      Hello, My new Kantronics 9612 + works great on a PC running putty in terminal mode. I cannot to the local stations on 223.6 at 9600 baud just fine. TXD is set
      Message 2 of 9 , Mar 18

        Hello,

                        My new Kantronics 9612 + works great on a PC running putty in terminal mode. I cannot to the local stations on 223.6 at 9600 baud just fine. TXD is set to 10

        Equalize and XMitlvl are defaulted.. They seem to work best at those settings… If I change them I cannot connect.

         

                        My problem is when running under BPQ32 (linbpq) actually

         

        My Old Kantronics 9612 (kissmode) non plus worked great until lightning took it out.

        The new one under linbpq in Kiss mode works great on 144.390 APRS as port 1 (A)

        223.600 Port 2 (B)

         

        I cannot connect It transmits no one responds, I do have  heard list in kiss mode..

         

        Seems TXD settings in bpq config are ignored, as  the TX is very very short Like 10ms which should be ok as I was able to connect using putty in terminal mode.

        However if I increase it in the BPQ config to 20 30 40 100 it never changes in the TX it is still a very rapid flash…

         

        I tried adding equalize and xmitlvl to the config.. No difference.

         

        Anyone using a KPC9612+ Successfully at 9600 baud if so can you share your config for that port #.

         

        I am wondering if BPQ is able to set TXD and Eq and XM in KISS.

         

         

        A Port works great… in KISS..

         

        Any ideas… I am pasting both ports of the 9612+

        Thanks for any help..

          In your bpq32.cfg the two comports need to be the same as I suspect they are
          how ever
          You Must set the Serial BAUD rate for both ports A & B at least 19200 in the
          Plus case
          38400 would be better, you will also need to take the TNC out of KISS back
          into terminal mode
          and set the Serial BAUD Rate (AB 38400) the same as in the bpq32.cfg, then
          back into Kiss mode.

          You can't make a TNC talk at the same radio speed (9600) and the serial port
          speed at 9600 BAUD.

          I would increase the TXD to 15 Ms No TX Hang, in FSK mode it runs in open
          squelch mode,
          if TX Hang is set packets will collide.

          There are also jumpers depending if you are using speaker out or data out,
          Data out is 10K ohms,
          For FSK you must use Data jack of the radio.

          My experience with the XMITLVL using the data Jack needed to be around 275,
          equalizing should be
          Enabled, the XMITLVL can only be set while the TNC is in terminal mode, BPQ
          won't do it for you.

            I been playing with settings.. see below

            I have TXD set any where from 10 thru 1000 make absolutely no difference it is being ignored.. Yet it works in Terminal mode just fine.

            Jumpers as are correct.

             

            Just seems the TNC does not care what Is set in bpq config at least as far as TXD..

             

            Yes I set the variables equalize and xmlvl in terminal mode.

            But just had to add them to try anything to get the TXD to respond to my settings evidently there is an issue somewhere.

             

            Thanks.. Jerry

            Ok by changing TXD on both ports I was able to see it Key for 150ms So my conclusion is somewhere Kiss mode ignores the Equalize and XMtlvl settings set in

              Not good..

              In your bpq32.cfg the two comports need to be the same as I suspect they are
              how ever
              You Must set the Serial BAUD rate for both ports A & B at least 19200 in the
              Plus case
              38400 would be better, you will also need to take the TNC out of KISS back
              into terminal mode
              and set the Serial BAUD Rate (AB 38400) the same as in the bpq32.cfg, then
              back into Kiss mode.

              You can't make a TNC talk at the same radio speed (9600) and the serial port
              speed at 9600 BAUD.

              I would increase the TXD to 15 Ms No TX Hang, in FSK mode it runs in open
              squelch mode,
              if TX Hang is set packets will collide.

              There are also jumpers depending if you are using speaker out or data out,
              Data out is 10K ohms,
              For FSK you must use Data jack of the radio.

              My experience with the XMITLVL using the data Jack needed to be around 275,
              equalizing should be
              Enabled, the XMITLVL can only be set while the TNC is in terminal mode, BPQ
              won't do it for you.

              Hello,
                              My new Kantronics 9612 + works great on a PC running putty
              in terminal mode. I cannot to the local stations on 223.6 at 9600 baud just
              fine. TXD is set to 10
              Equalize and XMitlvl are defaulted.. They seem to work best at those
              settings… If I change them I cannot connect.

                              My problem is when running under BPQ32 (linbpq) actually

              My Old Kantronics 9612 (kissmode) non plus worked great until lightning took
              it out.
              The new one under linbpq in Kiss mode works great on 144.390 APRS as port 1
              (A)
              223.600 Port 2 (B)

              I cannot connect It transmits no one responds, I do have  heard list in kiss
              mode..

              Seems TXD settings in bpq config are ignored, as  the TX is very very short
              Like 10ms which should be ok as I was able to connect using putty in
              terminal mode.
              However if I increase it in the BPQ config to 20 30 40 100 it never changes
              in the TX it is still a very rapid flash…

              I tried adding equalize and xmitlvl to the config.. No difference.

              Anyone using a KPC9612+ Successfully at 9600 baud if so can you share your
              config for that port #.

              I am wondering if BPQ is able to set TXD and Eq and XM in KISS.

              A Port works great… in KISS..

              Any ideas… I am pasting both ports of the 9612+

                Jerry, KISS Mode canÆt set those parameters, but IÆd expect them to be left to what was set in Term mode. Is there a command to save settings? 73, John

                  Ok by changing TXD on both ports I was able to see it Key for 150ms So my
                  conclusion is somewhere Kiss mode ignores the Equalize and XMtlvl settings
                  set in terminal mode.
                  Not good..
