Re: Igate setup

ALL aprs server respond to the standard port numbers. It’s part of the server software. You will want to connect to port 145980 and then send a message to “server” to set up your port filters. Some programs do this automatically when you connect to the server on port 14580. Part of the setup screen has a filter option you can input. For instance if you add the filter m/250, you will only get data from the stream that is 250 kilometers radius from your reported location. You probably don’t want the full aprs IS stream.

 

Here are some pages that describe the filters and syntax:

Lynn,

Thanks for the info.  I had visited the noam.aprs2.net url looking for the port number but did not find any reference to APRS,   The website appears to be the host for some form of HTTP server product called NGINX.
