      Greetings
       
      20 days a go, I seem to have RF being transmitted. I shut APRS down went to winlink this afternoon to see if old radio died of overuse (HI HI). I was able to confirm that I recieved Winlink email both down and up.
       
      My Config > Ports > Paccom > Com port 3, 1200  Check off the necessary DX, Enable etc.

       

      Enable > Ports > Paccom Checked..

       

      NO RF..

       

      Being transmitted

       

      Path = wide1-1

       

      See below copy of XML info

      Where am I going wrong. I just want to pick up RF and act as an Igate in the area.

        Did you have the TNC locked in KISS mode ahead of time? If you think
        it was, how did you verify that?

            Simply(KISS) uses No-Op <Open/CloseCmd>s and requires the TNC to already be in KISS mode before opening APRSISCE/32 or enabling the port.

            In the packet scroller (left of the window), do you see any packets rolling by that have an asterisk (*) on them?  If so, these were received from an RF port.

            If you bring up Enables / View Logs / Port(<YourPortName>) and enable it, and then ensure that the port is enabled and wait for a packet to decode.  What do you see in the window?
