Re: Development mode

James Ewen
 

The high tech key to unlock the development version is changing a zero to a one in a file.

If that process is too difficult to complete, then the features in the development version may be too advanced to be accessed by the user. 

Think of it as a test of “worthiness”, kind of like the sword in the stone, or Thor’s hammer. 

(By the way this is written in humour, not as a slight on anyone)

Seriously though, it’s not rocket science to read the instructions on accessing development mode. If you are after functions available in development mode, you really need to understand what you are going to be doing, especially with the IS to RF gating. You can destroy the RF channel for hundreds of miles for everyone by setting it up improperly. 

Invest the time required to understand what you are wanting to play with, and read the wiki on how to unlock development mode. 

Development mode is not for appliance operators. (Do I sound like an old crotchety ham radio operator? They were really old when I got into ham radio 30 years ago. I hope I’m not there yet!)

By that I mean you can configure it to pass too much traffic and cause problems.  For that reason it remains "development".  That way it at least makes people more cautious about using the more advanced features, not found in the full release.

So, if you want to experiment with some of the advanced features (mainly passing IS to RF for sure), post your ideas and get feedback as you try them.  That will get you the info on the gotchas that could be lurking.

Yes, the range circle is the outer limit.
The range circle is basically the largest circle that fits on the screen. 
   This can be hieght or width limited, based on window shape.
Its distance can be shown in the bottom left corner.

Looking at the Wiki about the scroller left a question about Scroller text colors.  From the Wiki:

Red, Yellow, Green - Scaled color based on proximity (Red = close, Green = far)
The scale of this conversion is the circle on the map. If the station is within the circle, the color will vary from Green (outer edge) to Red (dead center) based on how close the station is to the coordinates at the center of the screen.

What is the "circle on the map"?  Does this have to do with Range Circle in " Configure / Screen / Circle" ?  I'm guessing that's the "circle" since the text colors change based on my zoom level, but I almost never have the "circle" turned on.  Not a big question, just curious, and the Scroller Wiki left that question unanswered.

Set your HF radio dial to 10.147.60, USB mode.  Set SoundModem to 300 baud AFSK, centered at 1700hz.

Also, there's VERY active conventional HF packet on dial freq 14.105.00 in LSB mode, and dial freq 7.109.50 LSB mode.   Same 300-baud AFSK at 1700hz.

Re: It Works GREAT!

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

If you double-click that narrow vertical bar, it will give you the raw numbers.  The level of the bar and the colors are a red-herring based on a much earlier version of APRSISCE/32 that actually had a limited station count capability.  It would grow the bar as more stations became known and eventually turn red as it neared the top.  That is still the behavior, but when the current station list size is hit, the size is expanded resulting in the bar going back down into the yellow (orange) or green.

So, the bar really exists now only to be a double-click target to get at the detailed station count and configured age information.  Specifically:

nO IT IS A MESS ISSUE i HAVE WITH every yAHOO PAGE, i DESCRIBE BELOW,,

Yahoo has been all messed up for me for geez ten years?

When I go to a page like this it wants me to log in.

I try to but it complains that the password does not match.

So I try to do the help with password thing, to retrieve password.

and I give it the info, and it tells me there is no such user using that E-Mail address.

OK so I try to make a whole new account, and put in that exact same E-Mail address, and guess what?

It tells me I can not use that E-Mail address because it is already in use.

No such user, and already in use at the same time.

so every group I do has been strictly via E-Mail.

I was hoping to be able to read some of the already posts, to maybe get my questions answered there, but cant get in, so I guess I will have to ask Via the E-Mail even tho the question may have been just answered yesterday he he he

A little behind what you're seeing.

Traccar is running as a background service on my Android to do automatic reporting from my phone. 
( See that WF5X in the packet? That's me. )

Sometime over the course of the last few weeks, my work's internet access via the Guess Wireless connection has started to not find the traccar server.
Traccar stores up the unsuccessful position reports when network is unavailable and then dumps them en masse when a network connection is restored.
So, once it finally gets a connection to the server, it floods them out. 

I have found a way to keep the connection at work more stable, but it requires me to remember to start my VPN on my phone. 
Since I'm human, I forget sometimes, and then there's a flood when I remember to send start the VPN. 

MICON tactical calls are used by those of us associated with the multi-county reporting network used for Skywarn reporting to the NWS office for Detroit/Pontiac.
We run 90 sec reporting via traccar, which is autoforwarded to APRS-IS.  90 sec reports via APRS-IS is not really excessive, unless there's an unknown network connection loss, and the subsequent flood when it's restored. 

I'm trying to deal with the issue as best as I can with the limitations that my work has on their guess wireless access. 

But, to answer your question, yes, there is away to block them  -b/MICON*

In the last week or so I saw complaints about what is showing up in the ticker of stations showing up, I thought I would add what I see a lot of, and of course doing a "whois" doesn't show me who it is. I see a lot of MICON-1, MICON-42, etc. I guess I should have paid more attention what was being said, but since basically the only thing I have done is set my pass code and location, and who I track...

I guess my question is, is there a filter that can block anything that has "MICON" in it from showing up? Regardless of whether it has a "-1", or "-2" or "-42". Thanks and I apologize in advance for asking the same question over again so quickly, most of that went over my head because of a lack of knowledge and understanding of what was happening. If this program was a "appliance" like what the "old hams" said would happen with the CW drop back a while ago, I would have to say guilty on both counts.

PS, sorry about the poor picture quality of the second picture, I couldn't get a screen capture of it with my computer so I had to take a picture of it with my cell phone camera.

PPS, I tried to add a filter to not show anything with MICON in it and obviously was missing something important.
