It appears to be working fine on my home station.

What station are you trying to get to send a position that it isn't working?

Hi all,

Does ?APRSP QUERY work in APRSIS32 please? It is supposed to work when you select MULTITTRACK also, but since no station replies to ?APRSP I wonder if the receiving station has to activate something in the menus.
I use the latest development version and all my friends who I send the ?APRSP queries also use the development version.
All other QUERIES work fine for us. ?APRSP does not seem to do anything.
Any ideas?

Re: full screen startup

James Ewen
 

There’s something wonky about Windows that Lynn says doesn’t support opening in full screen mode. 

I have never figured out what it is, but APRS-IS has to be windowed to be able to save its configuration. That means when you save the config, it’s not full screen, which means when it opens again, you come up windowed. 

Every other Windows program seems to work differently, but Lynn has said over and over again it has to be in a less than full screen mode. 

Drag your window to almost full screen and you’re close. Or, click on the full screen button after a start.

Did you leave the -1 at the end of the passcode as you indicate below?  You need to delete that.

However, the gray screen is more like fixed by Lynn's and/or Fred's suggestion.

Are you sure you created a new directory and unzipped the download into that new directory and then double-clicked the APRSIS32.EXE from there.  The symptom you are describing happens when you double-click the .EXE from directly in a .ZIP viewer instead of unzipping and executing the unzipped copy.

Re: How to edit or delete PHG from aprs.fi

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

For the purposes of adding the PHG0000 to your free-form text comment, you're not looking for the CUSTOM0-6 fields.  They are, as we have stated numerous times, not editable but intended to be "understood" by local operations personnel.

The free-form text comment is what I found in the attached 3 pages extracted from the FT2DR APRS manual.  This is what your original question was about, and what I've been trying to answer.  Regardless of the fact that you've now managed to clear the obsolete PHG information from aprs.fi and had, at some point, managed to actually incorporate the PHG0000 in an RF position packet which was summarily not parsed by aprs.fi.

I believe this case is now closed.  But only if you accept the fact that there is not, and likely never will be, any way to edit the CUSTOM0-6 definitions of the Mic-E status code which is only allocated 3 bits in the Mic-E position packet format specification.

Custom 6 just means the "6"th custom message.  it means what the sender and recipient both agree it means.
It can mean "need more water" or whatever.

Re: How to edit or delete PHG from aprs.fi

C0-C6 mean just what they say and what you have read "Custom 0" through "Custom 6".  There is no way to edit that meaning in any APRS radio or software that I've encountered.  It's up to the local (or global) operating group to agree on what each of those selections mean, regardless of what they say on the screen.

So Yaesu's answer to how to edit them would have been "you don't".

And the Mic-E status is actually sent in 3 bits, so there's no way to communicate any meaning other than the table from aprs101.pdf, the APRS specification document.

C0-C6 can only be selected - there are no free form that once could edit.  Yeasu admin never approved my question on how to edit,  perhaps Yaseu does not even have a clue how to edit it haha.

Re: How to edit or delete PHG from aprs.fi

Did you look at the PDF that I previously attached of pages 38-41 of the FT2DR APRS manual?  I'm not talking about the Mic-E comments that includes the Custom options, but the actual free-form text entry and subsequent selection.  The Mic-E statuses are truly just "Custom" and it is up to the local viewer to interpret what they mean completely outside of APRS.  From aprs101.pdf:

This is NOT the free-form text entry capablity described on pages 38 to 41 of the FT2DR APRS manual and also NOT where you neeeded to have put the PHG0000.  But that's all water under the bridge now.

Thank you for the reply.  Sorry, I forgot to indicate the SSID in question.  At any rate,  Yaesu radios I have none of the "CUSTOM 0-6" can not be edited.  I am not even sure what they were named "CUSTOM" when one can not be edited.  I post on Yaesu Facebook asking how to edit those "CUSTOM" field but my question was never approved by Yaesu admin, so it never got posted.

Yaesu MIC-E can not be edited,  I can only "select" which one of the pre-defined I wanted to use.

At the end of the day I was able to removed the PHG I did not want from the aprs.fi, just had to do it using your program.

Re: How to edit or delete PHG from aprs.fi

I should have also mentioned that when doing the PHG0000 from a radio, you need to transmit the beacon containing the text in range of an IGate to get it through the APRS-IS to aprs.fi.  Checking the raw packets of the station that transmitted the packet should be sufficient to ensure that at least one has been delivered.  aprs.fi's Decoded view is also quite informative to ensure that it interpreted your intent correctly.

It appears that you actually DID get the PHG0000 entered into a radio correctly, but aprs.fi's parser didn't parse it.

So it seems that where the radio put the comment caused aprs.fi's parser to see a leading ` which caused it to not "see" the PHG0000 for what it was intended to be.

There is nothing "special" about APRSIS32's "comment" text, it's all in the label given.

I don't have any Yaesu APRS radios, but in my Kenwood D74, there's a "Position Comment" (menu 502) which is NOT it (that's the Mic-E select-a-status from a list including things like Enroute, In Service, Returning, and so forth) and "Status Text" (Menu 503) which is where you can pre-configure up to 5 different free-form texts and select one to be included on beacons.
