Re: HF iGate Verification

John Brent - VA7WPN
 

Thank you,

Our intent is NOT to "SPAM the air waves" with relentless beacons, arbetrary weather, and "Smart beaconing". We are targeting the areas of Vancouver Island, and the interior of BC where there is NO cellular service, let alone any kind of repeater / igate coverage. We have looked into a LOT of other options, such as satellite communications / APRS, and portable repeaters / crossbanding. The testing we did was only helpful when we were witin 50km of "Scociety" after that, the hills mountains and 150' trees killed all performance. 

Our support is for the hunters, hikers, campers, and other exploring hams. The swaths of remote unserviced areas in BC alone are amazing, and huge. We all want to experiance that, with some kind of safety net / communications capability. We belive this is one of the better options. Its not nefarious.

Re: HF iGate Verification

James Ewen
 

One should probably define what gating from IS-RF consists of before condemning  the activity.

I-gates by definition should be a two way communications gateway. They should take the activity heard on RF and gate it to the APRS-IS network. They also are supposed to gate APRS message packets (note, APRS message packets, not any other packets) heard locally on the APRS-is stream to RF, and also a single courtesy position packet. This allows an APRS station sending APRS message packet to a station beyond local RF range, and to be able to get a response back, along with a single location packet from the destination station.

What some software authors have done is provided a capability to arbitrarily move traffic from the APRS-IS to the RF network based on the gate operator desires. This is where we can end up with problems because the APRS-IS traffic levels far exceed the capacity of the 1200 baud, VHF system, let alone the 300 baud HF system.

An i-gate set up to gate packets from RF to IS, and to support IS-RF messaging shouldn't flood the RF network and cause detrimental degradation of the RF network. The RF users are the ones in control of the requests for packets to be gated back to RF, as well as stations looking to send APRS messages to stations on HF only.

Yes, there are those who will disregard the system health as a whole... obviously the world needs to know the weather conditions in my backyard every 5 minutes, and to ensure they do, I will transmit at 50 watts through a high gain antenna using WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2 so that I can ensure that my packets make it onto the APRS-IS network...

If one wants to get after people abusing the APRS network, how about going after all the people using WIDE1-1 as a path element who are operating at 5 watts or higher? They are going to be much more of a detriment to the APRS network than an HF i-gate that will send an APRS message and courtesy position packet to the 300 baud RF network only upon request of a station operating on HF.

Just a caution that one needs to ensure they know what the issue at hand truly is before spending too much time arguing their side.

I would ask John Brent VA7WPN what they intend with their RF-IS gateway.

I understand that its bad form and we ARE looking for alternatives for this, such as JS8Call (But it has NOT way for an APRS message to be replied too), CCW Messenger is dead in the water, and not everyone has $1200 for a PACTOR modem to do Robust Packet from a mobile or backpack. I own a PTC-IIex, and its showing its age. Its started failing, and I have taken the precautions with new caps to fix the issues that I am having, but the techs over at SCS have indicated to me on a few occasions that it may very well be the DSP Chip that is failing, and that there ARE NO replacements, and I am not the only one who is having these issues with these ageing devices.

I have been looking high and low for a few years with the help of a number of members in the club for alternatives, we have had little to no luck. As APRS its self, does exactly what we need it for, its really the only way we can perform the tasks we need to perform without designing a whole new mode and system.

Re: HF iGate Verification

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

It is considered bad form to gate from the APRS-IS to HF.  Gating IS to 1200 baud VHF is bad enough, but gating to 300 baud HF can really get you into trouble.

There is some support group that discusses such topics, but the actual name escapes me at the moment.  You might want to task on the aprssig mailing list.

 Tones : 200 hz spacing centered on 1700kz

Were not using PSK, but it is possible and we may be implimenting it if testing at our location proves to be a success.

Glenn,

Okay, got you.  Even though, I am sending out info (PACKETS)  to APRS IS basically everything I sent eventually get there. Just sometime other people beat me to it? Therefore ARPS IS treated my late arrival packets as a dupe and tossed in the thrash?

Okay, got it. Now that made sense as I have no idea, to me I keeps sending packets out but I have no way to see if they even got there.  

Thank you for the note.

On the IS system, it’s a matter of who gates first, ABC vs DEF.. Any additional reports of a station(XYZ), is considered a duplicate

and is dismissed. So it’s all a matter of timing.

Well hello there.  Thank you for you info.  Yes, I can see my station showing on aprs.fi after I sent out my position.  What I do not understand for sure if what I am seeing in the iGate log within APRSIS32 program.  

Looking at the log my bald head is spinning :)  What does that even mean? I see a lot of packets scrolling by does that mean I sent what I heard to the APRS IS?
 
Example below, I just do not know how to translate to the language that I could understand.

Like that first line.   Is W5ODJ-5 sending out a position report and KV3B-1 digipeating to W3KIT-10 and then W3KIT-10 place W5ODJ-5 on the map (APRS IS)?

Dark Mode

Any way to set dark mode is APRSISCE on Windows 7?

Re: How do I verify if iGate is setting up correctly?

Glenn O'Connor
 

If, for example, a station(XYZ) is Igated by your station(ABC), that same station may also be Igated by another one(DEF).

 

On the IS system, it’s a matter of who gates first, ABC vs DEF.. Any additional reports of a station(XYZ), is considered a duplicate

and is dismissed. So it’s all a matter of timing.

Thank you Glenn,  understood about RFtoIS. 

Okay, I am "sending" info to IS from RF.  At least the local log is telling me.  I got that.

How do I know what I am sending is actually get there?  Is there a place I can go see what got posted my W3KIT-10?

At least please explain what the meaning of this line.

"The key is in each line “RFtoIS”."  Does not making sense to a retarded like myself.

Well hello there.  Thank you for you info.  Yes, I can see my station showing on aprs.fi after I sent out my position.  What I do not understand for sure if what I am seeing in the iGate log within APRSIS32 program.  

Looking at the log my bald head is spinning :)  What does that even mean? I see a lot of packets scrolling by does that mean I sent what I heard to the APRS IS?
 
Example below, I just do not know how to translate to the language that I could understand.

Like that first line.   Is W5ODJ-5 sending out a position report and KV3B-1 digipeating to W3KIT-10 and then W3KIT-10 place W5ODJ-5 on the map (APRS IS)?
