Same with people that keep sending their "Special Status", who cares?

Unwanted Follow-Me window

JD Delancy
 


APRSIS intermittently opens up a "follow me" screen for a N4xxx station.  No clue who that is, nor do I wish to follow it

Anyone have a clue why APRSIS spawns that unwanted follow me?  How do you stop it

Re: RSGB: Stop the 2 Meter Band (144-146MHz) being taken away from Radio

Michael Wright
 

I first heard about this loss on QRZ, also includes 1240 MHz,
https://forums.qrz.com/index.php?threads/144-and-1240-mhz-bands-%E2%80%93-rsgb-information.663438/

My initial impression is very little concern, if it was HF spectrum then that thread would be pages long. In the big picture I can see VHF being allocated to other users, very little traffic on the 2-meter band though 144.39 is very busy. On the other hand most wireless users have little interest in spectrum below 500 MHz (i.e. 5G with all the highspeed data).

This sounds more like a “SIGN IN TO RECEIVE FREE ROBOCALLS FOR LIFE” deal.

Just like the sign up to win a free car deals they used to have at the local malls.  Someone won the car ok, but all of them gave away their personal information to an ad agency who sold them as mailing lists back before the internet.

 

As Robert Heinlein said, “There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.”

Theres also a discussion happening on RadioReference about this. France is looking to take away the spectrum for aeronautical use. A lot of people say that it's a bad idea as quite a few amsats downlink in that spectrum. https://forums.radioreference.com/threads/france-proposes-144-146-mhz-for-aeronautical-mobile-service.389855/

So there is something to it, but I rarely just click a link with little to no background information explaining why I need to support them.?? Do your "Due Diligence".

Re: Windows 10 ProX64 installation [1 Attachment]

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

Note to the group:  Please do NOT open this Word document attachment until we hear from the poster (W4RSS) if it is legit. I'm sensing some spam/phishing here based on the following:

1) 3+ months since the last post on this subject

2) W4RSS was not one of the participants in that discussion (it was Mark, KD9EEE)

3) The From address in the e-mail header doesn't match Yahoo's poster e-mail address.

Seems rather phishie to me!

Re: Selecting a transmit path.

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

Short answer:  Yes.

Longer answer:  You can this already by simply changing the Configure / Beacon / Path to whatever you want.  You just have to remember to change it back when the QSO is over.

Yes, I know it would be simpler to have a per-chat path specification.  It will come eventually,

GPX import/export

Ryszard Labus
 

Hello Lyn, guys.

I found a minor but troublesome problem in APRSIS32.
During the cooperation with the search and rescue team. While searching
for a missing person.
I got from them data in GPX format.  These were files with sectors to
search, and landmarks.
I imported it easily. But when exporting data from APRSIS32 , my file
was not compatible with their (Garmin Basecamp) GPS software.
After a brief analysis I found that this could be easily fixed by adding
the following entry in the file header.


    xmlns="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1"

The header before the fix:
<gpx version="1.1" creator="APRSIS32 2019/01/21 17:53">

The header after the patch:
<gpx version="1.1" creator="APRSIS32 2019/01/21 17:53"
xmlns="http://www.topografix.com/GPX/1/1">

If you could fix it in the program to make the export file look like it
was after the fixes, it would be a great help.
Because of our (hams) well-developed cooperation with search and rescue
groups.


Best regards SQ9MDD
