  1. HELLO ALL, THANKS TO ALL OF YOU THAT HELPED ME WITH MY COM PORT TROUBLES. ALL OF THAT WAS FIXED WITH A STORE BOUGHT DB25 TO DB25 SERIAL CABLE WITH A DB25 TO DB9 ADAPTOR!! THE KPC3 IS RECEIVING THE GPS INFORMATION VIA THE WINDOWS HYPERTERMINAL PROGRAM. THE NEW PROBLEM IS THAT THE TEXT OUTPUT IN HYPERTERMINAL IS NOT (DOES NOT LOOK LIKE) THE NEMA SENTENCES THAT I GET WHEN I PLUG THE GPS INTO THE SERIAL PORT DIRECTLY. IS THIS A TT3 CONFIGURATION PROBLEM? I ASSUME THAT IT IS FOR THIS REASON THAT THE VISUALGPS PROGRAM WILL NOT FUNCTION. THE TEXT MANAGER WINDOW IN VISUALGPS IS DISPLAYING THE COORDINATES FROM THE GPS. I GUESS THAT THIS MEANS THAT IT IS SEEING SOMETHING, BUT THE STATUS LIGHT ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT OF THE SCREEN IS NOT BLINKING! DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THE DEAL IS HERE? WWW.VISUALGPS.NET ALL THE BEST GENTLEMEN!, BERNARD
  2. HELLO ALL, I'M HAVING A PROBLEM GETTING MY KPC3, TINY TRACK, VISUALGPS, TELEMETRY SYSTEM TO WORK. THIS IS MY SETUP. TX: ETREX GPS ------TINY TRACK 3------- AUDIO IN (A/V TRANSMITTER) TT3 TO RCA AUDIO PLUG PINOUT: DB9 MALE CONNECTOR AUDIO TRANSMIT (PIN 1) GROUND (PIN 6).THESE TWO WIRES ARE CONECTED TO THEIR RESPECTIVE RCA PLUG TERMINALS GROUND AND TRANSMIT AUDIO RX: A/V RX-----TO--------MALE SERIAL PLUG AUDIO RX OUT TO RCA PLUG THE TWO WIRES COMING OUT OF THE RCA PLUG AUDIO TO KPC3 RADIO PORT (PIN 5) AND GROUND TO (PIN 6) THE DP25 ON THE BACK OF THE KPC3 IS WIRED AS FOLLOWS TO THE DB9 SERIAL PLUG WHICH ATTACHES TO THE COMPUTER SERIAL PORT: 2-------TO-------3 TX 3-------TO-------2 RX 4-------TO-------7 RTS 5-------TO-------8 CTS 7-------TO-------5 SG THE GPS, VISUALGPS, AND PACTERM PROGRAMS ARE ALL SET AS FOLLOWS: COM 1, 4800 BAUD THIS SETUP IS NOT WORKING FOR SOME REASON. THE PACTERM PROGRAM IS TELLING ME THAT IT IS UNABLE TO OPEN THE REQUESTED COM PORT THAT THE APPLICATION IS REQUESTING. IF I CHANGE THE COM PORT, IT STILL DOES NOT WORK. I'M FRUSTRATED AND COULD USE SOME HELP!
  3. HELLO ALL, I ALSO AM PLANNING TO USE VISUALGPS FOR MY GROUND STATION SETUP. PLEASE PROVIDE CONSTRUCTION DETAILS WITH REGARDS TO THE CABLE THAT YOU MADE TO CONNECT THE KANTRONICS KPS3 TO THE RX AUDIO OUT. THANKS, BERNARD
  4. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INFORMATION. YESTERDAY WHILE SURFING THE WEB , I FOUND A GUY WHO IS USING A PRINTER MOTOR AS A GENERATOR TO POWER THE ELECTRONICS ON HIS UAV. THE ELECTRIC MOTOR IS CONNECTED TO THE PROPSHAFT BY A PAIR IF GEARS. ACORDING TO THIS GUY HE CAN GET 40WATTS NO LOAD! I WILL INVESTIGATE THIS MORE! HAPPY NEW YEAR, BERNARD
  5. HELLO, THANKS FOR THE REPLY. YOU ARE CORRECT . THE GPS IS 3.15 V , THAT WAS A TYPO! WERE CAN I GET DC-DC CONVERTERS FROM ? BERNARD THANKS!
  6. DEAR MEMBERS, MY UAV PROJECT USES A 12V CCD "LIPSTICK" TYPE CAMERA, A 12V 2.4 GIG VIDEO TX, AND A 6V GARMIN ETREX GPS. WHAT IS THE LIGHTEST AND MOST EFFECTIVE MEANS BY WHICH I COULD POWER THIS SYSTEM? THAT IS, WITHOUT USING SEPARATE POWER SUPPLIES. IN ADDITION, WHAT SORT OF MILLIWATTAGE AM I LOOKING AT TO OPERATE THIS SYSTEM FOR AT LEAST 1 HOUR? BEST WISHES TO ALL, BERNARD
  7. HELLO ALL, I HAVE RECENTLY BUILT TWO BYONICS TINY TRACK 3 ENCODER MODULES FOR USE WITH MY UAV PROJECT. RECENTLY, I DISCOVERED THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO BUILD SOME SORT OF CONNECTOR THAT WOULD ALLOW ME TO SEND MY GPS AND OTHER TELEMETRY DATA BACK TO MY LAPTOP USING THE AUDIO OUTPUT ON MY 1.2GHZ TX. I REALLY WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO BUILD THIS TT3 TO TX OUT CONNECTOR, MOREOVER, WHAT SORT OF CONNECTOR NEEDS TO BE PRESENT ON THE RX AUDIO INPUT . THE VB.NET GROUNDSTATION SOFTWARE THAT I AM WRITTING NEEDS TO USE THIS DATA TO MAKE MY ACITVE X GAUGES WORK. IF THIS DOES NOT TURN OUT TO BE A DISASTER I WILL SHARE MY RESULTS. BEST REGARDS, BERNARD
