 I have an Kenwood TM D700A, and I would like to start to use the APRS functions of my radio. I would like to see if any one has any suggestions for a GPS I need to get. I am starting from scratch on this endeavor. I have only been a ham for a short wile. So any tips or were I need to start to send my first packet would be very helpful.


Thanks Mike

Mike ARS KD8ZCM,

 

Well depends on your usage. Is it mobile? If mobile will you be using a Computer? If not a computer would you like to use a GPS that shows other APRS stations on you display(GPS)? Several questions to get some idea of where you will being going with it. I have a TM-D700A and use the Garmin Nuiv 350 with an Argent Data cable that converts the Fleet Maintenance port  to APRS data and it is bi-directional so the GPS displays local APRS stations on it.  Now if you are using a computer to do display of information, then most any puck type serial/USB GPS will work and can be ran to the computer and told to output the NEMA string out to a port to the Radio. If you do not need to see the display, then most and serial GPS that outputs the NEMA 0183 data to the radio, just to transmit your location will do. So it all depends. Sorry to make it complicated. Main thing to consider is the Kenwood really likes 4800 baud on the GPS port; although, I think it would be capable of 9600 baud though I’ve never used it.

OK thanks, my Kenwood will be cabled to my computer as a base station. Sorry I should of mentioned that prior. I do know the TX \ RX channel is 144.390. But my whole intent it to set up my weather \ Emergency station for ARES, RACES. Packet radio or APRS is one many means to commucate. So if any one can get me into this direction for my base station, that would be great.

Thanks. Mike

There are many ways to go. I have, and still use from time to time the following: in the field with HT's I use Garmin Rhino 130, in the truck I use either my Garmin GPSMAP 276 or GPSMAP 478. I also have used Magellan GPS units. It really all depends on how much you want to spend, and use the unit multipurpose (controlling radio and getting driving directions). There are some very inexpensive "no Frills" units out there.
Thing to remember is: NEMS OUTPUT for Magellan, NEMA4800 for GARMIN and the proper output language from the GPS to the radio. I know this isn't much info, but I hope you get the idea.

All of the above units have been in service for many years without issue.

You do not need a GPS unless you want to see other stations or where you are with that radio.

Just put it in APRS mode and it will work on one side of the screen. Do not choose TNC PKT that for computers and other connections.

Mark, I have a D700 on my desk on B band receiving APRS showing the stations as they come up.
On a laptop I have APRS.fi running that shows stations in the area.
In addition, I have my Davis Vantage Pro weather station feeding the laptop that shows my WX station thru CWOP.
Just my 2 cents worth, hopes this helps.

The Garmin units mentioned are fine choices and I still use a Garmin 276C in the truck and occasionally on the lake with the inland lakes maps. Just remember that all those 276, 376, 476 and similar units are no longer available. Garmin stopped producing them years ago and have not made anything like them since. I’ll hang onto mine and use it until the day it quits working. If you can pick up an old 276C on eBay for the right price, along with the correct data cable, it will tie in nicely with your D700.

Mike ARS KD8CZM,

 

OK Mike. Still there a few options in that mode.

 

1: if TM-D700 is used as a standalone then any Serial PUC will work, I’ve used a Br-305 for the Kenwood, but it is an older unit, for my IC-7100 I got a newer Br-355-S4 with serial connector and you’ll need a power cable/adapter, I use a PS2 to USB adapter for power and it works just fine.  You will need the power cable for it, and I’m sure it is in the options when ordering.

 

2. Can use the computer and have it send the GPS string to it, I use YAAC (Yet Another APRS Client) and will soon be moving my Kenwood TM-D700 to the shack from the car as I now have an ID-5100 (in two days) for my car.

 

3. If you like to program and homebrew a bit you can use the “Arduino for Hams” and project 16 is a GPS/UTC and you can add the voice to it, but I did not. I believe you would only need two lines of code to output the GPRS string and feed it to a Maximum chip TTL to RS-232 levels with a MAX232 to convert to RS-232 all for about $50.00 and I’ve noticed that the Skylab GPS unit I use is a bit more sensitive than my Garmin Nuvi 350, but I’m sure all the newer GPS units are much more sensitive that the older units.

 

Just to add in a note, about the “Arduino For Hams” book I’ve commented out the EMIC2 voice chip from chapter 16 GPS/Grid Square and included the Chapter 23 Lightning Detector onto one Arduino UNO, and either is selectable on boot by either a HIGH or a LOW on Input Pin 13. The reason the voice chip was commented out is I ran out of variable space(still working on it).

 

I’ve been using C since 1975 and now consider is my 1st Language…LOL…

Sorry I should of mentioned that in my first post. I will have my Kenwood D700 as a base station cabled to my computer. I want to build this up to a weather /emergency station for ARES/RACES and SKYWARN. I want to use APRS threw my radio as one of my ways of  comms. I do know the TX/RX frequency ID 144.390. So any help I can get would be great.

 KE4KMD, I regards to your email.  I don't need a GPS, just put it in APRS mode? I am sorry but I am confused easy. I believe the whole part of APRS was to use the GPS for ones position. I am looking at making me a weather base station and I want to use my KW TM-D700A for 2M, 70CM and  PACKET.

1.When I put it in APRS mode, Does it need to cabled to my computer.
2.I know one can input manually GPS position, would this work over having a actual GPS unit for a base station?
3. How would I know who to send my first message to as a test of my system.  APRS.FI website??

For a fixed station you don't need a GPS. You can enter your position manually and save it for future use. The only thing a GPS gives you at a fixed station is an accurate time hack.

I've done this many times with D700s and D710s at fixed Net Control stations and temporary WIDE1-1 Digis for Public Service Events (menu 3-4, MY POSITION on a D700).

TNC APRS mode is stand alone. TNC PKT is where you need an external computer for packet or APRS operations using an external programs such as APRSIS32.

As for sending a message, watch your incoming stations list, pick one that can do 2 way (such as another D700) and send them a message. If picked up by an IGATE APRS.FI or FINDU should also show any messages you transmit.

Hope this helps

I have a TM-D700A which I run mobile, but no GPS nor any computer attached.

I have the "A" side set to the APRS frequency, 144.390, and the APRS mode
enabled, which allows the unit to receive, decode, and display in text format
APRS "bursts/packets/messages" from the local (and only nearby) APRS
node/digipeater (I am still confused about the difference) on Joanna Bald in
SW North Carolina. There is no GPS nor any computer connected to the rig.

Even without a GPS attached, the rig will "beacon" in APRS mode; if you have
entered a GPS position, it will send that position.

For example, this rig has been used as an APRS digipeater for the last two
years at Clingman's Dome for the APRS "Golden Packet" event, organized and
sponsored by the "Father" of APRS, Bob Bruniga, again with NO GPS or computer
attached. All the Clingman's Dome info was entered manually, and then all
monitoring APRS stations could receive and display those transmissions.

So there is APRS functionality even without a GPS attached. A GPS is just
"icing on the cake," but is required if you want to continually broadcast your
position while mobile.

Also, it is my understanding that if you want to "see" where other APRS
stations are located, whether mobile or fixed, you need either a compatible
GPS and/or computer attached to display those stations on a map.

Mike and all,

 

I focused on the GPS question and not if he needed one. Sorry about that as the GPS isn’t really needed.

I have a TM-D700A which I run mobile, but no GPS nor any computer attached.

I have the "A" side set to the APRS frequency, 144.390, and the APRS mode
enabled, which allows the unit to receive, decode, and display in text format
APRS "bursts/packets/messages" from the local (and only nearby) APRS
node/digipeater (I am still confused about the difference) on Joanna Bald in
SW North Carolina. There is no GPS nor any computer connected to the rig.

Even without a GPS attached, the rig will "beacon" in APRS mode; if you have
entered a GPS position, it will send that position.

For example, this rig has been used as an APRS digipeater for the last two
years at Clingman's Dome for the APRS "Golden Packet" event, organized and
sponsored by the "Father" of APRS, Bob Bruniga, again with NO GPS or computer
attached. All the Clingman's Dome info was entered manually, and then all
monitoring APRS stations could receive and display those transmissions.

So there is APRS functionality even without a GPS attached. A GPS is just
"icing on the cake," but is required if you want to continually broadcast your
position while mobile.

Also, it is my understanding that if you want to "see" where other APRS
stations are located, whether mobile or fixed, you need either a compatible
GPS and/or computer attached to display those stations on a map.

  You do not need a GPS unless you want to see other stations or where

Just put it in APRS mode and it will work on one side of the screen. Do
not

Sent you an APRS message from my own home terminal at my station KC6VVT in North Central IL for a test.
Your prompt reply was a treat., and happy to learn I am your first APRS chat contact.
.
Happy that you are learning to communicate via your TM-D700.

Will send a one-line email to you via  APRS, and encourage you to reply via APRS, too.

Some call this the 'last mile' Internet link concept!

I have a TM-D700A which I run mobile, but no GPS nor any computer attached.

I have the "A" side set to the APRS frequency, 144.390, and the APRS mode
enabled, which allows the unit to receive, decode, and display in text format
APRS "bursts/packets/messages" from the local (and only nearby) APRS
node/digipeater (I am still confused about the difference) on Joanna Bald in
SW North Carolina. There is no GPS nor any computer connected to the rig.

Even without a GPS attached, the rig will "beacon" in APRS mode; if you have
entered a GPS position, it will send that position.

For example, this rig has been used as an APRS digipeater for the last two
years at Clingman's Dome for the APRS "Golden Packet" event, organized and
sponsored by the "Father" of APRS, Bob Bruniga, again with NO GPS or computer
attached. All the Clingman's Dome info was entered manually, and then all
monitoring APRS stations could receive and display those transmissions.

So there is APRS functionality even without a GPS attached. A GPS is just
"icing on the cake," but is required if you want to continually broadcast your
position while mobile.

Also, it is my understanding that if you want to "see" where other APRS
stations are located, whether mobile or fixed, you need either a compatible
GPS and/or computer attached to display those stations on a map.

to use the GPS for ones position. I am looking at making me a weather base
station and I want to use my KW TM-D700A for 2M, 70CM and  PACKET.

QSL, kc6vvt you are my first contact on APRS! Now that I am up and running, I know I needed to change a few things. I was wanting to see if any one can look me over on APRS. fi , I was told my packet path needed to be cannged.

I am a happy camper here, thanks again every one in the group. For getting me started with APRS!  73'S!   Kd8zcm

Sent you an APRS message from my own home terminal at my station KC6VVT in North Central IL for a test.
Your prompt reply was a treat., and happy to learn I am your first APRS chat contact.
.
Happy that you are learning to communicate via your TM-D700.

Will send a one-line email to you via  APRS, and encourage you to reply via APRS, too.

Some call this the 'last mile' Internet link concept!

I have a TM-D700A which I run mobile, but no GPS nor any computer attached.

I have the "A" side set to the APRS frequency, 144.390, and the APRS mode
enabled, which allows the unit to receive, decode, and display in text format
APRS "bursts/packets/messages" from the local (and only nearby) APRS
node/digipeater (I am still confused about the difference) on Joanna Bald in
SW North Carolina. There is no GPS nor any computer connected to the rig.

Even without a GPS attached, the rig will "beacon" in APRS mode; if you have
entered a GPS position, it will send that position.

For example, this rig has been used as an APRS digipeater for the last two
years at Clingman's Dome for the APRS "Golden Packet" event, organized and
sponsored by the "Father" of APRS, Bob Bruniga, again with NO GPS or computer
attached. All the Clingman's Dome info was entered manually, and then all
monitoring APRS stations could receive and display those transmissions.

So there is APRS functionality even without a GPS attached. A GPS is just
"icing on the cake," but is required if you want to continually broadcast your
position while mobile.

Also, it is my understanding that if you want to "see" where other APRS
stations are located, whether mobile or fixed, you need either a compatible
GPS and/or computer attached to display those stations on a map.

to use the GPS for ones position. I am looking at making me a weather base
station and I want to use my KW TM-D700A for 2M, 70CM and  PACKET.
> 1.When I put it in APRS mode, Does it need to cabled to my computer. 2.I
know one can input manually GPS position, would this work over having a actual
GPS unit for a base station?3. How would I know who to send my first message
to as a test of my system.  APRS.FI website??

I am unable to easily review all the responses here (yahoo & Browser stink) and I don't check this group  very often any more....but...

 

Did anyone suggest my Beginner Guide in the Files Area?.  (YES this is a shameless plug for my work and Comcast destroyed  the version on my site and I haven't been able to reconstruct it.)
