Re: Use with a Macintosh

Ron Cluster <rcluster@...>
 

Well, I can think of several reasons to stay with the Mac platform.
Stability, ease of use, more intuitive OS, better hardware, just to name a
few. And if we're talking about OS-10, true multitasking, speed comes into
play in a big way and the stability is now unmatched except on a UNIX
machine (which is what OS-10 really is). Plus, and this is the biggest
reason, you can tell Microshaft to go jump in a lake.

NEWS FLASH!!!!
Mac have serial ports!!! Apple just calls them by what most users hook up to
them, modems. The modem port uses standard RS-232 protocol, always has. Some
new Macs don't have serial ports anymore, so you have to get a USB to serial
adapter. If your Mac has a modem port, get a standard off the shelf modem
cable and hook it up to your TNC instead of your modem. You're up and
running. Can't get any easier than that!!

Re: Use with a Macintosh

Use the serial port on the Mac. All the older Macs have one. If it's a newer
Mac and doesn't have one, you can try a USB to serial adapter but I have no
experience with those. I have heard that they work "most of the time". Mac
pinouts are available at:

Re: GPS Module

Darrek Kay <dkay@...>
 

I'm using a Garmin GPS-16 HVS. I built a little interface box that takes
the RJ-45 from the GPS, has a 1/8" stereo plug for serial, a standard power
connector and a switch that turns the unit on and off. I've mounted the
unit atop my roof with the optional mag-mount and used a gloss paint pen to
cover up the Garmin name. When I need to adjust the settings I can take a
DB9 to 1/8" stereo adapter cable I made and connect any computer in the car
(since the unit is siliconed to the roof where the wire goes through). It
did set me back $160 or so, but it works great.

Re: GPS module?

William C Biggs, MD
 

Ralph,

Many of us use a GPS with no display.

I am using the Garmin GPS-35. All the electronics, antenna, etc are in a module about 1/2 the size of a mouse.

I leave mine sitting on the rear window shelf , and it has a long cable that you wire to connect to power and the D700. Acquisition time is typically in seconds. Mine is a few years old, thus I can't say if they are still available or have a newer version.

Cheers,
Reddy Biggs KC5JIF

Hi John,

I am currently using a Garmin GPS-V with my D700. It has a moving map and is pretty
nice, although the screen is really small. My reading glasses are a must!

Since I don't like taking the GPS-V in and out of the car all the time (thief reasons),
I was just looking for a small black box gps engine I could leave in plain site, and
just pull out the GPS-V if and when needed.

thanks for the info!

Re: GPS module option in Japanese D700

I see that JA1RBY is using the optional module (TGP-10). His set-up is as follows:

RIG:TM-D700S
GPS:TGP-10
ANT:SG-M805M

I found a couple of references on the following pages:

http://homepage2.nifty.com/JS1JVR/navi/ojama/
http://www.cqcqde.com/shopping/mobile/tm-d700.htm
http://www.rocket-co.co.jp/08/301options.htm

I was not able to find a picture or spec's on the unit it self. The cost is (suggested retail) a little high.

GPS module?

Ralph Quallich <kf4hr@...>
 

Anyone know of a company that sells a small inexpensive 12-channel gps
module (without display) that I can use with the TMD-700? Ideally, I'd
like it to acquire sats as soon as 12vdc is applied. Something I can
stick to the window and forget about.

By the way, thanks to all that helped with my Garmin GPS-V -> D700
problem. It's working fine now. Found I had a defective cable.

One way I've seen this happen is if one PM showed
Messages and then you changed to another PM and
Deleted the messages from there. When you then
Recalled the previous PM it still showed that you
Had messages as the memory setting wasn't updated
As the messages were deleted.
Again using the delete method even with no stored
Messages fixes it.

The squelch control has no effect until you repower the radio. I must try

Makes sense. I don't know if you've heard it, but I was playing with the
volume control and noticed that while the volume knob turns smoothly, the
volume itself actually jumps up or down in discrete steps. It makes sense
that the control knobs are actually sending volume change commands back to
the main radio body, and if there's a firmware bug it could wind up
ignoring the volume or squelch commands.

That is in fact the case. If you have a TS-2000 and the control software,
you may have noticed the same thing. No matter where the volume or
squelch are set on the "hard" knobs, you can adjust them with "soft" knobs
on the computer. If you move the "hard" knob on the radio, the
"soft" knob will immediately jump to the same position as the
"hard" knob. So, they are position encoders and not pots as one would
think. I think that this is a wise decision on the part of Kenwood. Pots
wear out and develope "scratchy" responses. Position encoders on the
otherhand, don't tend to have this problem.

Re: LINK 700

haven't used it in a while, but I believe you are not suppose to have
it either Packet nor APRS mode.

I recently downloaded the program.
Is the radio "not" suppose to be in the packet mode,
but in TNC/APRS mode.
Can't get communication between the PC and radio.

Followed the quick start method in the help file...

thanks,
