That is the same configuration I use with the Bluetooth linked OT2m in my mobile KJ4ERJ-9 installation.  The GPS port is connected full time to a Nuvi350 for standalone operations.  APRSISCE on my phone has a KISS port that connects via paired bluetooth to the KISS-configured port on the OT2m when I want to do mobile IGating and APRS RF work while mobile.

The commands listed below are no-ops (no operation) since the OT2m doesn't need anything particular to "just work" in KISS.  This is by far the easiest way to run any KISS-capable TNC that will stay in KISS mode across power cycles.  It's always there and talking when APRSISCE/32 needs it.  Unfortunately, the Kenwood TNCs don't have a way to stay in KISS mode across power cycles.

I replaced all of the open and close commands with the ones that I

as long as the T2 is already in KISS mode at the correct baud rate.
The commands I suggested assume that the T2 is in AUTO mode at 9600

I wish I had run across this thread Sunday morning before our balloon launch. I had been using AGWPe to tie multiple radios (a T2-301 and OT2m) into one stream for APRSISCE but realized it had expired about 30 minutes before launch. I was able to get everything running creating 2 KISS ports then manually sending AMODE KISS commands to the T2's, now I just need to play in the xml and try the settings you've found that work.

Ken,

 

I don’t think anyone would say UI-VIEW is a waste of time, if it weren’t for Lynn (and APRSIS32) it would still be the mainstay of the APRS community. It is a good (maybe even great) APRS client, and up until APRSIS32 was what I used 90% of the time (10% xAstir).

Re: Application Configuration Startup Question

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

APRSIS32 looks for and uses the configuration file in the default directory. Simply make a directory for each configuration with a local copy of the APRSIS32.EXE and it will be self-contained. Or you can create different directories specified as the "Start In" directory specified in multiple shortcuts to a single shared APRSIS32.EXE instance. Different instances can safely share a single copy of the cached OSMTiles as well.

APRSISCE, on the other hand, forces the configuration file into "My Documents" on your phone, so it currently on supports a single active configuration.

Lynn (D) - KJ4ERJ - Author of APRSISCE for Windows Mobile and Win32

PS. I routinely run 3 to 5 instances feeding from a single full feed instance offering a local server port. All I did was provide a directory for each instance and a shortcut to the APRSIS32.EXE file specifying the unique folder in which to run the instance.

There are still thousands of people world-wide using UI-View32.
It is really the "gold standard" in APRS clients. I searched the recent
messages and couldn't see where anyone had said that using UI-View
was a waste of time. Both APRS clients should fill your needs.
However, APRSISCE is in active development and Lynn is very
responsive and improving it all of the time. It is a capable APRS
client already, and the user-interface and ease of use will just keep
getting better.

You mentioned in an earlier message that you were using a Kantronics
9612. Do you have both ports configured in APRSISCE and connected
to it, or just one? On the other hand, do you have a single port TNC that
you could use for now for testing? Even if you need two ports later, it
might help with troubleshooting. Whatever TNC you decide to use, it
should work connected to a terminal program. If you can't communicate
with it like that, it won't work any better connected to an APRS client.

Software Carrier Detect is completely up to the TNC. APRSISCE/32 simply
delivers packets to be transmitted whenever it feels the need to
transmit. When the radio is actually keyed and modulated is up to the
TNC and way beyond the control of APRSISCE/32.

You can bring up Enables / View Logs / Transmit and click Enable on the
menu to see when packets are generated and whether they are for IS, RF,

Re: New user, many questions

Now, my questions may seem basic to you experienced users. If this
has all been covered before, be merciful in your punishment and just
direct me to the appropriate threads.
Aha... fresh meat! (Hi Bob! I tried to get a free ride to Dayton, but
missed the boat... booooooo!)

1. In UI-View, I can select multiple stations to "track". The cool
aspect of this feature is that as tracked stations move about, the
map (Precision Mapping with the PMapServer) will zoom and re-center
to keep the tracked stations in view. Can APRSIS/32 do the same
thing? I couldn't figure out how to track more than one station at a time.
You won't be able to track two stations on one map (yet). Lynn has a
feature called multi-track which allows you to track multiple targets,
but each tracked target will be in a new window. That window will stay
centered on the tracked station if desired, at the selected zoom
level. I don't remember if Lynn has an auto-zoom display to track
multiple stations on one map on his to-do list, or if it has been
mentioned yet.

2. I really like the idea of using APRSIS/32 with my Kenwood TM-D710
in APRS mode. Thanks to James Ewen for pointing this out in another
forum. I used the standard KWD710(APRS) port configuration, but I
wasn't real sure who was doing the beaconing. Was the D710 beaconing
using the parameters configured in the radio's APRS menus? Or was
APRSIS/32 triggering the beaconing?
That's my biggest issue with the way it works currently. Lynn has it
so that APRSISCE/32 is trying to control the D710 while using this
mode. When you start up APRSISCE/32 the <OpenCommands> shut down the
D710 beaconing, overwrite the callsign, and change various other
settings to assume control. You can of course have APRSISCE/32 running
with the port open, and connect into the D710, which will leave the
D710 in control, and APRSISCE/32 will see the packets quite fine.

If you run two different SSIDs as Lynn espouses you will end up with
multiple stations bouncing around as the Kenwood/APRSISCE/32 jostle
for control. If you bump power on the radio (start the vehicle or
such), the Kenwood will end up back in control, until APRSISCE/32
sends th next <OpenCommand> sequence for whatever reason.

You can see this happening from my journey this morning while chasing
a balloon... You need to track VE6SRV and VE6SRV-9 to get the whole
picture of where I went. Makes for a messy map.

http://aprs.fi/?call=VE6SRV%2Cve6srv-9&dt=1309046400&mt=roadmap&z=11&timerange=86400

If you run a single callsign in both the D710 and APRSISCE/32 then a
single track is left behind, and the way you can tell who's running
the show is by looking at the type of packet sent, icon, comment, or
whatever.

I haven't fiddled enough with the commands sent to the port to remove
all of the usurping control stuff... Just thinking about it, you could
probably just wipe out all the open and close commands and it should
work, since dropping the program with the port enabled onto a running
radio works fine.

3. This question may be related to #2. When using a tactical callsign
with the APRSIS/32-Kenwood TM-D710 combo, where do you set the
callsign? In the radio or the program?
I've seen Lynn's reply now, so I'll abbreviate the rest of the
responses rather than duplicate.

What do you want do as far as tactical callsigns? Do you want to send
out your station using a tactical call? You should be able to set your
station call to whatever you want as long as it fits within the AX.25
constraints, and then put your real callsign into the comment that you
send. If you just want to assign a tactical callsign to stations on
your display, then look at Screen | Labels | Nicknames

4. This question may also be related to #2. I know that some
programs, notably APRSpoint, can read the GPS strings that the
Kenwoods send out on their serial port (the same serial port used to
communicate with the TNC). Is it possible for APRSIS/32 to do this so
I can eliminate one of the connections to the computer?
APRSISCE/32 does grab the GPS strings from the D710 and parses them to
determine what is the current location. Not sure why you are running
another GPS to feed location information to the program. When you are
running in APRS mode on the D710, you won't get GPS satellite
information displays on screen such as the number of satellites seen,
since that information is not provided in the Kenwood Position
sentences.

Are you looking for an additional GPS feed through port as well
though? UI-View is able to grab the GPS data from the Kenwood, use it
internally, and then also feed the GPS data to a virtual serial port
internally. This allows other programs to access the location
information provided by the Kenwood without having to have a second
GPS feeding position information to the computer. UI-View goes the
extra step to translate the proprietary Kenwood sentences into $GPRMC
(I think) style so that the other programs say a "regular" NMEA
string.

6. The program builds a list of recently-received stations on the
left side of the screen, but it scrolls off the top. Is there away to
go back through the history of received stations to find one that
might have scrolled off?
The best you can do here is to turn on packet logging. Use Enables |
Logging | Packets to grab all packets heard and keep them in a log
file. You can scroll back through that to try and find the packets of
interest.

7. Is there a terminal monitor screen so you can see the raw APRS traffic?
See above... Like Lynn says, there are a number of ways to capture the data.

All in all, I'm very impressed with this program. I do have some
general user interface issues and I do have to learn the APRSIS/32
equivalent of various UI-View commands. But I think this program has
great potential and I thank Lynn for developing it.
We're all working with Lynn to develop the program into the most
robust APRS program ever developed. Lynn has been extremely responsive
to user input, and I'm sure he'll welcome any input from you just as
he does from the rest of us.

If you've read through the archives, you'll know that Lynn is
unwilling to run any other APRS programs to see how they work. We have
to explain the desired operation in enough detail in order to get the
concept across. If Lynn sees the utility of such a concept, he may
implement it. If enough of us whining users make enough noise, he may
implement the concept just to keep us happy even if he sees no utility
in the concept. (Kind of like stopping for ice cream just to shut the
kids up on a long car trip)

It can take quite a bit of time and effort to be able to explain the
desired operation in enough detail to get across the idea, but it also
sometimes brings a new and improved way of implementing the concept
when it gets added into the program.

Things like a historical list of stations is on the wish list for a
number of us, but Lynn hasn't caught on to that concept yet. When you
listen into the communication here long enough, you'll find that (at
least in my opinion), Lynn is very visually based as far as APRS is
concerned. He likes to look at the map display and see where
everything is. If he wants to add an object, he just zooms in on the
desired location, and clicks where it should go. There are a bunch of
other users who are numerically based... they want to enter a lat/long
into a dialog, and then look around to see where the object is
located. Lynn is working on creating the numerical entry dialog as a
future update.

Of course there are also things that Lynn does that are off the other
end of the scale for me. Try left clicking on an icon, and the click
on the station callsign/name on the top line of that window. You'll
get a lot of information there, including a whole raft of numbers for
stats on how many packets heard over X amount of time or something...

There's some stuff that I still can't keep my head wrapped around...
All the colours in the scrolling station list still has me baffled. I
just about need to have a cheat sheet printed out so that I can
reference it to make heads or tails out of what it is that I am
seeing.

We task Lynn pretty hard with a lot of the features we want to see,
but he tasks us pretty hard trying to keep up with understanding all
the features he has available!

We've got a willing programmer that listens to user input and makes
changes based on that input. Keep playing with the program, and
putting in requests for new features, or asking about how to use the
current features.

When I tried Lynn's suggestions and the APRSIS wiki suggestions for the T2, I could not get the program to connect to the T2. I suspect that I did not have the T2 configured correctly to start with. After some experimentation, I came up with the following commands for a T2-135 which is very similar to the OT2.

<OpenCmd>^003^003^003~</OpenCmd>
<OpenCmd>INT 0</OpenCmd>
<OpenCmd>WAY OFF</OpenCmd>
<OpenCmd>AMODE KISS</OpenCmd>
<CloseCmd>^003^003^003~</CloseCmd>

The open commands were derived from reading the Tracker 2 wiki's suggestions for using UI-View with the T2 in KISS mode. Start out using OTWinCfg to set the T2's ports to 9600 baud and automatic protocol detection. The first series of Ctrl-C's gets the T2's attention, then you tell it to not beacon, then you tell it to not send GPS waypoints back to the computer, then you tell the A port to go into KISS mode.

Thank you for providing the details!  But you didn't mention the D710 that comes up down below.

APRSISCE/32 doesn't currently have the ability to keep multiple stations in view on a single screen.  But it has MultiTrack.  Click on a station you want to track and select MultiTrack from the popup menu.  A new window will open with the selected station in the center which will then move as that station moves.  You can open up to 16 (I think) MultiTrack windows each tracking a different station around the planet.

2. I really like the idea of using APRSIS/32 with my Kenwood TM-D710 
in APRS mode. Thanks to James Ewen for pointing this out in another

wasn't real sure who was doing the beaconing. Was the D710 beaconing 
using the parameters configured in the radio's APRS menus? Or was 
APRSIS/32 triggering the beaconing?

Both.  That's the whole point of the (APRS) mode.  It keeps the D710 doing it's own thing and interrupts the flow when APRSISCE/32 has something to say.  It uses non-documented (by Kenwood) commands to force mode switches.  Since Kenwood didn't foresee this usage, it is a bit clunky (IMHO) and time consuming.  As James says, there's a tug-of-war about who is in control, the D710 or APRSISCE/32.

3. This question may be related to #2. When using a tactical callsign 
with the APRSIS/32-Kenwood TM-D710 combo, where do you set the 
callsign? In the radio or the program?

APRSISCE/32 doesn't support tactical callsigns, at least, not in the APRS-IS interface.  What you put in Configure / General / MyCall-ssid is what is used in all packets (RF and APRS-IS) as well as the APRS-IS server logon.

4. This question may also be related to #2. I know that some 
programs, notably APRSpoint, can read the GPS strings that the 
Kenwoods send out on their serial port (the same serial port used to 
communicate with the TNC). Is it possible for APRSIS/32 to do this so 
I can eliminate one of the connections to the computer?

I have code in APRSISCE/32 to detect and parse these Kenwood GPS strings, but did not do extensive testing with it being a non-D710 owner.  I've recently acquired a D700 and was hoping that it had this capability, but have not yet seen it happen as yet.  And I think I may have shorted out my NMEA serial GPS in the rush of putting a field day station together.  ug.  If you simply don't configure an NMEA GPS and hook up the D710 see if your station starts moving as you go mobile.  I'm not sure what trace log will show the activity even.

5. I see that APRSIS/32 can read UI-View overlay files (.POS). Nice 
feature. Is there a way to draw lines on the maps? For instance, 
could I draw the route of a marathon on the map so I can see it on my 
ARPS screen?

APRSISCE/32 supports the drawing objects of the APRS spec.  Right click at one end of the line (the bottom, or southern-most end), select the coordinates, then select Create Shape HERE, then Line Down/Left or Down/Right depending on which diagonal you want (I didn't write the spec, sorry).  The line will actually go UP from the selected coordinate in the OPPOSITE direction as what you select because the coordinate of the object is actually the lower end, but the spec has some strange description of the line type.

Hello APRS Hams, I set up the APRSISCE on a laptop I have and registered the software. I can see other nodes on my screen, but I may need some setup assistance. Rather than boring everyone here, is there a knowledgable person who may like to spend some time with me on the phone and with Remote access to my PC to look at how it is set up?

The big picture here is I have a Kantronics KPC2 in Kiss mode. This may be my problem, I am not sure, but it seems I cannot transmit through the TNC. I can stop the software and talk to the TNC with a terminal emulator, so I know all of that is set up correctly.

Let me know if you are interested and able to help. I can call you, and I will set up remote access with VNC. All you need is a PC with JAVA installed.

Thanks, Fred Juch N5JXO 512-970-8892Cell or 512-310-2700Home

Looking as though they'll fly over Croatia, B&H, Montenegro, Macedonia and Greece although they've slowed significantly and lost some altitude.
