Davis "APRS" logger and the Kantronics KAM XL
« on: July 11, 2020, 08:39:43 AM »
Another Ham and I set up a digpeater (W8WLC-15) in our area. We got the digi working well, but have had no luck getting the data from the Davis 6540 into the TNC Aux port.

Most of what I found online is for the KPC-3 TNC and while similar, the KAM XL command set is different enough that the suggested settings don't work for the Wx.

I copied and pasted an APRS sentence directly into LT 3 and that worked. I just can't get the streaming logger to be accepted.

We connected a terminal directly to the logger and we see the strings coming out just fine. Here is one of them:
Code: [Select]
If anyone thinks that they can help with this, I can post/PM the DISPLAY dump that we currently have resident in the TNC.
