Thanks for clarifying, - Hoped maybe there was another way to port GPS data to the TM-D700 that you might have discovered in applying your excellent program APRSIS32,  Sorry..

Lynn,

Instead of "... being stoopid (sic) ...," perhaps you just "mis-remembered!"  At least, that's what I tell folks (and myself) a lot these days.


I'm sure you'll have it figured out by Golden Packet time!

Re: TM-D10GA xmit on C H-A while Scan CH-B stops Scan

No worries.

I'm gonna try your set-up and see what happens.

Re: TM-D10GA xmit on C H-A while Scan CH-B stops Scan

KD7YZ Bob
 

Hi Joey'
It's taken me a bit to get time to check your suggestion. Sorry.

However, "Carrier" helps ... IF

I make the single frequency APRS 144.390 on the Internal Data Band =B

the External Data Band = A

Then listen and remain on the (Left) Channel-A

and scan on the (Right) Channel-B

This mixture I do not want to use.

I am not sure what the significance of "Internal Data Band" is ... Where does that data go then?

I AM, however certain that the EXTERNAL is the one being used by my SignaLink-USB. When a TNC program wishes to send a packet, to , say, ISS, the D701GA will be keyed on the CH-B .... which is 'supposed' to be permanently monitoring the APRS frequency 144.390 .

Can't have the External key that which is scanning ...

Anyway, I got into this configuration because I put 145.825 "sometimes" on that which is part of the SignaLInk-USB world. Then when I hear ISS, I can have the UISS program key the rig, on the uplink/downlink frequency. This has worked nicely. I just take scanning off .. if I WAS even scanning. I turn to 145.825 memory location on the "B" side ... which is External Data Band too ....APRS on the CH-A-Internal data side keeps on relaying the occasional DigiPeat packets.

My issue began when I wanted to keep scanning while I was doing something on the computer. Every time a Digipeat went, the CH-B side stopped. I was continually making it scan again.

It, however, appears I am relegated to sticking with that problem. Unless I discover what the significance of where the "Internal Data Band" has to be. And what it does in the scheme of things

Thanks for the help.

Re: TM-D10GA xmit on C H-A while Scan CH-B stops Scan

Joseph Shynn
 

Have you checked your resume scanning settings?
My B-side (right) will hold its scanning for the duration the A-side (left) transmits it’s APRS packet. Then resumes scanning. My resume setting is “resume after carrier” not a preset amount of time.
Scanning will stop indefinitely with any key push.
I’m using a D710A. Not a D710G.
Hope this helps.

Re: TM-D10GA xmit on C H-A while Scan CH-B stops Scan

KD7YZ Bob
 

Hello David

So, I tried letting CH-B (right-hand as u said) scan.
Then I made the D710 "BCON" (obviously by pushing that button on the face).

Scanning stopped completely.

Next, with CH-B scanning, I had APRSIS32 emit its beacon.

Same result. CH-B stopped scanning.

I did try making CH-A scan while CH-B watched 144.390.
CH-A Stopped momentarily when CH-B digipeated somebody. Then CH-A resumed scanning.
beaconing from either APRSIS32 or D710, in this "reversed" config appears to fix the problem

Though I haven't learned anything.
Presently, I have External-Data assigned to CH-B.

Then there is the position/Channel (A or B) of the Darkened "PTT" indicator. Presently it is on CH-A where the scanning is taking place.

Re: TM-D10GA xmit on C H-A while Scan CH-B stops Scan

Interesting... I have something similar but not exactly what you have:

   On VFO-A (the left vfo), I have the TNC in KISS mode

   On VFO-B (the right vfo), I have the VFO in memory mode

If I put VFO-B into scan mode, the decimal point in the frequency number blinks and it scans around.  While I do that, I try sending some UI packets from my packet computer and things keep scanning as expected.  If you disable digipeating on the D710's TNC, things work as you expect?  Maybe try swapping VFOs like what I have and see if it changes anything?

Somewhere in the setup I may have missed the answer. However, it is not obvious to me.

At the moment, I am scanning a handful of both 2m as well as 440 repeaters. Since I am in a fairly remote or unfriendly "Path" location, I was wondering if I could copy anyone on 440 or any conversations about covid on 2m.

CH-A is on 144.390 and digipeat's a few times.

CH-B is supposed to be scanning.

Every single time CH-A digipeats, CH-B stops and remains stopped.

I have CH-B set to stop on activity for 8 seconds.

Thanks any help

Dennis,

It appears I have the proper settings.  If I send an outgoing and someone replies I don't see the reply on my TMD710.  An example being I sent a message to WLNK-1 and I don't see the reply for Winlink via APRS.  If I go to aprs.fi I see the reply message sent back to me.

It's always nice to get a new radio but aggravating to learn new things.  I'll keep trying to figure it out

I have an old friend that lives in El Cajon (Charles Cushman)

Re: GPS forD-700

Thank You Lynn very much.
Looks like the GlobalSat BR-355 serial GPS best bang for the Buck.
Don't need anything fancy, it just needs to talk to the radio.
Most likely more sensitive than the old GPS-35 with faster acquire time,
and even less power consumption, and much smaller.
I did order it and a cheap voltage converter to make it work.
All Total about $50, about half of what I was expecting.
That will get my APRS working again. Currently have my location locked on my home address.
Thanks
