question on scs tracker audio input levels



Is there a way to either adjust the tracker input level, or the audio output level of the ICOM718?
I ask because many times, I can hear a signal clearly, but the tracker DCD light remains off.
I am getting a sense that the audio level might be insufficient to drive the SCS input at times.
thanks!

Adafruit GPS



Does anyone have any experience using an Adafruit ultimate GPS breakout V3 with there open tracker? I have mine wired and connected, but it will not transmit a beacon. I know the GPS has acquired a fix from its on board LED. 

If I check the don't require GPS fix box, it will beacon as normal.

T3-135 and DR-06T Digi



I just bought 2 of the t3-135s and have them installed in my 135 and 06T. I'd like to create a Digi/Igate on 6 meters with the 06T. Has anyone done this ??? Can someone share a config file with the appropriate setup ? I want to try and get going something like they're doing on the east coast here in the mountainous area in north east Nevada.  Thanks,  Brian  nb9e

Bletooth on the T3 to use with APRSdroid



I found a bluetooth dongle shown on the T3 facebook page back over a year ago and wanted to see if I could get my T3 to work on bluetooth so I might use it on the ARRSdroid app on my droid tablet. I could not find any referance or place to purchase the dongle on Argent's web page. Is this unit available and where might one be purchased.


Has anyone used the T3 with the APRSdroid app? I have purchased the AP510 portable tracker and it works great with the APRSdroid program on my Nexus 7 tablet but I would like more power as the 1 watt does not quite make it happen in the rural area where I live.


Thanks

OT3 external temperature (DS18S20) errors




I am in the process of setting up an OT3 to monitor temperatures at a cabin in the woods.  As a test, I have the OT3 on the bench with a DS18S20 connected to the 1Wire input, with temperature set to external and degrees F.  It beacons every 15 minutes.

Approximately 4 out of 5 beacons (80 or so percent) are correct, that is the two temperatures (from the internal sensor and from the DS18S20) are the same.  For the other 20% the external temperature is sent as 184 degrees F.

The wire to the DS18S20 is 24 inches long.  It is connected to the 1W input and the GND input on the OT3 terminal strip, and is sitting on a bench in a benign environment.  The radio is several feet away and connected to a roof antenna, so I don't think there is an RF issue.  Power is from a HP 6236B bench supply.

Has anyone else seen this, and if so, what can be done about it?

Using OTUSB & Xastir but NOT in KISS mode

Good day Groups,

I have been digging both groups before posting but i couldn't find the relevant informations i am looking for...

Before going further, is-it possible to run Xastir with the OTUSB but NOT in KISS mode? Not for iGating (for
the moment), but for basic messaging (mainly) and a bit of position report map plotting.

I know many Windows app are available, but i am doing my very best to stay with an OSX solution ;-)
