Kenwood Th-d7 For Aprs

Recommended Posts

:D I'm having quite a bit of difficulty getting my new Kenwood TH-D7AG to talk with my Garmin eTrex Camo or my Garmin 60C, has anyone out there successfully used this equipment? I sure do need some help.

Thanks.

I'm guessing that the GPS interface needs to be set to "NMEA" output rather then "Garmin". Does that help?

 

You might try swapping the "send" and "receive" lines. RS-232 can be very confusing. DCE devices "listen" on the "send data" line which is backwards from what you might expect. I don't know if the Kenwood is a DTE or DCE. For that matter, I'm not sure which the Garmin is either.

 

You can be sure of "ground to ground" but you may need to experiment with the data lines. You won't blow anything up, so just try it.
