Re: Not being heard (was APRS new passcode please)

Rob Giuliano

Is HAMBRG running APRSIS32?
If so, the callsign that is sent to APRS-IS along with a matching passcode is the one in from
   >Menu >Configure >General >Client Configuration >MyCall
which appears to be HAMBRG.

I am pretty sure that is how APRSIS32 works, is that information is sent to the APRS-IS server for verification.  Since HAMBRG is not a valid callsign, there is no passcode for it, and I would guess the APRS-IS server you log into is rejecting it.

If you change HAMBRG to W5GIF-1 (or your choice of SSID) and use the passcode Steve sent, it should work as you expect.  Lynn would have to answer if there is a way to add an change the label viewed on maps.

I have not seen where I put HAMBRG on the internet. It’s having to wait for others to do so. I feel I have something not set correctly? I’m so close I thought it would see my setup first

I checked on and saw:
  W5GIF <Home icon> WNW of Hamburg
  HAMBRG <Start N icon> in Hamburg => callsign is only in the comment.

So it looks like both stations are being IGATEd to the internet.
So what is it that isn't seeing you?

I asume HAMBRG is a local digi or other RF station?
If so, the passcode isn't going to help HAMBRG hearing (seeing) you. 
The passcode allows APRSIS32 to directly interface with the APRS-IS network (if the computer has an internet connection).

If you describe your setup, HAMBRG is, and what you expect between the 2 stations, we can help troubleshoot your problem.

Thank you!  It looks like it working but HAMBRG isn’t seeing me? That’s why I put it on? Any ideas
