Re: Using AGW

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

Currently APRSISCE/32 will receive from all ports configured in AGW, but will only transmit on the FIRST configured port.

Also, from http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/port-configuration

The AGW interface only support TCP/IP connections to AGWPE. The TCP Configuration dialog prompts for an IP address or DNS name of the host where AGEPE is executing. Port 8000 is the default for AGW and should not be changed unless you know what you're doing.

And there's a video also on that page describing the port configuration.

I have been trying to interface AGWPE or PRO to aprsis32. Does this
work? I have been using AGW interface to other program such as Winpack,
Outpost, Paclink etc and they work fine.

Can I use the same hardware configuration to operate aprsis32? ie com

Kinda looks like it is only network friendly.

Or am I missing the boat or something...

Is PTT for the radio still using the com port? I have tried that function with no luck.

For those that have no clue what we're talking about, read http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/doc:red-dot and make sure you have Configure / Screen / RedDot checked.  It's only interesting while mobile with a true GPS feed, though.

That's what I did for my D710 for packet mode vs APRS mode, they share the same map directories and NWS files, but the .exe and .xml files are separate.

Glad to hear it. I can completely understand the busy-ness. Like has anyone noticed how long it's been since a new Dev release has gone out? That's a situation I'm hoping to address soon, but I'm also facing the annual end-of-the-year spend-it-or-lose-it budget work acceleration over the next two months.

My question is.

I currently use the software on a mobile broadband connection while I am away from home and would like to know if there is anything that I should know about that need to be changed when I switch to RF for beaconing?
The best thing you can do is toggle on Configure / Beacon / Why and check your raw packets at aprs.fi to see what the transmit reasons are. I personally have been experimenting with a Configure / GeniusBeaconing Heading Change of 180 to effectively disable corner pegging. The default forecast error of 1/10 mile handles it better, in what I'm seeing for an unexpected reason.

The Heading Change detects a turn while it is still going on and beacons part way through. Then the Min Time kicks in and prevents another beacon until you're into the new direction and in the interim, the dead reckoning is going off the turn where there is no road. When the Min Time is finally satisfied, another Heading Change fires and straightens out where you're really heading. Two beacons for any substantial turn.

With Forecast Error, the beacon on the turn doesn't trigger until you're well established on the new route. The "meatball" (as James puts it) will be drifting (or rushing) towards the circle on the opposite side as your turn, but as soon as Forecast Error gets hit, a single beacon corrects the world's view of your position and heading/speed. One beacon per turn. Your path won't "corner peg", but it won't do a double beacon either.

Heading Change is particularly bad for drifty GPSs as well. I'm actually considering changing the default to 180 or even adding a checkbox to disable it which may default to off.

Also, if you do a lot of Stop/Start driving, you might want to uncheck Start/Stop in Configure / GeniusBeaconing. Or increase the MinTime to 30 seconds instead of the default 15. Start/Stop is one of those ideas that seemed good at the time, but again, a reasonably small Forecast Error will catch up with it soon enough for an outside observer to have a pretty good idea as to where you actually are and where you're headed.

Sit down on the couch and pull off your sick Bob... we're going to get
into some tricky math... 8)

Aw heck put those socks back on!

Think of forecast error like this. You're driving at 60 mph due north.
You're set up to send a position report every mile, so once a minute
you'll be making noise. Now, jam on the brakes and come to a stop.
When's your next position report going to happen? You're no longer
zooming along at 60 mph, so it's not going to happen 1 mile down the
road from your last report. However, the program is forecasting your
location due to the last reported speed and direction. Once that
prediction forecast exceeds the threshold, the program will fire off a
position report to let people know that you have stopped. The
prediction threshold is adjustable in the settings.

Same thing goes for making corners, etc... once the predicted location
based on the last reported course and speed gets too far from reality,
a new position report gets fired off. Turn on the meatball and the
circle on the map display, and watch what happens! Once the meatball
rolls off your plate, a new position report is fired off.

Ah, right!  You are correct Fred.  The current Window Position and View settings are not saved if the application is closed while maximized.  I had forgotten that "feature".  Need to get that documented somewhere, or better yet, fix it to at least save the view settings.  I'll have to re-test to see if that behavior is still current.

Regarding item 2, before closing, un-Maximize your window. If the screen is maximized, it starts up in the state you are seeing (View-none). There was some discussion back in June (mid-month) if you wish to see archives.
 
Item 1, I don't think I have read any reports of this before.

Hi all,
I'm going to apologize in advance as this is probably a common problem, but I can find no solutions in the wiki or here.

Recently, with what I thought was no input from me (but could be a setting or settings I inadvertently changed), I have two issues that are popping up.

Every time I start the program, the following two things occur:

1. I am zoomed in on my location (fixed setup without GPS) and asked to transmit to confirm my location. The status shows "Suspended" until I do this.

2. View is consistently set to NONE when I want it set to ALL.

I've racked my brain, checked the wiki and this group as I mentioned, and gone over all the settings I can think of that would cause this, to no avail.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

You could start by following this WIKI entry it probably answers most of your questions, I will edit out the FAST references as those sats no longer function that I am aware of

Subject: [aprsisce] Beaconing the ISS

 

 

Got interested in ISS the past few days and decided to see if I could "Beacon" the ISS or have my signal received and digipeated. I am using a roof top dual band vertical at about 35ft, an FT 7800 dual band radio, Argent T2 and APRSIS Dev ver last updated 10/6/2012. A few minutes before the start of ISS pass at my QTH, tuned radio to the ISS packet freq and 145.825. Then got about 8 min of packet bursts and received a number of stations from the ISS Digi which were Igated at my station. Scanning the messages log, it appears my msg was ACk, but not sure.

My question is - can I and if so, what steps do I take within APRSIS to beacon or send my call, position etc to the ISS??

Tnx and 73 Paul kc2nyu
