Author Topic: Source for KPC-3 Eprom Upgrade  (Read 2327 times)

I recently awakened my long-dormant KPC-3, last used in 1998.  It has firmware version 5.1, which is not optimized for APRS use.  

I contacted Kantronics, and was told they do not support "obsolete" units like mine (but they would give me $20 in trade towards a new KPC-3 Plus).  Ha!

So I'm wondering if anyone knows of a source for an Eprom for the old girl, version 6.0 through 8.2?

Thanks in advance.

Doug,

I have located an eprom, and now I just need to find an electronic copy of the manual for a KPC with vers. 8.2 firmware.  Any ideas?

Thanks.

Levi, I too have an old KPC-3. If you have time, I'd like you to pass on any info you can about updating it. I got mine in '94 or so. It was the first ones that came out with "GPS Ready" on it.

Thanks

Levi,

Go here to download the KPC-3 manual:
http://www.kantronics.com/downloads.htm

Although this is actually for the "plus" version, the commands are identical (except for the enhanced plus commands, which have no effect in the non-plus version).

I'm not aware of any locations on the internet that have the regular KPC-3 manual so this may be your best bet.

Just wondering how you got on with the KPC-3 eprom. I have recently bought a KPC-3 with version 5 and I am looking for version 6 or above for APRS.

Can you email me?

Thanks

I can help you with the 8.2 for the 3 and 3 plus if you still need them.

Wondering if you have access to the source code. I have an old KPC 3 and would like to update it but I do not have an extra eprom, or a way to burn it.

Any help would be appreciated. I under stand that the KPC3 can be upgraded to 8.2 is this correct?

Thanks
