Re: RF but not APRS.FI

I believe 0x1b is the "ESC" key.  Control-[ also generates the same code on some keyboards, so perhaps it's a problem with fat-fingers.

It's an invalid symbol code.  <0x1b> is not a valid symbol.

Hessu,

Do you know if aprs.fi's APRS parser is case sensitive on the N/S and E/W in an uncompressed
position packet?  Consider:

No, it's case insensitive for that, but it wouldn't accept it due to the invalid symbol code character (0x1B hex).

I'll ask Hessu on aprs.fi, but I suspect you are correct.  Didn't even think to go to the raw packets when I saw the map date was from back in November!

These were gated by KG7KMV, not W7OSG, but that has nothing to do with why they're not showing at aprs.fi.

N7DJX has invalid position, Is it because of n & w instead of N & W

First, it appears that your APRS-IS port is down. That would explain your station not igating anyone.  In the upper right corner, do you see it alternating between your port status and shows that APRS-IS is down?

Enables / View Logs / Port(APRS-IS) and enable that log and you might see what is going on with your APRS-IS port.

But I do see that you are copying N7DJX directly, a total of 5 packets in the past 2 hours.
