Re: USB CONVERTER ISSUES

GK
 

Tried that, it did not work. In fact, after I did that I could not get it to work again, even after restarting the computer. I have heard other people having trouble with the USB to serial adapters, but this is the first one I have had trouble with and it is driving me nuts (that's a REAL short trip)! I am going to try Link700 tomorrow to see if it will work. I know there is a way to open up comm ports in WinXP, but I cannot remember how. Sounds like that would make a good google.

Go to control panel, system, hardware device, ports, and check to see what that converter is set at.

Either reset the converter to a usable port settings or match the port to the converter,

Note: if you place the converter into another computer USB port, you will find the comm port number has changed.

I know that USB adapters like comm9+, but I could not figure out how

with it.
The "upgrade" only applies to the APRS functionality of the radio. By using the RC-D710 faceplate on the D700 (through the data jack not the faceplate jack) you gain all the updated APRS features found in the TM-D710. However, you will still need the TM-D700 faceplate in order to control the basic functions of the TM-D700 body (power, VFO, etc.)

The RF decks (bodies) for the TM-D700 and the TM-D710 are totally different. Even the wiring from the head to the body is different. The TM-D700 uses four wires but the TM-D710 has a six wire head.

If you read the links you'll see it specifically mentions The V71A and D710A for the faceplate:

Full control of TM-V71A & TM-D710A
The RC-D710 can replace the TM-V71A control panel to enable all the features of the TM-D710A. It can also be used as the control panel for the TM-D710A.

There are also these items in the document:

• Connects via optional interface kit (PG-5J) to a transceiver to enable APRS
Note: Since the RC-D710 connects to the data terminal of your transceiver, control of another transceiver is not possible. Also, please be aware that Kenwood cannot guarantee the
performance of the transceiver to which the RC-D710 is connected.
• Provides full control of Kenwood's TM-V71A & TM-D710A
• Replaces TM-V71A control panel to enable all TM-D710A features

The compatibility list is only for the TNC portion.

(No subject)

 

The RC-2000 head for the TS-2000 will work with the D700.

Mike,

Sorry for the loss. Recently on this group someone had mentioned that the D700a can be used as the remote head for the B2000 or the TS 2000. Perhaps the RC 2000 head can be used with the D700a. I don't know but it's a thought, maybe a bad one???

Hi Ken:
well, I think that at least you tried everything available before
sending it in. If it is a consolation, I just bought a Yaesu VX-8,
knowing ahead of time that there was no programming cable nor software
for it, only a maybe. So I did have to program a lot by hand and what
makes it worse, it is not backed up... But the radio had lots of
features I have long been waiting for, so I'm not sorry. After all, this
is a hobby, supposed to keep us busy, lest otherwise, we would get in
some kind of trouble...

Have a look at this guy's work and see, maybe that will help. I am not
immensely optimistic, as you did not manage to connect with
hyperterminal, but it is worth a shot.

Have you performed a reset? I know you will lose the radio's
programming, hopefully you have it backed up on your computer. Now will
that help? Another shot in the dark, but it is also worth doing before
sending it in.

Also, have you tried to program a memory slot manually? If you can't,
then definitely do a full reset.

Have you verified the port speed on the D700A? It's separate from the

Isn't the port speed on the D700A set at Menu 1-9-5 Aux Com? That is
at 9600 baud, which is the same as I have set in link700 and the
hypertrm programs.

The COM port is at COM1, verified in device manager, and it works with
other programs that are set to COM1. link700 is set for COM1 also - I
even allowed link700 to do a search for COM ports, it showed COM1 (USB
to Serial) and COM3 (internal phone modem) as the only two COM ports
available.

I had confirmed the TNC as off by cycling thru TNC APRS, TNC, and
nothing - I have tried to connect while in APRS mode as well as just
the normal APRS OFF mode.

If I set link700 to COM3 (internal phone modem) it does the download
as if it were working with no errors shown - but nothing is
downloaded. If I can to COM1 (as shown in device manager) it gives an
"can not communicate with radio" error msg.

I really sorta think I've got a bad radio - sure wish there was
someone around locally that I can compare connections with - see if my
radio communicated on their computer, and if my notebook setup would
communicate on their radio.

I've tried to communicate with hypertrm program and there is nothing
there either.

Thanks for all the suggestions and help.
