Very nice and thanks for the quick response. aprs.fi likes it much
better now.

May I ask, out of professional curiosity, what you're using to do this?

Eventually it will hopefully be possible to code such a thing (access
web page, parse HTML, scrape out interesting data, format APRS object
packets, inject into APRS-IS) with a Lua script and execute it directly
inside an APRSIS32 instance, but that's a fair distance in the future yet.

Re: WIFI (only) access device?

Rob Giuliano
 

I agree with the analysis, but would recommend looking at various mobile devices (rather than specifcially Windows Mobile - although you won't get APRSISce on some).
 
Almost every mobile device (phone tablet, etc) comes cheap with contract, but has a non-contract version.  Some devices (Ipod Touch, Samsung Galaxty S, etc) have MP3 version with WIFI (but without the phone capability and sometimes other functions removed) at a cheaper price. 
 
Then, as Greg D mentions, you get larger in size and of course more options.
 
If you are willing to go the used market, then almost all of these items are available on e-bay in some form.  Just watch for features you want.  I say that because the Samsung Galaxy S MP3 version may be removing the GPS in future models.

Hi Bob,

First thing I'd ask is what size display you want.  If it can be something small, a Windows Mobile 5/6/6.5 phone can run Lynn's APRSISCE on wi-fi only, and they're pretty cheap these days on eBay.  I wouldn't try running aprs.fi on one, unless you get one of the more modern ones.  My hw6945 iPAQ is vintage 2006, and while it runs Lynn's software just fine, the web browsing experience is less than stellar.

Next bigger is a small netbook, which usually come with Wi-Fi built in.  Any of these should have plenty of horsepower for the web viewers, and you can run all the usual laptop apps as well, but generally one at a time...

Next bigger is a laptop.  An older laptop is going to be more than ample, but a downside of buying an older (used) netbook or laptop is that the battery is likely to be shot or weak, and buying a new one, if you can find one, is going to be expensive.  Same problem for phone batteries, but they're not nearly as expensive.

Another advantage of the WinMo phones is that you can stick them in your pocket, and if you do eventually succumb to the dark side and get a phone+data plan (with the right carrier), you can pop the SIM into the slot and off you go.  T-Mobile had a special plan last summer for unlimited data for $10/mo, so I went for it.  Granted, anything above 200mb is rate limited to Edge speeds, but the phone already does that for me :-)  (I don't know if it's possible to get a pre-paid SIM and throw it in one of these, but if so, that might fit a short-term need without a contract.)

As mentioned earlier, all the tablets I can think of come with WiFi-only versions, and they come in all sizes.  But they aren't the cheapest way to go unless you get a special deal, and I've had mixed results with aprs.fi on-screen navigation on my HP TouchPad (can't "click" on stations, and it won't pan), so check out compatibility before buying.

Have fun,

Greg  KO6TH

Question about WIFI. How would you answer the question as to how to get the cheapest WIFI device for getting Internet for the traveler (who has no wireless or smartphone plan).

This is someone without any kind of smart phone or wireless device. I saw a DEL and Toshiba net book on sale for about $250, but then there were all these tablets too. Though the tablets seemed to be tied to a particular subscription type wireless system such a blackberry etc.

So what commercial device (without any wireless plan) will give the cheapest display of APRS.FI for example while within range of a WIFI hotspot?

Menus are controlled by Windows.  All menus are single-selection activations.  Sorry, it's the way Windows works.

The View / Chooser contains some of the options but not all and will stay open while you play.

Just wait until I try to do menus under Android phones.... If WinMo 6.5 is any indication, it's not going to be a pretty sight.

NOTE:  I do a lot of actions through Desktop Sharint (within my own network), so this may only be an issue under those circumstances.  I haven't tried direct, but typically, these kinds of things don't change.

Hopefully this is a relatively easy one to answer.
- My base station is an FT-7800 with roof top vertical, T2 and Win 7
64 bit
PC. I use an SSID of KC2NYU-1 for this station. This station is
serving as a
Digi Fill and at the moment the only iGate in the Savannah, GA area.
Under
Configure - Genius - Beacon Settings, I have min set at 20 and Max at
30.

Here is the question:
- when kc2nyu-1 packets appear on the scroller they sometimes do in
pairs of
*Int* and RF and at other times just *Int*. The RF packets appear about
every 30 min but the *Int* packets are more often, sometimes as often as
every 2 minutes but at irregular intervals.
- Do I want kc2nyu-1, the same SSID "going out" in both *Int* and RF??
- How do I does one set or control how often packets are sent via
*Int* ??
It seems that are appearing too frequently now.

Frequency Monitor - Microwave

Fred Hillhouse
 

Hi Lynn,


I figured that since I could, I would. I created a microwave frequency in my
comment [N7FMH-10]. The monitor didn't pop up.

I am not sure how many might actually add these frequencies to their
comments, but it would be nice to have to window pop anyway. I think the
TS-2000 can do 1.2GHz and the Icom ID-1 is capable. If nothing else, it
draws attention to other activities on the bands. Of course people have to
generate the comments.

Thanks!


Best regards,
Fred, N7FMH



From Freqspec.txt (WINLINK OBJECT FORMATS section):

MICROWAVES: Of course FFF.FFFMHz only works to 999.999 MHz, and so
we have defined some letter designations above that. There are two
methods. One, is to simply use GHz as in XXX.XXXGHz. But this is
limited to wideband modes to the nearest MHz. Example is
__1.296GHz for 1296 MHz. But to retain one KHz resolution, we use
this table of alphabetical extensions:

A96.000MHz would be 1296 MHz
B20.000MHz would be 2320 MHz
C01.000MHz would be 2401 MHz
D01.000MHz would be 3401 MHz
E51.000MHz would be 5651 MHz
F60.000MHz would be 5760 MHz
G30.000MHz would be 5830 MHz
H01.000MHz would be 10,101 MHz
I01.000MHz would be 10,201 MHz
J68.000MHz would be 10,368 MHz
K01.000MHz would be 10,401 MHz
L01.000MHz would be 10,501 MHz
M48.000MHz would be 24,048 MHz
N01.000MHz would be 24,101 MHz
O01.000MHz would be 24,201 MHz

- How do I does one set or control how often packets are sent via *Int* ?? It seems that are appearing too frequently now.

Re: Frequency Monitoring / Objects / Kenwood

"Also, there's been one report that auto-offset doesn't happen in an FTM-350
until you nudge off frequency and back onto the received object frequency.
I believe if an explicit offset is included in the information for all
bands, this nudge is not required and the received offset is applied
immediately, but this is only what I've gleaned from reading.

This is true. A Yaesu receiving NO offset data will not apply an offset even
if the radio is set to AutoShift.

Very nice and thanks for the quick response. aprs.fi likes it much
better now.

May I ask, out of professional curiosity, what you're using to do this?

Eventually it will hopefully be possible to code such a thing (access
web page, parse HTML, scrape out interesting data, format APRS object
packets, inject into APRS-IS) with a Lua script and execute it directly
inside an APRSIS32 instance, but that's a fair distance in the future yet.

Re: MIC-E Notifications

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

Menus are "free" and provided by Windows. Dialog boxes require much more effort both during the implementation, maintenance, and translations. I'm doing it as I see the need (like View and Paths), but outside of an initial curiosity, how often do you really think anyone will really be toggling around the Mic-E view sub-options? I decided this one, along with Platforms and Symbols, just isn't worth the effort and overhead.

It's all about where I see the most bang for the developer's buck in the longer-term usage of the client.

I have a custom theme for Windows XP for night mode operation if you are interested. Works great except for the station list on the right that showed white last time I used it. But that has been before Lynn made color changes to the list. I can send it to you if interested.

The maps used by APRSISCE/32 are pre-rendered map tiles from
OpenStreetMap.org. If you can find an alternate tile set rendered
differently, then that will be useful. I believe there's one out there
that is basically 2 or 3 times the size with a simple configuration of a
new tile set.

I don't know about anything that enhances map detail when the map is
touched, but you may experience a briefly larger map when you zoom in as
APRSISCE/32 will stretch a lesser zoom tile to fill the area while the
proper OSM-prerendered tile is being retrieved.

I myself have trouble reading the details on my Tilt2 at times, but
until I get to locally rendering the raw OSM vector data, we're at the
mercy of the tile servers. IMHO, the stretched tile might appear to be
readable, but it really does look ugly if you ever get it to hang around
long enough to study it. I don't really have any plans to make that a
standard approach.

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

PS. Of course, if you've got a spare machine with lots of RAM and
horsepower that you can dedicate to the purpose, you can set up your own
OSM-based tile server and tweak your own rendering rule set. Mine took
3-4 days with 24GB of RAM to populate the database which lives on a 3
spindle RAID set. Once the initial load was done, I was able to
throttle the VM down to 6GB of RAM, but it is still severely disk I/O
limited. The 3 spindles in the RAID set are actually 2TB drives with
just 150GB used on each and they run 100% busy during the updates that I
run every 4 hours. And sometimes it takes more than 4 hours to apply
the updates.

The main OSM servers run their DB on SSDs, but I can't pop the $$$ to
hold 450-600GB on SSD (yet).

You can see the munin graphs of my tile server VM at
http://ldeffenb.dnsalias.net:6360/munin/

If you want to experience a really slow tile server, configure one as
follows:

Server: ldeffenb.dnsalias.net
Port: 6360
URL: /osm/
/sttus: checked

Re: Olympic torch route

Steve or Adrian (YO8RXT),

There's an issue with the Torch2012 object packets' timestamps. the z format is supposed to be ddhhmmz (day hour minute z) and an h format is hhmmssh (hour minute second h). It appears that these packets are being generated as hhmmssz (hour minute second z) which is giving aprs.fi's timestamp checker a few fits. See page 22 of aprs101.pdf for details.
