In the About box it should show a Built: date/timestamp.  If it is 2012, you are not on the latest development.  Follow the instructions at:

http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/doc:development-version

Note: In Development mode, it will say "Current Development version verified".

Hi !

 

First, try to disable APRS-IS (from Enable menu) and check if RF part starts to work.

Subject: [APRSISCE] Getting APRSIS TO tx/rx on RF

 

Hi
I have read a lot of posts on here but cannot find one that answers my question.
I have been using APRSIS for a long time on a Win7 machine with out any problems, and decided to upgrade to Win10, so I 
downloaded and installed the program on the Win10 Pro machine and the program runs ok, I am receiving stations via the internet
but cannot receive or transmit via RF, I am using the same hardware as before but still no joy.
I am running a FT4700, with a Siskin Tiny2 on Com1
Not getting any error mesages, but just no RF, I have configured the rf port and enabled 

Any help please

Steve

Re: Getting APRSIS TO tx/rx on RF

Ok, what version of APRSIS32 are you running?  If you freshly downloaded it and haven't yet set it for development mode, you'll want to do that.

http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/doc:development-version

Once running the latest development version, go to View / Logs / Port(<YourPortName>) and enable it.  Then disable the RF port and enable it again and see what the trace log shows as packets are received.

I don't think you mentioned what port type you're using in APRSIS32?  If the TNC is locked in KISS mode, then it should be Simply(KISS).  The KISS port type is for Kenwood APRS radios prior to the D74.

Re: Where is "S8RY4Q" generated?

That's a Mic-E compressed packet. What you're seeing is part of the posit information. 

I don't have it readily available, but Google APRS Mic-E encoding and you should find the document. It's definitely part of the APRS spec document.

Re: Getting APRSIS TO tx/rx on RF

I am curious if you copied (or moved) your original XML to the new Windows 10 machine, or started over?
I am not familiar with teh Siskin Tiny2.   What type of interface is it: DB9, USB, or other?
   I saw one article on 9600 baud that mentioned "Phil Bridges G6DLJ of Siskin Electronics Ltd" but no mention of the product.

COM1 is typically a hardware port on most computers.  If it is a USB interface and you assigned the USB device to COM1, some computers hold that for the hardware interface (even if the motherboard doesn't have it).

You should see something in the terminal emulator when packets are received, even if the TNC is in KISS mode.

Look at the windows driver for the coms port as that is the normal issue. Windows thinks you should have a new driver and then screws up the system.

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...)

thanks a ton.

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.

As far as I know, there are no special settings within APRSIS32 for HF.
UZ7HO's SoundModem application is a sofwtare based TNC and its settings take care of the HF vs. VHF/UHF settings.
  You will hvae to check the UZ7HO manual for the proper settings for HF
These are not within APRSIS32.

To interface the UZ7HO SoundModem to APRSIS32, you have 2 options:
1. AGW port over TCP/IP  
    Menu >Configure >New Port ... 
       Port Type:    AGW
       Port Name:  UZ7HO                { or your choice}
       Hit  <Create> button
    Choose <TCP/IP>
       IP or DNS:    LocalHost          {IP address of computer running SoundModem}
       Port:              8000                   {Unless you have configured a different port}
2. KISS port over TCP/IP
    Menu >Configure >New Port ... 
       Port Type:    Simply(KISS)
       Port Name:  UZ7HO                { or your choice}

Re: APRSIS32

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.

Passcode for M1EKM is 13976

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.
