Re: objects not displaying on map

Another option is that the TNC is going out of KISS mode.  Most likely the case if your DO have
Set Quiet Time for the RF port to zero, if that is the case.

The difference between CW and other digital
modes comes down to 2 characters:
ASCII Character 32 (hex 20) a defined space
ASCII Character 12 (hex 0C) a carriage return (line designation)

When I fire up APRSIS32, with my radio and TNC2 clone (MFJ1274) at first the map begins to populate with objects. as the session continues, eventually, all I see in the received stations window is my call (with red highlighting). I'll be willing to bet it's something dumb that I'm missing.

Are you connected to APRS-IS? The stations that scroll by initially as
the map populates, do they have an asterisk (*) beside them? This would
indicate coming from RF and not from APRS-IS.

When you say "red highlighting", can you screen-cap and send what you
see to KJ4ERJ@...?

Yes, APRSIS32 runs fine "in the background". I have 3 instances running
24x7 on my laptop, so by definition two of the three are always in the
background. And, contrary to what many people believe (), I
really don't monitor APRS-IS personally 24x7.

Can you make sure Enables / Logging / File Enabled is checked along with
your MFJ log, let it run a while, and then e-mail the APRSIS32.LOG file
showing this error to KJ4ERJ@...? It sounds like non-KISS data is
coming in from the TNC. Maybe the TNC is dropping out of KISS mode? Or
if you close/reopen APRSIS32 (or disable/enable the port), APRSIS32
might be taking it out of KISS mode with a .

Anyone else out there have an MFJ TNC running with APRSISCE/32? If so,
what are the configuration settings required in the TNC along with what
s you have in your XML file?
