3rd line in init code for SCS-tracker

macclad44@...
 

Hi, I noticed this:

<OpenCmd>^027~!!1</OpenCmd>
<OpenCmd>^064^075!!0</OpenCmd>
<CloseCmd>^192^255^192~!!1</CloseCmd>
<CloseCmd>^027~!!1</CloseCmd>

Julian, G4ILO

I get the escape, @K, but what does the third line do? It's part of closing the command but I don't really understand what a lower left box, no backspace, and lower left box (192,255,192) actually do?  Is there a reference somewhere that clarifies this? It's pretty crytpic to a noob like me.

Thanks.

Hi, Robert, what are the ^192^255^192 command doing? I"m unfamiliar with them.  Thanks.

Thank Lynn.  There's something a bit fuzzy about what command enables RPR mode in the SCS-Tracker (presumably done using something between the "cmd_open" and "cmd_closed brackets 'cauise there's nothing I can find in their remote commands that calls it out). I'm trying to determine  how to force RP300 vs. AFSK 300 ..  I'll just try it as is when I get home and listen for the beacon.  They're pretty easy to recognize over anything else out there.

I have another SCS-Tracker in my car that I've wired to my ICOM 7000 and one of those magmount GPS NMEA devices and used it successfully before when there were more abundant
Robust Packet gateways.  Hint:  Robust Packet was MUCH better at tracking when I drove into the boonies than VHF APRS could ever hope to be.
Thanks.

Pan and zoom so that your desired location is centered on the cross-hairs.  Then right-click the map at that point, select the coordinates cascade at the bottom and then "Move ME HERE".

APRSIS32 doesn't discriminate anything.  It relies on the TNC to do that and deliver a decoded packet.

OK thanks for that Lynn! 

Next, how to I set I HOME location?  I tried but got lost. On the map I just bounce around. Again, this is for a gateway and I'm not going to be moving.

Lastly, how does APRSISCE-32 discriminate between 300 baud rtty and 300 baud Robust packet?  I though I kinda could tell it is done automatically
but no commands in the Kiss mode seem to set it .. it's a bit fuzzy to me.
Thanks.

If it was properly formatted and sent to @APRSIS, then it would be gated to the APRS-IS like any other packet by Jordan's back-end.  APRSIS32 only generates local objects from the ALL.TXT scraping.

Good to know and glad it's working.  It gave me an excuse to fire up and monitor JS8Call again for a while!  That is an amazing mode on 40m.

The RF baud in APRSIS32's port configuration dialog is a red herring.  it has no effect on anything.

Yes I cut and pasted the stuff needed between (opencmd) and (closed CMD) but so far it doesn't seem to update my baud rate (should be 300 for RP)..but it keeps displaying 1200 baud and I can't edit it. 


Do I need any more to specify Robust packet? and exclude normal 300 baud?  That confuses me.

Re: crossband with 2 meters and 70cm question

Gordon Taylor
 

Hi all,

                This might not be the right thing to say in this group but if your aim is have multiple RF ports and be able to cross band repeat those ports have a look at UI-View.

I am running UI-View with the AGW packet engine and have HF, VHF and UHF TNC’s all connected to the one instance of UI-View and can selectively cross band repeat the ports.  i.e everything on HF goes to the VHF and UHF ports but not the other way.  VHF and UHF repeat each other.

 

 

Regards

 

Gordon VK4VP

 


Re: crossband with 2 meters and 70cm question

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

The stations received from the other instance will not look like RF to the receiving instance.  You'll need to View / All to see them.

I'm not familiar with UZ7HO's log windows and I'm not sure what you mean by "double" digipeats?

Please view and enable the Transmit trace log in APRSIS32 and/or the Port(<YourPortName>) log to see what APRSIS32 thinks it is doing.

Note that there is NO duplicate suppression in this chain, so if a station's single packet is copied multiple times, maybe direct and/or through different digipeaters, it will likely transmit a copy of EACH of those receptions on the "other" band.

Hi Lynn,

Thanks for the walk-thru. I followed it exactly, and crossband is partially working.  Both radios digipeat each other's received beacons on 70cm and 2m, but each APRSis32 instance map shows only stations on their respective band.  I have "View" on both set to RF-All, since our local is RF-only.  Both instances are the latest 2020/12/30.  Here's a screenshot.  KP3FT-4 is 70cm (there's only two of us on that band for the moment), and KP3FT-2 is 2m.  Another screenshot shows the 2m instance transmitting "double" digipeats (the 70cm instance is also doing the same thing).

Re: crossband with 2 meters and 70cm question

I suggest you run both radios on the Pi and use Direwolf to digipeat from one radio to the other. Connect one instance of APRSISCE to the Pi through the networked AGW interface. Now you have control of both radios with one client.

Hi all,

I found some references to using APRSis32 for crossband, but haven't figured out some of the specifics.  I already have two instances of APRSis32 running, one on a 2m radio, the other on a separate 70cm radio.  They both work fine when testing with other stations miles away.  What I can't figure out, is how can I get 2m to re-transmit a packet that is received on 70cm, and vis-versa, with RF-only?  The 2m is using UZ7HO's Soundmodem with one instance of APRSis32 on a Win10 notebook.  The 70cm is using Direwolf on a Raspberry, ported to a second instance of APRSis32 on the Win10 notebook.  I saw a mention of using the "e/" filter, but not sure how to utilize it.  Thanks for any help, 73
