Hi Arnold. You may be in luck, depending on how you're feeding the packets into APRSIS32. SoundModem for ex has a blocking feature in its ini file, just enter callsigns etc the in the appropriate field. Packets from those stns will be discarded before reaching APRSIS32.  RF blocking is considered unethical and the best solution is to liaison with the other party. It also depends on your initial/subsequent approach(es). Some people get easily offended. I am aware that in some cases a shrink may be needed and there is almost nothing you can do... Possibly sending an army of trained pigeons to target the offending antenna?.... He he.

You can filter what you show locally on your screen by the use of Tactical Nicknames.
These can be set in your instance and shared over-air to others in your group.

This is all done on your computer... no need to have operators in your event that already have APRS set up re-configure for the event.

I can't dig up all the details now, but you can set them in Screen > Labels > Nicknames.
When you set up a Nickname, you can add a Shriek to it ( !MYEVENT!, we use !MS150! for our MS bike events ) 
then filter your display based on the Shriek by choosing it in View > Shrieks

That's the overview, Lynn probably has a canned message to send out that details more specifics.

Rest easy, the filter only applies to what the APRS-IS will be sending to you, not what you will be gating to the APRS-IS.  APRSIS32 adheres to the IGate specification at http://www.aprs-is.net/IGateDetails.aspx, specifically:

 

Gate all packets heard on RF to the Internet EXCEPT if any of the following are true:

  1. (AX.25 RF) The packet does not have a control field of 0x03 or a PID of 0xf0.
  2. The TNC has PASSALL turned on.
  3. 3rd-party packets (data type } ) with TCPIP or TCPXX in the 3rd party header.
    3rd-party packets without TCPXX or TCPIP mnust have the RF header and the 3rd party data type stripped before passing to APRS-IS.
  4. generic queries (data type ? ).
  5. packets with TCPIP, TCPXX, NOGATE, or RFONLY in the header (last 2 are optional).
Note that there is no provision for "black-listing" stations.  If you copy it on an RF-type port and none of the above conditions are true, then the packet will be gated to the APRS-IS.  Assuming, of course, that you have the appropriate enables on both the RF and APRS-IS port.

Re: Fun with filters (Really just some questions)

Justin Cherington
 

Ok thanks for the info. I was hoping that I could blacklist, we’ve got lots of people who abuse aprs and aren’t interested in learning. The -b filter was helpful in the past but I like your software enough to get over it. 


sounds like RF to IS isn’t really customizable, but IS to RF is? I thought I saw in the docs that creating a satgate was possible. In that scenario you wouldn’t want to gate directly heard RF, only that which was digipeated by the sat.

Re: Map Opacity

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

I should have also mentioned that the Screen / Brightness settings (Bright vs Dim) simply change the background color of the map between white and black respectively.  This has the effect of making a dim map at lower opacity settings with the black background and a washed-out map at lower opacity settings with the white background.  Dim and low opacity makes for a better night-time map.

And at 100% opacity, you cannot tell the difference since none of the background comes through the map.
