Question on splitting a serial connection

Recommended Posts

I have a Geko 201 with a serial connection to a RCAP2. I want to split the serial connection into two. One going to the RCAP, and the other to a modem on the audio channel of my video TX. This will feed GPS data down to my ground station to be displayed on Google Earth.

What type of decoupling between the RCAP and the Modem do I need to add to do this?

Have you tried a simply Y cable? Often times it works just fine. When data is bi-directional it is a different story.

I agree. There should be sufficient drive current from the Geko for the RCAP and another typical serial device.
