Post Free NXDN Chat

this is a free software to test transparent port on NXDN radios, you can chat between radios and also send txt files from one pc to another using RF, if you want to send a text file i recommend to run it as administrator

is it the same thing as D-Rats? I can use D-rats (even though its for D-Star) and do the same thing.
Did it 5 years ago with my NX-x00 series radios, mobiles and portables.

i had not heard about D-rats before, i just download it and what i see is that's not really a chat software, it's a software to send data, may be is a great software but not user friendly

an easier way to send data over serial port could be use hyperterminal or putty, just need to select a port name and baud rate

NXDN Chat is a tool to test transparent mode in a easier and funniest way that D-rats, Hyperterminal or putty, just need to select a Port name and that's it

I downloaded it and I am checking it out, the installer however, is in Spanish. Can you fix that so it's bi-lingual?

I will test it on my NX-5000 series radios.

not a problem, I learned Spanglish in high school, college and in Florida.... oh wait, lived here all my life.

ha ha

Also, Kenwood is looking at it too, one of the NX tech says thanks, they have been looking for something to work with transparent mode for a while now. They been using D-Rats in Serial mode.

Also, I am going to put this up on my blog site, nxdninfo.com if that is okay with you.

I tested this with my NX-5700 and it did not work, I will submit a report to Kenwood and see what they find. Tried it in both Transparent and Transparent 2, still nothing.

I will keep trying and see what I can come up with,
If you have a screen shot of your settings, I will try it with my NX-700 and 800 and see what happens.
