Re: Full Reset on D710GA ?

KD7YZ Bob
 

Tony,

I did the Full-Reset. Decoded no packets off ,CH-A, 144.390 overnight.

However, I had CH-B on 145.825 for Sat's and did copy RS0ISS traffic.

CH-B is the External and is read through SignaLink via AGWPE/UISS fwiw.

So where do we go from here if a Full-Reset doesn't work?

Re: D-700 as a Simple Stand-Alone Digipeater

Thanks Mark,
Good info.

The 700 info seems to be discussing mobile radios as digipeaters.   While I'm trying to set up a mobile radio as a digi, it will be used as a local permanent digi on a hilltop and we don't want to relay  the packets on to other digipeaters.  And it will not be on the APRS national Hz. but a rarely used packet Hz.   This use would be during special events or when the big one hits in So. Cal so our organization won't compete with all the hundreds of other stations.  The digi would pretty much be standing by until needed.

That was my question.
I do not know HOW to do a 'Full Reset'. And I didn't see it in the manual(s)
I figured the Full Reset out ...had to toggle Aux-999 enough to get "Full"

Did that and now hoping I get some decodes. Have not imported my previous settings yet in case they were the problem.

Hoping the thing comes up with enough moxie to decode after I make sure APRS is on; data band; baud; mycall and path; time and zone

Ok, still having problems. GPS is a Garmin 3+. GPS interface set to NEMA 4800. Radio Kenwood TM-D700. TNC on, BCON on, GPS icon on, channel 144.39 high power. TX interval 3 min, PACKET TX Auto, PACKET PATH Wide1-1,Wide2-2, Status TX Rate 1/3, Waypoint 9 digits NEMA, GPS Unit NEMA, UIDIGI Relay, Digipeater OFF, Packet Speed 9600bps, UNPROTOCOL APK101. Sometimes it will work, most times not. Connections appear to be secure. It used to work fine. What did I screw up? TIA

Good Evening Bob, if you are not already familiar with it, you might benefit from looking thru:
http://aprs.org/D7xx/d700-faq.txt   as there is a bit of discussion of setting up the 700 to Digi.

Will need to digipeat from a hill top in a remote location not within range of any APRS network digipeater.

Want to set it up to ONLY digipeat from a mobile or HT to a receiving station.  One hop like a non-linked voice repeater.

I'm familiar with the settings menu for APRS in the radio and can also access the TNC via the serial port to change any settings there.

Just what settings do I need to make this work?
Settings I've done:
In radio menu:
-Turned ON digipeat
-Set UIDigi to Wide1-1
-Packet path to Wide1-1

Then I turned on TNC to TNC-APRS

Any other recommendations?
Thanks

     Hi Bob, my D710 has the same issues every so often it will not decode any aprs packets, until I do a full reset then it is good to go, but have to reprogram settings in it or up date by computer. Let me know if you figure it out.

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.

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.

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

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)

Re: FX.25?

Mike KQ9P
 

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.

Re: FX.25?

David Ranch
 


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

Re: 710G External GPS

Joe, KO8V
 

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.
