Re: Digest Number 232

Bob,

Any tnc inititalization file is going to be closely tied to the software you
are using. There is no "generic" initialization that will work with every
piece of software you use, whether it be a terminal program (although those
would be fairly similar), or a full blown aprs program.

The initthd7tnc file I have is for APRS+SA....I have no idea what it might
do (or totally screw up) for you, so I'm not sending it, unless you are
using it with APRS+SA. (In which case you should have it already, as it
comes with aprs+sa.

I only caught the fragment of your comments...not the thread, but when I saw
that filename/extension it caught my eye. Make sure you're using the right
file for the right purpose or you could really get confused. (I know, I've
been there <grin>). Good luck. 73

Re: Garmin GPS3+ verses Etrex Vista

philip yanov <phil@...>
 

I don't know if the Vista has two way NMEA, but I doubt it. You can
probably check this out on the Garmin website. I would download the manual
and read it. The patch antenna in the Vista will be significantly less
sensitive than the antenna for the GPS III+. I have a GPS III+ and etrex
and my etrex has a far more difficult time locking in on satellites in
difficult situations. (e.g. around tall buildings, in an airplane, even in
a vehicle.) For use with a mobile D700, I would recommend the versatility
of the III+ over the etrex line.

I'm planning on purchasing a new Garmin Etrex Vista and I'm wondering
if this should show waypoints like the III+. The Vista is a new unit
that has mapping, 24MB, etc. I understand that the Street Pilot does
not accept waypoints from the TMD700 but the III+ does.

Hopefully someone might have an opinion on whether this will work.
TIA.

Well, I tried this and am still having trouble. How do I send my beacons with

Re: aprs w/laptop

Chuck Beams <chuckbeams@...>
 

You need to set the tnc on the 700 into "packet" mode...not "aprs".  Use the INITTHD7.TNC file for TNC configuration.  Put
your Port 1, on the Main tab of Setup into "MODE7" which is the Kenwood TH-D7/TM-D700 mode to get GPS data from the Radio into APRS+SA.

You may have situations that you would like to program for as well.
I really like the feature. I jump in the truck in the morning and
press PM1, my radio is now set for my morning drive. APRS is set and
my favorite repeater is on Radio-B. When I arrive, I press PM2, the
radio now beacons less frequently and will auto-reply to any incoming
messages that I am away. Also, I change my icon from the truck to
the Kenwood icon when I am parked. That lets others on APRS know
that I am parked. When I get back in in the evening, I press PM1,
and I am back to moving again.

Richard,

I notice that someone has answered your question abt the tones.

Regarding the PM memories, I find these extremely useful and have
now set up all 5 for variou different uses. eg different satellite
settings, packet/aprs (different speeds/tones/ narrow, wide etc)

They will almost store any variety of settings.
The book does explain how to do this - basically you set the radio to
how you want it and then press f and P.IN then either 1,2,3,4,5

Hope you find this helpful.

Storing a PM Channel:

1. Set up the transciever as desired. You must be in receive mode, not
scanning, and have microphone control off.

2. Press [F], [P.IN]

3. Press the desired PM memory button [1-5]. The current contents of the
PM
memory are overwritten.

The following is stored in a PM memory:

VFO/MR/Packet/APRS Mode (both bands)
Memory channel (both bands)
Offset
Reverse setting
Tone setting and frequency
CTCSS setting and frequency
DCS setting and code
Upper/lower Frequency Limit
Frequency step size
FM or AM mode
Automatic Simplex Check
Transmit and control band
Transmit power
Auto Band Change
Display Dimmer
Many of the Menu 1 settings
Most of the Menu 2, 3, and 4 settings

Also, how do you program the other personalities (1-5) in the radio?

haven't played with PM myself since I really don't need them.

Re: Digest Number 227

hasan schiers <schiers@...>
 

I use a palm hot synch cable...with a radio shack db9 null modem adapter
(and I cut off the pins on the db9 null modem adapter that Mike warns will
cause excessive power drain on the Palm) See his web site.

The easiest plug and play solution is what I just described. True "modem"
cables are very hard to find. The hot synch cables are everywhere...you just
have to add a null modem adapter and make sure you cut off the unnecessary
pins to prevent battery drain. The reason you have to do this is because
some, if not most, null modem connectors have internal connections that are
shorted to each other for dtr et al...if you don't prevent those "shorts"
from seeing the Palm, it causes extra current drain that runs the batteries
down much faster than normal. It doesn't hurt or damage the palm....but it's
silly to wreck the battery life for no reason. I just got out my mini
diagonal cutters and nipped off the pins on the male side of the db9. I
think it worked. If you make your own null modem adapter, you can be sure to
do it right. I was in a hurry. 73

Chapter 8, p 42-45 of the book is the section on Programmable
Memories. I use them all of the time. I turn off the auto-store
function and then program them for my different situations.

PM# - Comment - Settings
----------------------------------
PM1 - Moving - Truck Icon, 3 min beacon, No Auto Reply, Status Text:
Listening (frequency)
PM2 - Stopped - Kenwood Icon, 10 Minute Beacon, Auto Reply - Away
from Vehicle. Status Text: www.philyanov.com, infrequent sending of
status
PM3 - Special Moving, Status: Skywarn, TNC DCD both channels.
PM4 - Special Event - Digipeater On, etc.
PM5 - Satellite - Split Transmit and Receive


You may have situations that you would like to program for as well.
I really like the feature. I jump in the truck in the morning and
press PM1, my radio is now set for my morning drive. APRS is set and
my favorite repeater is on Radio-B. When I arrive, I press PM2, the
radio now beacons less frequently and will auto-reply to any incoming
messages that I am away. Also, I change my icon from the truck to
the Kenwood icon when I am parked. That lets others on APRS know
that I am parked. When I get back in in the evening, I press PM1,
and I am back to moving again.

Richard,

I notice that someone has answered your question abt the tones.

Regarding the PM memories, I find these extremely useful and have
now set up all 5 for variou different uses. eg different satellite
settings, packet/aprs (different speeds/tones/ narrow, wide etc)

They will almost store any variety of settings.
The book does explain how to do this - basically you set the radio to
how you want it and then press f and P.IN then either 1,2,3,4,5

Hope you find this helpful.

73's Ken.

Storing a PM Channel:

1. Set up the transciever as desired. You must be in receive mode, not
scanning, and have microphone control off.

2. Press [F], [P.IN]

3. Press the desired PM memory button [1-5]. The current contents of the
PM
memory are overwritten.

The following is stored in a PM memory:

VFO/MR/Packet/APRS Mode (both bands)
Memory channel (both bands)
Offset
Reverse setting
Tone setting and frequency
CTCSS setting and frequency
DCS setting and code
Upper/lower Frequency Limit
Frequency step size
FM or AM mode
Automatic Simplex Check
Transmit and control band
Transmit power
Auto Band Change
Display Dimmer
Many of the Menu 1 settings
Most of the Menu 2, 3, and 4 settings

Also, how do you program the other personalities (1-5) in the radio?

I see no reference to this in the book, and when I go from one to the
other, there are only the factory presets.
You know that is an excellent question, for which I have no answer. I
haven't played with PM myself since I really don't need them.

You betcha, Mike. It works very nicely on my Palm IIIc and Palm IIIx. I will
say that the built in functions of the D700a are so good, that much of the
time, I just run with the internal functions provided by its aprs mode. Mike
has written a wonderful program and has done an outstanding job of
supporting it.
