Please see:

http://ldeffenb.dnsalias.net:3000/catchall?FormName=RealMain&CellCount=10&MinutesPerCell=10&RfOnly=1&GateID=W0ARP

and particularly:

http://ldeffenb.dnsalias.net:3000/catchall?FormName=RFTRAFFIC&Action=Display&IGates=W0ARP

Yes, you do see spikes in RF received traffic forwarded to the APRS-IS.

You can also right click on the APRS-IS OK pane and select your RF port from the popup menu.  It should give you a window like the one below:



The first line (I:  O:   ) is the most recent hour's inbound and outbound packet counts.
The Rcv: line is the total packet count per hour over the past 8 hours with the current hour listed first.

The t/??? lines show the same 8 hours most recent first for the various type-filterable packets.

List: shows the current "DX" list by decreasing distance and increasing time.  The top of this list is the most recently declared "DX" station along with distance and bearing.

The Hrly: shows the most recent 8 hours DX stations by clock hour.  I find this handy to see if RF openings have opened and closed as you can see my station observed in the 08:00 hour this morning directly copying KG4YZY-11 from across the state.  That's a far distance when you consider the flatness of Florida.

PS.  Yes, if you're running an APRSISCE/32 IGate, you can substitute your station's callsign-SSID into the above URLs to see your own station's traffic information.

Please detail what you mean by "forwarded packets"?  Is that from RF to -IS or from -IS to RF?

What do you have your range set to?

What additional filters do you have set?

What MultiTracks might you have open (these set an automatic buddy or friend filter)?

Are you really running W0ARP-0?  Typical practice is to only specify the base callsign of W0ARP since the -0 is implied by that.

Look at the last table on that page, it will tell you which stations
are being forwarded to the APRS-IS via your APRSISCE/32 i-gate. All
traffic being gated from RF to the APRS-IS stream is coming from the
RF channel in your local area.

You can see a total of what you are hearing in APRSISCE/32 by looking
at your gated and not-gated logs.

The reason you saw a sudden increase is probably because another
i-gate in your area went off-line, or their internet connection slowed
down to where it was delivering packets to the APRS-IS slower than
your system.

I was hoping to just look at the app remotely, I have a lot of other activity running on that screen and from inside my home remote desktop would do it but from somewhere else there isn't enough bandwidth to handle it. Also The mouse wheel action is kind of slow locally, I can't imagine how bad it would be over a remote desktop connection.
But thanks

If you install TeamViewer (free for non-commercial) on both machines, you can connect from anywhere and view it. I use it all the time to monitor several PCs. I have also passed files between when needed.

It is a great way to provide support as well. It can even be used to help support PC issues. I can connect from my smartphone as well. I connect to 5 different machines during the day.

 

There are 2 passwords. The first is random for each time the TeamViewer instance is started. You will see it on the opening screen. That is one you would share, along with the Partner ID, if you are looking for support. I set mine to the maximum number of characters. The second password is one you set for you to access on a regular basis. It is in the “Extras” tab. If you setup “My Computers” then a double connects you to the selected PC.

 

There may be other ways but TeamViewer is extremely simple.

 

Best regards,

Fred N7FMH

Re: VIEW ALL becoming VIEW NONE

Cool idea. It was the end of the day after a road trip. I just wanted to capture the GPX before I shut down so I could use it to fetch missing tiles. That was accomplished this AM without incident.

The VIEW ALL becoming VIEW NONE was apparently caused by me missing a RESTORE before shut down. I've done several power cycles *with* RESTORE without incident. I it would seem that the malfunction is with the nut holding the tablet.

Hi again Lynn,
I just had another thought. Do I have to power cycle to save the GPX? I had not done that when I was trying to drive it to fetch the tiles I was missing on the trip.

Re: VIEW ALL becoming VIEW NONE

Hi Lynn,
Minimized is probably the wrong word. I use full screen on the little WinBook 7" tablet. Before shut down I click the button in the middle between the - and the X IIRC that is necessary to keep settings across power cycles (wasn't sure of it's name). I leave the AUTOSAVE GPX toggled on all the time. If I find that I don't have tiles when on a road trip, I load and drive the latest GPX to "post fetch" them, when I get home and have internet again (no internet on the road for me). I had just succeeded in getting "G-MAP to GPX" all worked out and got my head around that, and it vaporized. I haven't had time to figure out any other map to GPX program, so I make do by panning and zooming before a trip. It's tedious, but it works. I leave the purger shut off, and I am getting a pretty good bunch of tiles for my most traveled areas. I don't have to have the LATEST tiles. When I checked today, Hastings was right where I left it last week.

Today I was out of my normal A.O. When I got home I tried to do a "post fetch. My track was still showing on the map, but I didn't find a GPX file with today's date/time stamp. The most recent was a week old, even though AUTOSAVE GPX has been on all week. When I checked after a restore and power cycle, AUTOSAVE GPX is still clicked "on", so it *is* keeping across power cycles. My first thought was that the VIEW ALL/NONE thing might be affecting the GPX saves.

Thanks Lynn, still loving your work. (as scary as it may seem, I'm even mentoring other Hams with the program)

Window size and position, and unfortunately the View settings, are only recorded if the program is restored, not minimized nor maximized, when it is closed.

But that shouldn't have anything to do with the autosaving of GPX files. Can you describe that in more detail?

Re: WINDOWS 10

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

I just upgraded to Windows 10 and have seen no issues with my existing instances.

Where did you put the .EXE?  And you did unzip it, right?  APRSISCE/32 won't run directly within the .ZIP view and it also doesn't like to be in any Windows-protected directory.  Make a new directory somewhere on your hard drive and unzip the distribution into that then double-click the .EXE from within that directory, not within the integrated ZIP viewer.

The intro video is still helpful at:

Re: Not Loading MAPS!

jkreski@...
 

Additional comment.  I found out what was happening.  I have a Dell laptop and a wireless mouse.  You have to disable the TouchPad on the laptop by doing an FN-F3.  Turns out if the TouchPad and the wireless mouse are both on it causes very erratic behavior on screens.  One such behavior was to continually zoom all the way in on the APRSIS32 map.  I saw nothing but grey and white and believed there was no map.  When I zoomed out I saw there was one.  I left it alone overnight and it zoomed back in on it's own.  That's about when I diagnosed the problem.
