  Gudday

  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"

  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
