Re: GPS units

Those wanting to try GPSD or even my NTP server can do, the IP address is 91.84.215.75 it’s a static address.

Obviously only for testing as GPSD will give my location, and you would be better of using a proper time server.

My NTP system is really to try and get a reasonable time on a non internet connected system, such as Field day.

If you are attaching a GPS to a pi you might as well do as much as possible with it.

 

As you can see PPS jitter is good GPS time data not so good. Obviously a bit of work to do. For comparison I am linked to a UK ntp pool hence the other info.

The GPS is not designed for time reference but does have a PPS output.

 

 

Lynn is you want to connect to GPSD for testing please do it should be running 24/7 APRSIS32 uses it just fine

I need to test in a better way to be absolutely sure. And I will port
forward my router so people can see for themselves.
My current setup provides GPS location to any device or software capable of
receiving location and time data from a GPSD system. APRSIS32 is capable of
that.
NTP time for access from any device. Using the PPS in kernel mode rather
than user mode.
Also a samba install to allow monitoring from a windows pc.
And SNMP for remote monitoring as this is intended as a headless system.

Currently showing a bit of jitter on the GPS time as expected, but zero
jitter on the PPS.

I can create an image of the SD card. And torrent if people are interested.

I was driving the PPS with the PPS output from a Trimble Thunderbolt

occasionally strips out some Oscillator clock pulses for some reason,
and I suspect that may be the cause.

More later - have to go to an appointment.

If you searched the mailing list archives for the terms you see in the

Put the T2 in KISS mode and it will most likely work.

Since you didn't provide enough information about the error in the

It should look something like this:

No Tx with APRSIS & FT7800

eckerpw@...
 

In the past I have been using APRSIS on my win 7 64 bit PC, an Argent T2 and an FT7800. This lash up ran fine for about two years or so. Then recently had a PC Hard Drive crash and I am having to start all over re-installing and configuring programs; and I can’t get APRSIS to transmit. I did the setup so long ago, I honestly don’t remember how I got it all to work. So I need some help from anyone that has a somewhat similar setup.

-        Again PC is win 7 64 bit, 2.4 ghz processor, 4 gb ram and solid state hard drive.

-        T2 is connected to the FT7800 via a DIN plug; TNC is connected to PC via a serial cable

-        PC seems to be communicating with FT7800 via OTwincfg software.

-        I configured a new port for the ft7800.  I am getting APRSIS-OK and FT7800 OK in the window just above the scroller.

-        Program is displaying stations received via Rf and the green rx light on the T2 is flashing.

-        I did review the two G4ILO videos on re-installing the program and getting it to communicate with your radio. I have looked thru the Wiki for applicable sections to help me, went thru the steps in “Why won’t APRSIS /32 Transmist” in the wiki. All is fine there.

-        Did a search through the archives and nothing jumped out at me to help. I enabled logging on the FT7800 port but am not bright enough to interpret it, there are a bunch of entries starting with KISS: not long enough and MISSING 0

 

So would like to hook up with someone who has a similar setup and we could compare notes on configuration.

 

Thanks & 73

Well my experience With the adafruit breakout GPS module has been good. Took it a couple of minutes from cold start, to work out where it was, that from new.

It does much the same after a power cycle, I have no battery attached to it

Will run from 3.3 or 5V  serial output is 3.3V so you might need to use an interface if using TTL levels.

 

Obviously I am using it for my RPI projects, but it’s good to feed other things with a bit of interface work.

It looks like you are sending messages. You do understand that only
specific stations will respond to specific queries... W8JES is
probably running UI-InfoKiosk, and add on to UI-View that responds to
specific queries sent to the station by providing information back.

APRSISCE/32 has a similar capability called QRU (Have you anything for me?)

http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/doc:qru

Only APRSISCE/32 stations with QRU information configured by the
operator will provide QRU information back.

There are some generic queries that some APRS programs respond to...
not all programs support the same responses though. Dumb trackers
won't respond to anything, and maybe some of the integrated APRS
radios will respond to some as well.

http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/doc:queries

BTW, the queries have to be sent perfectly...

/?SFINFO isn't going to work for W8JES, we know that from before...
get rid of the slash.

W8HHF hasn't been on the air for over 200 days, so you're not going to
get a response from that station.

/h is not a valid query for W8JES, so there's going to be no response
to that message either.

That last sentence is wrong.   Windows 7 and 8 quite like software being installed in Program Files. That is the proper location for software.  The problem is that much amateur radio software does not like being installed there because the authors insist on putting all the settings files in the same folder as the software or subfolders.  This is now DOS software behaved by default.   This is also directly against the Microsoft standards which have been present since Windows NT 4.0 if not earlier.  The various settings files and downloadable files such as the mapping tiles should be placed in the users Applications Data folder.   Now what happened in Windows 7 is that Microsoft has been tightening up  how things work.

Maybe an update to the wiki is in order. Put the file outside the program
files folder. And Make sure you uncompressed the file.
As Greg says
The windows protection system is more of a pain than a help.
It does not stop viri but makes it a pain for users installing non approved

Subject: [aprsisce] Help with Win 7 instalation

 




I installed aprisce on my Dell NetBook with Win 7 but when I try to run it,
the little screen where you put in your callsign, etc comes up. When I press
the button to run all it does is flash and freeze the screen. I have to use
ctrl-alt-delete to do anything else.
 
Any ideas?
 
Somebody told me to use ubungtu but with a little ADD and after having a
stroke I don't do well programing & stuff reguiring a lot of short-term
memory. Being a senior doesing help much either even tho i've done
electronics all my adult life. Oh yeah, add in tremors which cause me to add
extra letters.
 
So basically, i'm asking for a windows based solution. I was going to use my
Vista laptop which it runs great on in the car until the backlight went out.

Steve's got it.  Check Configure / Ports / 's checkboxes.

Also, for the first set of retries, APRSISCE/32 will only send out via RF if the message destination station has been recently heard on RF.  The second set of retries goes out all suitably-enabled ports.

You can check the Transmit and Port(YourPortName) trace logs (enable them first) to see what's actually going out where.

As Greg said, the APRS-IS passcode is only to validate your packets
when sent to the APRS-IS servers. It has no bearing on RF
transmissions. It is assumed that you are legally allowed on the air
when you put a station on the air.

> The W8HHF station is our local repeater for the APRS, D-Star etc.

That really has no bearing on getting your station operational, other
than you might hear a digipeat coming back from the digipeater when
you send packets.

> My home station and callsign is KD8BIN.

Always a very important piece of information when asking for help. By
providing the EXACT CALLSIGN-SSID, it allows the rest of us to look
for any evidence of how your specific station may or may not be
operating.

> So, after i get the passcode, I will see if I have luck sending messages....

You might, but that would be because the message is going out to the
APRS-IS, and then gets gated back to RF and delivered to the desired
station.

There's something else going on here... It looks like your station is
on the air, and is sending packets out via RF.

I just sent your station a query, and got a response back. I sent a
message and got an ACK back, but both via APRS-IS only.

In the middle of a chat with you on APRSISCE/32 currently, but the RF
ONLY section doesn't seem to be working.

Lynn, what can be disabled to make RF messaging stop working, yet
position reports still go out over RF?

That was it... I forget about those switches!

Have you unzipped the file to somewhere other than under program files? Win 7/8 doesn't like stuff installed under there. And if you try to run it from the zip file it will not work correctly.
