13603Re: [aprsisce] TNC Wiki - Kenwood TM-D710 Port (APRS mode)
- Nov 2, 2011Hi, according to my D700 manual the radio has to be in "Packet" mode before an external software can control it. Just putting it in TNC mode let's its internal firmware control its APRS functions. These are two different parameters for the radio. Unless you have a workarond with your software, it won't work when connected to APRSICE 32

A collection of command provided by Kai Gunter Brandt attempts to get the radio to switch to the proper mode regardless of where it started. D72s, I've heard, have the same feature when using one of these modes.
D7s and D700s, AFAIK, need to be in TNC mode to do anything, BEFORE starting APRSISCE/32 or enabling the RF port.

Kenwood needs to be in "Packet" mode to be controlled by outside program. Has Lynn made a work around for this?

KenwoodTM-D710 Port (APRS mode).
It seemed it needed some menu options from the radio, so I thought I'd pass them on.
FORMAT: Options are Kenwood, NMEA, Magellan
NAME: Options are 6-CHAR, thru 9-CHAR
OUTPUT: Options are ALL, LOCAL, FILTERED
 COM PORT
OUTPUT: Options are ON & OFF
So for this Wiki page, my suggestions are:
 COM PORT
My question is: What mode does the TNC on the radio need to be in when you connect?
I have also tried the CONVERSE mode of talking with the radio, per a previous message from Lynn, which puts APRS32 in control of all functions and it seemed to worked. But I have to revisit it to see what it was I did to make it work.
I'm wanting both options to select for different purposes.
