      I just finished installing a new I-gate using a Yaesu FT-7800 / KPC-3+/ APRSIS32 combination. I built the TNC-Radio cable per recommendations and powered up the KPC-3 in KISS mode. On the receiving end things work perfectly with good IGating. On the transmit side however, even though a beacon is initiated/transmitted/and audio is received with a TH-D72, no packets are being decoded from the Yaesu by the HT. Also, when I connect the HT to another PC and open APRSIS32, no packets are displayed on the port log. The HT works fine handling other received packets.

      Don't know if this is a transmitter deviation level issue or something else in the setup. Here is a sampling of 3 traces:

        You are likely over or under driving your radio.  Check the kpc manual for how to adjust the transmit level and adjust it to have around 3kHz of deviation (or if you don't have a meter take the level adjust it so the audio level of your transmission sounds around the same as other stations you hear on your HT... takes a bit of trial and error. )

          Also remember that the KPC3+ in KISS mode will start to generate delayed
          packets in a few days/weeks. There is all kinds of documentation
          available from a few years ago. Kantronics never fixed the bug as far as
          I know. If you can restart the KISS mode periodically it will fix the
          problem.

              Thanks to all who offered suggestions....here's what I've done so far:

              1. Hard reset the kpc-3+ to place it back to Command mode.
              2. Reset the XMITLVL from 100 to 80 (%).
              3. Restarted and tested operation by successfully using "Airmail" to sucessfully send an email over Winlink 2000.
              4. Placed the TNC back to KISS and Reset.

              Again receiving packets successfully on aprsis32, but transmitted beacons still not displaying on TH-D72 HT or being digipeated by other stations. Where to go next to trace this mystery?

              73,
              Scott, nt5sm

                Did you change the XMITLVL from 100 to 80, or did you change it from
                502 to 401 (80% of the maximum value of 502)

                That would indicate that you are able to be decoded IF your Winlink
                2000 tests were using RF.

                So, can you explain how you are determining that you are not being
                digipeated? I'm not trying to be a pain, but some people base their
                observations on incomplete data.

                I'm not sure what's up with the TH-D72 not displaying the packets
                unless you have it off frequency, or not in APRS mode. If it is in
                PACKET mode, you will not display anything on screen.

                Provide more information.

                  My oversight sorry.. I had revised from the default value of XMITLVL 100 to 80.  I see now this was not a percentage of max.

                  Did you change the XMITLVL from 100 to 80, or did you change it from
                  502 to 401 (80% of the maximum value of 502)

                  That would indicate that you are able to be decoded IF your Winlink
                  2000 tests were using RF.

                  So, can you explain how you are determining that you are not being
                  digipeated? I'm not trying to be a pain, but some people base their
                  observations on incomplete data.

                  I'm not sure what's up with the TH-D72 not displaying the packets
                  unless you have it off frequency, or not in APRS mode. If it is in
                  PACKET mode, you will not display anything on screen.

                      Listening to 144.390 and observing the packets being decoded is the
                      best way. Some people like to base their observations on the APRS-IS
                      stream, and in your case, being on the internet, you can not see any
                      packets that *may* have been digipeated due to the APRS-IS filtering.

                      Okay, that adds more mystery to the equation.

                      I would have ramped through the levels as a first step. Listen to the
                      audio level on your HT. Starting from zero, the audio level will
                      increase until it starts clipping. At that point the volume will no
                      longer increase. Turn the level down until it starts to get quieter,
                      and then turn it down some more.

                      Too much level is bad, too little is not as bad.

                                That looks good here....KT5TK-12 is the nearest digi but he has no I-gate.  The SW of Houston lacks in coverage so trying to fill a hole.  Only rooftop Ringo

                                  Here's the raw RF packets I've captured sourced by NT5SM. Looks like it
                                  was working on the 1st and 2nd. Nothing heard on the 3rd, and just a
                                  couple of packets just a bit ago. All times are Eastern time (UTC -0400).

                                    You might want to look at modifying the repeater object that you are sending out. First off, drop the multiple hop outgoing path... The object should go out to an area equal to what you should be able to hear it over. It is best practice to have a local digipeater send the object as it has a better chance of not causing collisions than a home station does. Sending from a home station and then through a digipeater uses twice the amount of airtime than from a digipeater. 

                                    You also might want to format the voice repeater object to match the voice repeater specification so that the full information is available and tunable on the QSY capable radios. It is still fully humanly readable, and able to be understood by the radios as well.

                                    We've moved from trying to get the thing to work into the realm of making it work optimally now...

Tried the HT out on a walk and still no beacon  from home being displayed.    http://aprs.fi/#!call=a%2FNT5SM-9&timerange=3600  I will try to send a message from home and see if I get it direct or via KT5TK. BTW, what site are you going to see my RF packets?8

                                      You might want to look at modifying the repeater object that you are sending out. First off, drop the multiple hop outgoing path... The object should go out to an area equal to what you should be able to hear it over. It is best practice to have a local digipeater send the object as it has a better chance of not causing collisions than a home station does. Sending from a home station and then through a digipeater uses twice the amount of airtime than from a digipeater. 

                                      You also might want to format the voice repeater object to match the voice repeater specification so that the full information is available and tunable on the QSY capable radios. It is still fully humanly readable, and able to be understood by the radios as well.

                                      We've moved from trying to get the thing to work into the realm of making it work optimally now...

                                        At least until I get these features implemented directly in the local client.

                                        The packet logs below were extracted from my central logging.  I'm hoping to come up with a way to allow IGates to send this information directly to "interested" parties on an approved basis, but I haven't yet overcome the complexities of getting the packets through Internet routers and gateways and really don't want to open up that support can-of-worms.  ("Why can't I see XYZ's RF packets?  Did you open a port on your router to let the packets come in?  What's a router...).

                                        You might want to look at modifying the repeater object that you are sending out. First off, drop the multiple hop outgoing path... The object should go out to an area equal to what you should be able to hear it over. It is best practice to have a local digipeater send the object as it has a better chance of not causing collisions than a home station does. Sending from a home station and then through a digipeater uses twice the amount of airtime than from a digipeater. 

                                        You also might want to format the voice repeater object to match the voice repeater specification so that the full information is available and tunable on the QSY capable radios. It is still fully humanly readable, and able to be understood by the radios as well.

                                        We've moved from trying to get the thing to work into the realm of making it work optimally now...
