      The Kenwood is not transmitting.  I've carefully watched the D710 screen when I hit Transmit or a Send on a Message.   That said I did loosen and tighten the antenna connections.  I reseated the D710 head and body cables.   No difference.

      I then switched to using RMS Express to a Winlink 2000 VHF node on a local repeater.   Which has worked a few months ago.  RMS Express knows about D710s.    I see it changes the TNC from APRS12 to PACKET12 and then it states TNC not found.   However I can't see a setting to view a detailed log of exactly what commands it is sending to the TNC.

      So it's possible APRSIS32 is sending a command of some sort that is causing the D710 TNC to lockup.   Now this very well could be that I changed a setting in APRSIS32 but I, now, don't recall what it is.   I know I didn't change any settings in the D710 but, of course, I have changed some now.

      So if anyone else is running APRSIS32 as an igate and a Kenwood D710 could they duplicate the scenario and post their Kenwood port log so we can compare.

      Also on APRSIS32 startup I see several unrecognized command messages coming from APRIS32.   So if someone could post their startup log that might also be useful.

      Thanks, Tony VA6OO

      When I click on Transmit in APRSIS32 I see the following in the port log.    Then the Kenwood  D710 TNC stops decoding packets on the D710 display until I do a power off/on cycle on the D710 radio.  Whereupon the D710 starts decoding packets and sending them to APRSIS32.

      I have hit the Transmit button a number of times in the past few months and the local digis have happily sent back my beacon.    But not now.  This also happens when I go to send an APRS message which I've done lots of although not in the past few weeks.   Restarting APRSIS 32 does not help and there is a very similar if not identical message at the bottom of the port log.

      Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?
