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.

Pi sound card (was: Re: [APRSISCE] How to stop APRS-IS port from sending out beacons)

Rob Giuliano
 

Guess, this thread got moved to the rgoups.io section.
Was a conversation between Fred and I on projects.

Although a little off topic ...
Anyone interested, the discussion was about the  FE-PI AUDIO Z V2 board and the Nexus DR-X (http://wb7fhc.com/nexus-dr-x.html) interface board to connect 2 radios to a Pi through DireWolf or other applications.

Sorry for the confusion.

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

That link is already 'open' here.

what my question relates to is: WHERE in the APRSIS32 program running, do I actually type in a filter I may craft?

unless I am imbecilic, I see no place on the Link telling me where to "Add Filter" ..

I don't at the moment need anyone to tell me what to type in but where to type it in.

You can them customize your own filters to do exactly what you want. 

Try reverse engineering the filter you posted to determine what it is doing.

Re: APRSIS settings for ISS

Justin Cherington
 

Are you just wanting to beacon it? Or do you want to become a satgate? 


for beaconing you’ll want a path only of “ARISS”. No additional path is needed nor wanted. You’re already on the 145.825 frequency so there’s nothing else to change except beacon interval. You don’t want it set to automatically send out packets, just do it manually as the ISS is overhead, and do it sparingly.

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

Komkit Listisard
 

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


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

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

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.

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.
