Hi Ken:
well, I think that at least you tried everything available before
sending it in. If it is a consolation, I just bought a Yaesu VX-8,
knowing ahead of time that there was no programming cable nor software
for it, only a maybe. So I did have to program a lot by hand and what
makes it worse, it is not backed up... But the radio had lots of
features I have long been waiting for, so I'm not sorry. After all, this
is a hobby, supposed to keep us busy, lest otherwise, we would get in
some kind of trouble...

Have a look at this guy's work and see, maybe that will help. I am not
immensely optimistic, as you did not manage to connect with
hyperterminal, but it is worth a shot.

Have you performed a reset? I know you will lose the radio's
programming, hopefully you have it backed up on your computer. Now will
that help? Another shot in the dark, but it is also worth doing before
sending it in.

Also, have you tried to program a memory slot manually? If you can't,
then definitely do a full reset.

Isn't the port speed on the D700A set at Menu 1-9-5 Aux Com? That is
at 9600 baud, which is the same as I have set in link700 and the
hypertrm programs.

The COM port is at COM1, verified in device manager, and it works with
other programs that are set to COM1. link700 is set for COM1 also - I
even allowed link700 to do a search for COM ports, it showed COM1 (USB
to Serial) and COM3 (internal phone modem) as the only two COM ports
available.

I had confirmed the TNC as off by cycling thru TNC APRS, TNC, and
nothing - I have tried to connect while in APRS mode as well as just
the normal APRS OFF mode.

If I set link700 to COM3 (internal phone modem) it does the download
as if it were working with no errors shown - but nothing is
downloaded. If I can to COM1 (as shown in device manager) it gives an
"can not communicate with radio" error msg.

I really sorta think I've got a bad radio - sure wish there was
someone around locally that I can compare connections with - see if my
radio communicated on their computer, and if my notebook setup would
communicate on their radio.

I've tried to communicate with hypertrm program and there is nothing
there either.

Thanks for all the suggestions and help.

Steve, I sorta think I have a radio problem. I checked the db-9 pins on the radio with +4.7VDC with respect to ground pin on pins 2 & 3. Pin #7 had 4.8 VDC, and pin #8 had 4.82 VDC. Why should the pin #3 have a voltage?

You did not mention if this was in TNC PKT mode or not, so I started radio in TNC PKT mode and just normal mode both and the voltages stayed the same. I would have expected to see them change depending on mode.

Thanks to all for input and suggestions.

serial port

sailingto <sailingto@...>
 

Since this is a notebook (with VISTA) there are no actual COM ports involved. COM3 is assigned to the internal modem.

When I connect a USB to serail convertor it will be assigned to COM1, COM2, or COM4 depending on which USB port I connect to and which USB to serial converter I use.

I have not checked the IRQ assigned in a while - usually don't bother with IRQ unless there seems to be a conflict getting the COM port to work.

Yes I have used both USB to serial converters with other programs and this same notebook computer - I have used them with a TNC, HRD, to a C-IV interface to control an ICOM radio, to GPS.... not had a problem with these converters.

I sorta think I have a radio problem. I checked the db-9 pins on the radio with +4.7VDC with respect to ground pin on pins 2 & 3. Pin #7 had 4.8 VDC, and pin #8 had 4.82 VDC.

Per Steve only pin 2 on his D700A had voltage at -9.2 VDC. I started radio in TNC PKT mode and just normal mode both and the voltages stayed the same.

Time to dig out the schematic to see what it looks like there. I doubt I will have knowledge to repair, but I can look at it.

Thanks to all for input and suggestions.

Re: D700A TNC???

sailingto <sailingto@...>
 

Thanks for the input Steve, Amir, and all the others. I really tend to think there is a radio problem - looks like a hard reset is the next step. I really hate to do that since I don't have my programs backed up - but I guess it doesn't matter if they are back up or not. If the hard reset fixes the problem, not a real chore at all to create a new file and download to the radio. If it does not fix the problem of communicating with the radio, I've got to program them by hand anyway.

I had not fooled with it any since last week - been involved on other projects - I just did a hard reset with the red button. Now everything is cleared out, but no joy. I have tried both USB to Serial converts with the same results. Using Link700 and the Kenwood Mcp program I get the same "no communication with serial port" that I got before. I have tried hypertrm and another terminal program and none of them can estabilish comms with the Kenwood. I have tried the D700A in TNC mode as well as normal mode. Nothing works.

Steve, since none of the other progams established comms with radio, I didn't try your spreadsheet... gotta get the computer to talk to radio before there can be any joy there.

I do think I have a bad radio - but will reserve final judgement until I can find someone local (200 mile radius?) that does computer programming with their D700A and try the radio on their computer setup. I'd also put my notebook in the saddlebag and bring it along also.

Thanks again for all the help and suggestions. On a nice weekend, I'd ride a couple hundred miles to test the radio with someone.

I read the comments and all look good.

All is correct so far:
- Yes, Menu 1-9-5 is the serial port speed.
- Straight cable.
- You can use Hyperterm. Set to
9600 8 N 1

Mine is also set for NO flow control and works.

One difficult to find issue for UDB<>Serial converters is the control lines DTR & RTS. (I have an LED snooper) If they don't operate correctly you won't know it if the external device ignores them. I haven't determined if the D700 needs these. I use a real serial port, but now have a new Vista machine, so I look forward soon to facing this issue as well.

- Yes the radio sends PS 1 on power up, but you can send a command to it and get a response. Use "AI" (no quotes) That is "A" and "I" (eye) not a one, then Enter. The radio will respond "AI 0" Use this so you don't have to keep power cycling the radio as you try things.

The manual also says to power cycle the radio when changing baud rates in Menu 1-9-5.

Then, if U have Excel, U can try my sheet. and comment on it, please.

I have a standard female to female serial cable - I've checked the wire connections from plug to plug with ohm meter showing good connection on ALL 9 pins.

Using Kenwoods D700 program and the link700 program When I tell to download from radio there is "no comunication" error. I've checked the COM port and baud rate to be sure those are the same(9600) in the program as well as the D700 radio (Menu 1-9-5 Aux Com).

I then tried hypertrm program to connect with no luck. My understanding is with the cable all connected, hypertrm opened with connection open, when the D700A is turned on, there should be a PS 1 returned from radio?

Kenwood software

 

Kenwood software works great on XP operating systems, Vista may be an issue, but you should go into the program properties folder, and change back-up to an earlier Microsoft op system like XP, ME, 98 etc.

Sometimes this will trick things into working.

There are still computers being sold with XP on them like the ACER Inspire One Notebook and it worked so good compared to my $2500.00 HP that I bought another $299.00 Inspire One.

Be careful though, some of the Inspires only have a 16 GB internal card. Wally World sell one listed at 120 GB but it turns out if you do a system check it is actually a 160 GB HD.

One of the BIG computer stores is selling the 16 GB version and the same price or higher, so buyer be where.

Re: D700A TNC???

sailingto <sailingto@...>
 

I don't remember the exact words, but the msg is "can not establish communication with radio" or pretty close to that. The exact same msg if the radio is turned off. If the port won't open, it will display msg "can not open serial port" or words to that effect.

Yep, some USB to serial coverters don't work very well - but this one has been working on most everything I have tried, from a SCS TNC, GPS, HRO, etc. The USB to serial converter has worked pretty good with everything I've tried so far.
