Already been considered, and even polled
(http://groups.yahoo.com/group/aprsisce/surveys?id=2293519). Now that
you mention it, I never got around to adding this to the ToDo list.
I'll be doing that now, but I'm not sure when it will be implemented.
Also, I suspect that setting the time is an administrator-privilege
required function on Windows 7 (and maybe Vista), so it might not work
well on those platforms.

Hi Lynn,
Is it possible to set the system time based on the GPS on either
platform? I have not found that to be an option but it is quite
possible it is there and I missed it.
Thanks!

Now, I'm mystified

kc8sfq
 

OK. I have absolutely NO idea what I did, but I have APRSIS32 running. No RF yet, but that's just a hardware issue (I hope). It'd be even cooler if I had some idea what I did. I was randomly trying menu options when it started running properly. I've been able to restart the program several times tonight, so I'm becoming convinced it's not just a flook.

Thanks to all who made suggestions. A little bit here and a little bit there. A bit at a time, the puzzle came together. Now, it's my turn, I'll help if I can. Often, the problem is so simple that it never gets mentioned, that's the stuff I trip over.

Now, I'd better shut down ans 'safety' the electronics before the storm gets here

Thanks and 73 Ron

Your think your Yahoo problem is difficult, In my case this is not my name or my primary email address. Because my real email is listed as secondary on this account I can not enroll another id for myself. I have tried to sort is out several times with Yahoo and have gotten nowhere. I just gave up use it as is.

I just started playing with APRSIS32 a few weeks ago and the people here were a great help to me getting it going. It is a lot easier to set up and use when compared to UIVIEW 32 which I have used for years.

The two symbols I wish to exclude (-s) are weather: /- and water: w. I cannot create a string that filters them both. It seems that any string I have tried only catches the last symbol code in the string.
Commas do not work as a delimiter, and the information below only shows a single complex symbol filter. I am asking how to construct a filter that excludes two separate symbols.

So, s/pri/alt/over should list all of the primary symbols as pri and all

I'm not sure what you mean by "/_" since / is the primary table

Re: Symbol Filter

Thanks to everyone for the help. My map now shows only a small number of WX stations compared to before,some of these RF links are 60 miles away, that's why I am only doing an IGate only station. I admit that I saw so many WX stations, 50 or so, that I didn't worry about the digipeated ones!

That is correct. The APRS-IS server filter only seems to like a single instance (each) of an s/ or -s/ filter.

The two symbols I wish to exclude (-s) are weather: /- and water: w. I cannot create a string that filters them both. It seems that any string I have tried only catches the last symbol code in the string.
Commas do not work as a delimiter, and the information below only shows a single complex symbol filter. I am asking how to construct a filter that excludes two separate symbols.

Re: Symbol Filter

I see your filter of "m/80 r/40.01621/‑105.34095/80 r/40.01460/‑105.22072/80 ‑s/Ww_/Ww_" at http://firenet.us:14501/ and that looks correct. I don't think I need the XML file now that I know you do have an RF port and understand those ramifications.

However, I would still like to know what station(s) are showing up that you don't think should be showing up with the filter you're running now. It should work, however, I've seen strange things at some times of the day with the firenet.us server. It seems to put out a blast of stations that shouldn't come through the filter at some points during the day, typically I've seen it at 5:00am eastern time. I have not yet isolated what causes this behavior, but it has also been observed by W7BOZ.

If you can tell me what station(s) are coming through the filter above, I might be able to help determine why they're showing up.

PS. I tried some remote queries to your station, but did not receive an answer. Do you have Messages unchecked in Configure / Ports / APRS-IS?

s/pri/alt/over Symbol filter pri = symbols in primary table
alt = symbols in alternate table
over = overlay character (case sensitive)

For example:
s/-> This will pass all House and Car symbols (primary table)
s//# This will pass all Digi with or without overlay
s//#/T This will pass all Digi with overlay of capital T



For my "Flight" monitoring instance, I use:

s/'O^X@=/^O@Q -s/_

So, s/pri/alt/over should list all of the primary symbols as pri and all
of the alternate symbols as alt. What I haven't had a need to figure
out is how to filter multiple alternate symbols with different overlays.

I'm not sure what you mean by "/_" since / is the primary table
selector. You probably want either -s/w_ or -s/w/_ depending on which
table's _ you are wanting to eliminate.

One more thing. The filter only affects what comes in from APRS-IS. If you have an active RF port, EVERY station received over RF is displayed, regardless of the filter settings. If you check the station information popup of the station(s) you don't think you should receive, they may be coming in via RF.

The two symbols I wish to exclude (-s) are weather: /- and water: w. I cannot create a string that filters them both. It seems that any string I have tried only catches the last symbol code in the string.
Commas do not work as a delimiter, and the information below only shows a single complex symbol filter. I am asking how to construct a filter that excludes two separate symbols.

Re: Time set from GPS

At about 11-06-08 08:20 AM, Lynn W Deffenbaugh (Mr) whilst discussing "Re: [aprsisce] Time set from GPS", wrote the following:
 

Already been considered, and even polled (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/aprsisce/surveys?id=2293519).  Now that you mention it, I never got around to adding this to the ToDo list.  I'll be doing that now, but I'm not sure when it will be implemented.  Also, I suspect that setting the time is an administrator-privilege required function on Windows 7 (and maybe Vista), so it might not work well on those platforms.

Hi Lynn,
 
Is it possible to set the system time based on the GPS on either platform? I have not found that to be an option but it is quite possible it is there and I missed it.
 
Thanks!
 
Best regards,
Fred, N7FMH


The system time on my WebDT tablet is unreliable (lots of drift / loss of time with long power-off periods) anyways.  If APRSISCE/32's time was GPS derived and not system derived, that would be a huge plus for me.

With the Tilt, sometimes it seems to take an indefinite amount of time to get a fix, even with a clear sky (no vehicle roof). I usually turn off the GPS and restart APRSISCE. The GPS FIXes almost immediately.

I've seen that behavior as well.  I just chalk it up to one of the GPS oddities on the Tilt.  With the stock ROM, there's a QuickGPS tool that downloads an almanac that makes fixes happen quicker.  I've found that refreshing the almanac (even if it hasn't hit the 7 day expiration) also results in a quick fix being acquired.

Yesterday, I waited about 10 minutes with no response. If there was an indicator that data was actually getting read, it might be useful.

That would be nice, but on WinMo, the gpsAPI hides all of that from the program.  If you're running an NMEA GPS, then you can Enables / View Logs / NMEA and enable it to see what's going on.

 
In the satellite field there is N/A that is displayed when there is NoFIX. If the N/A could be the GPS sentence or something at least that changes, like cycling between the dash, stroke, bar and backstroke. Just a thought.

See above.


 
This is all very cool! Thanks Lynn!!!

Con gusto (having recently returned from Spain).  I'm glad you're finding it all useful.

-13 is your Tilt, isn't it?  The GPS in that device isn't the world's best and it sometimes latches onto a few satellites and goes drifting away from where you really are.  I've found the most reliable way to get it "back on track" is to disable it, wait 5 minutes, and re-enable it.  In nearly every case, it has latched onto just one or two satellites and is ignoring other input to the contrary.

It doesn't happen very often, but some satellite constellations seem to give it more grief than others.

PS.  You're unfortunate to not live on a peninsula.  When mine drifts, it tends to put me out in the ocean or gulf somewhere, so it's more obvious that it must not be real.
