Tool for controlling a Kenwood TM-V71 radio

Project description

A CLI and Python API for managing your TM-V71 radio

Requirements

You will need Python 3.7 (or later), and recent versions of the setuptools package (and probably pip).

Installation

You can install this from PyPI using pip:

pip install tm-v71-tools

Or you can install it straight from the GitHub repository:

pip install git+https://github.com/larsks/tm-v71-tools

Configuration

Configuration file

Tmv71 will read configuration ~/.config/tmv71.json, if it exists. This file may specify the following configuration keys:

  • port=<device>
  • speed=<bps>
  • no_clear=(true|false)
  • clear_retries=<n>
  • verbose=<n>

For example:

{
  "port": "/dev/ttyKEYSPAN",
  "speed": 57600,
  "verbose": 1
}

Environment variables

Any command line option can be set from an environment variable named TMV71_<option>. For example, you can set the TMV71_PORT and TMV71_SPEED environment variables instead of passing --port and --speed on the command line.

For subcommands, you need to include the subcommand name as part of the variable name. For example, to pass the --channels 1:10 option to tmv71 channel export, you would set:

TMV71_CHANNEL_EXPORT_CHANNELS=1:10

memory read-block

Usage: tmv71 memory read-block [OPTIONS] ADDRESS

  Read one or more memory blocks from the radio.

  This command will by default output the binary data to stdout. Use the
  '-o' option to write to a file instead. Use the '--hexdump' option to
  output the data as a formatted hexdump instead.

  You can read a range of addresses by specifying the start and end
  (inclusive) of the range separated by a colon.  E.g., to read addresses
  0x1700 through 0x557f, you could use `tmv71 memory read-block
  0x1700:0x557f`.

  Examples:

  1. Read 16 bytes from address 0x1700, version 1:

     tmv71 memory read-block 0x1700 -l 16 -h

  2. Read 16 bytes from address 0x1700, version 2:

     tmv71 memory read-block 0x1700:0x1710 -h

Options:
  -o, --output FILENAME
  -h, --hexdump
  -l, --length FLEXINT
  --help                 Show this message and exit.

memory write-block

Usage: tmv71 memory write-block [OPTIONS] ADDRESS

  Write data to radio memory.

  This command will by default read data from stdin. Use the --input (-i)
  option to read data from a file instead, or --hexdata (-d) to provide
  hexadecimal data on the command line.

  Examples:

  1. Write four bytes to address 0x1700

     tmv71 memory write-block 0x1700 -d 'F0 15 AB 08'

  2. Open 'backup.dat', seek to position 0x1700, read 16 bytes, and    write
  them to address 0x1700:

     tmv71 memory write-block 0x1700 -i backup.dat -s 0x1700 -l 16

Options:
  -i, --input FILENAME
  -d, --hexdata TEXT
  -s, --seek FLEXINT
  -l, --length FLEXINT
  --help                Show this message and exit.

vfo band

Usage: tmv71 vfo band [OPTIONS] [A|B|0|1] [[118|144|220|300|430|1200]]

  Get or set the frequency band for the selected radio band.

  Frequency bands are named using the names from "SELECTING A FREQUENCY
  BAND" in the TM-V71 manual. Note that band A and band B support a
  different subset of the available frequencies.

Options:
  --help  Show this message and exit.

vfo tune

Usage: tmv71 vfo tune [OPTIONS] [A|B|0|1]

  Get or set VFO frequency and other settings.

  You can only tune to frequencies on the current band. Use the frequency-
  band command to change bands.

raw

Usage: tmv71 raw [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...

  Send a raw command to the radio and display the response.

Options:
  --help  Show this message and exit.

CLI Examples

Specify port and speed on the command line

tmv71 --port /dev/ttyS0 --speed 9600 id

Export channels to a CSV

tmv71 channel export -o channels.csv

Import channels from a CSV

tmv71 channel import -i channels.csv

Export only channels 1-10

tmv71 channel export -o channels.csv -c 1:10

Back up your radio

tmv71 memory dump -o backup.dat

Restore from backup

tmv71 memory restore -i backup.dat

Read from memory and write binary data to a file

tmv71 memory read-block -o data.bin 0

Read from memory and display a hexdump

tmv71 memory read-block --hexdump 0

Set port speed using write-block

The PC port speed is stored as a byte at address 33 (0x21). The following command will set the PC port speed to 57600 bps:

tmv71 memory write-block -d '03' 0x21

API Examples

The following examples assume:

>>> from tmv71 import api
>>> radio = api.TMV71(port='/dev/ttyUSB0', speed=57600)

Get radio ID

>>> radio.radio_id()
'TM-V71'

Get a channel entry

>>> import pprint
>>> pprint.pprint(radio.get_channel_entry(0), indent=2)
{ 'channel': 0,
  'ctcss_freq': 146.2,
  'ctcss_status': True,
  'dcs_code': 23,
  'dcs_status': False,
  'lockout': False,
  'mode': 'FM',
  'name': 'MRABEL',
  'offset': 0.6,
  'reverse': False,
  'rx_freq': 145.43,
  'shift': 'DOWN',
  'step': 5.0,
  'tone_freq': 67.0,
  'tone_status': False,
  'tx_freq': 0.0,
  'tx_step': 5.0}

Setting a channel entry

>>> entry = radio.get_channel_entry(0)
>>> entry['rx_freq'] = 145.43
>>> radio.set_channel_entry(0, entry)
>>>

Get the port speed

The get/set port speed methods rely on direct memory access, which means the radio must be in programming mode before we can use them. The programming_mode decorator takes care of entering programming mode and exiting it when the command exits.

>>> with radio.programming_mode():
...   radio.get_port_speed()
...
'57600'
