Subject: [TMD700A] using exported data in programming software


Does anyone know if it's possible to use an external file (i.e. a
comma-separated file from TravelPlus) to load frequencies into
the MCP software for the D700? It does not seem to support this
feature (even though the software for my little Yaesu VX-5 does -
go figure), but if I have overlooked this feature, someone please
let me know. Thanks.

External TNC

fswil@...
 

I want to thank every one for the replys to my previous question.

I am running my TM-D700 in my shack along side my Macintosh.
Packet software for Mac is limited and that that does exist usually
calls for a Kantronics TNC. If I get one of these TNCs and
connect it to my 700 does the internal TNC built into the TM-D700
disengage? How transparently does an external TNC work this
rig?
Thanks

If you do not care about having the maps and waypoint display then
probably any GPS will do. You probably want to limit yourself to
models which have adapters to run from your car battery. Constantly
replacing dry cells would eventually be an expensive aggravation.

I use the eTrex with great success. My dad just got the eTrex Legend.
With setting the D700A to send waypoints (9 digit NMEA), you have a
compact, rugged, mapping GPS. Go with what your wallet can handle :-)

I was using an inexpensive Garmin 12 but changed to a Tripmate after I
figured out how to mod it. Either one works nicely and you can get the
tripmate for about $50 refurbed from delorme.

Re: TMD700 Packet/APRS Setup

tailfeathers@...
 

Get on the web and do a search for Winpack. It is a shareware packet program. Install it and go through the setup of your comports, baud rate, put your call in the mycall slot. Read your tmd700 manual on how to enter packet mode and it should sign on to the computer and away you go. You will find packet stations on 145.010, 030, 050, 070, and a few others. Look in a repeater directory.

D700 Keyboard Interface now available.

John Hansen <john@...>
 

Hi Folks:

I now have a firm commitment to have more PC boards early next week for the Kenwood D700 Keyboard interface. As a result, I've posted a web page that will take orders for these units. I'm extremely sorry for the delay and any inconvenience it may have caused. As you may recall, this interface allows you to connect any old PC (PS/2) compatible keyboard to your D700 to enter text.

Other salient features of the keybaord interface include:

4 31 character non-volatile message memories
Replicates the Mic up/down buttons on the keyboard cursor keys.
Automatic power down after about 3 minutes of inactivity.
Can be powered by a 9 volt batter or external 8-14 volt supply.
Is designed to fit the PC mounting holes in a standard Pac Tec box available from RS or mouser (not included in the kit).
Users a standard CAT-5 patch cable (not included).
The keyboard and the mic can be simultaneously connected.

The kit price is $40 US, $43 for foreign orders ($40 for 3 or more ordered at once).

Note that this works with the D700, not the D7 handheld.

More information (including Paypal order links) can be found at: http://john.hansen.net/Kenkey.htm

Once again, I'm sorry I didn't have more of these available a couple of week ago.

73, John W2FS


DX Cluster

2e0avf@...
 

Hello

Can the TM-D700 monitor the DX cluster showing the stations on the
screen allowing you to see the details without using a computer.
What information do you actually get on the screen if it is possible,
I.E Callsign, time, frequecy ect.....

Re: TMD700 Packet/APRS Setup

ik7565@...
 

For starters, you checked into the right group! Lots of friendly folks
here to get you pointed in the right direction. Don't worry - I knew
nothing about packet either when I got my rig last fall. Might want to
pick up a copy of WA1LOU's book,
http://www.arrl.org/catalog/index.php3?category=VHF%2FUHF%2FMicrowave .
Is your rig going in the car or is it fixed or something else? You need
to put your callsign into a menu item and there are a variety of SSIDs
to choose from. I'd recommend W5FSW-9 if it's going in the car. Other
choices in Stan's book. If you feed it with a GPS like a Garmin III+ or
something with NMEA output your position will be transmitted at whatever
rate you choose and will post to http://www.findu.com - very cool. I
leave VFO-A on 144.39 all the time and use VFO-B for all my voice comm.
Make VFO-A your "Data" band and VFO-B your "PTT" band. At the selected
interval the rig will automagically switch to VFO-A, transmit your
packet and switch back. But it will politely wait if you're talking on
VFO-B! You can send short messages to other hams using the DTMF keypad
- see findu.com for examples. Take it a chunk at a time - it's
tremendous fun!

Re: TMD700 Packet/APRS Setup

Pete AE5PL
 

APRS is on 144.39. www.tapr.org is a good resource for all things
digital. For APRS, program in your call, put a path of RELAY,WIDE3-3,
load your position, pick your icon, and turn on beaconing (30 minutes
fixed, 3-5 minutes mobile). Oh yea, make sure you are on 144.39. Also,
check out www.aprs.net and the SIGs on www.tapr.org for more info on
APRS.

Hope this helps.
