A quick look at some things here reveals that we are not seeing you on RF
apart from via the Igate. Ive checked the heard lists on a couple of local
digis and they have not heard you on RF. You are showing on the Adelaide map
but its via the Internet feed.
Perhaps breaking it down to basics first. What baud rate is set between the
MFJ and the computer ? I usually use 9600 N81 as a rule. The onair Baud rate
is 1200 . Open a terminal (hyperterm, Procomm, TeraTerm etc) and see if you
have something decoding to screen. Is there a TNC prompt like "cmd:" ?
Without this established your not going to get far. Try running a terminal
programe as above and turn ON the TNC from cold. Does this show you anything
on the screen ? The Terminal window in Uiview is not the same as the
Terminal programes listed above.
Once you have a grip on that stuff you are ready to go further. I usually
use KISS mode with the TNC and a driver like AGW or BPQ to talk between the
TNC and the APRS application. UIview will talk directly to the TNC in KISS
Here is the URL to help you set up Uiview in Adelaide specifically.
