Lightning data (was: Ready for Release?)
b/KJ4ERJ-15 will get you my flying satellites as will
o/ISS*/PSAT* (the * is required as they have trailing spaces.
This should work on both APRS-IS and firenet.
b/KJ4ERJ-LS will get you the individual strikes as well as the
strike zones as well o/LS-*/SZ-*. If you only want the strike
zones (a lot fewer objects, but nearly as informative), just use
o/SZ-*. This only works on firenet. The KJ4ERJ-15 for lightning
data is obsolete and should be ignored.
Note that you should NOT connect an IGate to firenet. I've been told that firenet's 14580 ports are not internally flagged as "IGate" ports, so they will NOT remember what stations you've gated and therefore you will not receive messages addressed to those stations nor courtesy posits from the originators of those messages.
If I thought about it hard enough, I could probably come up with
a combination of APRSIS32 instances to pull off gating nearby
strikezone objects from the -IS to RF without actually using
firenet as the IGate connection, but given their update frequency
during a storm, I really don't think you'd ever want to actually
