T3-Mini - Port A wont connect



I am testing my T3-Mini (firmware build 56476). The original plan was to connect Port A to an Adafruit Bluefruit LE UART Friend...
https://learn.adafruit.com/introducing-the-adafruit-bluefruit-le-uart-friend

I was unable to get the two devices communicating.

I connected the Bluetooth UART to a FTDI Serial to USB Converter and tested that it was working as expected, which it was.

Next I wired the USB to Serial Converter to Port A....
T3-Mini FTDI
A_TX - > RX
A_RX <- TX
B_TX - &g t; CTS

I use Putty to connect to the FTDI and I can see it's light flashing when sending data, but there is nothing coming back.
I have both ports set to 9600.
Port A is set to Auto
Port B is set to Flow
Both the Bluetooth and FTDI are working fine at 9600.
I have tried every combination of signal wires, swapping RTS/CTS and TX/RX.

The built in USB work fine with Putty and otwincfg.

Am I missing something?

Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Neil

T2-135 (or T3-135) Rx Level expected from DR-135?



I'm trying to resurrect a T2-135 (and possibly upgrade to a T3... more on that in a moment).

Position beacons TX is working.  However, it rarely ever decodes a received packet.  I think I did see one or two digipeated packets decode.  When out of digital mode, I can hear a number of APRS packets.  In digital mode with the squelch set, I can hear it open the squelch frequently.  However, almost 0 decoded packets and no green LED.

The T2-135 is set for Soft DCD squelch.

I am curious what Rx signal level the T2-135 expects (measured between pins 2 and 4 of the 2211 U2).  I'd like to make sure that is working before going further.

My primary motivation to consider upgrade to a T3 would be adding support for WinLink2k.  Anyb ody being successful using a T3 in KISS mode for this? 

Thank you!

73,
Jason / N7IME

Trouble configuring and using a t3 micro



We just bought a t3 mini for a balloon launch and would like some help in settings to make it work with a Baofeng UV5R radio. 

I made the cable using the info on the T3 mini wiki and have believe that it is set up right.

I am having some problems getting the unit to fire at all. I can write to it from my computer but when I try hooking it up to a usb power bank, it does not show the lights. I know it has power as it does momentarily blink red when I plug it into power but then nothing. I also have 5 volts on the power pins on the USB connector.

Thanks for your help!

OT2 Issue



Just wanted to thank all the helped with this issue. Embarrassingly to say, I should have poped open the case because its an OT1. The case looks the same and all the other units I have are OT2s.

Scott asked the key question. For the OT1 I'm seeing what I should. This all started since the unit was not beaconing as I had it set. So I was going back through all the settings/

Again, thanks for all the help.

RE: OT2 Issue



Sounds like there is a glitch in it somewhere.
Did you save a copy of the settings to your computer? If so load an old copy of it and write it to the device so it over writes what is in there and if it's a glitch in the settings that should fix that . Reset the device (power cycle it)and try to read it and see if the fields show up.
If not then resort to firmware.
Try loading the firmware into it to see if that clears that bug of the missing fields.

I will have to look to see what is in my two ot2's for firmware. Never ran into this and I am always Changing things in mine for special events and one that runs 24/7 and never seen it do that.
Had the unit lock up on me and not able to write to it but never any missing fields. 
Try to load firmware into it even of you have to update it as a last resort.
I have had mine for a long time now and not had any major issues with them yet.

Let me know how that works or if it don't work, would be interested in knowing if it works just in case it happens to mine.

I have an OT2 that is now giving me issues. When I try to check the programming using the Configuration program the portion of the window that shows the serial port programming is missing. Thus I am unable to set the port parameters. I checked this against a second unit and it was there.


I have Firmware 54555 on these devices. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. A screen capture of the window is attached.


Thanks, John - N5TIM

Attempting to get FMI working on my Garmin 7200.  I found the correct cable - Mini-USB on GPS end, bare pigtail on the Tracker end.  Does anyone know which leads go to which DB-9 pins?

Thnx

Gervais,

Have a look at these threads...


On July 3, 2011 I even sent you a copy of my Smoky Lake digipeater configuration. It's still available for you to grab from the arc hives.


All your questions have been answered, read the responses we have provided you. If you come up with a new question, we'll be happy to provide an answer, but you keep asking the same question over and over again. Use the information provided and implement that information.
