Re: [tracker2] where are T2-301 frequency settings stored?
- It's stored in the radio's serial EEPROM. You could also probably tap
into the channel select DIP switch and change frequencies that way. I
wouldn't worry too much about writing to it twice a minute for a few hours.
With the MX146 transmitter, the OT1+ firmware has a configuration panel
for frequency selection. I used that recently on my own balloon payload
to alternate between 144.39 and 144.99.

- I am using the T2 with the Nuvi 350 and am able to receive APRS
messages sent to me directly. Is there a way to receive and display
messages sent from the National Weather Service as I do with my D700
and and display them. I am currently operating the T2/nuvi 350 with
my Icom 2820. I was hopping I could display all messages sent from a
specific station say the NWS. Any thoughts or combinations would be
- Not through the nuvi.
You could use a computer through a serial splitter to access the second serial port of the OT2.
Or adapt a display unit on to the OT2.
