TMD710A memory question

Anon Anon <lecontejoe@...>
 

I'm looking at jumping several generations ahead in technology and replacing my old faithful Yaseu FT7900 dual-band FM transceiver with the TMD710A.

I assume the 710A has the capability of storing memories in what Yaesu calls "banks"; don't know the Kenwood term.  In My FT7900, i have one bank for local repeaters, another that includes all 2-mtr repeater freqs, another for local public service, etc..

I'd like to set up the 710A -- assuming I buy one -- with the following memory  arrangement.

--  One memory bank that is solely APRS.  When I use this memory, the rig will switch to APRS, beacon my location, including a message that I am listening on 146.52.  If I do this, how do I listen on 146.52 while the rig is beaconing on 144.39?

--  One memory bank that is solely my local repeater freqs, 2-mtr and 430.

-- One memory bank with every 2-mtr repeater freq, and, another bank with every 430 repeater freq

-- One bank with my local public service freqs -- 1554 - 159 Mhz.  I'm on the local volunteer fire department and rescue squad and need to scan these freqs, even though I carry a Motorola handheld for public service communications.

On the old FT7900, I select Memory Bank 1 and all I hear is local repeaters; Memory Bank 4 is only local public service, etc. .   Can I do the same with the TMD710A?

Thanks

I figured I was missing something! Thanks.

Now that I have separate MCP-6 files, is there a way to "combine" them or do I need to manually configure each set-up and store via PM?

LOL what Mike said….

I have 4 PM’s set up in my 700 - 2 for APRS around town (one for day mode at full screen brightness and one for night mode with a dimmed screen brightness) nd 2 for APRS when I travel (same modes). 

Program what frequencies you need and then configure the radio for use with Winlink and save it to a PM. Then turn off the PM and configure for APRS and see to the next PM. Make sure that is off and set it up for your next configuration and save to a PM.

That way when you need Winlink, turn that PM on and the radio configures itself. Need APRS? Turn on that PM and the radio configures it self. 

It doesn’t;t change the channel programming (that can be done front panel or via the software), but that is why you would want to store all the frequencies you might need.

My TH-D74a has an onboard miniSD card to make this method easy but not the TM-D710G.

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...)

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?

I will only see the last of three numerals, blink, and the scan goes through only that MHz range ... I am interested in a L0 through U0, in the Aircraft band L0=118.00 and U0=121.400

I see the "1" then scan thru 121.0 to 121.975'ish then repeat.

any help?
