KPC-2 (was: G4LED and APRSIS-32)
- (I'm copying the group on this because there may be someone else out
there running a KPC-2.)
First, are you running the KPC-2 from UI-View in Host mode or KISS?
APRSISCE/32 only support KISS at this time, not Host (I prefer to call
it CONVerse) mode.
If you can use KISS, try this: put the KPC-2 into KISS mode and
configure a KISS port in APRSISCE. Once the port is configured, and
BEFORE plugging in the KPC-2 serial cable, close the client and edit the
XML configuration file. Replace the <Open/CloseCmd>s in the new port with:
Once that is done, connect the cable and start up APRSISCE/32 and see if
you see any received and/or transmitted packets.
