      Looking for a little guidance on getting my port configuration correct so that I have GPS data and APRS data coming into APRSISCE.

      I have a DR-135 (original model) with a GPS unit connected to the front data port. I have a USB-to-serial connector connected to the DB9 on the rear of the radio and then into my Windows 8 laptop. The USB-to-serial is configured as COM1. In playing around this evening, I could either get NMEA configured correctly or get a port configured for the TNC, but not both.

      I did some googling and STF'ing here before my membership was approved and it appears that I need to configure the DR-135 as a stand-alone tracker via a serial terminal program, and then fire up APRSISCE? Do I then just configure the NMEA port inside of APRSISCE? I found the radio config options on the wiki, but there was little guidance with what to do with it and the rest of the port configuration.

      My end goal here is to have both APRS and GPS fully functional via the single COM1 port with the GPS connected to the radio.

        Unfortunately the T2-135 doesn't support NMEA passthrough. You can have
        the GPS connected through the front and have the T2-135 behave as a
        tracker and still connect APRSISCE/32 to the back to receive and
        transmit data as a Simply(KISS) port, but APRSISCE/32 won't get anything
        from the GPS.

        I assume the same holds true for the EJ-41U? That is what I m using, I failed to mention that in my original post.

            In text mode, it might last longer, but I've got no direct experience
            with that.

              Fantastic. I noticed that when I had putty connected to the COM port, I was seeing both APRS and GPS data on the screen. So I'd hoped that APRSISCE/32 would see both of them on the same port and be happy. I even assume that's why I had the check-box on the port for GPS/NMEA.

              I guess I'll look at alternate GPS options that connect to the laptop, since I'm obviously going beyond tracking at this point. And it sounds like I'll need to look at a replacement for the Alinco TNC as well, although it's been running in the shack overnight and is still chugging along.

              Funny how little projects in this hobby tend to spiral out of their initial scope.

                http://www.argentdata.com/products/tracker3.html

                This unit will perform better than the original.

                Check with Argent Data to ensure the pass-through works on the T3-135.

                I have the Tracker3 and like it a lot!

                  Wait, with putty you saw both? Can you send me a copy of that output?
                  Maybe I'm wrong.

                  What port type did you have configured in APRSISCE/32?

                  The failure mode of the EJ-41U seems to be based on total traffic
                  handled. I'll have to dig mine out and fire it up for a while. (I
                  didn't purposely acquire an EJ-41U, but it came inside one of the three
                  Alinco DR-135s that I picked up from e-Bay.)

I have a USB-to-serial connector connected to the DB9 on the rear of the radio and then into my Windows 8 laptop. The USB-to-serial is configured as COM1. In playing around this evening, I could either get NMEA configured correctly or get a port configured for the TNC, but not both.

                    "Funny how little projects in this hobby tend to spiral out of their initial scope."

                    Back in April I decided to get back into Ham radio
                    In the past I used APRS and had fun here it is 4 months later
                    and I've had a hard time understanding how to do what I want to do.
                    I'm 71 I better figure it out soon or they will need to place a tracker
                    in the box with me, wonder if it will be burned up or go on forever?

                        I'll definitely check when I get home, but I'm pretty sure I wasn't sniffing glue. I remoted into the laptop and I've shutdown APRSISCE/32 and launched putty against the comport and I'm only seeing APRS data right now. But I can't verify what the GPS is or isn't doing since I'm not there.

                        So I guess it comes down to the question of, "Will APRSISCE/32 handle both GPS and APRS data on the same port?" Otherwise, it really doesn't make much difference if I was hallucinating or not, right?

                        Thanks much for the help and info.

So I'd hoped that APRSISCE/32 would see both of them on the same port and be happy. I even assume that's why I had the check-box on the port for GPS/NMEA.

And it sounds like I'll need to look at a replacement for the Alinco TNC as well, although it's been running in the shack overnight and is still chugging along.

So I'd hoped that APRSISCE/32 would see both of them on the same port and be happy. I even assume that's why I had the check-box on the port for GPS/NMEA.

And it sounds like I'll need to look at a replacement for the Alinco TNC as well, although it's been running in the shack overnight and is still chugging along.

I have a USB-to-serial connector connected to the DB9 on the rear of the radio and then into my Windows 8 laptop. The USB-to-serial is configured as COM1. In playing around this evening, I could either get NMEA configured correctly or get a port configured for the TNC, but not both.

Do I then just configure the NMEA port inside of APRSISCE? I found the radio config options on the wiki, but there was little guidance with what to do with it and the rest of the port configuration.

                            That's why I need to know what port type you have configured in
                            APRSISCE/32. I want to double-check that the NMEA/GPS checkbox applies
                            to that port type, and if not, I'll make it work if you can provide a
                            capture of what the data stream looks like from the EJ.

                            PS. I don't think I've got a GPS wired for feeding through the front of
                            an Alinco right now. That's a different connection than what feeds into

                              I can't speak for the D700, but in my case, I have a single the TX line from my GPS connected to the center tip of my three-conductor stereo plug. I'm powering the GPS from a voltage regulator as I couldn't seem to get it to power off of that front data port, although some sources seem to indicate that should work.

                              Anyway, I'm happy to help you out or provide you with whatever you need. Just let me know. Thanks!

                              Ok, with KISS, I m pretty certain that the GPS strings will quit coming through. To prove this, can you put the EJ into KISS mode within your putty session and

                                Ok, with KISS, I'm pretty certain that the GPS strings will quit coming
                                through.

                                To prove this, can you put the EJ into KISS mode within your putty
                                session and watch the output? A KISS packet has an unreadable header,
                                but the payloads should be legible. And I suspect you'll quit seeing
                                the NMEA sentences, but only received APRS packets.

                                      Thanks for the help with confirming this. I do have an email into the Argent folks asking if their v3 TNC for the DR-135 supports GPS pass-through.

                                      Yes, APRSISCE/32 will except GPS data on the same port as ARPS data. Some are doing it with a Tinytrak 4 and I am doing it with a Tracker3. Both of these units

                                        Yes, APRSISCE/32 will except GPS data on the same port as ARPS data. Some are doing it with a Tinytrak 4 and I am doing it with a Tracker3. Both of these units are adding the NMEA data within the KISS data. This is one reason I would recommend the Argent Data T3-135.

                                        I'll definitely check when I get home, but I'm pretty sure I wasn't sniffing glue. I remoted into the laptop and I've shutdown APRSISCE/32 and launched putty against the comport and I'm only seeing APRS data right now. But I can't verify what the GPS is or isn't doing since I'm not there.

                                        So I guess it comes down to the question of, "Will APRSISCE/32 handle both GPS and APRS data on the same port?" Otherwise, it really doesn't make much difference if I was hallucinating or not, right?

                                        Thanks much for the help and info.

So I'd hoped that APRSISCE/32 would see both of them on the same port and be happy. I even assume that's why I had the check-box on the port for GPS/NMEA.

And it sounds like I'll need to look at a replacement for the Alinco TNC as well, although it's been running in the shack overnight and is still chugging along.

I have a USB-to-serial connector connected to the DB9 on the rear of the radio and then into my Windows 8 laptop. The USB-to-serial is configured as COM1. In playing around this evening, I could either get NMEA configured correctly or get a port configured for the TNC, but not both.
