Re: Prefetch

I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I was considering opening 3-5 multi track windows to 'drive' a track all together to cover the zoom levels I want.

I know there is some concern about overloading the servers and getting Lynn in trouble for downloading too much to fast.

Subject: [aprsisce] Prefetch

 

Hi Lynn,

When and if you ever get back to the Prefetch routines I was thinking of an option that might be useful.

Currently, if you "drive" a file, the only tiles fetched are those needed to fill the current display. So in the case of my monitor, that is 5 x 7 for 35 tiles. If I Prefetch an area, it is then 2975 if all four levels are available.

Here is the option, if while driving, we could do a Prefetch but only the 35 tiles at each 4 levels. That is now only 140 tiles; less the 5% of the Prefetch total. This is actually equivalent to "driving" each of the four levels.

An additional extra might be to take the 5 x 7 and allow 2 extra for 7 x 9 at the higher levels. This allows the station to move off the track some distance before moving off a quality tile (a tile not zoomed on).

For a "drive" prefetching 5x7 and 7x9 for the next 3 higher levels, each position would then be 221 tiles. It would fetch much less tiles compared to if someone prefetched along a track.

Just thinking about this as I Prefetch along a daily route and my typical route to the White Mountains.

Best regards,
Fred, N7FMH

Re: Trouble with OT-USB

Rob Giuliano
 

The missing [C0] means APRSIS32 is expecting the OT-USB to be in KISS mode, but it appears you are taking it out of KISS mode with your OPEN commands.  Both seem to be the same issue - not in KISS mode, but APRSIS32 thinks it should be.
 
What type of port did you setup in APRSIS32 for the OT-USB?
  It doesn't appear to be simple KISS because you have OPEN statements being sent to the TNC.
 
I suggest looking through the OT-USB manual and finding how to configure it up in KISS mode.
Then delete the current OT-USB port in APRSIS32 and create a new one with SIMPLE KISS (if the OT-USB stays in KISS mode when set that way).

If you're asking to filter it from the display, there's not an easy way to do that.

If you're asking to block it from showing up in the packet scroller, use Configure / Scroller / Filter and put in "b/* -b/KJ4GGV*".  The first says to bring in all packets (the default for a blank filter) and the second term blocks all packets source from KJ4GGV.  This only affects the packet scroller which is what your screen shot was showing me.



There's other filter terms that can be used to different effects as well (like -e/KJ4GGV-S which will block just the DSTAR-introduced packets), but the -b/... is by far the simplest.

Use View / Shrieks in conjunction with Nicknames for the stations you wish to see.

From http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/menu:view

Shrieks (formerly SkyWarn)
APRSISCE/32 parses any !! from comments and groups (up to 32 of) them into a View / Shrieks submenu. This allows event coordinators to pick a suitable !EVENT! for stations to put in their beacon comment to provide easy on-screen filtering of only the stations participating in the event. The Spotter Network requires their users to put !SN! in their comment, so you can expect to see !SN! in the View / Shrieks menu if any such stations are in your range.

!Shriek!s are also parsed from nickname comments EVEN if the nickname or comment is not enabled! This allows you to nickname your favorite stations with a !WATCHME! comment and then View / Shrieks / !WATCHME! to see ONLY those stations! You could even nickname stations as !VIEW1!, !VIEW2!, !VIEW3!, and so forth to build your own local MultiTrack views of specific stations. A single station can even have multiple !VIEWn! tags in the comment to put them on multiple views.

If nicknames are enabled, and a station has a nickname, and that nickname overrides the comment, then ONLY the comment's Shrieks are used. The comment received from the station will be ignored completely for Shriek purposes. After these conditions are no longer met, a new packet from the station must be received to get a proper !Shriek! for the station.

(So, why "Shriek"? Search for Shriek at Wikipedia)

Our testing activity yesterday was a huge success and preparation for the bike event on 4/6. This was my first major use of the APRSISCE (beyond just playing at home) and the program performed beautifully.

I've been watching the recent thread about filtering units. I have what I think is a slightly different requirement. I want to only allow units with the call of k6arc* to be displayed. I don't want to see any of the other mobiles and digis out there. I did add a 'b' filter, but I either did it wrong or it doesn't do what I want. How do I accomplish this task?

I would like to know how keep the digis displayed on the screen. They are sending objects, like this...

Am I remembering there is a time value in these beacons that influences how long they appear? If so, that would be the zeros, which I'd bet would cause them to vanish from my display almost right away. Is that indeed so?

I think that's enough questions for now.

Hello Every Body,

I just saw a nice Chineese You Tube Radio direction finding
movie from

I hope Lynn will fix soon the error in APRSIS32
in CSE/SPD/HDG/NRQ in the heading.

Greetings


Re: Fw: How to block or filter objects from a certain call

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

If you're asking to filter it from the display, there's not an easy way to do that.

If you're asking to block it from showing up in the packet scroller, use Configure / Scroller / Filter and put in "b/* -b/KJ4GGV*".  The first says to bring in all packets (the default for a blank filter) and the second term blocks all packets source from KJ4GGV.  This only affects the packet scroller which is what your screen shot was showing me.



There's other filter terms that can be used to different effects as well (like -e/KJ4GGV-S which will block just the DSTAR-introduced packets), but the -b/... is by far the simplest.

PS.  I did see your earlier e-mail, but wasn't in a good position to answer it at the time and then it migrated too far back in my inbox.  Sorry about that delay!

Lynn- not sure if this is the same subject but in the attached screen shot, see the repeated packets from KJ4GGV- A, AD, B, C. I believe this is a DSTAR station/repeater. I really don't need to see this over and over, can I filter out? Sending direct so you can see attached.

Re: Object Question

chuckbland <BackForty@...>
 

Our testing activity yesterday was a huge success and preparation for the bike event on 4/6. This was my first major use of the APRSISCE (beyond just playing at home) and the program performed beautifully.

I've been watching the recent thread about filtering units. I have what I think is a slightly different requirement. I want to only allow units with the call of k6arc* to be displayed. I don't want to see any of the other mobiles and digis out there. I did add a 'b' filter, but I either did it wrong or it doesn't do what I want. How do I accomplish this task?

I would like to know how keep the digis displayed on the screen. They are sending objects, like this...

/000000h3814.82N/12048.33W#

Am I remembering there is a time value in these beacons that influences how long they appear? If so, that would be the zeros, which I'd bet would cause them to vanish from my display almost right away. Is that indeed so?

I think that's enough questions for now.

All the digis have new beacons that contain the coords. They are showing-up nicely on the map and the paths are working.

I'll update again after test day.

I want to mark them on my APRSIS map so that the path display will be able to use them.

Do I add the digis as objects, using their callsign as the object ID, or am I using the wrong method?

I agree and I've mentioned it in this group before. That led to a
discussion of virtual serial ports, but Lynn had hotter irons in the
fire at the time.

The problem I have is that while mobile, I run both APRSIS/32 to
interact with the APRS world through a Kenwood TM-D710 and I run a
mapping program (Delorme TopoUSA). I have a GPSr connected to the
D710 and the D710 is connected to a laptop computer. Lynn's fine
program can read the GPS sentences coming through the D710 so it
knows where it is. But, TopoUSA is in the dark. My current solution
is to split the data line coming from the GPSr--one side goes to the
D710 and the other side goes to a serial port and eventually to the computer.

But, if APRSIS/32 could pass the GPS sentences out to a virtual
serial port in the Windows OS, I could eliminate having to
electrically split the GPS data.

Try this again

Ron N9SZV <n9szv@...>
 

I use a program called Zello http://zello.com/home/ it's free Walkie-talkie type App for your phone or PC and have created a channel called APRS 144.390 MHz, I Also use it for Skywarn too.. I thought it would be a great way to talk and help each other on Lynn's APRS program. please download and join the channel if you want been running it for a few months with out any problems....If this is something If I should not of posted it here the Moderator can delete it...

Thanks,

Re: May I have a passcode for APRSISCE?

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

It most likely won't work on Windows Phone 8 as that requires signed code. And I suspect it also only supports C-sharp development and not native C and the Win32API. Passcode sent under separate cover.
