Re: win32 download

Rob Giuliano
 

The best place to download APRSIS32 from is the WIKI: http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/downloads

While there, please take a look at the initial startup which includes a very nice "first use" video at http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/initial-startup

And I also recommend reading about the Development version http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/doc:development-version
  to make an informed decision on whether to use that version - most people do.

Lastly, it is VERY important to unzip the aprsis32.exe from the downloaded zip file into a folder which has read/write permission. 
  Windows 10 has become quite strict about permissions in the Programs Files and Program Files (x86) folders.
  The supporting data for these executables must go into the {user}\AppData folder, but APRSIS32 does not do that (remains compatible with other OS's)

You are responsible for your stations transmissions.
Thanks for reminding us to keep ourselves clean.

Re: IS input data not passed to RF

Rob Giuliano
 

The IStoRF option can overload the local RF frequency very quickly.
In order to avoid overloading the RF, APRSIS32 will only send specific data received from IS to RF.

This feature can be misused very easily, so is not commonly available.
It is only available when running the DEVELOPMENT version of APRSIS32:


 There is a 2 step process to determine which data is send:
1. Use <CTRL>G to setup a filter test to determine which messages received on IS will be sent to RF
    This internal APRSIS32 filter uses the same format as the APRS-IS system and include + (add data) and - (prevent data) options
    Let this run for quite some time so you are sure the amount of data received that goes to RF is not excessive.
    THIS TEST IS VERY IMPORTANT!!!
2. After you are sure you will not overload the RF channel in your area, you can implement the test filter with
    <CTRL>I

IMPORTANT:
You MUST test this filter or other users will be shut out from using the RF frequency because you are flooding it with data.
This process MUST be done each time you start APRSIS32.  It cannot be started automatically.
You are responsible for your stations transmissions.

You may want to search the Groups.io pages fro Ctrl-I for more information.
I kind of remember there are some discussions on IGating specific types of messages (like weather stations)

I just tried sending CQSRVR to see if I'd get a response from any group but instead received, NO ACTIVE GROUPS.


anyone have messaging on every day 4 a test?

Arnold Harding - KQ6DI
 

I am reasonably sure I messed up the settings in one of my IGates, and it won't send Ack's back when a message is sent from nearby stations.  It should be an easy fix, but there is nothing like testing to be sure.
I'm sure some of you have messaging/APRSISCE on 24/7, and it would be nice to know what stations so I can test-ping and know I should get a response.
I have other projects to do at this site, and the day depends when other parts arrive, but I'm hoping for Wednesday morning, California time.
So if someone doesn't mind getting a test ping, please let me know the callsign.
My station is/will be KQ6DI, and I can even be messaged now so I know.
The IGate I need to correct is KQ6DI-1 near Yosemite National Park.
 
p.s.  It makes me feel bad when I see messages going properly to the destination from someone camping in the mountains, but they never see the Ack.  Oops.
 
Thanks, Arnold, KQ6DI

Re: Install on Windows Mobile 6

Greg D
 

Hi Mark,

To be honest, the brain cells (such as they were) that were involved in installing software on Windows Mobile have long since been archived  That said, I don't remember needing to use the tethering to my desktop in order to do it.  I had long ago moved from Windows to Linux, so use of ActiveSync on a regular basis would have been problematic.  My recollection was that I had managed to "bootstrap" the device (an HP iPAQ 6945, Windows Mobile 5) with a lash-up of some sort (IR to an HPLX Palmtop comes to mind), enough to get an FTP client loaded.  From there, I used that link to move files around, and presumably installed stuff locally from the Mini (not micro) SD card.

Ha!  By some miracle, the device actually still boots...  I see a "download" directory that looks like it has apps that I had installed.  Since it's not the default "Downloads" (plural, capital D), it was one I created.

If it helps, the APRSISCE version I have installed says it's "2013/10/29 15:15", which I think was one of the last versions that ran on the device.  If I've got the right one, the download file date appears to be from 12/19/2015, though that's a bit suspicious (2 years newer than the compile date).  {shrug}

These are interesting devices.  Issues include relatively poor battery life (especially if running the GPS) and the lack of a modern web browser, along with the lack of support for WPA2 WiFi so it can't connect to our home network.  And of course, the old "Edge" cell network is no longer in operation if even I put my SIM in an adapter so that it would fit.  But I just got it tethered to my Kenwood TH-D74 via Bluetooth, and it's receiving APRS just fine!

Good luck!

I understand your comment, but as there are LOADS of redundant cell/mobile phones and other devices running WIndows Mobile (not CE), its an ideal opportunity to reappropriate them - why would I want to tie up a computer for this (I assume thats why Lynn wrote a version for Windows Mobile) when I can use hardware that has much lower overhead in terms of power, etc.

Anyway, I only wanted to see if anyone knew how I could install onto my WM device without going through the hoops I am currently. Ultimately, the app works even though it has to run from the documents folder.

If anyone can suggest a way to get it to install 'properly', great! If not, I will keep running it 'as is' - my iGate seems to function in this state, so maybe it doesn't matter...

Glacing through the manual for the G model, I see there are different indicators, depending on which GPS is in use:
