    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"

    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
