if you look at aprs.fi and search for kc2ant-9 on Sept 11th and find the track from 6am until about 2pm that is all a D710AG being paired with APRSIS32 on a Win10 laptop. I had it hooked up to an internet connection to be a mobile IGate to support a special event that day. 

What you are asking can be accomplished yes.

Hi Facundo,
 
On my system transmitted packets are red and received black
 
Your transmitted packet was digipeated so system is working correctly.
 
You should see that the time in first line has a T after it and the second packet has an R after the time and the WIDE1-1 is missing indicated one hop has occurred.
 
I am using mine for 30m  hf aprs.
 
Cheers

That was my first thought as well, but your PHG also is not completely populated.   You either need to select appropriate options or remove it from your beacon text.

Hello Lynn,

Thank you for the passcode over the phone on Sunday.  I appreciate that.

I have a few questions, if you could be so kind to help me out.

Picture A:

-          How do I get rid of J3H.SH.2?  I do not know what that is or where it came from.
-          How do I get rid of the grey triangle shape just to the right of the popup window?


That is an object shape.  I don't know if you received it over RF or if you locally created it.  If click on the red plus sign, it should give you a pop-up menu.  If you then select any of the entries at the top of that menu, it will bring up additional information.  I'll need to see that information to know what it is to help you get rid of it.

-          How can I change the small computer icon at my location to say a red solid circle (or something like that)?

Select Configure / General and then click on the small PC symbol just to the left of "<Click to <Change".  Spin the buttons until you get whatever symbol you want and then Accept the dialogs.  The following diagrams might help in knowing what is available.  The top one is the Primary table symbols, and the bottom one is the Secondary table symbols.  The table in the middle shows the ASCII character that corresponds to that same place in the other two tables.

From http://wa8lmf.net/aprs/APRS_symbols.htm

Grid of the text codes used to represent APRS symbols in
        the standard position format.

Picture B:

-          How do I clear the grey oval centered around Boise?

This also appears to be an area object.  Again, click on the red plus in the center and select one of the top options in that popup to get the additional information about that station.

Please see text below:

1:Fm NJ3H To APWW11 Via WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 <UI C Pid=F0 Len=53> [23:45:05T]

@064505h4418.05N/12109.60Wl       CN94kh, Redmond, OR

 -          In the second line, after 12109.60W, there is a lower case ‘L’ being displayed.  Where could this be coming from?  It is not part of the text I entered for my grid square and city, state.

As you can see in the diagrams above, the lower-case L is the code for the "laptop" in the primary table.  The / between the N and 121 in your packet above specifies the primary table.  APRS interleaves the table/overlay and symbol selection characters between and after the Lat/Lon specification in your packet.  If you want to read more details about that, search the Internet for APRS101.pdf.

Oh, and including the gridsquare with your coordinates is a bit redundant as is the city description.

Re: Wanting local (RF) only bulletin/announcement sending capability

Re: Wanting local (RF) only bulletin/announcement sending capability

KH6CP Craig Paul
 

Thanks, Greg,

Here on Oahu many places don't have "wide open spaces" so that low power RF transmissions can be assured of "long reach".
Emergency management districts have a terrain component to them.

In my "ideal" world amateur radio district emergency coordinators would have APRS message group and bulletin group transmission capable radios.
If they had those capabilities a very power efficient method for event preparedness might go something like this:

Pre-disaster:

Via global message/group message:

Arrange wilderness protocol timings, messaging/bulletin/announcement groups and

delineations of groups and each group’s geographic district boundaries


Pending disaster: Radio/messaging checks – any last minute changes (announcements, then

closer to damaging conditions bulletins if necessary)


During disaster: Reports of utility outages/damage (beacons, objects, and group messages) toward

a common operating picture


Post-disaster: Road blockages/closures, flooding, structural damage (beacons, objects, and group

messages) toward a common operating picture


Wind-down: Announcement to groups of district debrief meetings (virtual or otherwise)


I know that a hurricane scarred US territory is using APRS bulletins to distribute weather and earthquake alerts.

Alas, only Kenwood radios have group origination capabilities. Yaesu APRS radios can properly receive group messages and bulletins/announcements.

It would be great if we had a radio-agnostic RF only method to take advantage of groups messages and bulletins/announcements.

Heck, I'd even pay for something like that!

Thoughts?

Re: GPS Enabled

Rob Giuliano
 

Sorry, but this does not really help me. 
You give me all kinds of info on the D710.  We deal with APRSIS32.
The only infomration about your configuration of APRSIS32 is
CONFIGURE
     Ports
          APRS-IS
          NMEA
This definitaly does point us to your problem.
We have been telling you to remove, delete, eliminate the NMEA port.
The only way to read the NMEA data from a GPS attached to a radio is through the radio (RF) port.

The NMEA port in APRSIS32 is only used for a GPS directly connected to the computer.
   Your GPS is connected to the radio.
You MUST - repeat - MUST delete the NMEA port from >Menu >Configure >NMEA
   There is no GPS connected directly to the computer.
Lynn will have to verify, but I think this is done by editing the XML file
Find the line in the XML that reads something like this:
   <GPSPort>COM3:4800,n,8,1</GPSPort>
and change it to read
   <GPSPort></GPSPort>


Let's go through the RF port specifics:
What is the RF port type you are using to communicate with the D710?
I need info something like this:
       KWD710(APRS)
       COMn Serial            COM3        9600,n,8,1
The the actual RF port settings:
Inline image

NOTE: GPS/NMEA is checked - That is how APRSIS32 gets the GPS dtaa from your radio (with attached GPS)

As Robert outlined below, you should NOT configure nor enable an NMEA/GPS port for passthrough.  Windows only allows each COMM port to be opened once, and the RF Port is doing that.


Please de-configure your NMEA port and make sure the GPS/NMEA checkbox is checked on your RF Port.  And then you'll also need to ensure that the RF Port's <OpenCmd>s specifically enable GPS sentences to be sent from your radio.

I believe NMEA is open means the state is trying to open the NMEA port.

Is COM3 the USB virtual port for the D710G?
  Or a different port - remember the 2 sets of data are on the same port.

Close APRSIS32 and find the APRSIS32.xml file (in the APRSIS32.exe folder).
   Open it in a text edit and search on GPS.
You should find:
     <Enables.GPS>1</Enables.GPS>
 and later in the file
    <GPSPort></GPSPort>
If the second instance has anything in it (like <GPSPort>vom3:9600,n,8,1</GPSPort>)
   delete everything between <GPSPort> and </GPSPort>

Then go down and find your <!--RFPort[#]--> port settings
If you have more than one, find the one for the D710G and check these settings:
   <Device> {your settings} </Device>
   <ProvidesNMEA>1</ProvidesNMEA>

{Your settings} will tell you what APRSIS32 uses for a COM port and the settings.  Is that COM3?

I thought you were using a GPS connected to the radio and feeding NMEA messages through the configured RF port?
    GPS/NMEA checked.
If the D710G is sending GPS data, it is on the RF port.

Do not try and configure a different port  with >Configure >Ports > NMEA.
Double check to see that iGPS is showing on the D710G display and if not, menu 500.

As I recall (Lynn can verify), the GPS data comes through as plain text.
To view it in a terminal program you would need to:
   1. Close APRSIS32 RF port from D710G (same comm port as GPS data is on
   2. Open terminal program (ComTestSerial, TeraTerm, or RealTerm  are all good free options)
   3. Set port parameters to match the D710 port settings
Yuo will see some "KISS" code, but you shoulod also see GPS messages from the radio.

I don't have either, but a friend has the "nonG" model.

Glacing through the manual for the G model, I see there are different indicators, depending on which GPS is in use:
    iGPS     => internal
    GPS     => external connected tothe 2.5 mm jack.
Menu 500 still offers GPS OUTPUT (GPS data output to PC)    Default OFF
Menu 501 SENTENCES with the most common 4 as default
Then moving up to Menu 6xx
   602 has key setting
   603 more settings
   604 Another ON/OFF toggle, but for APRS.
          I wonder if you have need to turn this OFF to allow raw GPS to the PC.
          Some systems allow APRS as WAYPOINTS only and won't send raw GPS strings when requesting APRS output.
          I can't say fro this Kenwood.

I didn't see anything that indicated you couldn't output the internal GPS data

Robert,

Burt indicates that he is using a "G" model 710 with the *internal* GPS.

The reason I point this out is that I have a 710 and was considering upgrading to the 710G at one point, but I thought I read somewhere that with the "G" model you cannot have the internal GPS data pass through to the serial port, and that pass through only works for an externally connected GPS unit on the "G" model.

Can anyone confirm whether this is true or not?

Like I said in my other email the ANSRVR is more for group chatting and announcements.  What you're looking for is built in with the bulletin system.  You could have your receiving personal setup their radios and also the computer to receive messages from we'll say a group called WXANNONC. Then anyone can send a message to that group and it will show up on the front panels of others setup to receive it.

Private to Greg,

Hi, Greg,

Here's what I have in mind for what I envision here on O'ahu.
Background: O'ahu's topography doesn't have "wide-open spaces". Sometimes we can get across one mountain range (Kaneohe to Honolulu), but not always
on 144.390, but Kaneohe can't often get to the west coast of O'ahu.

So, what I have in mind for bulletins/announcements is that each area with no mountain visibility will have its own bulletin group.
Should a tropical system come through and "shut us down" the bulletin groups will let us "broadcast" announcements (water truck coming tomorrow)
and bulletins (water truck is in location X now).

So, not having access to ANSRVR, if I understand correctly, means I'm out of luck with regards to the announcement/bulletin drop down to populate
the group fields.

I'm trying to get away from people who would need to broadcast announcements/bulletins to have to have a Kenwood.
Then I could take advantage of Direwolf 1.7's fx.25 for better signal reach.

Any ideas welcomed. Thanks!

I'm accustomed to being able to send announcements and bulletins from my
Kenwoods, and was hoping that APRSIS32 would provide a similar capability
with a real (computer) keyboard!

It seems that Messages/Announcements/Bulletins talks to an internet server
elsewhere.

Is it possible to send something akin to BLNx<groupname> with APRSIS32
and have it behave as in Chapter 14 of APRS101?

If not is there any Windows program that will do this (via a soundcard modem like
Direwolf?)

Thank you!
