Based on the experiences/reports of other hams in my neck of the woods, replace the Alinco EJ-41U with the Argent Data T3-135 and get a fully-featured, specification-compliant built in TNC.

Any thoughts out there about Simple KISS and the Alinco DR-135TP?

Alinco DR135TP and APRSIS32

Bill Erhardt
 

GM Gang,


I got an excellent deal on an Alinco DR-135TP to replace my Alinco DR-1200T/KPC-3 as my K7MT Igate.  I needed my Alinco DR-1200T/KPC-3 as a spare in case one of the six mountain top nodes I take care of goes down. 


In fact, EAGLHD went down before Christmas but we cannot get to the site before June. We think the antenna broke off but will know more when we get to the site at 10,000 feet (Well 9,900 or so Feet).

I run on solar and the Radio with Dimmed Screen draws only about 1/2 amp. Transmit is set to low or 5 watts and that is excellent values for a solar/battery APRS station.

Wow.. yes the FTM-400 is connected and works fine RF to IS, now i will work on the IS to RF... And APRS-IS works fine...

Thank you very much for taking the time to help and explain things.

Ah, I get it now!  Yes, keep the APRS-IS port configured as it is.

Have you installed and configured AGW's software or DireWolf or some other work-alike?  That would be what APRSIS32 is expecting to connect to via port 8000 and if it's not running, that's the error you would see.

You need to do the audio hookup from the FTM-400 to your computer's sound card (many people prefer a second sound card to avoid inadvertently transmitting windows's sounds) and then configure and tune a soundcard TNC like SVG's AGW or (many prefer) a work-alike like DireWolf.

You'll also need to work out a PTT (push-to-talk) solution if you want a fully functional (read: transmit capable) IGate.

Yeah, not knowing exactly how to create an igate for RF to IS. So i watched a video where it said to create a new port, "AGW", then enter 127.0.0.1 with port 8000. That is what i assumed would need to great an Igate, for RF to IS.

I do have the APRS-IS with noam.aprs2.net with port 14580 and that all works great.

So, all i need is to receive from my FTM-400 and have the APRS-IS on noam.aprs2.net, and that is all i need for an Igate (RF to IS)....?

Re: connect errno 10061

Rob Giuliano
 

What do you mean that 8000 is for the IGate?
Are you expecting to get to the "internet" on port 8000?
 
Typically when "we" talk about IGate ports we are talking about connecting to the internet's APRS-IS servers. 
These are not AGW (which are local), they are APRS-IS ports.
   
These servers are setup under
   Menu Configure Port APRS-IS          (this is the internet gateway port)
      You may need to look at "Device" to see the settings:
      These should be something like:   rotate.aprs2.net
                                              Port:   14580
If you are looking for something else, then please describe your setup and your expected connections in more detail.

Well, im new to setting this up, I want to setup an Igate, im using ftm-400, that is working good... I now created a new AGW port with TCPIP, and i entered port 8000. Just in case, i made sure my PC firewall allows port 8000 to be open. I did a port forwarding from my home router.

Port 8000 is for the Igate port.

I just have my call sign W6OXA.

on the port, i also open both UPD and TCP... just trying to make sure its not a port issue.

What do you expect to have running on port 8000 of your local machine?

What is the port you called IGate supposed to be connecting to?

What is your station's callsign-SSID?

UDP has nothing to do with APRS as supported in APRSISCE/32.

Windows 10 IoT has no real user interface, not even a command line.  In headed mode it can run one interactive program when it boots, but you can't just load up a standard Windows executable.  Windows apps must be ported and recompiled, assuming all of the required libraries are available on IoT.

Re: View All on startup

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

The view settings are recorded with the window shape, size, and location.  The latter information is not directly available for maximized windows so APRSISCE/32 doesn't record it when closing resulting in the unfortunate side effect of also not recording the view settings.

If you close APRSISCE/32 restored once, those view settings will apply until the next time you close it in that state.

Did you notice that if you close it maximized, it re-opens restored?  If you really want it to come back in the maximized state, manually size the window to cover the whole screen and it'll come back the same way..

USB A to MINI B

Bill Erhardt
 

Howdy gang,


We have been having issues with two Timewave PSK-232's using the USB A to Mini B cable.  One on packet 145.010 and one on APRS 144.390 using APRS + SA  (KM7DES).  They just loose communications with the computer.  We then both on one computer for a while and then separated them and put them on individual computers.  The problem remained for the last few months..


I had the same issue with my Davis Vue weather station using the same cable. Resolution was to put a 5mm ferrite cylinder near the console of the Weather Station.  It has been running for over a month with no issues.


I bought some extra ferrite cylinders so I put one on each of the Timeware PSK-232  at the TNC side of the cables at the State DES.  They have been running for over two weeks with no issues. I will watch it to make sure this does resolve the issue. 


If it all works out well, I will switch the software over the APRSIS32 at KM7DES.


Just thought you would like to know.

Re: SCS PTCIIex RB

GM from Montana -  So far really no issues with the transmit interfering with each other.  My beacon is set to transmit once and hour for each program hf 00, RB at 20, APRS messenger 40. Each is 20 minutes apart.  Again, RB Packet is just testing to see if I could do it.  I also have a RB Packet running at the State of Montana DES KM7DES-6 about 4 mile away.
