Foxview3 short review by Benoit
21/09/2010 Foxdigi reception enhancement mods Here
I Just received Friday the 27 of august 2010 my Foxview3
opening the Box Received from Dinesh VU2FD http://www.vu2fd.com/ :
Really nice PCB, each set of component
labelled which make assembly of the kit quite easy.
Notice the high quality double side PCB
2 hours Later:
It is done after checking Ground and VCC for
all main Chip.
Easy welding due to high quality PCB.
Let's start the Foxview3 With the LCD screen :
Lets connect Foxview3 to hyperterminal at 4800,8, n,1
and start config FoxDigi:
( Pic 16F88 firmware from wb8wga )
After connexion to a radio foxdigi is perfectly working
sending and receiving beacon, Digipeater mode also working fine !
After this i wanted to test Foxview3 Aprs viewer but was
not able to view any Beacon ...
As my mx614 came from argentdata i was wondering if it was faulty
.... BUT after checking the differents schematic
i notice that in Foxview3 part list a 10 K Ohms R22 was used
instead of a 100 K Ohm used in other item and in Foxview
( R6 100 K in Foxview part list ) in acordance with mx614 datasheet
bettween pin 5 ( RXin of MX614 ) and audio in.
So i just changed this R22 from 10K to 100K and my Foxview3
now alive perfectly working with my argentdata mx614 displaying incoming and
Foxview3 Viewer Firmware for pic 16F28A

Thanks all From France
