[aprssig] Need help with opentracker

Need some help. A friend left me a pocket tracker when he passed on.

It works, And is on 145.175 MHz and I am therefore assuming it is the
frequency agile version and he has programmed it up.

It has his call sign in it and it sends packet fine.

I am trying to re-configure the tinytrak part of the pockettracker.

I see on my CRO, data going to pin 2 on the PIC socket when I run TinyTrak
config for version 3.

Any suggestions ? Do I have a dud PIC ?

Jumper settings are -

ON (for the ON / OFF jumper)
FS - "9"
Test is out (ie no PTT)
LED's is "IN"

http://www.byonics.com/pockettracker/ptfa.php

When I power it up it flashes "GREEN GREEN" "RED"

I have done a serial loopback on the socket for the PIC - works

I have swapped my wires on the serial just in case I made a mistake.

Any help me with a "how to" on this pockettracker please ?

The PIC is 16F628A and the board says "HiValue Radio" 2004
