Re: Anyone using a TNC and have it working?

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

"Local" is within 2 used hops, regardless of the n in the WIDEn-N. I considered looking at that, but is a WIDE2* 2 used hops or 1? There's no way to know if it started as WIDE2-2 or WIDE2-1. So I just count the used hops and call 2 the limit. Eventually that'll be configurable by RF port.

"Recent" is heard via some RF port within the last 30 minutes. Again, that'll eventually be configurable.

Re: Top left rectangle

That much I knew and had already read that reference before. What I was looking for was some list of what areas actually implemented it and what they uses.

A side line of my APRS work is analyzing and visualizing nationwide APRS traffic. Sometimes it can be hard to tell the difference between an alias in a path and a station using some sort of tactical callsign. Especially up in the NorthWest.

Yes, if you disable APRS-IS, the only stations that should scroll by

Re: Self awareness feature request for /32

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

That's the intent of the Red Dot. Have you all read http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/red-dot?

The red dot and the circle interact to show how far off and in which direction an outside observer would think you are relative to where your GPS KNOWS you are. When the red dot hits the circle (Configure / Genius / Forecast Error), a new beacon is made provided it has been at least Min Time since the last one.

I'll think about what you all are asking, but currently I believe the red dot is sufficient.

Also, if you want to know if you've been digi'd, just watch the station list to see your callsign show up with a * beside it. If there's a *N, you actually heard N copies of your last position report over RF (just a * means 1).

Most clients display the last reported position, and call it good.
Xastir will try dead reckon the possible location of the station.
Watching dead reckoning in action is pretty sweet, especially when the
station in question is using SmartBeaconing, which reports changes in

If you want to make a good APRS client, it needs to do dead reckoning.
Having dead reckoning displayed against your last reported position

Re: A Question on Locked Tracking and Track Lines

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

Currently there's no provision for decaying the track lines. In fact, on the Mobile platform, I don't even timestamp the various points. On Win32, I've got the advantage of MoRAM, so I do buffer the timestamps. Right now I've got 3.589MB of track space over 91,872 allocated points on my full-feed instance of APRSIS32 (KJ4ERJ-AL). To clear that, just click Clear Track, or double-click the Odometer if you're running a GPS.

I'll add it to the list and it will probably get done about the same time as the feature to save any station's accumulated track as a GPX file. Of course, the time to retain the track will be configurable, but I'll probably default it to something like 24 hours or so.

Or, if tracking all those track points would get out of hand, just do it like uiview and display the last "X" number of segments (or positions, in the case of uiview).

I'm thinking of putting aprsisce32 on my home server, running continuously in Locked Tracking mode. I need the track lines, but for a frequently repeated route, the tracks would continuously overwrite.

I currently use uiview32 this way, and the decaying of the previous positions works well for this application.

Re: Anyone using a TNC and have it working?

kb0npw <kenny@...>
 

Man, this is sweet! I feel like an idiot now. This software does so much more than I thought! Thanks Lynn for the help.

I did realize though, that my TNC is apparently not communicating with the program. When I enable on the RF side, I see nothing at all. I'm running text mode, so maybe I will try KISS to see if that does it. Since I never was able to get UI-View to run on Win7 either, I'm not sure how this will turn out. I hope I can solve this problem, because I want to use APRSIS32 all the time. I guess I will have to hook the TNC up to the old machine to get it into KISS mode, and then try it. This com port issue has been aggravating.

played. I have it play a chime.

I have the distance set to 30 yards. So when the car is parked, no alert

It would be nice if something like this could be optionally added to the

Re: Top left rectangle

Fred Hillhouse
 

On my KPC3 digi, I trap 3-3, 4-4, 5-5, etc only as well as a KPC can do. W3-3 in my area just sucks up space. There are enough Digis to get to an I-Gate in 2 or less hops.
 
I haven't explored using APRSIS32 as a Digipeater and I-Gate. I fully intend to as my time becomes available. One topic that comes up every now and again on the OT2 forum is the potential for system abuse, like using W1-2, W2-6. It might be something to consider when you get to looking at those items.
 
I think only one local still supports RELAY which has fallen out of favor quite a while ago.
