A) When I set the baud rate to 300 baud, it saves but when I reopen the port configuration it is set to 1200 again. I can confirm this is the same in the XML file, even if I edit the XML to be 300 baud it will revert to 1200 again.
The port setting for baud rate is a red herring.  It is not used.  The RF baud rate is completely under the control of the TNC, not APRSIS32.  This dates back to my start when I really didn't understand how it all worked.

B) Editing the XML file, when I edit it as per instructions on the instructions on the Robust Packet website for HF APRS and APRSIS32... the PTC-IIex restarts, the LED's go off, and is non responsive. How ever if I dont edit anything, it sends packets... but not at 300 baud. APRSIS32 was off when I edited the XML file.
Can you provide a link to the instructions you are following? And what port type you are specifying in APRSIS32?  I'm not familiar with the PTC-IIex, but maybe someone else is.


Any ideas what is going on?
Yeah, it's not working!  (Couldn't resist...)

APRSIS23 HF APRS & PTC-IIex

John Brent - VA7WPN
 

Good afternoon,

I am putting together an HF APRS station, or attempting to anyways. I am using a TS-2000 and SCS PTC-IIex as hardware. I am using APRSIS32 to control it all. But I am finding it not so easy to get it to work with my equipment. I will explain below.

A) When I set the baud rate to 300 baud, it saves but when I reopen the port configuration it is set to 1200 again. I can confirm this is the same in the XML file, even if I edit the XML to be 300 baud it will revert to 1200 again.

You can download APRSIS32 from the following link.  You'll likely also want to upgrade to the latest development version immediately after installing and applying your APRS-IS passcode.

This passcode will work for any -SSID (http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/doc:ssids) you choose to use.
Because it is actually the APRS-IS network passcode, it should also work with other APRS-IS client software.

Re: [EXT] Re: [APRSISCE] Using Kantronics KPC3+ with APRSIS32

I have not seen any issues with delayed KPC3+ digipeates here in Utah.  We pretty much run exclusively with KPc3+ in standalone, so no external software.

Gil,

Good suggestion, but it isn't really using a KPC-3+ as a digipeater that is an issue, but using a KPC-3+ in KISS mode with upstream software doing the digipeating.

The KPC-3+ firmware does excellent digipeating as far as I know.  Provided that the digipeating is being done completely within the device itself.

There is a well documented bug in the KPC-3+ firmware's KISS support that causes received packets to be delayed in delivery out the KISS port.  This means that any software-based digipeater (or IGate for that matter) receiving KISS packets from a KPC-3+ will be marching slowly backwards in time as the delays seem to get longer and longer until the KPC-3+ is reset.

This is will documented in an article by Hessu, the author of aprs.fi, at the following link.

http://blog.aprs.fi/2011/03/kantronics-kpc3-considered-harmful.html

Recommended reading as well as this article:

https://packet-radio.net/kantronics-kpc3-kiss-considered-harmful/

It seems that the issue may be solved by simply tying RTS and CTS together at the KPC-3+ end of the serial cable.  But getting this word out, and worse, convincing KPC-3+ owners running in KISS mode, is an ongoing challenge.

Oh, and I've seen the issue more with KISS-mode KPC-3+ devices being used with IGates than I have with digipeating.  Digipeating delays would be seen in the local RF environment as a digipeat being received long after a packet was actually transmitted.  Yes, it does happen, but on the -IS, the effects are usually much more visible.

And yes, there does seem to be a software-controlled digipeater using a KISS-mode KPC-3+ somewhere out in your neck of the woods!

When using a real TNC, there is no "correct COM port ... for PTT".  The serial port only controls protocol communication to the TNC.  The TNC's radio port handles the PTT with the radio directly, not from the computer.

Re: TOT resetting too soon

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

Set the timer to zero if you don't want it.

It is very useful for the APRS-IS port because there is a certain failure mode in TCP/IP networking that can cause one end of a connection (say the APRSIS32 end) to believe the connection is alive but the other end thinks it is gone.  The connection can stay this way for a large number of minutes (remember that TCP/IP was designed to be self-healing and provides for routing packets around gaps in the network caused by nuclear elimination of major routing nodes), and sometimes the connection never realizes that it is all gone.  At least, until the confused end tries to send a packet over the connection.

In the case of mobile data networking this condition can happen when you go in and out of cellular data coverage.  And remember that APRSIS32 started as APRSISCE on Windows Mobile phones.

The Quiet Timer is also handy for some TNC/radio combinations that can drop out of KISS mode unexpectedly.  When that happens, packets quit coming through and the Quiet Time is counted.  When it is finally exceeded, the port is disabled and re-enabled causing the <Open/CloseCmd>s to be issued that will hopefully bring the port back into the proper state.  Consider Kenwood APRS radios and KISS (not Simply(KISS)) type ports when reading this.

It can be tricky to determine a suitable Quiet Timer for your APRS RF environment to avoid resetting the port unnecessarily, but that's the fun of the hobby.

But again, if you find it to be interfering with something, just set it to zero to disable it.

But I would like to know more details of your setup and what interference you are seeing!

I hate to say it, but none of that seems to apply to APRSIS32?

7.64 is not a version number of APRSIS32.  Versions are date and time stamps.

Not sure what a "Kenwood rept" is, and Port one?  Kenwoods typically call them A and B, don't they?

"RF on the input"?  The input of what?  Unless "rept" is an abbreviation for Repeater?

APRSIS32 has a "Quiet Time", but not a "Time Out Timer"?  Is that what you meant?

But the Quiet Time only serves to reset the connection to a TNC in the event that no packets are received within the specified time.

And AFAIK, the Quiet Time does not have any bugs.  If reception times out, it waits the full timeout again before resetting the port.  Unless, of course, a packet is received on that port in the meantime.

Of course, it might be that this message was supposed to be directed to a Kenwood radio support group instead of APRSISCE?

We are running  ver 7.64 with a Kenwood rept on Port one ONLY.   Yesterday we encountered RF on the input that would not disappear.  the Time Out Timer (set for 300 sec) did its job and dropped the transmitter.
However even though the signal had not dropped the TOT was reset after about 10 sec (actually set for 15 sec & COS drop)and the transmitter was reactivated.  Any suggestions?

Fortunately we found the source of the RF and turned it off.
