which are dramatically more robust than the G3RUH 9600bps mode.  They also support modes faster than 9600bps but they generally are using the same FSK technology as found in the 9600bps mode.

How do I override internal GPS position with fixed coordinates in TM-D710G

Leo Bodnar
 

Is there a way of overriding APRS beacon lat/lon coordinates with specified, rather than dynamic ones from internal GPS?
Alternatively, is there a way of disabling internal GPS altogether?
Thanks

I am using a Garmin GPS-15HV.  It does provide the strings for showing individual satellite position.   I used the same unit with an iCom 5100 and it would show the satellite positions. I guess Kenwood decided to ignore those strings.  I also notice they don't send the incoming strings out on P.MON screen (as it was done on the 700).  It only shoes the proprietary Kenwood position string.  I would have though Kenwood would have treated the external GPS the same as the internal, but I guess not.

The satellite info is contained in different coded strings than the position information from a GPS.   
The Kenwood would have to decode that information (and the external GPS would have to provide it).
I know that the GPS12C does provide it as well as a couple of the other USB GPS units i have (GlobalSat BU-353 and BU353S4).

One way to find out is to hook your external GPS up to a computer on a serial port and see if you get any strings that start with GSA or GSV

Those are the ones that drive those "satellite status displays" that a lot of GPS units have

I was a little surprised, however, when you said originally that you needed the external unit. My internal one is notably sensitive even when deep inside the house, and initial setup is fast, even when the radio has been switched off for a couple of weeks.

Your supply will be within spec, the radio will take up to 15.8 volts, check the manual page 90:

I'm looking at installing the D710 in my Jeep as my mobile setup. I know 12V is standard... It looks like it comes with a set up to connect directly to the battery. My concearn is that the volts on my jeep run high, especially in the cold winter. In winter month it pretty common that the voltage runs between 14.5-14.8V when the vehicle is running. in the summer it will usually be between 14-14.5V. Will this do any damage to the radio if it's connected directly to the battery?


Re: 710G External GPS

Jeff
 

I think this is correct. For the 710G to display satellite info, the external GPS unit would have to provide that info. I don't think that the protocol(s) used in this configuration from the external GPS unit carry that information.

The radio receives position from the external GPS but I believe the Satellite info screen only works for the internal GPS

Reading your posting again, Joe, you may have already tried Menu 602 as data is obviously getting through, but that's the only reference I can see in the manual.
