Author Topic: TAPR Mic-E Question  (Read 490 times)

I have a TAPR Mic-E that I built 6 or 8 years ago when they were still available from TAPR.  I never used it on a voice repeater, but I used to use it as a tracker.  

Well I fired it up the other day and it does not seem to be working very well.  The only position data that made it to FindU was data sent with the old Relay, Wide, Wide setting.  Once I changed it to Wide1-1, Wide2-1, there was nothing making it to FindU.  I don't know if the Mic-E can't handle the new Widen-N format, or if the digis in my area are in transition and not handling the data well.  


Can anyone tell me if the origianl Mic-E should work with the new Widen-E format?  If so then perhaps I have a component problem worth trying to fix.  But if not then I could save myself the trouble and buy a new tracker.

Thanks,

Do the digipeaters in your area support WIDEn-n? If not, that could explain it.

They do.  I'm not sure if the MIC-E is handling Widen-N correctly.  I'd like to hear from someone that MIC-E does handle the new format.
