Re: MAJOR BUG - Map Flush error [1 Attachment]

I believe I noticed this as well. I don’t recall the circumstances. I’ll have to go back into my email history.

 

I do believe that I just went into the directory and deleted the zoom levels that mattered to me. Deleting from 13 or so and higher cleared everything out. I did it while aPRSIS32 was closed or had an alternate tile set selected.

 

Best regards,

Fred N7FMH

[Attachment(s) from ARNOLD HARDING included below]

OK, this isn't a major bug, but I got zero answers last time I asked.

 

Why does attempting to flush the maps cause a failure?

I'm running version 2018/11/07 15:13    in a Windoz 10 computer.  It also fails in my laptop the same way.

It also causes APRSISCE to terminate.

 

I discovered that since maps don't flush, new maps are not loaded when new maps are available.  We have some new streets in our area, but APRSISCE won't load the new maps since flush won't work at all.  Flush won't even happen because of number of days.

 

What am I doing wrong?

Re: Passcode

Rob Giuliano
 

Eric,
These responses are being posted to the APRSISce yahoo group.  I don't see where you are "being mixed up with anyone else".  You are just seeing these multiple responses.  They are not addressed to you directly.  Because they are posted to a larger group, others have posted related questions and comments which are also responded to. 

If you no longer want to receive these postings from the group, please Unsubscribe
  You may also choose ther options for monitoring the group by visiting your groups and selecting different options.

Sorry if this is confusing, and I am VERY surprised you never got a response to your passcode request. 
Requests are typically sent to aprsisce-owner@... with callsign and name as assigned to the callsign.  These requests processes and responded to off this list (except by accident) so the callsign / passcode pair is not sent to a general mailing list.  This is in accordance with the APRS-IS request (taken from APRSIS32 WIKI): 
Note that since http://www.aprs-is.net/Connecting.aspx states the following (emphasis theirs), only APRSISCE/32 users can get an APRS-IS passcode following the instructions above.
It is the responsibility of each software author to provide the proper passcode to their individual users.
In the case of Brian Collins (below), the original request was made to the "owner group".  The response was sent to him and the "owner" group.  He replied to the "owner" group or the person who full filled the request with an additional question.  The response to that question was posted to this group so everyone could benefit form the answer.

When someone asks a question, ther are usually others who read it and it helps them as well. 

This request process through the application developer really is the only check to ensure those accessing the internet service (which may get onto RF) are licensed.  This is in accordance with the APRS-IS system request.  We strongly discourage the existance and use of these online passcode tools.

APRSIS32 does not require the passcode to run.  The passcode is to ensure the user is a licensed amateur operator so that data exchanged between the internet and RF is legal.   So you can install the APRSIS32 on as many devices as you wish.  In order to connect to the internet system, you use your callsign (different ssids) and the passcode provieed (x'ed out here).

This is the APRS-IS passcode based on you callsign.  It works for the base callsign (any -SSID) in any software that is looking for an APRS-IS passcode.  Some software may have other registration codes required.  This is NOT that, but only the APRS-IS passcode based on your callsign.

Re: passcode request

Rob Giuliano
 

The passcode was sent off list.
This is being posted to the general group to ensure you have the full answers you need - in case the passcode is what you needed,  but probably was.

APRSIS32 is an amateur radio application (32-bit and works on Windows 7 32-bit) that interacts with the APRS-IS (internet system).  Because the infomration is passed on and off RF on Amateur radio frequencies, it is not intended to be used with GMRS or other radio services.

APRSIS32 has no requirements for passcode to run the program.  The program will NOT connect to the APRS-IS system without the passcode.
The passcode sent to you directly was for your amateur radio callsign and connection to APRS-IS from within APRSIS32 (Menu item >Configure >General, and enter it in place of the -1 in the Passcode box) or other APRS client application (such as Xastir, WinAPRS, YAAC, UA-View, ...).  It will not work for GMRS callsigns, nor will it work in a general login box such as the one on aprs.fi (top right corner).

What were you trying to "sign-in" to that you were unable to?
If you have more questions, please post to the general APRSISce Yahoo group and this group will be more than happy to provide more information.

Welcome and let us know how it is going.

Re: Highlighted area

Wrong forum, but you can still get an answer.

If I recall correctly the pink square is showing position ambiguity.

It always helps to provide detailed information when asking a specific question about a specific station. The very least would be the callsign of the station you are looking at. There are a whole bunch of generic answers that would probably lead you astray.

Have a look at the raw packets of the station in question, and see if they are sending an ambiguous position to verify my assumption is correct.

Anyhow - the problem was not in aprsisce, nor in Soundmodem AGW. They were both configured in a proper manner.

The problem was in the USB to serial adapter that was provided by West Mountain with their nomic interface. that adapter demanded both of the lines DTR an RTS on serial be checked. Since there is no option in Soundmodem for controlling that - that adapter simply will not work with the program.

Since I had some other adapters sitting around - I tried one and it works now.

AGW should be controlling the PTT.

Re: Sonundblaster

Michael Coslo
 

Final update. The problem was not with my audio levels. The problem was with the USB to Serial adapter as supplied by West mountain Radio. This adapter required both RTS and DTR to be enabled in order to trigger transmit. If it was not enabled, it would go into transmit mode and stay there. I tried the adapter with other programs, and it worked correctly with them. Every program that it worked did have some manner of allowing controlling RTS and DTR.

Normally with a commercial adapter, RTS and DTR do not need messing with.

I replaced the supplied adapter with a different one, and everything is working correctly now. Thanks much for the help.

It appears my post never was received.

AGW is a TNC to TCP/IP. It is not a serial port emulator. You can connect any TNC to AGW and it will decode the data and send it over TCP/IP to a computer as (pseudo) AX.25 packets. The implementation also includes a sound card implemented TNC (modem).

For the APRSIS32 configuration

Very SPECIFICALLY create the port:
From the >Configure Menu choose >Ports >New Port...
The next box you need to choose Type and a name.
Type: AGW
Name: Nomic {you choose what you want}
Then hit <Create> button

Now you need to choose the Port Type
There are 3 options: TCP/IP Bluetooth COMn
You must choose TCP/IP because AGW is a TCP/IP communication device.

The next box is the TCP Configuration.
Assuming the AGW application is on the same computer
For IP or DNS: localhost (or use 127.0.0.1)
Port: 8000 (default for AGW. if you changed this in your AGW application, it must match)
Then click <OK> button

This will initiate the communication between AGW application and APRSIS32 without any COM port being configured in APRSIS32.


For the AGW configuration, you need to specify the port used for PTT.
Right-Click the modem icon for AGW in the system tray and choose Properties.
In the Select RadioPort box, choose the port you want to configure (if more than 1), then <OK>
The Properties for Port# will have a Tnc Setup tab which shows Select Port in the top left.
Under Tnc Type (SoundCard) you will see Mode KISS Simple and <Options>
The <Options> button says:
The PTT lines for Serial Ports are for Left Channel the RTS and fro Right Channel the DTR line.
This indicates that AGW is the place to configure the COM port to properly use the PTT features.

Again, if you are using AGWPE, you should not be telling APRSISCE/32
anything about any COM ports. That configuration belongs in AGW, not
APRSISCE/32.

In APRSISCE/32, simply configure an AGE type port and connect it via
TCP/IP to your AGWPE instance. Do not specify ANY COM ports directly in
APRSISCE/32. AGW will handle all of the interaction with the
SoundBlaster, the radio, and especially PTT.

APRSISCE/32 doesn't support any direct audio interface, nor does it
support PTT via any means. It only supports TNCs and GPSs on serial
ports, NOT soundcard or other radio interfaces.

Hi Stephen - the audio portion is working FB.

My problem is that as soon as I select the serial port and accept it, the radio goes into transmit mode, and the only way to shut it off is to select none and accept that.

It appears that the Rigblaster wants RTS and DTR selected. It suggests that in the manual, and the Rigblaster PTT and audio work well in other programs.

I have pretty good confidence that if I could somehow select RTS and DTR in APRSice/32, the setup would work equally well.

I’m certain this will prove me the town idiot, but I’m attempting to set up APRSisce/32 with my Icom 746 and a Rigblaster nomic.

Tried two different computers - a little Insignia Flex, and an HP Envy I57200 CPU @2.5 GHz Running Windows 10 Home.

I’m using soundmodem for an AGWPE.

I have the programs talking to each other and I’m seeing skawks and positions, but I’m having some trouble transmitting.

When I open a com Port, as soon as I accept it, it goes into transmit mode.

I’ve used the device before on other software, and as long as I have RTS and DTR enabled, it stops and starts like it should.

Any help is appreciated!
