Re: IPv6?

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

Once I learn a bit more, I'll be better equipped to answer that question. I suspect if you do an "ipconfig /all" command right now, you'll find that you actually DO have IPv6 addresses on some, if not all, of your network adapters. AFAIK right now, this doesn't actually mean that you are able to use IPv6 to actually connect to anything outside that particular adapter's network.

More to come.

Re: Displaying Earthquake Symbols in my area.

I just put an s//Q filter in my filter test and saw some packets go by on my full feed.  They were all on both APRS-IS and Firenet, at least so far.  I took one of them and fired up a MultiTrack and then changed the View on that Multitrack to check only View/ Symbols / Quake (see PS).  here's the current world map of earthquakes from the full feed:



If you have a range filter on the APRS-IS and an s//Q filter running for gating from -IS to RF, it should accomplish what you're after.

PS.  It's easier to get a symbol view filter if you first center on a station with the symbol you'd like to see.  That way the symbol is near the top of the View / Symbols cascading menu instead of having to search down through it to find the symbol you want.  This cascading menu is normally sorted by the number of stations currently using the symbol.

Re: IPv6?

Greg D
 

Hi Lynn,

Not here - all v4 at home - but there are two parts to your question.

1.  Is the application itself IPv6 capable?  I am guessing there's two parts to this part...  Your connection out to APRS-IS, and the port you open for others to connect to you.  I don't know much about the Win32 API, but perhaps a test question is whether there are a set of IPv6 versions of any of the APIs that you are using.  If so, then you're probably not compatible.  You'd also need to not have any particular parsing or string length limitations associated with any of the data entry fields.

2.  Is the APRS-IS service IPv6 capable?  According to some Google searches, the answer is yes, but you connect to a different address (ipv6.aprs2.net).  So, it's not going to work "out of the box", since I think you default to the IPv4 APRS-IS connection address.

Good luck!

Re: Displaying Earthquake Symbols in my area.

Rob Giuliano
 

I am curious on how you are getting the data from USGS?

Is it already on the APRS-IS or other internet service that APRS can interface with?
   The Ctrl-G filter will allow you to parse this data and send it out over RF.

Or are you trying to connect to ENS, TED, or other service then "create/add the information" to the APRS network?
   If so, What service and how are you parsing the messages to create APRS messages?

Checking the GPS/NMEA box in the RF port configuration tells APRSISCE/32 that NMEA data can be expected from that RF port.  It allows APRSISCE/32 to enable the Enables / GPS Enabled menu option that will be grayed out if APRSISCE/32 doesn't think it has a source of GPS data.  This menu option will be disabled if the program doesn't think there is any GPS data available.


This is a great piece of software. Thank you for making it available to the ham community!

You're welcome.  I just got back from DCC (TAPR's Digital Communications Conference) Friday and Saturday and a Ride-4-Ronald bicycle event (yesterday, I did just over 20 miles with my son, KJ4DXK) and have some changes that will be forthcoming in APRSISCE/32.

As soon as I can put the time together, look for the current development version to be promoted to a general release so that I can start on some additional changes that will need time to mature before going to general release.

Finally, if you're expecting to receive NMEA data from a connected radio port you should NOT separately configure the NMEA port but simply check the GPS/NMEA box in the radio port configuration.  Windows does not support sharing COMM ports which is why either your radio or NMEA port will be stuck in an OPEN state and never transition to OK.

Rob/KB8RCO,

Thanks for your response. I appreciate your time. I am using your Method 2. I checked and GPS/NMEA was not checked;-(( I made the change and still "no luck.")  I found that some how the PC out was off. I know I had turned it on, so I fixed that and it "helped." NMEA is still showing "Open" instead of "OK."

I am clearly missing something. reset both the radio and NMEA to 4800 on the off chance the default setting for the radio might work better. APRS-IS is "dinging" me, so something is still off. I have a date/time and a Fix=3D. My fix is dropping in and out. I am located next to a window, so . . .

Now the program is acting "buggy." Too many settings in too many places; who knows what I have created?
As I mentioned in my earlier note, the profile/script for the 710 seemed to work with the HT, but . . .
I know there is a script specifically for the TH72. Perhaps installing that and creating a new RF port using that script would help.

I know where to find the script I just don't know where, or exactly how, to install it in the APRS-IS file structure. Since it is not an executable I assume I can just "Copy ALL" and paste it. I have not found any specific notes on on the web re how to handle. I am assuming that once pasted (?) in the right location it would then appear in the dropdown box when setting up a new port. Can you shed any light on whether I am on target?

Thanks again,

2. Use when you device only provides 1 common COM port and sends GPS and APRS together

How to connect:
1. Configure Ports NMEA -> settings accordingly
   NOTE: port speed and other factors need to match the GPS
2. After setting up the RF port in Configure Ports "New port"
   There is a checkbox above "Device" for "GPS/NMEA" make sure it is checked

I checked and GPS/NMEA was not checked;-(( I made the change and still "no luck.")  I found that some how the PC out was off. I know I had turned it on, so I fixed that and it "helped." NMEA is still showing "Open" instead of "OK."

I am clearly missing something. reset both the radio and NMEA to 4800 on the off chance the default setting for the radio might work better. APRS-IS is "dinging" me, so something is still off. I have a date/time and a Fix=3D. My fix is dropping in and out. I am located next to a window, so . . .

Now the program is acting "buggy." Too many settings in too many places; who knows what I have created?
As I mentioned in my earlier note, the profile/script for the 710 seemed to work with the HT, but . . .
I know there is a script specifically for the TH72. Perhaps installing that and creating a new RF port using that script would help.

I know where to find the script I just don't know where, or exactly how, to install it in the APRS-IS file structure. Since it is not an executable I assume I can just "Copy ALL" and paste it. I have not found any specific notes on on the web re how to handle. I am assuming that once pasted (?) in the right location it would then appear in the dropdown box when setting up a new port. Can you shed any light on whether I am on target?

Thanks again,

73, Scott/AE7RO

Only 1 XML that is important (oh and the "-safe" backup).  Then there is a directory for APRSIS32 which has the maps.  Logs are placed in the same directory as the XML, put don't impact performance.

If you have the GPS data going out (according to "PC output" setting, then I believe it will work in KISS mode as well.  Actually, I think the purpose of the and are to put the internal TNC in KISS mode.

Thanks!  The answer to your question is "Yes," I was getting APRS data. Your review/explanation helped me connect some basic dots. I had tried the KISS mode in trying to sort this out at one point, but if memory serves, I may have failed/overlooked the need to change the radio to "PC output." 

If I can create a fully functioning KISS port setup I'll shoot for the one that uses the explicit 72 open/close command set. if I recall correctly, once the program is installed there are a couple of .xml files/ (folders?). I need to determine exactly where to put the 72 designed set. Given the port selection process, and the radio specific options, I assume there is specific location that allow the program to see it (i.e., you can't just drop the set in the "basic" program folder.

If I recall correctly, the D72 does not have the ability to send the GPS data out the USB port to the PC.  The D710 does have this ability.  You can check the D72 Yahoo group for details on this point.  The upcoming D74 definitely has the ability to forward GPS data to the PC via either USB or Bluetooth.

The D710 port types should function fine when connecting to a D72, however.  Outside the GPS/NMEA issue.

Finally, if you're expecting to receive NMEA data from a connected radio port you should NOT separately configure the NMEA port but simply check the GPS/NMEA box in the radio port configuration.  Windows does not support sharing COMM ports which is why either your radio or NMEA port will be stuck in an OPEN state and never transition to OK.

To deconfigure an NMEA port, go into the Configure / Ports / NMEA and blank out the connection details.

Re: NEMA Does Not Open

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

Ok, my memory is obviously worng (sic).  As written in the Kenwood_TH-D7 Yahoo group on 5/5/2016:

If you mean you want to log the GPS output data via the USB serial output, turn on "PC Output" (menu 202). You should see the GPS data at all times regardless of TNC use. Don't forget to match the baud rate (menu 330).

If you mean the internal GPS logging (menu 220/230) I have never used that so please disregard this message, and pardon the interruption.

Danny
K2DMS

So, make sure you have menu 202 and menu 330 set correctly AND check the GPS/NMEA box on your D72 port and you should be in business.  Maybe I'll try to get a chance to hook up my own D72 to my PC sometime to actually eye-ball the function.

Can you shed any light on whether I am on target?

Thanks again,

There are 2 ways to receive NMEA data:
1. On a dedicated COM port of the computer
2. Mixed in with the APRS data on the RF port.

Which to use:
1. Use if you directly connect a GPS to the computer
   Use if the device TNC or Radio) provides a separate GPS port with ONLY NMEA data coming through
2. Use when you device only provides 1 common COM port and sends GPS and APRS together

How to connect:
1. Configure Ports NMEA -> settings accordingly
   NOTE: port speed and other factors need to match the GPS
2. After setting up the RF port in Configure Ports "New port"
   There is a checkbox above "Device" for "GPS/NMEA" make sure it is checked
   NOTE: port speed and other factors are already set as you can't do 2 speeds on 1 port

How to enable:
  from the Menu >Enables >GPS Enabled

You should see a screen change to include GPS information.

Recently in stalled package using the Kenwood 710 APRS profile on a TH-D72A. Initially all was working well. With the HT on the software turned on the TNC as advertised. APRSIS and the radio ports come up. I have configured and accepted the NEMA port and shows in the Config Port dropdown. No change wa made to the radio setup. What is th ecorrect speed for the NEMA port. On my setup the radio is on COM 3. I am receiving local RF APRS data. Any thoughts re troubleshooting would be appreciated.
