      Information below applies to BPQ32 Only

       

      Setup for Kantronics 9612 and KAM, 9612 Plus & KAMXL allow for a higher COMM Port BAUD Rate, it has been found in the past 9612, 9612 PLUS and KAMXL must

      Use a COMM BUAD Rate of 19200 or above, if less there is a good chance all three will not communicate on both Radio Ports, one cure is to run the TNC in Full Duplex, must be edited in ports sections and TNC Placed in Full Duplex before entering Kiss Mode, I strongly recommend CD Software for the use of open squelch, on VHF/UHF Port please us the Following Commands:

      CD SOFT

      AB 19200

      IN KISS

      RESET

       

      Set COMM Port in device manager to same serial BAUD RATE as TNC

       

      I keep AGWPE on my computer to remove one or more of my 3 TNC’S out of KISS

      You should only use Hyper Term to enter Commands and KISS MODE, Free Version of AGWPE Commands are incorrect for most Kantronics TNC’S

       

      ; With the following definition BPQ32 accesses the TNC directly.

      Please share any Kam-xl tidbits here on the list.  I scored one last

      weekend at the big Western -WA swapfest of the year in Puyallup and

      I'm looking forward to getting it on the air.

        Bill... I will do some research and experimentation...
        I do know the difference in the KAMXL does NOT Apply to the KAM KAM PLUS
        KAM98 or KPC9612...

        I just have simply forgotten what I did to get it to work.. I will work on a
        print out of the KAMXL's Display function and post it along with my MSYS
        Settings...

        In case they apply to BPQ32... I am sure it would as best I remember the
        parameter I had to play with was one set in THE TNC...
