    110 Kilobytes according to page 3 of the Kenwood specialized communications manual. [url]http://www.kenwood.net/indexKenwood.cfm?do=ProductDetails&ProdID=5017&Group=5[/url] The time was set properly but the radio seems to have suffered a reset and the time is now incorrect. The crew rarely interacts with the radio other than to change the channel to talk.

    Tony,
    I guess it depends on how one writes a message. If they only (W) then no designator is used. If they write a bulletin (WB) then it gets tagged as such. Same as with (WP) write private.

    The remaining memory is shown when you connect. The BBS does not clear old messages so once it fills up, it is full. I suggest you (K)ill messages you have read to free up memory.

    You might want to check with Kenwood about specifics on the D-700. The unit is essentially the same as an off the shelf unit so they should have all the engineering specs.

  • Many question connect to ISS   10 years 14 weeks ago

    The (J) command shows stations that have previously connected and/or currently connected. Remember, only 1 station can connect to BBS so one station listed will be the currently connected station.

    The time stamp should indicate when it was heard. I believe the time is not set properly so you will have to adjust it according to the time indicated by when your station is listed.

    Since you indicate that your call is always last, it would be fair to say that the list is an oldest to newest list of previously connected stations.

    Kenneth, But why not all message has a symbol like that.

  • Many question connect to ISS   10 years 14 weeks ago

    I'm actually not for certain on this question. I believe the (P) is for Private and (B) is for Bulletin. My guess is the (Y) indicate that the message has been read by the station it was sent to. The ($) is a new one for me.

    Anybody else see this on a terresterial BBS?

    :idea: Hello ???,

    The best way to track the ISS is using
    trackings software!!!
    With trackings software you can see a
    time schedule when the ISS comes in
    your range!

  • Help needed regarding AGW Packet Engine   10 years 14 weeks ago

    Hello Usman Arif,

    I do not understand your hardware setup.
    You talked about wireless simulation, so I
    asume you have two computers and 2 tranceivers?
    AGW is a packet driver what you also need is packet
    software.
    For your application I asume Winpack 6.80 is
    the best choice (it runs with AGW).
    You can download winpack from my website:
    http://pd0rkc.mine.nu (click on software button).
    If you have installed winpack go to:
    Options ----> Comms Setup -----> Host mode: AGW

    Options ----> Personal/BBS info ----->

    CALLSIGN: QW9IYT (computer 1).
    CALLSIGN: QW9IYT-1 (computer 2).

    When you want to connect (via computer 2) in
    winpack:
    C QW9IYT
    Now goes a data-signal from winpack to AGW to
    your com2 and switch your TX/PTT from your
    tranceiver, and put packet audio in the microphone!

    If you have more questions let me know!

  • ARISS Event Notice -- Coronado Village School Tuesday 24 May!   10 years 14 weeks ago

    It is not hard at all to feed audio to a sound card. That was not the problem.

    I am the person who has started just a few months ago to feed ARISS audio into the AMSAT and EDU_NET servers. Having learnt the ropes on how to do it and to collect information at the same time as to who was listening, I now can move on to get some help, to have backups in case I can not do it myself due to travels or other commitments that may interfere with scheduled dates and time for ARISS contacts.

    The event had been moved up two days, and I did not notice it in time to make adequate arrangements for someone other than myself to feed the audio. I had a prior commitment for that time slot on Tuesday that I could not get out of. Then events occured beyond the control of the person trying to help me out, and things went downhill from there.

    I am sorry for any inconvenience, disappointment or embarrasement that this may have caused. I will do my best for us, the volunteer team to do better next time.

  • Many question connect to ISS   10 years 14 weeks ago

    Use Abort to cancel your last command. For example, if you ask for a (L)ist of messages and decide after the sixteenth message you don't want any more, you can send (A)bort to have the process interrupted.

    If you just send (A)bort, since no action is currently taking place, it gives an error.

  • ARISS Event Notice -- Coronado Village School Tuesday 24 May!   10 years 14 weeks ago

    Whoever was feeding the audio for today's contact to echolink should know that the quality of said audio was ATROCIOUS!!!!! It was completely unintelligeble. It sounded like someone was holding a microphone up to a speaker.

    MY GOD MAN, HOW HARD IS IT TO FEED AUDIO INTO A SOUND CARD?!?!?!?!?!

    I set up receiving equipment at the local elementary school and had an assembly of 150+ kids. When the contact started, all I could do was shrug my shoulders and give an apologetic explanation. I was totally embarrassed.
