A Question about Digipeating

KD7YZ Bob <kd7yz@...>
 

1:Fm N4PWH-10 To APDW15 Via KD7YZ-15,WIDE1*,WIDE2-1 <UI pid=F0 Len=57 >[08:40:46]
!3819.85NI08258.30W#RasPi I-Gate/Digipeater in Grayson KY [UISS/AGWPE]

or
( and I'd asked about this "not supported stuff earlier]

WinMain:2020-01-04T13:40:46.127 Digipeating N4PWH-10 (WIDE1-1) via(WIDE1-1=WIDE1*)
WinMain:2020-01-04T13:40:46.127 Original(N4PWH-10>APDW15,WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1:!3819.85NI08258.30W#RasPi I-Gate/Digipeater in Grayson KY)

WinMain:2020-01-04T13:40:46.127 KWD710(APRS):DigiPeating Not Supported on KWD710(APRS) Protocol Ports

The question is, why don't I see the next station that heard me DigiPeat N4PWH ?
I see a thick brownish line connection N4PWH and "ME" on the APRSIS32 map everytime he Beacons that message.
However I never see a line from "ME" to someone else who received my repeat of PWH.

There are actually two or three guys out here in Rural Appalachia, over 100 miles, on ridgelines like me, who DO include my call in their Beacon path. I have seen the brown lines and seen AGWPE-UISS Digipeat them.

I realise that technically, AGWPE->UISS caught the decode through the Signalink off the D710 Data-Port. And that UISS did the DigiPeat. So maybe no seeing I make in APRSIS32 or the D710 would make any difference.

But I thought I'd ask anyway. Any D710 users feel free to email me at mycall from ARRL. DOT argghhhh matey.

that should be obfuscated enough to belay the spam-bots, hi hi

Thanks es HNY

Yes, the packet originator comes first before the >

I "think" " qAR" KD7YZ-15 has to do with who went RF to Internet Service .. dunno the meaning of qAR though.
Yes, the callsign after the q-construct (qAR in this case) is usually, but not always, the IGate.  You can read more about q Constructs at:

http://www.aprs-is.net/q.aspx

I've never seen WIDE3 before. And the NU3S-7>APK102 ... does that mean the originating station went Program/Internet-service first ... to get the APK102 generated?
No, the >APK102 is the ToCall and identifies the source station as a Kenwood D710.  You can find the documented ToCalls at:

http://aprs.org/aprs11/tocalls.txt


And the inference of the WIDE3 as opposed to a IDE2-1 ?
Here's a deconstruction of the path from that packet:

,KF8YK-2,WIDE1,K8UI-1,CHLSEA,KC8SDN-5*,WIDE3,
KF8YK-2 is a digipeater that first copied the packet.  It appears to have reacted to an original WIDE1-1 path request from the originating station.

K8UI-1 copied that digipeated packet, presumably reacting to a WIDE3-3 component from the originating station.

CHLSEA copied that packet and likely saw a WIDE3-2 unused path component as K8UI-1 would have decremented it.

KC8SDN-5 heard CHLSEA and saw an unused WIDE3-1 which it then reacted to triggering the FIFTH time this packet was put on RF. KC8SDN-5 should have marked the WIDE3 as used (*), but that doesn't show in the packet from above.

Finally KD7YZ-15 (your station) copied the packet from KC8SDN-5 and gated it to the APRS-IS with the qAR code.

thanks for the class.
Any time.  There's a lot to know, and a lot of differences in what you'll see inside packets.

Re: I want to operate aprs while listening to hf on another band is that possible?

The idea is to use a mono band 2 meter for dedicated APRS. Signal band 2 meter radio are pretty inexpensive.

Like most equipment, you need to look at its capability.  As Fred said, "MOST" dual band radios (more likely with HTs) are dual receive and single transmit, so you must make sure the TX is set to the TNC and desired frequency.  Using one for a QSO while also trying to RX/TX APRS is not likely to work.

The cheap Chinese dual bands tend to have a long turnaround time. That is they take several times longer (up to 7x) to go from tx to being able to rx. The few tests I’ve seen online show a lot less packets being decoded by them as well.

Re: I want to operate aprs while listening to hf

The Yaesu FT857D is a single frequency radio.  There is no way to use it as you intend.  The priority channel jumps between 2 frequencies, but transmit on the VFO (not priority) frequency.

Hopefully you have APRSIS32 on a Simply(KISS) type port.  The KISS type port is designed for Kenwood APRS radios and will sometimes take other TNCs out of KISS mode when the port is disabled or APRSIS32 is closed.

So, if your "straight kiss" means "Simply(KISS)", you're good.  If it means "KISS", you may be hosed at some point in the future again.

Lynn (D) - KJ4ERJ - Author of APRSISCE for Windows Mobile and Win32

PS.  I queried your station and it appears that the port you called "kiss" is actually a KISS-type port.  You need to delete that one and create a new one with all the same settings, except select Simply(KISS) at the start.  Unfortunately, there's no way to change the type of an existing port, only it's connectivity and attributes.

Lee,

You were right on. I left the Tracker II ports default in AUTO after updating the firmware. I have now changed the port to KISS and now I am getting RF in the Scrolling listing. I might have changed something in both the OTII and APRSIS32, but now it is working again having changed both to straight kiss!

Thank you!

Scroller is showing APRS-IS traffic fine. No local RF Traffic, no CALLSIGN*

Looking at the data from the TNC with TerraTerm, looks fine - as expected text with local RF stations and Digi hop info.

Logging the port I see a lot of:

Port(OpenTracker II) [Date and time info] KISS:Missing Leading CO[XX]...

Where XX data is changing, as an example: 50,62,51,53

and ... above shows the path information.

What did I click on that I should not have clicked on, what areas should I check? I looked at Wicki but did not see a path to success... :)

Thank You,

Re: RF Serial COM1 Port Parsing Error, KISS: Missing Leading CO[XX]

Hopefully you have APRSIS32 on a Simply(KISS) type port.  The KISS type port is designed for Kenwood APRS radios and will sometimes take other TNCs out of KISS mode when the port is disabled or APRSIS32 is closed.

So, if your "straight kiss" means "Simply(KISS)", you're good.  If it means "KISS", you may be hosed at some point in the future again.

PS.  I queried your station and it appears that the port you called "kiss" is actually a KISS-type port.  You need to delete that one and create a new one with all the same settings, except select Simply(KISS) at the start.  Unfortunately, there's no way to change the type of an existing port, only it's connectivity and attributes.

Lee,

You were right on. I left the Tracker II ports default in AUTO after updating the firmware. I have now changed the port to KISS and now I am getting RF in the Scrolling listing. I might have changed something in both the OTII and APRSIS32, but now it is working again having changed both to straight kiss!

Thank you!
