Secrets to the T3 Micro



Hello all,

I bought a T3 Micro, but am having problems getting it to work. It is beta, so I expect some troubles. The Wiki isn't much help so I'm turning here. 

Wondering if anyone has lessons learned to share about getting the T3 Micro up and running. I got it to finally trigger the PTT on my Wouxun radio by turning off the need to have a GPS fix first. But this raises the question, what does it take to get these little devices to get a GPS signal? 

Here in the PNW, some folks are using the T3 Micro in project boxes with magmounts so they sit entirely outside the vehicle (and hold the radio, li-on power supply for the T3 Micro, with an external antenna).

Anyone have advice and/or config files to share about best practices getting the T3 Micro to run well?

Thanks!

Radios for Digi or mobile tracker

What radios can you purchase these days to use as a digi or mobile tracker Using either an OT-USB or T3? As best
I can find only the Alinco DR-135TMKIII seems suitable and readily available. I used to buy Yaesu FT-1500M
and Yaesu FT-2600 radios but I don’t think either are in production anymore. All of the replacements
have eliminated the packet interface. The FT-1500s I purchase all were short lived as digis. Not really
looking for radios that have APRS capability built in like the FTM-400 or TM-D710.

Command Ack setting???



Is there a setting that I am missing in the configuration software or on the terminal screens which tell the USB-OT to acknowledge commands. A couple of weeks ago while testing the config the board stopped sending acknowledge responses to commands. Up to that time if I would send a command to turn on the GPIO 1 pin I'd see the pin go high and the OT would confirm with an ACK. I want an ACK so that my APRSIS software stops sending the command over and over. I had fixed it one time by reloading the firmware and the known good configuration, however this time when it happened and I did the same thing, I still don't get an ACK packet. I know the OT is receiving and acting on the commands because connected to the serial port I see the commands arrive over the air.

Hoping there 9;s an easy fix I am missing here.

Thanks,
Ron

GPS Connection




Would someone confirm the wiring for a Garmin GPS to the T3-301.  It appears that the connection is Pin 3 out from the Garmin to input Pin 8 Port A on the T3-301 on the 9  pin serial.  Is this correct?

Thanks  VY1XY

Telemetry

Hello everyone

I'm wondering how to send telemetry only, not with position.
Does a command exist for the OT3m?

Thanks

SLOweather Serial Data Cable for Davis

I bought this several years ago but wasn't able to
get it to play nicely with Linux - it was designed
for use with a MS version of windows computer.

Since then I acquired a used Davis data cable and
this has collected dust.

Anyone want this for $20. shipped in USA?

T3-Micro hung?



Hello,

I changed my tracker to KISS mode and changed the PTT setting and it appears to have hung up and is refusing to read now.  The LED is solid red.  Anyone have any ideas?  Is there a way to do a hard reset?  otwincfg doesn't seem to be able to talk to it any longer.

T3-135 with DS18B20 Temp Sensor Issue



Hello, all!

I have a new T3-135 installation and have connected a waterproof DS18B20 sensor to it. When I enable the external temp sensor, I always get the temperature reported as 183.9F (85C). It is communicating, as proven by the DEVLIST command, but the reading isn't right. The sensor is connected such that the sensor's data and power lines are connected to the 1-Wire pin on the rig's rear DB-9 connector and the sensor's ground is connected to the rig's DB-9 ground pin. From what I understand about these sensors, 85 degrees C is the sensor's startup configuration or an indication of an issue. Otherwise, everything has been working well with the tracker.

Is there a setting I'm missing, or another configuration that I need to perform? Any suggest ions are appreciated. Thanks!

T3-Micro GPS RSV or GSA data?



Is there a way to adjust what NMEA sentences are sent from the T3-Micro with GPS? It would be nice to be able to add transmit of the RSV and GSA sentences, am I missing that somewhere?

Thanks,

Josh
