Re: How to stop APRS-IS port from sending out beacons

Lynn,
Yes, I only have one instance running as W3KIT.  APRSIS is running on my old XP laptop and nothing else is running beside UZ7HO SoundModem.

I will try the "NoGate ME" option and see how it go.

Thanks, Kit W3KIT

Look at your raw packets. The info page may only show information on the last received packet, not just posits.

https://aprs.fi/?c=raw&call=W3KIT

But I do still see some posits with TCPIP in the path.  Are you sure you only have one instance running as W3KIT? 

You may also want to check "NoGate ME" on your RF port.  Otherwise if you copy a digipeat of your packet, it will gate it to the APRS-IS and the IGate may modify the path to TCPIP* since the packet source and the APRS-IS login match.  This is done so that others will realize that your station has APRS-IS access so they don't unnecessarilyl gate messages to RF when you can pick them up directly.

Glenn, thanks for the info.

I just look at aprs.fi again, about 10 min ago.  Now aprs.fi is showing the RF path,  not often though.  Most of the time it will show TCPIP and yes, I did unchecked the beacon in APRS-IS port setting. ummm

I should be on the map.   https://aprs.fi/info/a/W3KIT

I just unchecked my APRSIS beacon box. It seems I operate much as you do.

 

I don’t currently see your symbol however on either aprs.fi or aprsdirect.com.

Examine my station-KF0ED.

Subject: [APRSISCE] How to stop APRS-IS port from sending out beacons

 

Hi folks,
I have both RF and IS ports enabled.  I unchecked "Beacon" under APRS-IS port configuration. 

Most of the time when I checked the APRS.FI I noticed    "W3KIT>APWW11 via TCPIP*,qAC,T2MEXICO"   or something similar instead of RF digipeating path.

I was looking at the Soundmodem screen,  I did see the digipeater acknowledged my "RF beacon"  and did not collided with other packets,  but APRS.FI somehow is showing I am beaconing via TCPIP instead of RF.

Been reading,  I understand if I unchecked "Beacon" under APRS-IS port configuration, APRSIS32 would not reporting my position to the server over the TCPIP.

Is there another settings that I may have missed? Or some sort of a filter that I could use.

Thanks,  Kit W3KIT

APRSIS settings for ISS

A few of us in the Vancouver BC area have been pushing APRS. Lately ISS is been coming up. Is there any setting in Path or anywhere else. I'm using a Mobilink TNC3 with a cheap HT normally on 144.390. I've moved to 145.850.

Hi Robert, thanks for your reply. I see it in the scroller and I've only seen in the last month or so
even before I updated to the new version. My beacon is digi'd so it doesn't seem to upset anything.

Kenwood D710A running APRSIS32 on Windows 10 tablet with serial to bluetooth adapter

Anthony Mascola
 

I have been trying to use a US Converters blutronium serial to Bluetooth adapter as I am trying to run a Windows 10 tablet that I can move easily in and out of my Jeep to run APRS to support activities with Search and Rescue, scouting and coordinating while driving off road on overlanding trips.  The vehicle is a daily driver and I need to remove the tablet so the vehicle is not broken into.  I would like to be able to use Bluetooth as the tablet has no serial connector or full size USB port.

 

So far connecting via Bluetooth has been really challenging.  Things are definitely not stable and are very hit or miss for me and I have been trying various things when I have time over the past year or so.  I was able to run APRSIS32 but sometimes I would not be able to connect to the TNC at all or I would lose my GPS feed (which I am hoping is now fixed with the latest development version) or the program would crash and things are inconsistent.  I was never able to run Winlink Express at all as I can’t open the COM port from the tablet with the same settings that worked intermittently with APRSIS32.  I am wondering if it has something to do with the way I have configured the bluetooth serial port which gets complicated.  

 

Transceiver: Kenwood D710A

Bluetooth to Serial Port adapter: US Converters Blutronium

                Settings: COM port (selected matching COM port showing in Windows device manager), 9600 baud, 8N1, hardware flow control, DCE selected via DIP switch settings

Tablet: Windows 10 Toshiba Encore WT8-A32, Windows serial port settins: 8N1, 9600 baud, Hardware flow control set

Software: Terminal emulator program Access Port, APRSIS32, Winlink Express, SARTrack with serial port set to matching settings

 

When I connect to the terminal emulator program Access Port with the following settings (matching COM port, baud rate, 8N1, Flow Control RTS/CTS, CTS output control enabled, DTR control enabled, RTS control handshake, see figures 1 and 2 attached)  and turn on the TNC I can read everything fine that is being sent from the TNC to the terminal emulator but when I try to send any data via the command prompt, I get no response and nothing back.

 

If I do the same settings with the RT Systems serial to USB cable (with the exception that I don’t have to specify DCE/DTE with the wire cable) I can both send and receive data from the TNC just fine.   There is some setting that is not quite right which prevents my being able to send commands and have the TNC receive and respond to them with the above. 

Has anyone successfully configured a Windows 10 tablet to work with their D710 via bluetooth?  Do you have any idea what I might be doing wrong?  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 

 

 

 

 

 


Re: Pixelated Map

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

The only reason I can think of for a pixelated map is that you were zooming in and the tile server was unavailable causing APRSIS32 to stretch further out zooms to have something to display.  If it happens again, zoom out and see if the pixelation clears up and comes back when you zoom back in.  Then make sure you can access the tile server that you are configured to use in your Tile Set.

Sometimes the OSM Trace Log can help you know if there are errors occurring, but there is sometimes an overwhelming amount of data in that log, especially when it is enabled.

More MBTile Fixes (Dev: 2020/05/19 21:42)

Hopefully final fix for MBTiles databases that fail to open.

Add counters for various reasons for fetching tiles to the Tile status popup (double-click empty space on the map).

Use PRAGMA application_id = 0x4d504258 to stamp newly created MBTiles files as MBTiles tilesets - Ref; https://www.sqlite.org/src/artifact?ci=trunk&filename=magic.txt
