I have connected the GPS
NMEA0183 data from the GPS
to the Icom
and all is good; however when I connect the same data to the Icom
M802 HF, the 802 won't accept it.
It seems to me that the 402 will accept NMEA
ver. 2 while the 802 requires NMEA
ver. 3 and of course my ancient GPS only outputs NMEA ver 1.5 and ver. 2.
Does anyone know of a simple fix (like new software
for the 802) or a way to fool something somewhere?
Supplementary question (perhaps rhetorical), why would Icom design one radio
to accept ver. 2 and the other to accept ver. 3 considering the radios are the same age and the GPS data is really only there for the DSC
Or have I missed something basic
