That just proves that you can't please everyone... 8)

The Kenwood users like to complain because they can't see themselves
on the radio. I keep telling them to look down, and at the very least
they should see their shoes!

I guess the best answer is to have a setting which would allow
"self-awareness". That would allow one to see themselves or not as
they see fit.

One good thing about seeing your own callsign in the heard list, is
that it makes you aware of how much load you are placing on the APRS
network. If you see your own callsign too much for your own liking,
back off your beacon rate.

Change the lat/long that you have associated with your station to
match where you would like your icon placed.

It's pretty simple, if you don't like where it is, pick it up and move
it. I had a look along Blue Cypress Drive, but I don't think any real
ham radio operators live on that street... I couldn't find a tower
anywhere! 8)

It looks like your PSK station was a little lost too, as it is located
in the backyard of a house on Buttercup Dr.

How are you defining your station location?

Re: Using TT4 with iPaq HX2750 and Garmin eTrex Summit

Colin Catlin
 

That sounds good Lynn, it will at least work, if not totally ideal.

If I do some fancy routing of the GPS data will APRSIS cope with it?,
I'm wondering if routing the NMEA to the PDA when the Rig isn't either Transmitting or Receiving.
So one second the PDA would be getting NMEA data from the GPS the next APRS data from the TT4 on the same COM port.
Would that work?

You'd be able to get by with a single serial connection from the TT4 to

its own position because it would have no GPS. You'd just keep it
Tracking / Locked and Tracking / Center on the TT4 -SSID. The map would
then jump with each beacon instead of smoothly scrolling as it does when
you have a local GPS.

Re: PocketPC 2003 SE revisited

David Tse
 

That would be so great! Frugal hams rejoice! :-) . Got a e805 around here as well.

(correction) Yes, it should be called Windows Mobile 2003 SE (PocketPC is for 2002 and before), I don't know why M$ kept changing the names: Windows CE, Palm PC (but cancelled due to treat of lawsuit from Palm), Handheld PC, Pocket PC, Windows Mobile, Windows Phone (I guess no more devices on 7 platform without a phone?).

I digress.

That would be great. Some apps still support 2003, such as Sling Player Mobile, it works with my e830 very well.

One interesting note about older devices is that many have either serial port, or serial port capable, or can add serial port via Compact Flash adapter, or USB-serial adapter. Newer devices will have to use a Bluetooth Serial adapter on the other side to get serial I/O functionality. I am still trying to find a low price on those Bluetooth to Serial adapter.

David

So it won't run (at least not this version). I guess it must be Windows Mobile 5.0 or above then.

Attention APRSISCE/32 IGate Operators!

You NEED to upgrade to 2010/03/27 Release via About's download!

While testing other new features, I discovered that the IGate code was
retransmitting every message received over RF back out over RF as a 3rd
party packet. The new release only does this for messages received from
-IS for which the destination station was recently heard over RF. Thank
goodness for message logs!

Here's what else is in this release. Some of it is still in progress,
but I wanted to get the IGate fix out.

Note: This release is only available via the About auto-download.

MAJOR BUGFIX: If you're running as an IGate, the program was gating
messages received over RF back out via the SAME RF! This is fixed to
only transmit messages heard from -IS, not RF.

Corrected timestamp in Telemetry popup to be local time instead of GMT

Clear residual course/speed display in station popup if most recent
packet didn't contain one. Calculated speed will still display between
position updates.

Record and recall last known altitude () in XML configuration
file. This will allow a momentary GPS position to be remembered and
used when GPS is disabled. You can also manually edit this to set a
fixed position altitude. If you drag the map and hit Transmit, the
altitude probably goes back to zero.

Internally define telemetry even if disabled. Disabling telemetry only
disables transmission, not internal tracking and definition. (You'll
soon have a local battery graph!)

Add Configure / Beacon submenu to turn on and off components of the
beacon. "Why" adds the Transmit Pressure that triggered the beacon.

Simplified internal handling of many of the Enables. Let me know if I
broke anything with the check-marks.

Reorganize packet information extractor in preparation for better
message handling - Again, let me know if anything broke!

The following Message Group functionality relies on filters from APRS-IS
that aren't behaving as I expected them. It may be that true message
groups will only work on the RF side in the end, but I've got more
clarification requests in to Pete Lovell (author of javAPRSSrvr, the -IS
core).

"Group" messages per spec (ALL QST CQ APRSIS-CE - aprs101.pdf Page 72)
(Julian G4ILO)

(I'm planning to have the client always capture and display messages
addressed to "APRSIS-CE". and/or "APRSIS-32" (both will do both) just
like all Kenwoods display messages addressed to "KW" - see page 73 (83
in reader) of aprs101.pdf. I'll also be adding ALL, QST, and CQ per the
spec).

Sending messages to any defined "Group" automatically disables Ack and
won't go into Pending Messages nor retry (If it's truly a group, noone
will ack anyway!)

Allow the configuration of other "promiscuous" callsigns for which
messages would also be received to support upgraded callsigns (Colin
M6XSD 2E0XSD)

Support user-configurable xxxxup>. Messages
addressed to these callsigns will be received and displayed but not
notified nor acked. You can use this for promiscuously receiving
messages from other callsigns, hopefully your own upgraded calls!
Callsigns are complete and must include -SSIDs to match.

Note that for many of these new messaging features to work, you need to
add t/m (DON'T do this yet!!!) to your filter or have the appropriate
calls as buddies (THIS works). I'm still working on that one... t/m
will give you a stack of calls at 0,0.

If you were zoomed in quite tightly, I could see the color change as it scrolled, or if you weren't receiving many stations. In all prior versions, the color of the station scrolling window was based on the callsign's most recent position. It is now based on where that station was when the entry was put in the list. This means that you'll see your own station change color as it ages and you move away from where you were. With my 180 mile (1800 tenths) range filter, my scroller never slows down enough for me to notice that.

Second, in the desk top version I'm also seeing my call (N8PU-20) several
times in the scrolling window of calls heard.
If you are within range of the home station's coordinates, it will receive the beacons. Also, since you have Telemetry Enabled (I looked at http://aprs.fi/?c=raw&call=N8PU-12), telemetry packets may also be delivered, especially if you are tracking the -12 call from the -20 instance. Check out "Telemetry" on the Station popup of -12 or the "Me" on either station, although I've improved "Me"'s Telemetry definitions for the next release.

In the latest versions am I supposed to be seeing this OR did I miss a
setting? Like others I'm enjoying the fruits of your work, THANKS.
Sounds to me like everything is WAD (Working As Designed).

The part you've all been waiting for is:

Configure / Metric! Altitude, Distance, and Temperature (for the future).

Screen / Altitude - Adds Altitude to the tracked centered station and track. Great for balloons and airplanes!

Telemetry definition parsing and display. Select Telemetry from the station popup menu. You can also View / Telemetry to locate stations that send telemetry.

Monitor free space on the OSMPath drive and shut down fetcher if it drops below a configurable limit (default 8MB). There is no obvious indication of the fetcher shutdown, however.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/aprsisce/files/APRSISCE6P100325.zip

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/aprsisce/files/APRSIS32100325.zip

Here's what's new in the APRSISCE6P100325.zip and APRSIS32100325.zip

Support a new Screen / Altitude that adds altitude to the centered station and each of it's track points. Turning on Altitude turns on Labels automatically. Turning off Labels also turns off Altitude.

Add a new View / Telemetry filter to only show stations that have transmitted telemetry.

Support "Telemetry" in the Station Popup Menu which displays the most recently received Telemetry values. PARM, UNIT, EQNS, and BITS are used if they have been captured for the station (rare).

Put a progress bar on loading Geocaches so it doesn't appear to hang so long (Win32 is FAST compared to Windows Mobile!)

Support ?APRST or ?PING? to respond with the path taken to get from the requester to me.

Change APWx01 to APWx02 for Telemetry improvements and display.

Change <Enables.Labels> to <View.Labels>. Change <TelemetryXxxx> to <Telemetry.Xxxxx>. If you had these customized, you'll need to re-set them with the new version.

Added <Telemetry.DefHours> to be how long between transmissions of the telemetry definition, Defaults to 24 hours. Disabling and Re-Enabling Telemetry will clear this for retransmission.

Parse and record telemetry definitions in PARM, UNIT, EQNS, and BITS messages from/to the same station. All received definitions are stored in the XML file (<TelemetryDefinition>). They may move in the future to a separate file.

Add leading zeros to Telemetry packet to meet spec.

Fix interpretation of the Yeasu FT-350m signature for Platform. Add "future" Kenwood Platforms (http://aprs.org/aprs12/mic-e-types.txt).

Obsolete (or changed) XML configuration file elements are now removed (or converted) automatically. This is important as the Telemetry definitions promise to get large, especially on a full feed.

Are you ready for this? Support <View.Metric.Distance> and <View.Metric.Altitude> in the XML config. The former switches from Miles (0) to KiloMeters (1). The latter from Feet (0) to Meters (1). There's also a <View.Metric.Temperature> which will switch from F (0) to C (1) when I get around to parsing temperature. If you see any strange values that appear that I didn't catch the conversion, please let me know! (Julian G4ILO and a cast of (seemingly) thousands!)

The new Metric settings also show up under Configure / Metric / ... Configure is now Configure / General. Other sub-sets will move here eventually.

Move Map Orientation options from Screen / Map... to Configure / Orientation...

Add direct access to Genius, AGW, KISS, Text, NMEA configuration via the new expanded Configure menu. Also, the corresponding Enables are now dynamic and don't need a restart. If you deconfigure a port that is running, it is automatically stopped and disabled.

Free Space Limit (<OSM.MinMBFree> default 8MB) beyond which Tile Fetcher shuts itself down (KA4EPS) - It also displays the free space on the OSMPath drive at the bottom of the OSM Map Tiles popup (double-click empty spot on map).

Re: Using TT4 with iPaq HX2750 and Garmin eTrex Summit

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

Colin,

One option with the TT4 is to connect the GPS to it via a serial port and let it do all of your normal position beaconing. You can turn on PKTOCOM to have it also send its beacons out to APRSISCE/32 via the KISS port. APRSISCE/32 can then do all of your display, IGating (if you have Internet), and messaging (with Messages / My Messages allowing display of those directed to the TT4 -SSID).

You'd be able to get by with a single serial connection from the TT4 to the PDA, the TT4 would be able to operate standalone without the PDA, and yet you'd have the features of APRSISCE/32 available when you connect it.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/aprsisce/files/APRSIS32100325.zip

Here's what's new in the APRSISCE6P100325.zip and APRSIS32100325.zip

Support a new Screen / Altitude that adds altitude to the centered
station and each of it's track points. Turning on Altitude turns on
Labels automatically. Turning off Labels also turns off Altitude.

Add a new View / Telemetry filter to only show stations that have
transmitted telemetry.

Support "Telemetry" in the Station Popup Menu which displays the most
recently received Telemetry values. PARM, UNIT, EQNS, and BITS are used
if they have been captured for the station (rare).

Put a progress bar on loading Geocaches so it doesn't appear to hang so
long (Win32 is FAST compared to Windows Mobile!)

Support ?APRST or ?PING? to respond with the path taken to get from the
requester to me.

Change APWx01 to APWx02 for Telemetry improvements and display.

Change <Enables.Labels> to <View.Labels>. Change <TelemetryXxxx> to
<Telemetry.Xxxxx>. If you had these customized, you'll need to re-set
them with the new version.

Added <Telemetry.DefHours> to be how long between transmissions of the
telemetry definition, Defaults to 24 hours. Disabling and Re-Enabling
Telemetry will clear this for retransmission.

Parse and record telemetry definitions in PARM, UNIT, EQNS, and BITS
messages from/to the same station. All received definitions are stored
in the XML file (<TelemetryDefinition>). They may move in the future to
a separate file.

Add leading zeros to Telemetry packet to meet spec.

Fix interpretation of the Yeasu FT-350m signature for Platform. Add
"future" Kenwood Platforms (http://aprs.org/aprs12/mic-e-types.txt).

Obsolete (or changed) XML configuration file elements are now removed
(or converted) automatically. This is important as the Telemetry
definitions promise to get large, especially on a full feed.

Are you ready for this? Support <View.Metric.Distance> and
<View.Metric.Altitude> in the XML config. The former switches from
Miles (0) to KiloMeters (1). The latter from Feet (0) to Meters (1).
There's also a <View.Metric.Temperature> which will switch from F (0) to
C (1) when I get around to parsing temperature. If you see any strange
values that appear that I didn't catch the conversion, please let me
know! (Julian G4ILO and a cast of (seemingly) thousands!)

The new Metric settings also show up under Configure / Metric / ...
Configure is now Configure / General. Other sub-sets will move here
eventually.

Move Map Orientation options from Screen / Map... to Configure /
Orientation...

Add direct access to Genius, AGW, KISS, Text, NMEA configuration via the
new expanded Configure menu. Also, the corresponding Enables are now
dynamic and don't need a restart. If you deconfigure a port that is
running, it is automatically stopped and disabled.

Free Space Limit (<OSM.MinMBFree> default 8MB) beyond which Tile Fetcher
shuts itself down (KA4EPS) - It also displays the free space on the
OSMPath drive at the bottom of the OSM Map Tiles popup (double-click
empty spot on map).

Re: Using TT4 with iPaq HX2750 and Garmin eTrex Summit

Colin Catlin
 

Thanks Steve,

I don't have the TT4 yet but have the rest.

I was hoping to avoid a Bluetooth GPS (I do haveone I use with my phone).

I could use another I guess but the Garmin seems to work farbetter than my existing Bluetooth.

My other option is a bluetooth adapter for the Garmin, if they are still available.

Thanks for the offer & advice, I will giveit some more thought.


73,
Colin.

my latest bluetooth GPS has EGNOS (WAAS to those in the USA) and is the size of of a slightly large memory stick.

Hi again All,

Since no one has replied, do anyone have any thoughts on this combination (TT4, iPaq & eTrex)?
My concern is the iPaq only having one real COM port.
If the general concensus is that this won't work I was wondering if I could get around it by switching the data into the iPaq. So some of the time it gets the NMEA direct from the eTrex instead of the TT4, anyone haveanythoughtson that?

Re: New Release - Altitude, Metric, Telemetry, and MORE!

Steve <sbd64000@...>
 

It seems to stick. It goes if I restart though obviously.

Just checked and it does not seem to beacon the alt without the GPS connected, so it's just the label that sticks.

 

Still trying to find a way to get my phone on aprs a j2e app or even a script that would read the tracking from the webpage I have that tracks me as a cludge. (3dtracking and a script to create a page on my website)

if anyone knows of any thing.

It won't. At least, if it does, I'll be completely surprised! It might
while the client is open, but on a restart, it should go back to zero.
Good guess though!

Here's what's new in the APRSISCE6P100325.zip and APRSIS32100325.zip

Support a new Screen / Altitude that adds altitude to the centered
station and each of it's track points. Turning on Altitude turns on
Labels automatically. Turning off Labels also turns off Altitude.

Add a new View / Telemetry filter to only show stations that have
transmitted telemetry.

Support "Telemetry" in the Station Popup Menu which displays the most
recently received Telemetry values. PARM, UNIT, EQNS, and BITS are used
if they have been captured for the station (rare).

Put a progress bar on loading Geocaches so it doesn't appear to hang so
long (Win32 is FAST compared to Windows Mobile!)

Support ?APRST or ?PING? to respond with the path taken to get from the
requester to me.

Change APWx01 to APWx02 for Telemetry improvements and display.

Change to . Change to
. If you had these customized, you'll need to re-set
them with the new version.

Added > to be how long between transmissions of the
telemetry definition, Defaults to 24 hours. Disabling and Re-Enabling
Telemetry will clear this for retransmission.

Parse and record telemetry definitions in PARM, UNIT, EQNS, and BITS
messages from/to the same station. All received definitions are stored
in the XML file (on>). They may move in the future to
a separate file.

Add leading zeros to Telemetry packet to meet spec.

Fix interpretation of the Yeasu FT-350m signature for Platform. Add
"future" Kenwood Platforms (http://aprs.org/aprs12/mic-e-types.txt).

Obsolete (or changed) XML configuration file elements are now removed
(or converted) automatically. This is important as the Telemetry
definitions promise to get large, especially on a full feed.

Are you ready for this? Support Distance> and
Altitude> in the XML config. The former switches from
Miles (0) to KiloMeters (1). The latter from Feet (0) to Meters (1).
There's also a Temperature> which will switch from F (0) to
C (1) when I get around to parsing temperature. If you see any strange
values that appear that I didn't catch the conversion, please let me
know! (Julian G4ILO and a cast of (seemingly) thousands!)

The new Metric settings also show up under Configure / Metric / ...
Configure is now Configure / General. Other sub-sets will move here
eventually.

Move Map Orientation options from Screen / Map... to Configure /
Orientation...

Add direct access to Genius, AGW, KISS, Text, NMEA configuration via the
new expanded Configure menu. Also, the corresponding Enables are now
dynamic and don't need a restart. If you deconfigure a port that is
running, it is automatically stopped and disabled.

Free Space Limit ( default 8MB) beyond which Tile Fetcher
shuts itself down (KA4EPS) - It also displays the free space on the
OSMPath drive at the bottom of the OSM Map Tiles popup (double-click
empty spot on map).
