Re: Top left rectangle

You can see a little reference in
Here, in Portugal, some station use unproto "APRS,POR2-2" or "WIDE1-1,POR2-2" as UK stations use ...GBRn-n.
So aprs stations are repeated only in those countries.

Thanks for the input, but -SSID standards, I've got a handle on

2004 page.

My comment was on SSn-N standards which are regional extensions to the
WIDEn-N paradigm ( Look for:

We've all become familiar with WIDE1-1 and WIDE2-1 or WIDE2-2, but the
SSn-N path aliases don't seem to have any other description other than
on that page (at least, from what I've been able to find).

About SSIDs standards:
The last standard I found from Bob is in
But in IARU Region I there is a recomendation to use a similar approach in document "CT08_C5_33 NRRL Common standards for APRS".
A copy of that doc is my page
The recomendation is:
"Although in the early 1990's there were some specific SSID definitions for raw NMEA GPS data, those SSID's are no long needed. However, the APRS community has found it useful to encourage users to consider a few simple SSID's as it makes rapid callsign recognition possible. The most commonly used are:
SSID Function
-6 Satellite or special applications
-7 TH-D7 or other handheld applications
-8 Boats (Maritime Mobile)
-9 Stations primarily mobile
-10 Internet only applications
-11 Balloons
-14 Large multi-wheel trucks
- SSID -1 to -4 are normally used when having more ports/frequencies on the same Digipeater or home callsign.
- A standalone Digipeater does not require a SSID, as the assigned callsign would normally clearly indicate what kind of installation we are talking about"

I'm not going to get into the political war of what's a "valid" path and
what's not. I'm still trying to find a list of the SSn-N "standards".

How about a color for those stations running a bogus path? Like RELAY
or WIDE 3-3?

APRS-IS will that allow me to see RF only through my TNC?

Yes, if you disable APRS-IS, the only stations that should scroll by
will have come from one of the RF interfaces. If you do that and
nothing shows up, please turn on Enables / Debug Logging, close the
client, restart it, let it run for a while, close the client and then
e-mail the APRSIS32.LOG file to KJ4ERJ@
<>. Note that this will be
overwritten if you restart the client, so make sure you get a copy
before that.

The colors of the stations indicate how far they are from the
center of
the screen. Red is really close, Green is far away, Black has no
coordinate. Reverse video is used for callsigns in your filter
Yellow background are other APRSISCE/32 stations. Pink background is
"invalid" stations that are either duplicated or too fast or
like that.
