How do I override internal GPS position with fixed coordinates in TM-D710G


Leo Bodnar
 

Is there a way of overriding APRS beacon lat/lon coordinates with specified, rather than dynamic ones from internal GPS?
Alternatively, is there a way of disabling internal GPS altogether?
Thanks

Hi Leo,

yes, I use the free program MCP-2A from Kenwood:
EDIT
MENU
APRS/NAVITRA
PAGE 2
CHANNEL IN USE (e.g.1)
(under channel 1 edit):
NAME (your callsign)
LATITUDE
LONGITUDE
GS (your locator e.g. JN33pn)

close
save
upload into the transceiver

If you have any concerns, give me an email (see qrz.com)
