Is there an online source for these maps in any format?

If you wonder about the name the maps were originally produce for defence of the country hence Ordinance Survey

http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/about/overview/history.html

 

The Map System uses Grid Squares similar if I recall to the American System. Just with different datums.

I believe I sent Lynn info, pretty sure I have some lua code somewhere for converting to and from GPS co ordinates.

So Lynn could if he wished add grid  square overlays to the OSM maps without too much effort.

He kinda did, but you have to speak "British" to understand his statement.  As I understand it, OS = Ordnance Survey which is some sort of government-sponsored map that can be acquired in various levels of detail.  I'm not aware of any OS maps available in OSM tile format, however.

Eventually I still hope to support the old UI-View method of scanned maps with lat/lon defined for the corners, but haven't made that a priority yet.

Re: APRS maps for UK emergency use?

Ah yes, OS. I remember now.

 

There is a method in which to make your own maps and tile them but it can be challenging. I haven’t relearned how to do it again since my machine crashed. I have to find the various pieces of software I was using at the time.

Re: APRS maps for UK emergency use?

Fred Hillhouse
 

What kind of maps are you looking for? That is a bit rhetorical since I know you are asking what people are using.

 

APRSIS32 will work with the OpenStreetMap tiles. See http://www.openstreetmap.org/ for the default.

 

There are other tiles available. Check out: http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/tile-sets.

 

I know many of these are for the USA but there are options once you define your need.

Hi, All,

 

I'm just getting to grips with APRS again  -  last time I used it there was only DOS software available ....

 

I would particularly like to use it in the future for RAYNET and other voluntary emergency-response applications. Can I pick the brains of those of you in the UK who use APRS in this role regarding mapping?

Re: digipeating

Fred Hillhouse
 

First off, start by reading this:

http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/doc:editing-xml-configuration

 

Next check out:

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

 

Probably the hardest part is determining where to put the digipeater configuration in the XML file. Pay close attention to the location details. Then it is only a matter of copying and pasting one of the blocks of data in the wiki.

 

As an example, this is all you need for a fill-in digipeater:

            WIDE1-1=WIDE1*

 

If you need a WIDE2 digipeater there are a couple of choices.

 

If you really want to get fancy, follow the link to the UIFLOOD page. It will provide a SSn-N ability. This is good if you wish to cover an area like your state. With a bit of imagination you might think of a way to use this for search and rescue.

 

Best regards,

Fred N7FMH

If you changed the icon in APRSISCE/32, the old icon should have gone
away. I think you had two copies running at once though, so the i-gate
copy probably saw the house. The house icon will time out after a
while.

Can you copy the packet into an email message and share it with us?

So did the message show up correctly as stated in the first sentence,
or was it missing pieces as you describe in the second sentence? You
can't have it both ways. Either it was correctly received, or it
wasn't correctly received.

So the message was recognised by the Kenwood as an APRS message.
Was the packet actually an APRS message, or was it a different type of
APRS packet such as a position report?

We are very puzzled by this and wonder if anyone has an idea.
Collectively, we probably have a few million ideas... I can probably
come up with a few thousand specifically related to APRS and your
packet problem, and a couple hundred thousand about things totally
unrelated.

We are assuming that we must be leaving something off the APRS message.
That's a good assumption.

Having studied APRS101 though we can't figure it out. Would anyone have
any ideas.
Still have that offer for a few million ideas on the table from the offer above.

If you were to provide something other than nebulous, vague queries,
we could provide more than just totally useless responses...

What was the callsign-SSID of the station sending the APRS

it to an IGate?

APRS message sent seemingly correctly but not registered on the Kenwood TH D7

derek.elias@btinternet.com <derek.elias@...>
 

Not exactly on APRSISCE but maybe someone has an idea. We have built a transmitter to go into a balloon. We checked the APRS messages from the transmitter by connecting the Kenwood to a pc and used a terminal emulator called Putty.

Then an APRS message was sent from the transmitter to the Kenwood and then via the pc to the emulator. The message showed that up correctly on the emulator program. The message had included position info but this did not show but the call sign and some other descriptive script showed correctly.

So the message was recognised by the Kenwood as an APRS message. However when we disconnected the Kenwood from the pc and again sent the message it would not register as a received message and be stored by the Kenwood. From the sound in the Kenwood though it was clear that some signal was received. We did of course take the Kenwood out of PACKET mode and return it to data mode before trying to receive the message.

We are very puzzled by this and wonder if anyone has an idea. We are assuming that we must be leaving something off the APRS message. Having studied APRS101 though we can't figure it out. Would anyone have any ideas. 73 from Derek

This doesn't seem to have any position data although if I send via beacon and in APRS mode the D7 receives the Kenwood's position.

Feeling rather elated that I at last had some help ( from Lynn_) I had a coffee and went back to the pc and sent another packet from the Yaesu to the Kenwood. Amazingly the Yaesu position came up on the APRSIS screen. But trying it again a few times this minor miracle for me hasn't been repeated and I have no idea what was different about this instance.

Re: Running a Kenwood TH-D72 on a Mobile 6.0 Device

 

I for one have been waiting for such a device ever since Kenwood released
the TH-D72. I think it would be the cat's meow to be able to wirelessly
connect the TH-D72 to a modern phone/player via Bluetooth.
I hope "Earl" makes it to the market...

The only thing better would be a DStar (ID-31 or ?) built into an

I for one have been waiting for such a device ever since Kenwood released the TH-D72.  I think it would be the cat’s meow to be able to wirelessly connect the TH-D72 to a modern phone/player via Bluetooth.  I have the Samsung Galaxy Player 5 and would love to be able to be out in the woods and be able to view a live APRS feed on my Player 5 with no internet connection.  I currently use BackCountry Navigator on my Player 5 which allows me to pre-download photo maps and GPS waypoints and tracks of my area of interest prior to going out into woods.  Now if I was able to use similar pre-loaded maps on my Player 5 with a full fledged mobile APRS program running which is not connected to the internet, I would be in heaven.

 

Yes, Lynn I fully understand that the “real” world takes priority in your son’s future but perhaps there are some others out there that might be willing to work on such a device.  I think there is a market out there if such a device were available.

I keep trying to interest my son, KJ4DXK, in developing a micro-controller USB host to Bluetooth SPP adapter specifically for D72s.  Such a device would allow ANY Bluetooth host to pair to it and access the D72 just as if it were connected to a traditional serial port.  It would take a bit of research to a) Find a micro-controller that supports USB Host and b) Find the appropriate code for that microcontroller to talk to the specific USB/Serial adapter that's inside the D72.

But he's too busy wrapping up his thesis and trying to get out into the "real" world!

Re: digipeating

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

When first encountering a new piece of software with as many diverse features as are contained in APRSISCE/32, I can understand it being termed a "beast".  No offense taken where I'm sure none was intended. 

The digipeating configuration is currently obscure because of the limited audience that actually have cause to do it.  If it were trivial to turn on, then there'd be a lot of needless digipeaters running all over the landscape, IMHO.  That said, when I do get back to working on digipeater configurability, it will be (relatively) easy to turn on digipeating on the station's own callsign-ssid.  I actually use this in KJ4OVQ-9 (a T3-135 in my wife's van) from my D72 when I'm out hiking or biking with it.  Works well, and has the added advantage that I hear the "I've been digipeated" tones from the D72 which confirms that she also sees where I'm at on her Nuvi 1490 (if she forces a map refresh).

If you changed the icon in APRSISCE/32, the old icon should have gone
away. I think you had two copies running at once though, so the i-gate
copy probably saw the house. The house icon will time out after a
while.
