tracker 3 and DR06T

Is anyone using the tracker3-135 with the 6 meter mobile for APRS ??? I intend to try it in the Elko,NV area as a digi and i-gate.   Brian  nb9e

T3-Mini power control?

Does the T3-Mini have an output available for power control?

I'm building a portable tracker (all in a box for a backpack) and the Mini is the perfect solution, if it can provide a switch output.

SMT Power Control External Relay

For use in an upcoming balloon flight I am planning to use the SMT open tracker (firmware 54817) to release the flight package from the balloon. I had previously successfully tested the power control external feature on the OT2m and would now like to transition to the smaller SMT configuration.


While I can configure the SMT with otwincfg and can control an external relay with the POWER command in  otwincfg, I cannot initiate the necessary ACCESS permission feature for remote command access.


I understand that I would need to revert to a terminal program and enter the call sign(s) permission in the AUTHLIST. I have used hyperterminal and putty , null modem cable , 4800 baud, 8N1 and have been unable to connect to the SMT except with otwincfg.


I would appreciate any advice on what I have missed in trying to connect a terminal program to the SMT.

Wanting to do aprs to the garmin nuvi 350

hello group

         I am kc9twx and new here. Wanted to know how to run aprs to the display of my garmin nuvi 350 from my baofeng ht?  I am not sure if this will all be plug and play or if it will be a long drawn out project here?

Restricting digipeating on T3

I have read the manual, and the answer to my question is not apparent to me.

I have searched here, but still uncertain.

What configuration options exist that would filter the traffic that a digipeater considers eligible for repeating?

Does the hop count affect elegibility, or does it only apply to packets that are repeated.

Is WIDE1 the only mechanism to configure a "fill-in" digi" or is it possible to configure the maximum used hops (eg non generic path entries with hasbeenrepeated flag) to filter packets for repeating?

I gather from the manual that there is no equivalent to -d/VK2RA*/VK2AMW* .

I did a traffic study, and we are looking at configuration options for one of the prominent digis to improve performance.

I have a OT-USB which was updated to the latest firmware a couple of months ago.

I can enter the command PWAUTH ON and it echos the new setting.

I cannot enter the SECRET command as described in the manual, the response is "invalid command".

Raw NEMA Trackers Leaking Positions into OT3m

So here is one hell of a weird bug! This has happened to me a few
times, but I haven't had the time to make it reproducible, and I
haven't even proven that it's the OT3m and not the i-gates, but here
it goes.

The APRS spec allows trackers to beacon their positions as raw NEMA
sentences instead of the ! or = posits, to allow as many brain-dead
trackers to out-live their usefulness as possible.  It would appear
that the OT3m sometimes processes these '$' APRS packets as having
come from the locally attached GPS when it receives it via the RF

Let that sink in for a moment. My tracker hears someone else's posit,
and then thinks that I am there, and beacons as such.

My most recent example of this was with W6MAF-3 yesterday on my drive
home from Death Valley. My path takes an odd jump down to Hesperia as
seen here: http://i.imgur.com/l9I7Nt8.png Right where W6MAF-3 is
tooling around town: http://i.imgur.com/wZZWkQu.png

Each of my fictional posits near W6MAF-3 happens a few seconds after
that station beacons in the exact same place:

The last time this happened was actually with Cap Pennell, KE6AFE,
which was particularly freaky since I thought my truck was in my
driveway while I was working on it remotely via RF cmd messages.

I don't yet have proof that this really is a problem with the OT3m and
not some digi or i-gate that's trying to parse messages and bungling
it, but it seems to be the most likely culprit.

Has anyone else seen this bug before? Scott might want to look over
the NEMA parsing code to check to see if you're using stale buffers?

Changing profile remotely

I have two questions. First is there a way to change the profile switching parameters from the console or is the only available from the GUI? I need to adjust my voltage set points.

In the same vein is there a way to configure the nonactive profile remotely. I desire to turn off the TXONCHG option but can't figure out how to do so with out the CONFIG X command.

I should mention this is on a Tracker3.

Where is my order?

I ordered and paid for a CT-M2 cable on July 25th.  It's now October 9th and I still don't have it.   My emails to Argent have gone unanswered.  What the heck is happening down there?  I own at least one of almost everything this company makes but I'm at my patience's end with the slow/non-existent shipping and customer service that I've received lately.

ot3m connect problem

I mistakenly disconnected my 0t3m from the usb cord before closing putty.  Since then I am unable to reconnect.  Any ideas?

Alinco DR135MKIII

I have a Alinco DR135 and the Tracker 2 card inside, and I cannot get the busy light to go away, even after setting the squelch all the way out. Just wondering if anyone has ever had that problem and how to fix it? Thanks
