Re: [tracker2] OT2M and WS1
- The WS1 will shut off its serial output if there's nothing on the serial
input. If you're only connecting TXD to RXD that might be the problem.
If you connect it to port B, you can use the SNOOP command to see if
it's sending data.

- Okay - almost a year later I finally got back to this project .
Using WS1 to input 2400 baud data into B port on OT2M .
Set OT2M port B to Auto , WT9M-8 symbol set to WX , transmit every 5 minutes , checked the snoop command and saw data . So should be good to go.
I also set it up to be a two hop wide digipeater since this valley isn't too well served . I guess that was the main reason I messed around with this instead of leaving it just use the WS1 to do the transmitting wx data. I also have an LCD display connected to the OT2M so at least I can also monitor the stations it is receiving.
I have the status set every 5 transmissions - does that mean that it will also send the wx data also during along with the data every 5 transmissions ?
