It is MIC-E notifications.I did a quick search and found out how to disable them.
I am still learning all of this since retiring last year. Computers have come a long way since my TI 99-4A.
Thank you for the replies.

Re: AUtomatic GPX

Hi Cory
If you an Android phone you can use APRSdroid app or even the Vero VR N7500 app without the radio this now records your route on the phone and can be exported as a KLM file. There are several iPhone apps which is the network and the phone becomes a station all can be tracked by APRS direct or APRS.fi. 
Hope this points you in the right direction.

Trouble creating a new map tile set

Mark Herson
 

Hello to the Group,

Perhaps it's me but I'm having a problem creating a new Tile Set in APRSIS32, Development version 2020/05/19 21:42 ("About" window pasted at end of post.)

In the Tile Set window, It seems that using the up/down arrows on the tile server's port only allow the values of 0 or -1.  If I manually enter 80, it will be accepted when saved, but when brought back up to check that things were saved correctly, it  shows a port of 0. (First graphic shows original entry box. Second graphic is what comes back on inspection.)

 

And, the .XML file shows 0 also. <Port>0</Port>^M   In this condition, tile fetching does not work.
If I edit the .XML file to be 80 and don't touch anything when I bring up APRSIS32, tile fetching works OK.
I've also seen a few cases in this development version where the upgrade from the previous version reset all the port 80's to 0 and broke tile fetching.

I have seen this on both a Win 10 machine and several Linux Debian 10 machines running Wine.

Any ideas of what is going on?

Also, there doesn't seem to be an easy way to remove a tile group. Previously, if I recall correctly, one could disable a tile group under Enables, and then a checkbox would appear in the Tile Set config box. Unchecking the box would remove the configuration. There is a Delete button in the Tile Set config box, but how does one get it to light up?

73, Mark, N2MH

Re: IPaq 3950

Hi Mark,

By some miracle, my iPAQ still fires up. The version of APRSISCE on it
is dated 2013/10.29 15:15. That might not be the latest that will run
on it, but it's at least one that does.

To your other question about the TNC, my config seems to have been
connected to a Kenwood TH-D74 via Bluetooth at some point. No idea
about your TNC, but if it can do KISS, and connect via Bluetooth, it
might work.

Good luck!

Re: IPaq 3950

Hi Mark,

I doubt any version of the APRSISCE software would run on this model.  I ran it many years ago on an iPaq HW6945, but it used the Windows Mobile 5 operating system, which I think was the first version that supported it.  The 3950 appears to use Pocket PC 2002, which pre-dates that by several years.

There are several parameters in the APRSIS32.xml file for this.

   <Stations.MinAge>80</Stations.MinAge>
   <Stations.MaxAge>120</Stations.MaxAge>
  <Stations.MaxAge.Buddy>240</Stations.MaxAge.Buddy>
So, as I recall, the station starts againg (I believe fades) at 80 seconds, and disappears at 120 seconds.
  If the station is in the BUDDY list, it will disappear at 240 seconds.

Closing APRSIS32 application and editing the XML to change these parameters should do what you want.
I'll let Lynn fill in more details.
