Can someone help me walk through the steps of setting up Winlink system with my Icom
m710 RT SSB radio
. I am usining a SCS Pactor
IIe (uprgraded to a III) with a keyspan USB adapter.
I have set up the SSB
and it is receiving/transmitting fine.
I have set up the RMS express program and can send emails through telenet with no problems.
I have connected the modem
and seems to be working (not really sure of what all the lights mean)
The problem is when I try to open a session using Pactor
WL2K. I choose the best frequency, make sure it is clear, and hit start. I can hear the radio
clicking between transmit and receive and see it alternating on the radio screen
. BUT IT IS NOT ON THE CORRECT CHANNELS.
So my question is, what step have I missed for the computer/modem to tell the radio to switch channels. Or do I have to do this manually before hitting start on a session? I thought it did this automatically.
Obviously since I am not working on the right channels, no connection is made and the session is disconnected.
This is so frustrating not having a set of instructions to go by- and I cannot watch the winlink videos one more time!
So,Thank you in advance for your help!
