Another method is to use a serial terminal on the db9 port.

When in aprs mode on the d700, type on your terminal

AMSG 00,K0STL-1,HELLO FROM D700

check this link for all the commands

It goes in the mic line, so you plug the mic into one side of the
board and
a cable from the board to the radio in the other. You could use
the DB-9
connector for message entry, but if you do that, you won't have
the
letters actually display on the screen as you type. That seemed
important
to me (otherwise you really need to provide a second screen) so I
used the
mic connector. You will be able to perform the control functions
necessary
to send messages using the function keys on the PC keyboard so that
you
won't actually have to touch the panel or the microphone to send
messages. The bad news is that a typical keyboard draws more
current than
can be provided by the 8 volts available on the mic line, so the
unit will
have to be powered separately. :(

I use a really small PC keyboard at home (one by Cherry, which I
love). I
don't think you could make one any smaller that would still permit
touch
typing. BG micro was blowing them out for $10 and I bought a
couple...
wish I'd bought 50 of them. Dauphin has some cheap small keyboards
that
have also been showing up at hamfest for $10-15. I wanted to make
this
generic, so you could plug in any PC keyboard that you happened to
have. Where else can you buy a "keypad" that has 100+ keys on it
for under
$10?

You can use the microphone keypad to enter your messages. Time-consuming
but works ... and faster than twiddling the dial.

Re: APRS Messaging

Michael Jones <kf6swi@...>
 

There is an experimental service available:

Someone can send email to aprsemail@...
Put the callsign +SSID, if any, into the subjectline (i.e. KF6SWI-7)
Then, either continue the message in the subjectline
OR
Send the message as normal email.

All messages sent in this fashion must be approved for appropriate content
by a moderator, then they are sent out. During the day, the turn around is
usually fairly quick. At other times, the wait can be quite a few hours.
Also, foreign languages are a stumbling block at times. I know English,
Spanish and Italian are covered, I'm unsure about others. So, if the content
is in Arabic, and there isn't a moderator that speaks arabic to approve the
content, the message will get rejected.

Mike

Re: Scanner on Band A and B

nblade@...
 

As far as I can tell, this can't be done. Each VFO will scan the
stored memeories. However since each VFO is confiured only for
certain Freq reception, it will only scan those memeories that it can
recieve. Since both VFOs can recieve both 2m and 70cm, both VFOs will
scan all memories in those band.

There might be a possible workaround, the radio does have a scan
group feature, which I have never used. According to the manual the
200 channels are arrange in 10 20 channel groups. If you put all the
70cm channels in one group and all the 2m channels in another, you
could use this feature to just scan those channels. This of course
wouldn't work if you need to have more than 20 channels in each group.
the info is like on page 51 of the manual.
