Re: [tracker2] Jumper-settings in otwincfg? Switching profile?
- There are several ways to switch, configurable in the profile switching
screen (not from the command line yet). The 'jumper' is now the CFG
input at pin 6 of the front panel accessory jack for the OT2m. On the
T2-135 it's the DSR line, which is.. 4, I think.
Power control does nothing for the T2-135. For the OT2m, it controls
the power switch - you can set it it to a time in seconds to power a
transmitter, so it only powers up when it needs to transmit. This is
normally used for things like solar powered weather stations. You can
also send on and off commands (or use the PULSE command) to manually
control a DC load.
Quiet time is in weird units - they should be documented in the manual.
16 is the default.
The T2-135 is connected to an unsquelched audio output, so it's forced
into software DCD mode.
