The Pharos unit is very small, cheap, and works well with the D700. I know,
I've got one and it's excellent.

To my knowledge, the Earthmate doesn’t have and option for standard NMEA output, which the D700 requires.  I know the Tripmate will work though….

Re: Two problems with wireless/ TNC Resets

DL2RUM <dl2rum@...>
 

I have the same problem. I've found out, that this will happen, when I 've
tuned to a digipeater and there is binary traffic on it.
When somebody is up- or downloading binary datas in the chanel no monitor or
dx - announcements catching is possible, due to the steady resets.
I have informed Kenwood Germany, but no response yet. (4 weeks)

Secondly, and this can happen whether I'm using UHF or not. The radio just
drops out of TNC mode, the TNC and BCON indicators vanish and the frequency
numerals change to being large as they do when the TNC is turned off. It
will stay like this for a few seconds and then it drops back into "Opening
TNC" mode, and is back to normal.

Has anyone else noticed anything like either of these, or got any ideas?

Thanks.

Keith, don't know how long you have had yours or where you got it, but I had
noisy tx audio and I called HRO (where I got it) and they sent me a new unit. So
far this one has performed as advertised. Still don't like the amber display. I
would strongly recommend that you try for a replacement. I have worked
electronics for about 45 years and seems like when you get a new rig that give
strange problems right away they remain dogs as long as they last Good lock
with it.

But I haven't seen the 2nd problem.

Re: DISPLAY

Samuel Barker <srbarker@...>
 

I think the big deal in the recent past was with the "cool blue" display
they put on the TM-V7. I know I had some problems with that one.

I have my control head mounted on the ceiling of my pickup, just above the
mirror mount (Toyota T-100) I do have problems reading the display from the
drivers seat, but it is due to the extreme angle that I'm viewing from.
It's really reflection from the plastic on the front panel that from the
display itself. When I've had it mounted in a more direct "line of sight"
position it's been great, except for the most direct sunlight, but even then
it's readable.

I've never had a problem with my D700 display and it sits

Re: 800MHz. Receive coverage

Chris Rose <kb8uih@...>
 

Receiving trunked groups with a scanner or other receiver not built for this
purpose is a problem at best. The noise of the trunking command
frequency(data channel) of the talk group you are listening to is annoying
to say the least. Without a scanner that removes this problem(the data is
interpreted by the scanner to allow proper coverage of the group) you can't
hear both sides of a conversation at all times. You might hear the dispatch
of a fire unit and the arrival of a police car. You miss the dispatch of
the police unit and the arrival of the fire unit. It is very hit and miss.
You hear the garbage trucks and local building inspectors and miss the
police and fire. I have used a trunk tracking scanner for a few years now
and won't advise anyone to use anything else for the purpose. Too hit and
miss and annoying the other way.
Thanks and good luck,
Chris

Subject: [TMD700A] 800MHz. Receive coverage


Hello,
I will be purchasing a 700a soon. Scanning 800Mhz. trunked frequencies is
one of the things I would like to do.

The Kenwood specs. and brochures mention that cellular + frequencies are
excluded. It's the PLUS part that worries me.

My last Kenwood stopped coverage at 865Mhz. which renders it useless for
covering most public service trunked frequencies (866 - 868Mhz. area).

Can anyone tell me what the gaps are at 800? Has anyone been able to
receive 1296Mhz. repeaters?


Thanks in advance for your help.

Do most folks find that they need to add RF chokes to the extension cable (I notice that this is included in the overpriced extension cable kit from Kenwood)? I'm contemplating about a 5 foot extension.

Speaking of TM-D700A microphones, I went to extend mine using an RJ-45
category
5 network cable and a female to female RJ-45 coupler.
Although the connector pins ohm out as being one to one, the cable doesn't
work.
The cable is a pre-made network cable, 12 feet long, with RJ-45 connectors
at
each end. The cable, and coupler, using an ohmeter have pin 1 connected to
pin
1 on the other end. No pins interconnect.
It seems that this should work to extend the microphone, yet when it is
connected the receive audio is muted and the radio draws 8 amps current.
Any suggestions?

I made just such a cable and it worked fine. In fact I have 2 of them, one
approx. 6 ft and another approx. 12 ft. Check your coupler.
