Blocking a digipeater from digi'ing my beacon

KP3FT
 

Is there a way, on my end, to temporarily stop a specific digipeater from digipeating my RF beacon (and also stop iGating me if possible)?  I'm testing out a yagi and an amp/preamp setup to see if I can hit some digis via RF in the north, west, and northwest directions, but there's a digi to the east that is in a prime location so it hears my digi no matter what direction I point the yagi.  I can't tell if the other digis hear me because the eastern digi could be TX'ing right on top of theirs after I beacon.  I can always ask the owner to temporarily block my station, but I thought there might be a way to do it from my end.

Yes, -b/call* will block all -SSIDs for the specified callsign. But again, only in the Additional Filter for the APRS-IS.  If you receive a packet via RF, it will be processed and displayed.

PS.  I'd like to know the specific station(s) so I can check them out if you don't mind.  Sending privately to KJ4ERJ@arrl.net is fine by me.

Question - would -b/call* command in Filters block all SSID from APRS-IS for a callsign?
There is one callsign sending a non APRS position that makes an altitude ring, not unlike a balloon or aircraft. Dang nuisance, and the position is off by a whole state!

Currently, all I can do is select and KILL from map when checking for balloons or aircraft to track with the MT feature.
Unfortunately, this station with multiple -SSIDs returns when it beacons again.

Made me laugh, reminded me of a feature on APRSdos program version that Bob WB4APR had included.
Basically, the program allowed the user to set a range ring and it would generate an alarm if the area defined was entered by any APRS mobile user.
Then Bob wrote that he would quit playing with APRSdos programming and return to his chores. :)
That took care of the wife, mother-in-law, pesky visitors, too, I imagine.

Thank you Lynn. I’ll give it a try.

For the former (nickname), locate it and either delete it or remove the checkboxes on the automatic MultiTrack.

For the latter (remembered MultiTracks), simply close the MultiTrack and restart APRSIS32.  It will only re-remember it if the MultiTrack is open when you close APRSIS32.

I wish!  Then I could just release it!  The current development version is same one that I run here and represents the latest version of the source.

APRSISMO, on the other hand, is very out of date, but you can get the latest "TestHost" from http://tinyurl.com/Get-APRSISMO and using the "2019 Ride for Ronald" link instead of the "Tap here to download".  I really need to get that straightened out too!

Press and hold your right arrow key.
That should 'darken' your map.
Pressing the left arrow key makes it lighter, or 'faded'

My question for a new thread is abt triggers in APRSIS, can events be triggered, an object (a defined repeater obj for ex) when a mobile station comes within RF range? Even more, can an event be triggered, a message, packet etc via IS or RF when a station comes in range of a particular area, a park, summit  etc?

APRSISCE/32 doesn't currently support triggers on anything, but I have it on my ToDo list.  In particular, I'd like a notification to pop up when my wife's van is approaching home!

(Edited - syntax)
Hi Lynn. Great. Tnx. I did actually come across this page (symbols.htm), maybe a couple of years ago. I remember now. I went past swiftly over the SSID defined icons section, quickly erasing it off my mind. I was saying to myself, ah, nobody uses that anymore... A decision with a boomerang effect, of course.

Re: KAM-XL symbol

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

Please see http://www.aprs.net/vm/DOS/SYMBOLS.HTM which documents symbol standards based on the -SSID for when the APRS packet doesn't contain any symbol information.  This is also documented on page 93 in the APRS101.PDF specification.

Not all APRS client applications implement the full specification, but APRSIS32 does implement the symbol hierarchy.

Re: KAM-XL symbol (was: GPS Setup SOLVED)

Hi Randy. To be honest this is the 1st time I see this table, SSID defined icons!  I didn't realise icons can be defined by the SSID in APRS. This is very useful in my case, "pure" GPGGA statements. I'll need to polish my APRS skills... he he. I am assuming aprs.fi has not implemented this feature, probably stn status conflicts etc? Many thanks.
I have tried SSID -4; truly, APRSISCE shows a bicycle; red dot in aprs.fi

Re: KAM-XL symbol (was: GPS Setup SOLVED)

You're seeing a boat in APRSIS32 because the SSID -8 is a boat since there is no other indicator of symbol.
APRS.fi is defaulting it to a red dot tho..

From the APRS spec:
