      To any of you that have a Kenwood D710,

      I just posted a development release that includes support for the
      Kenwood D710 in both Packet (Kenwood) and KISS mode. I've hard-coded
      (for now) the initialization strings and de-initialization strings that
      drive the TNC as required to do the work. The Kenwood mode
      theoretically enables GPS data to come in alongside the TNC data and it
      will get parsed. I don't DO anything with it, but I theoretically
      detect it and parse it.

      If anyone has a GPS connected to their D710 and is using it in UI-View,
      I'd appreciate it if you can give this version a try and capture the
      output of the [PortName] (see below) Trace Log and e-mail it to
      KJ4ERJ@....

      To download this development version, you must set <Update.Development>
      to 1 in your XML file, then hit About.

      To create a new RF port, select Configure / Ports / New Port. Select
      the Type (Kenwood for the NMEA/D710 TNC data) and give the port a name
      (that's the [PortName] above). Tell it No about a TCP/IP port and
      configure your COM port appropriately. Then you need to Enables / RF
      Ports / [PortName] to get it communicating. But BEFORE you do that,
      toggle Enables / Logging / General + File so that the newly created
      [PortName] Trace Log automatically opens and captures all of the startup
      stuff.

      You should see lots of command flying that set up the TNC (borrowed from
      the TM-D710_KWD_UIV.CMD file) and then text for any packets received.
      If you've got a GPS connected, you will (hopefully) see NMEA sentences
      going by as well. That's what I'm after, so if you can hit the Copy
      menu option on the Trace Log window and paste it into an e-mail, that'd
      be wonderful!

      If you have any questions, APRS message KJ4ERJ-12 as I have jury duty
      starting tomorrow and don't know what Internet/E-mail access I'll have
      but they said I can bring my cell phone.

      I'll be watching for the early adopters to be upgrading to this
      version! It's getting closer and closer to release. Now I need to put
      in configuration options for all of the new port enables, port-specific
      paths, and Open/Close command strings. You can see these in the XML
      file between the <Port Name=xxxx> and </Port> elements. Yes, I'm now
      nesting configuration parameters.

        Cool stuff... I'll see if I can give it a try. I have to go grab my
        truck from the dealership, do a couple 3 hours of work to get ready,
        then drive 5 hours to a worksite, and then start working on getting a
        tower ready to stand on Tuesday. Maybe after all that I might be able
        to poke at the radio a bit.

        I might be a bit tired though...

        I'd still like to see an add on mode, rather than these take over
        modes. Putting the D710 into packet or KISS mode will remove all of
        the APRS functionality built into the D710. If you connect to the COM
        port on the back of the control head, and enable the com output, you
        will get the received waypoint information, and also the GPS data
        interleaved. By connecting and parsing here, you can see all incoming
        packets, as well as get location information from the GPS.

        With the D710 in Packet or KISS mode, I lose all the interactive
        functionality between the D710 and my AvMap G5, which is considerable.
        Having APRSISCE/32 hanging off the com port, you could get an enhanced
        operation mode for the D710.

        Anyway, I have the latest version now, and will give it a try, and
        report back what I see...

        Maybe we can call the program APRSISCE/32/D710 now.

          Ok, now I'm really confused. I AM connected to the back of the control
          head. That's where the TNC is (as I understand it) and the port on the
          body is just for radio control functions. I want to support a port
          where I can receive ALL of the APRS packets, messages (not just for
          MYCALL), weather, telemetry, status, capabilities, not just parsed and
          formatted waypoint information. Interleaved GPS is what I'm also after.

          >

          Where does the AvMap connect and what mode is the D710 running in with
          the AvMap connected? With all of the APRS and display functionality I'm
          after, I don't want to put a lot more time into just one platform,
          especially when it's just one platform with another specific platform
          attached. Is there any clear, concise documentation on exactly where I
          can plug in, and what data I'll see, in this AvMap connected mode? I've
          downloaded the D710 documentation from Kenwood's site, and it's rather
          completely user-ish, not developer-ish. Not to mentiont that I really
          don't want to take the time (right now) to read 51+65+100 pages not
          including any AvMap manual that I don't already have.

            You're on the right track with the way you are doing things with the
            Kenwood D710.

            You are writing a program that usurps control of the TNC, and becomes
            the primary brains behind the operation.

            I would like the program to become an adjunct to the D710/GPS combo,
            becoming an extended display to the screens already present.

            What I suspect will happen when I let APRSISCE/32 take control is that
            I will lose all waypoint output to the attached GPS. My expensive and
            highly useful GPS now might as well be a $5 hockey puck style GPS. It
            will have no clue as to what is happening around it in the APRS world.

            Given the choice between the laptop running with APRSISCE/32, and the
            AvMap G5, the AvMap wins still. I currently get more information
            specific to my needs from the AvMap. Now, that could change as more
            features are added to APRSISCE/32.

            I'll try and play as soon as I can. I will be over 300 miles from the
            nearest APRS network for a couple days though.

              Hi All,

              Off Topic I know but I thought you might be interested in the following

              http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/08/10/paris_update/

              Basically they plan to launch a paper plane via a weather balloon and then release the plane and track it back to earth.

              The Balloon will have GPS for recovery. I message them and suggested they use APRS on the plane, they seem keen on that.

              Awaiting a reply to see if they need any help.

               

              A bit light hearted, but they are serious and do have some sponsors.

                I did this, and got two windows open. One of them had the initialization commands, and then the streaming data from the GPS. I thought it was being written to a log, and shut down APRSISCE/32. Then I read below.

                I tried following the steps above, but can't get the program to send the initializing commands again, at least not so that I can log them. I have yet to figure out how you have things all set up. I tried connecting a radio once before, but I'm not sure I understand how all your ports work. I'll have to read the wiki tonight and figure it all out. You're going to all the trouble to make it work with a radio that I have, I'm going to have to reciprocate and do some work to figure out how to get it working.

                I did copy some text from the various windows that popped open on me. Again, not sure what the significance of each is yet.

                All of the GPRMC strings are filled with null values, and as expected, APRSISCE/32 doesn't know where it is. I sent a couple packets from my D7, with a static location not far away. It decoded and showed up on my screen, so that part is working.

                I also captured the pass through information presented out the com port when the D710 is running the show. It does not have a line feed character in the output, so it all runs together on one line.

                Here it is cleaned up into separate lines:

                The D710 outputs a proprietary string that contains location information. Interleaved in that is the APRS packet information as received. Below I sent two position packets, and a message from my D7.

                I sent an email about this concept before with a little more detail on the breakdown of the Kenwood position packet.

                March 3, 2010

                Lynn,

                I have finally found some time to sit and contemplate, while sitting
                in my truck with the AvMap G5 and Kenwood TM-D710 staring at me.

                I pulled out my interface cable, and slapped it into the D710 control
                head. I have the D710 configured to spit out copies of the APRS
                information received through the com port. Using Teraterm, I captured
                a few packets...

                The D710 forwards the current GPS information out the port constantly,
                but in a $PKWDPOS string rather than the usual RMC, GGA, or GLL
                strings.

                I believe this is how it breaks down...

                Interleaved into the GPS data is the actual APRS data...

                Below is a capture of some data while I sat still. I had my D7 send a
                couple packets to show the APRS data interleaved. After an APRS packet
                is displayed, the cmd: prompt pops up.

                I also had to enable incoming CR+LF in Teraterm to get the display to
                scroll. I would guess that the lines only end in <CR>, with no <LF>
                character.

                If APRSISCE could digest the $PKWDPOS GPS data, I could run the
                program hanging off the D710's com port, and use it as an alternate
                supplementary display without needing to disable the APRS software in
                the D710, and run in KISS mode.  What do you think about supporting
                that mode? Kai on the D710 forum has some in depth knowledge of the
                communications out the back of the D710 control head.

                Also, another thing that UI-View could do that was handy, was to strip
                the GPS information out of the incoming mixed GPS/APRS streams from
                the Kenwoods, and send pseudo GPS strings out another port. I would
                daisy chain UI-View into other programs such as Net Stumbler, or
                RadioMobile. These programs both want location information internally,
                and being able to daisy chain them onto UI-View was great, as I got to
                use both UI-View and the other program concurrently, sharing the GPS
                data being passed through the D710. I believe UI-View recreated the
                $GPRMC string from the data available.

                Hey, what about this for a name? APRS ISCE^32

                We drop sounding a couple letters in there and change the slash to a caret add a little poetic license... you end up with APRS ISCE^3 2 (ice cube two, or just simply ice cube). See, it really is a cool program!

                The name really is a mouthful... Garrett calls it APRSISCExyz123. WinAPRS and MacAPRS were hokey names, UI-View was getting even worse, but you've got a huge nasty mouthful.

                Have fun on jury duty... try to concentrate on the case, and no doodling code when you're supposed to be weighing the facts being presented.

                    Edit your XML file
                    (http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/editing-xml-configuration) and set
                    <Update.Development> to 1. After starting the client back up, the About
                    box will check for the development version instead of the general
                    release. Note that you probably want to keep a copy of your original
                    XML and EXE in case you want to go back. The development version
                    upgrades the XML such that your ports will be gone if you go back. And
                    after running the development version, you have to shut it down to set a
                    few other <Port>-based parameters to enable transmitting and Igating.

                    Lynn (D) - KJ4ERJ

                    PS. The <Port>-based parameters you'll want to check are:

                    <Enabled>1</Enabled>
                    <XmitEnabled>1</XmitEnabled>
                    <RFtoISEnabled>1</RFtoISEnabled>
                    <IStoRFEnabled>0</IStoRFEnabled>

                          Tried it and clicking about reveals a new development version is available
                          but the download fails every time.

                          I have no idea why.

                            Coral CDN works when it works, but that's why I have the Direct option
                            in there as well. I've got my server a big busy at the moment, but it
                            should be getting better over the course of the night. Those that had
                            trouble, give it another shot and definitely say "Yes" to bringing it
                            down direct.
