Re: TX for 476MHz

Aaron <ae4ko@...>
 

Hello is there anyone that can help me with information how to
modified the TM-D700a for tx on the Australia CB Band (476 MHz),I know
the green wire and resistor but that goes only to 470MHz cheers all.
de Art Down-Under
Look at the mods pages (or search), but I think it involves removing
a resistor along with the wire.

(I have not tested or seen it done, BTW).

I have noticed the same problem. I do not know a cure for it.

Has anyone else noticed that their crossbanded audio from the d700 is all
muffled? The audio at the 2m repeater you trying to work is as if you are
talking with a sock in your mouth.

I have tried both in locked band and cross band mode, and with the d700
microphone connected and disconnected, and with the mute function on and
with it off to no avail. Compared to other rigs I have heard in cross
band, this one sounds obvious you are crossbanding, whereas other rigs sound
about as clean as the original audio. Any thoughts?

It's a very nice system of interchangable mounts and adaptors for mobile
equipment of all kinds.

Their web site is www.ram-mount.com.

HRO carries them, along with a lot of the aeronautical supply companies.

R.A.M.'s website is www.ram-mount.com.

I *believe* the correct model is the RAM-B-111. (Sorry, can't find my
paperwork on it.)

Re: TM-D700 & Winaprs

Rick Giguere <rick@...>
 

I'm using it with no problem.

* Set the radio for TNC, not aprs.
* Be careful of port speed - don't change the defaults on the radio.
* I use the "Kenwood DC" selection from the TNC window without any
changes.

I've used it from both my laptop and my desktop ... used it Field Day with
the laptop for over 24 hrs and it never even burped.

Re: Looking for RAM Mount for GPS & Kenwood D700a

Rick Giguere <rick@...>
 

I used the free RAM mount that Kenwood was giving out at Dayton. I've
been very, very happy with it.

I only made one change .... instead of mounting the control head
to
the Kenwood-supplied bracket and then mounting the bracket on the RAM
mount plate, I drilled two additional holes on the plate that correspond
with the mounting screws on the control head and mounted the control head
directly to the RAM mount plate.

I intend to purchase a second RAM Mount to use for my Garmin GPS III+.

Looking for a GPS for my D700a or...help

William \ Hawk\ Bennett <nighthawk@...>
 

Hello,

I am sorry for cross-posting this question, but I would like to maximize the
possibility of getting an answer.

I have the Kenwood D700a & bought the necessary cables to attach my Magellan
Tracker to the radio (data/power cable with loose wires). I have been very
unsucessful getting the lines to match up & getting the items to "talk" to
each other.

The D700a has a DATA IN (from GPS-red), DATA OUT (to GPS-white), & GROUND
(shield).

The Magellan Tracker has a POWER (red), GROUND (black), NMEA+ (orange),
Data+ (yellow), Alarm (white)

No matter which I hook up, & configure the GPS, I can not get them to
"talk".

SO, the "real reasons" for this message:
How to get them to talk or
What inexpensive GPS will talk to the D700a sucessfully (tried & true)?


Mounting of control head

TOM BLACKWELL <radio@...>
 

Has anyone mounted the control head of a TMD700A on a goose neck?

Are there any preferences as to which goose neck to buy? Any plusses or minuses
for this kind of mounting?

Re: Rand Mcnally GPS

WO1V@...
 

Hello!

One thing I often do in these circumstances is insert a half dozen (or
whatever) diodes in series in the power input: assuming the appliance is
internally regulated, this does 2 things: bring the voltage range "more
safely" within the 16V or whatever, and reduces the heating up of the device,
by reducing the actual voltage on its input...

I also did this using the Rand McNally, although you can run the GPS
receiver on 13.8V without a problem. They have been tested to 16V without
issues. You'll need some velcro to keep the receiver from walking around
your dash or rear deck.

Re: E-Mail

Send an APRS message to EMAIL; then in the message section put the
email address, two spaces, then the email.
i.e.
To: EMAIL
Msg: whoever@... This is a test of outgoing email on APRS.

Note, this will only work if you are inrange of an IGate

You can send an email with any APRS device by sending a message to
<callsign>-IM and the message will be delivered by email. If you send a

will get there too.
