Re: A Question about Digipeating

Rob Giuliano

This should explain it better:

Quoted from that page:
"APRSISCE/32 makes use of these internal commands (TC 0, TC 1) in order to assume control of the radio so it can send packets. In doing so, APRSISCE/32 sends a number of commands to the radio, including a command to set the source callsign (MYCALL). If the TM-D710 is left in control, and APRSISCE/32 is attempting to assert control, you can end up with some interesting effects. Note that APRSISCE/32 cannot provide digipeater support in this mode because the UNPROTO … VIA … command does not support used (*) path components."

The question is, why don't I see the next station that heard me DigiPeat N4PWH ?
I see a thick brownish line connection N4PWH and "ME" on the APRSIS32 map everytime he Beacons that message.
However I never see a line from "ME" to someone else who received my repeat of PWH.

There are actually two or three guys out here in Rural Appalachia, over 100 miles, on ridgelines like me, who DO include my call in their Beacon path. I have seen the brown lines and seen AGWPE-UISS Digipeat them.

I realise that technically, AGWPE->UISS caught the decode through the Signalink off the D710 Data-Port. And that UISS did the DigiPeat. So maybe no seeing I make in APRSIS32 or the D710 would make any difference.

But I thought I'd ask anyway. Any D710 users feel free to email me at mycall from ARRL.  DOT argghhhh matey.

that should be obfuscated enough to belay the spam-bots, hi hi
