I’m a little bit disappointed. I try to use my kenwood TH-D7 in kiss mode. When I send an APRS packet via [BCON] of my second kenwood TH-D7, I receive this packet with my first kenwood TH-D7 operating in kiss mode but without the flags (0x7E). Here is an example of what I received in Hex Format.
C0 20 A6 A6 60 A6 A0 A8 60 82 82 82 60 40 40 E0 A4 8A 98 82 B2 40 60 AE 92 88 8A 40 40 61 3 F0 27 7C 26 22 6C 20 1C 5B 2F 3E D C0
Same thing when I’m transmitting. I send the previous packet via the serial port without the flags, and I received it perfectly with my handheld TH-D7.
I’m asking if my kenwood TH-D7 operating in kiss mode removes those flags before sending the packet via the serial interface, and adding them before sending the packet via RF? Or simply replace the flags with FEND?
How the kenwood TH-D7 operating in kiss mode deal with FEND character inside the message? Should I replace the FEND with the two byte sequence FESC TFEND or the TH-D7 do it himself?
