Almost two days since I have heard anything. Anybody know whats happening with 145.825??
I'm trying to use my Yaesu FT-847 for ISS Packet Radio and this is a nightmare !
As you know, in full duplex mode, this transceiver can't be used on the same band and in simplex mode, CAT interface don't manage the VFO B so there is no way to correct the doppler frequency for TX but only for RX ! It's a shame for such a transceiver...
I am in no way a technical writer, but I tried to capture the steps I took to configure the equipment, and successfully have a packet digipeated by ISS.
Please note, I had never been exposed to APRS or packet until about 7 days before attempting this. And I could not find such a document with my setup, so I decided to put this together. Maybe it will help others who gave up in frustration.
