Telemetry support packets


Fred Hillhouse
 

I heard about the findu option today. I have already sent the support packets over RF but was curious. I was sending them at the ‘excessive’ rate of every two hours. ;)
I backed them off to every six hours a little bit ago just because I can.

I use one of the APRS messaging web interfaces (search for it at findu) to send the telemetry definition messages from myself to myself as the callsign-SSID that will be doing the telemetry.  That way aprs.fi and the rest of the active APRS-IS gets it as well as my APRSIS32 instance(s).

Thank you!

Actually, I think they are currently forever unless manually deleted.  This is by design as some telemetry stations only issue the definitions once manually by the operator.

Hi Lynn,

 

How long do the support packets (EQNS, PARM, UNIT) for telemetry stay in the XML?

I assume they ‘age out’ at some point.

 

Thank you!

Yes, without definitions, particularly EQNS, the raw data is displayed.

Is APRSIS32 the defaults EQNS for each channel of 0,1,0?
  Or are there some "assumed defaults" for certain devices?

I would assume the default to be 0,1,0 until scaling data is provided, but I have seen data on aprs.fi that is scaled to some assumed signal - especially for the Byonics TT4.
