    Unhappy TX and RX at VHF using ICOM 9100 and TNC Kantronics 9612+

    Dear All,

    I'm kinda new to this. I want to communicate with another radio station.

    The radio station that I want to communicate with using the following setup:
    Data Protocol: AX.25
    Data Rate: 9600bps
    Modulation: FSK with G3RUH scrambling
    Band: VHF
    Fre: 145.xxx MHz

    Below is the diagram for my setup:

    Anybody can suggest what are the setting for the TNC and ICOM9100 in order to make it work.

    I can confirm i have established the communication between the computer and the TNC using port 2 at 9600 baud rate.

    what is the mode used for the ICOM9100? Do I use RTTY or just the FM?

    I think i stuck either this two TNC and ICOM9100

    Appreciate if you could help me!

    Happy new year!

    Use FM for packet, unless you're on (USB) H.F. at 300 Baud.

    For 9600 Baud you need to use a discriminator output, into the TNC.

    Pin 12 on your ACC socket round the back of the radio will do this, you can use an Earth from here on pin 2 as well.

    Once you have it transmitting data, you may need to fiddle with the various settings to get the KPC running quickly/smoothly.
    The default settings on the KPC "should" work, but they're really only a starting point, especially if you're not on a shared channel.

    [edit] not sure where you are in the world - check if you can use 9600Baud on VHF...
