Actually, this is on my home system. I'm running Linux on it, with
4 Desktops. One is dedicated to APRSIS32, full-screen (such as a
22" inch display is these days). The others are for various other
themes (email, etc.). I still find it easiest to just have the one
To Lynn's thought about separate filters, I hadn't considered that,
but it seems to work out ok. I'm not finding a lot of stuff on the
screen that I would want to partition out into separate instances.
I think all I have as a filter is s//Q (earthquakes), which is a
constant source of entertainment out here in California. That only
applies to Firenet, and sources nothing from APRSIS.
As for the Mobile, I'm running YAAC there. It's got a better format
for the small VGA in-dash display (shared with the backup camera),
and it runs on the Raspberry Pi that I have connected to the radio.
The cell phone, if it's doing APRS, tends to run APRSDroid, or I
just get lazy and share my position with the family through Google
Maps if I'm on my way there.

As long as the APRS-IS port is connected to the mainstream
network and the additional port is connected to firenet, you
should be OK from an IGate perspective. IGating recption only
transmits on the APRS-IS port (plus any local server ports you
may be running).
The same filter is sent to both ports, IIRC. I'm not
completely certain of that because my extra ports are all
connected to port 10152 for a full feed.
I do know that the CWOP servers don't do any filtering on any
port, so if you connect there, be ready for a flood of blue
But if you want different filters, then you definitely need
to run two instances.

thought to have two internet ports. I run two instances so
I can see different groups of data. I display earthquakes,
NWS, lightning, and a few other odds and ends, on my
firenet instance. I display the typical items on my
APRS-IS port instance. Each instance has different filter
Um, so I'm
running one instance of APRSIS32, and have both IS and
Firenet ports defined. But the Firenet port doesn't have
Transmit enabled, nor any of the iGate check boxes (RF to IS
or IS to RF).
Isn't that effectively the same, but all on one screen?

My mind just isn’t what it used to be.
You just reminded me WHY I started running separate
instances, one for Amateur Radio APRS, on standard APRS
tier 2 servers, and a second instance for weather watching
on firenet. You also get weather advisories AND warnings
I set this all up in 2016, so I think I
will copy parts of your message and put it in a file for
future reference. My mind just isn’t what it used to be,
or did I mention that already.

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 do this.

Thanks for the reminder, Fred. I had
forgotten about Lynns lightning server. I noticed that
I had -b/KJ4ERJ-LS in my filters which I changed to
b/KJ4ERJ-LS, and it works! Now I remember that I used
the “-“ to turn the filter off without having to take it
clear out of the Configure menu. That keeps it handy so
I can turn lightning on or off without having to look it
I found an old message (#29727 dated
10/22/16 in groups.io) that says to, “…specify a filter
of b/KJ4ERJ-15 or o/LS*…”, but that may be old info. I
haven’t tried either of them recently:
Lynn does of great job of keeping me
from hanging out in bars all night 😜.
almost the same thing. I also display earthquakes and
Release it! It is ready!
Yes! I've had 2
instances running most of the day...One for "normal"
APRS traffic (RF & IS), and a second one for NWS
traffic on firenet for weather (tornado) watching. No
problems so far.
I love the
program! Thank you.

[APRSISCE] Ready for Release?
to the second ("Upgrades") telemetry graph for KJ4ERJ
aprs.fi, it appears that the upgrades are slowing
down. So the $20,000
question is: For those of you running the latest
is it ready to be pushed out as the first General
release since 2012?
