Re: D700A help with ribbon cable connector

Joseph LaFerla
 

HI Leo

After a very long wait looking for part numbers and parts, I have finally been able to get the connector soldered in place.  I first contacted Kenwood USA who gave me the part number and that I could get it through East Coast Transistor and Parts. I sent the radio to a local repair shop since the connector is smd and very tiny.  The repair shop guy tells me that, once the connector was soldered in, the radio immediately powered up and the tnc now works.  So it would seem that something in the bootloader goes around looking for each component and will hang until it finds everything.  Although it took much longer, especially since I live in Canada, I preferred to wait until the exact replacement part was received rather than getting one from Digikey.  I actually bought two connectors and will keep one as spare just in case.

Thanks for your help and suggestions to all who provided input.

Hello,

My son dropped his TM-D710 control head and broke off one of the right-hand knobs.  I am looking for the part number and source for the knob module.  (Also replacement knobs...)

Thanks in advance,

Thank you  73  Emory  WM3M
While "not really control", I am using APRSIS32, ONLY the development
version please, to interact with the APRS side of D7120GA I own.

I mean, unlike using DXLabSuite's 'Commander', to change mode(s) and
QRG, APRSIS32 can't do that ... and Commander can't seem to do anything
or talk to the D710. And I love thge DxLabSuite stuff.

Also, I own Packet-Engine-Pro which reads and decodes the 'External Data
Output' of the D710Ga here. That and UISS will allow work through the ISS.

But still, it isn't the 'Control' which you are asking about.

As I 'mostly' use the D710 for APRS, I am getting along, but would
prefer the control too.

Prolly, the CAT interface from the Kenwood and the dual-band ops, might
make it a nightmare for the overworked programmer of DxLabSuite ...
considering the DxLabSuite is freeware. I am a former programmer of
intercept and analysis equipment and , in a way, can sympathize with
him. The difference was, I was compensated for hours of work ,, hi hi .

Good evening Bob -
Howdy.


Presume you are referring to Sec 4 / Scan as the PDF mentioned?  Your
description suggests you are executing a "MHz scan"?

I DO have the complete, sectioned, Instruction PDF you mentioned.

So after re-looking, I noticed during a Scan that the Step-Size was
incorrectly 12.5Kc ... this, it turns out, was programmed into one of
the VFO-Screens. Even tho 25KC was in the memories table. So I changed
all the VFO-tabs to be 25Khz.

Then a form of VFO scan started.

Next I notice that I AM on the correct Band ...namely 118MHz band.

HOWEVER, a scan starts at 118 and goers as for as 129.975 then restarts
at 118.025 again.

This appears to mimic a Limit-Memories L0-U0 selection.

Since it isn't possible to link all the Limit-Memories, I can't get past
a VFO Scan of being tied to Limit-Memories.

You worked that one out?

There were, for my Locale, two or three frequencies that seemed to be a
modulated single tone that was both strong as well as constant. So I
tried to split up the limit-memories.

In any event, according to VFO-Scan, If I put myself (VFO, on anything
in the 118 Band, which ostensibly goes through 136 MHZ, that I should
scan 118 to 1`36 ....according to VFO Scan ...

right??

cuz it "ain't" doing that.

hopefully two memory-tables from my D710 will come through. A pix is
worth a thousand words ...

Re: Unable to make D710GA Group or Program Scan work

Good evening Bob - Coincidently, I just stumbled across the detailed 710 instruction manual on CD that I lost some time back. Mine is an earlier 710A but assume it works the same in Scan mode as the G model.

Presume you are referring to Sec 4 / Scan as the PDF mentioned?  Your description suggests you are executing a "MHz scan"?  Page "Scan-3 " depicts the somewhat detailed steps for a "Program Scan" using a pre-programmed pair of low to high frequencies (Lx to Ux where x is an integer from 0 to 9).  If you don't have this document, happy to send you a copy?

Re: GPS Unit for D710A Correction

 

I use one of three GPS units all interchangeable with my radios,

  1. Magellan Sport Track
  2. Garmin GPSMAP 478
  3. Garmin Rhino 130

 

Only small adjustments to radio setting is necessary to have them work with my TMD 700A(G), THD7A(G) and TM-271A, the setting? Is the baud rate!

Correction to my last reply. I listed the wrong GPS. It is the unit with the serial cable.

I just put a new GPS on my D-700 about 3 months ago.
This is the best Bang for the $.
GlobalSat BR-355 BR-355 Serial GPS Receiver.  (There is 2 versions, Make sure it is the Serial Version)
https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B000VUFGF8/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

And this is how I power it.
BINZET DC Converter Step Down Regulator 5V Regulated Power Supplies Transformer Converter (5V 3A 15W)
https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J3MHRNO/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Just cut the end off the plug, 4 wires.
5v+, Ground, GPS In, GPS Out.

Very low power consumption, I leave it powered 24/7, in my Truck.
RX is very sensitive, it has a magnet back on it and I just stuck it on the top of my radio.
Locks on the SATS quick.

So for $47.54 you can replace your GPS for a Kenwood D-700

I have NIB GPS-710 and the 24'' extension.  Never used.  Never got around to replacing my old D700.  Boxes opened when first purchased to inspect and have a look at it.   Think I paid somewhere around $129 for the GPS unit.  Can't recall what I paid for the  extension.   I'd let it go for $80.00 iffen you want it...I'll pay the shipping...US Postal money order works for me...

So Finally transferring my D710 to my new truck, and I am looking for a better solution for the GPS unit. Currently I have a hacked together Magnetic GPS unit that I threw together with a small breadboard to interface with the D710 and provide the needed 5V (small linear regulator). Would love to have one of the Green Light Labs units or something similar, but those are basically unattainable (unless someone here has one they want to part with).

Other than being a slightly better hack, are there any clean solutions readily available?

Thanks
