      Here is a working D700 RFPort configuration using KWD700(KISS) that works well for me.  I believe this is actually a loosely based on the UIView .CMD file for the TM-D700. There are some aspects of this config that are customized specifically for some PM settings that I have set in place, but you can customize it as needed. This configuration requires that the TNC be off when turning on the port on APRSIS32, the configuration <OpenCmd> and <CloseCmd> statements will make the necessary adjustments to the TNC for you.

      So this has happened to me one other time since I started getting back into APRS.  I have followed the directions here: http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/tnc-d700

      Specifically: "once in awhile, you can disable the port,
      turn the D700 off and back on, cycle the TNC through OFF, APRS (wait for it
      to initialize) and back to PKT (again, waiting for it to initialize), then
      re-enable the port."

      Attached is the log file.  I basically gave up after it couldn't come back online and went about working and then all of a sudden, for no reason of my doing (that I know of), it just started working again.  

      This time I took the following steps in addition to the ones listed.
      1- shut down software and opened it back up
      2- shut down software, shut down radio, turned on radio, launched software
      3- shut down software, shutdown radio, unplugged USB to COM port adapter waited for it to initialize, turned on radio, lunched software
      4- Cycled D700 to no packet, to TNC APRS, then to TNC PKT.
      5- gave up, and 5 or 10 minutes later I noticed it was working again.  You can see the nothing between 2013-11-14T20:18:02.489 and 2013-11-14T20:19:53.275 

      I'm guessing it's my really old D700 that I've had since 2003 causing the problem and not the software.

      Any ideas?
