Filter Out Objects


Jerry N7YGE
 

 

Can someone please show me how to write the code for a filter to be able to turn off objects like winlink with a red diamond and W? Also black diamond with a D.

 

I have tried  filter –o/a/DW and -0/a\DW

-o is an object filter which is based on the object name.

I suspect you're looking for a -s filter which is a symbol filter.

Please give me a few of the stations you'd like to not see so that I can verify exactly which symbol they're using to build you a suitable -s/ symbol filter.

I want all of the red diamond with W and D’s to go away.  Picky any of them.

 

Thank you for the help.

Nice map, but I don't think that's APRSIS32...  If it was, you could test the positive filter with Control-G for a filter test.  But here's what I think you need:

-s//a/WD

Yes, there's 2 slashes after the s and one slash after the a.  It says to suppress all "a" symbols from the alternate table (the red diamond) with an overlay of W or D.

Did not work.  Did you try it and it worked for you?  See below as to the right orientation of the /a for a red diamond.  Yes I am using SARTRACK but all programs have the filter box and is universal.  So should work for all aprs programs.  Please send code tested and works for you.

 

 

http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/aprs-is-filters

 

 

-s//a/DW

Blocks all packets using a red diamond (\a) overlaid with DW

 

 

Since the diamond is red should it use the \a and not /a?

 

 

-s/\a/DW

 

Thank you.

Did I test it?  Yes, that's why I mentioned that you could test it yourself if you used APRSIS32 which includes a filter test capability, but only in a positive sense.

READ the definition of the s filter from the quoted page:

s/pri/alt/over Symbol filter pri = symbols in primary table (| => /)
alt = symbols in alternate table (| => /)
over = overlay character (case sensitive)
For example:
s/->     This will pass all House and Car symbols (primary table)
s//#     This will pass all Digi with or without overlay
s//#/T   This will pass all Digi with overlay of capital "T"

Note that PRIMARY table symbols go after the first FORWARD slash and alternate table (ones that can use overlays) go after the SECOND slash and the overlays go after the THIRD slash and are CaSe SeNsItIvE.

So, if we look at one of the stations you want to get rid of, say N7LOB-10 at http://aprs.fi/N7LOB-10 and then click on the Raw Packets link, we see that they all come from WINLINK and look like:

But APRSIS32 makes this easier by showing:

N7LOB-10
1200 R5m Winlink Gateway

Freq: 145.630MHz
Sym: WinLink (Wa)
App: WinAPRS, etc (L2K)
Ambiguity: 1 nm

2020-03-07 11:59:16 (18m54s)
WINLINK->TCPIP*

Note that the symbol is Wa.  This means alternate table (since the first character isn't /) symbol a with an overlay of W.

Finding one of the DSTAR objects is a bit trickier since they have an embedded space, but if you search for KB7ZEN* in aprs.fi's Raw Packets display, you get:

2020-03-06 21:42:10 EST: KB7ZEN-S>APDG01,TCPIP*,qAC,KB7ZEN-GS:;KB7ZEN B *070242z4656.40ND12236.00Wa/A=000010RNG0001 440 Voice 438.50000MHz +0.0000MHz

Which APRSIS32 kindly describes as:

KB7ZEN B
440 Voice 438.50000MHz +0.0000MHz

Sym: DARES (Da)
App: D-Star Gateway (01)
Range: 1mi
FromME: 2604mi NW (311º)

Time: 00-07 12:09:00z
2020-03-07 12:09:50 (19m24s)
KB7ZEN-S->TCPIP*

Which is the same alternate table a symbol with an overlay of D.

So plugging alternate table with overlays D and W into the formula for the s filter, we get:

s//a/DW

When I put that filter into an APRSIS32 Filter Test window, I get LOTS of packets including:

Which kindly tells me that packets were hitting on both the D and W overlay characters which is confirmed if you use the aprs101.pdf to visually parse the packet data and find the symbol and overlay characters that match.

Further, if I telnet to my local friendly APRS-IS server and set up that filter (see http://www.aprs-is.net/Connecting.aspx for instructions), I get the following packets:

VK2RBV-S>APDG01,TCPIP*,qAC,VK2RBV-GS:;VK2RBV B *071233z3351.84SD15112.68EaRNG0050 440 Voice 438.77500MHz +5.0000MHz VA2REX-S>APJIO4,TCPIP*,qAC,VA2REX-GS:;VA2REX AD*221404z4500.92ND07350.48WaRNG0020 1.2 Data 1248.50Mhz 128K VA2REX-S>APJIO4,TCPIP*,qAC,VA2REX-GS:;VA2REX B *022035z4500.92ND07350.48WaRNG0040 440 Voice 448.325Mhz - 5Mhz DO9MC-S>APDG01,TCPIP*,qAC,DO9MC-GS:;DO9MC B *071233z5145.32ND00800.88Ea/A=000010RNG0001 440 Voice 439.93750MHz -9.4000MHz WX4EMA-S>APJIO4,TCPIP*,qAC,WX4EMA-GS:;WX4EMA C *061725z3250.15ND08337.97WaRNG0015 2m Voice 145.340 +0.600 MHz WINLINK>APWL2K,TCPIP*,qAS,WLNK:;VE7LAN-10*071233z4921.

Which you can see (if you've studied aprs101.pdf and can visually parse packets) includes both the D and W overlays of the alternate table a symbol.

So, yes, I've tested the recommended filter in the positive sense.  Testing a negative filter is much harder in that you have to go through a large (I use planet-wide) stream of data and determine that the target packets are NOT present.

So, my challenge to you is did YOU apply and test the negative form of the filter properly?  What makes you believe it "did not work"?  Is it possible that it DID work and SARTRACK is simply displaying stations that it heard before the negative filter was applied?  Did SARTRACK truly apply the negative filter to the upstream APRS-IS server connection?

And if you need help confirming those questions, please inquire on the SARTRACK support list as they are not APRS-general questions.

PS.  An alternat esymbol to get rid of all packets from WinLink would be -b/WINLINK or -u/APWL2K.  For the DStar gateways, you could use -u/APDG* or -u/APDG01/APDG02.  The trick to filtering APRS-IS is to deterine what common feature is shared by the target stations' packets and NOT shared by desired station packets.

Seems like the hotpots have bloomed and they're now sending two id packets ( w1aw-X and "w1aw  X"). 

Resource discovery with APRS is good but now it's too many too often cluttering the heard list.

Lynn's -s.. helped 

Even better, add. -d/TCPIP*/

Maybe you can skin this cat a different way.

 

In the APRS client called APRSIS32, I used this: -b/CW*/DW*. Note the * on the end.

 

The reason I chose to use “-b” was because there may be a time when the symbol is used incorrectly and I wouldn’t see it. You are looking at a symbol with a specific overlay so it may be very specific.

Good idea Fred, but that gets rid of the CWOP weather stations mostly.  The original request was to get rid of WinLink stations and D-Star gateways.

In the APRS client called APRSIS32, I used this: -b/CW*/DW*. Note the * on the end.

 

The reason I chose to use “-b” was because there may be a time when the symbol is used incorrectly and I wouldn’t see it. You are looking at a symbol with a specific overlay so it may be very specific.

Did not work.  Did you try it and it worked for you?  See below as to the right orientation of the /a for a red diamond.  Yes I am using SARTRACK but all programs have the filter box and is universal.  So should work for all aprs programs.  Please send code tested and works for you.

-s//a/DW

Since the diamond is red should it use the \a and not /a?

 

 

-s/\a/DW

 

Thank you.

Nice map, but I don't think that's APRSIS32...  If it was, you could test the positive filter with Control-G for a filter test.  But here's what I think you need:

-s//a/WD

Yes, there's 2 slashes after the s and one slash after the a.  It says to suppress all "a" symbols from the alternate table (the red diamond) with an overlay of W or D.

-o is an object filter which is based on the object name.

I suspect you're looking for a -s filter which is a symbol filter.

Please give me a few of the stations you'd like to not see so that I can verify exactly which symbol they're using to build you a suitable -s/ symbol filter.

Greetings Lynn,

 

This is an awesome description! I have always had trouble wrapping my head around testing filters. I usually end up with what I want but it takes a while!

 

Best regards,

READ the definition of the s filter from the quoted page:

s/pri/alt/over

pri = symbols in primary table (| => /)
alt = symbols in alternate table (| => /)
over = overlay character (case sensitive)
For example:

s/->     This will pass all House and Car symbols (primary table)
s//#     This will pass all Digi with or without overlay
s//#/T   This will pass all Digi with overlay of capital "T"

Note that PRIMARY table symbols go after the first FORWARD slash and alternate table (ones that can use overlays) go after the SECOND slash and the overlays go after the THIRD slash and are CaSe SeNsItIvE.

So, if we look at one of the stations you want to get rid of, say N7LOB-10 at http://aprs.fi/N7LOB-10 and then click on the Raw Packets link, we see that they all come from WINLINK and look like:

But APRSIS32 makes this easier by showing:

N7LOB-10
1200 R5m Winlink Gateway

WINLINK->TCPIP*

Note that the symbol is Wa.  This means alternate table (since the first character isn't /) symbol a with an overlay of W.

Finding one of the DSTAR objects is a bit trickier since they have an embedded space, but if you search for KB7ZEN* in aprs.fi's Raw Packets display, you get:

2020-03-06 21:42:10 EST: KB7ZEN-S>APDG01,TCPIP*,qAC,KB7ZEN-GS:;KB7ZEN B *070242z4656.40ND12236.00Wa/A=000010RNG0001 440 Voice 438.50000MHz +0.0000MHz

Which APRSIS32 kindly describes as:

KB7ZEN B
440 Voice 438.50000MHz +0.0000MHz

Sym: DARES (Da)

App: D-Star Gateway (01)

2020-03-07 12:09:50 (19m24s)
KB7ZEN-S->TCPIP*

Which is the same alternate table a symbol with an overlay of D.

So plugging alternate table with overlays D and W into the formula for the s filter, we get:

s//a/DW

When I put that filter into an APRSIS32 Filter Test window, I get LOTS of packets including:

Which kindly tells me that packets were hitting on both the D and W overlay characters which is confirmed if you use the aprs101.pdf to visually parse the packet data and find the symbol and overlay characters that match.

Further, if I telnet to my local friendly APRS-IS server and set up that filter (see http://www.aprs-is.net/Connecting.aspx for instructions), I get the following packets:

Which you can see (if you've studied aprs101.pdf and can visually parse packets) includes both the D and W overlays of the alternate table a symbol.

So, yes, I've tested the recommended filter in the positive sense.  Testing a negative filter is much harder in that you have to go through a large (I use planet-wide) stream of data and determine that the target packets are NOT present.

So, my challenge to you is did YOU apply and test the negative form of the filter properly?  What makes you believe it "did not work"?  Is it possible that it DID work and SARTRACK is simply displaying stations that it heard before the negative filter was applied?  Did SARTRACK truly apply the negative filter to the upstream APRS-IS server connection?

And if you need help confirming those questions, please inquire on the SARTRACK support list as they are not APRS-general questions.

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

 

PS.  An alternat esymbol to get rid of all packets from WinLink would be -b/WINLINK or -u/APWL2K.  For the DStar gateways, you could use -u/APDG* or -u/APDG01/APDG02.  The trick to filtering APRS-IS is to deterine what common feature is shared by the target stations' packets and NOT shared by desired station packets.

Note that the symbol is Wa.  This means alternate table (since the first character isn't /) symbol a with an overlay of W.

Finding one of the DSTAR objects is a bit trickier since they have an embedded space, but if you search for KB7ZEN* in aprs.fi's Raw Packets display, you get:

Which APRSIS32 kindly describes as:

KB7ZEN B
440 Voice 438.50000MHz +0.0000MHz

Sym: DARES (Da)

App: D-Star Gateway (01)
Range: 1mi
FromME: 2604mi NW (311º)
GridSquare: CN86qw +9ft
4656.40N 12236.00W
Time: 00-07 12:09:00z
2020-03-07 12:09:50 (19m24s)
KB7ZEN-S->TCPIP*

Which is the same alternate table a symbol with an overlay of D.

So plugging alternate table with overlays D and W into the formula for the s filter, we get:

s//a/DW

When I put that filter into an APRSIS32 Filter Test window, I get LOTS of packets including:

Which kindly tells me that packets were hitting on both the D and W overlay characters which is confirmed if you use the aprs101.pdf to visually parse the packet data and find the symbol and overlay characters that match.

Further, if I telnet to my local friendly APRS-IS server and set up that filter (see http://www.aprs-is.net/Connecting.aspx for instructions), I get the following packets:

Which you can see (if you've studied aprs101.pdf and can visually parse packets) includes both the D and W overlays of the alternate table a symbol.

So, yes, I've tested the recommended filter in the positive sense.  Testing a negative filter is much harder in that you have to go through a large (I use planet-wide) stream of data and determine that the target packets are NOT present.

So, my challenge to you is did YOU apply and test the negative form of the filter properly?  What makes you believe it "did not work"?  Is it possible that it DID work and SARTRACK is simply displaying stations that it heard before the negative filter was applied?  Did SARTRACK truly apply the negative filter to the upstream APRS-IS server connection?

And if you need help confirming those questions, please inquire on the SARTRACK support list as they are not APRS-general questions.

PS.  An alternat esymbol to get rid of all packets from WinLink would be -b/WINLINK or -u/APWL2K.  For the DStar gateways, you could use -u/APDG* or -u/APDG01/APDG02.  The trick to filtering APRS-IS is to deterine what common feature is shared by the target stations' packets and NOT shared by desired station packets.

Nice map, but I don't think that's APRSIS32...  If it was, you could test the positive filter with Control-G for a filter test.  But here's what I think you need:

-s//a/WD

Yes, there's 2 slashes after the s and one slash after the a.  It says to suppress all "a" symbols from the alternate table (the red diamond) with an overlay of W or D.

I suspect you're looking for a -s filter which is a symbol filter.

Please give me a few of the stations you'd like to not see so that I can verify exactly which symbol they're using to build you a suitable -s/ symbol filter.

Good idea Fred, but that gets rid of the CWOP weather stations mostly.  The original request was to get rid of WinLink stations and D-Star gateways.

The reason I chose to use “-b” was because there may be a time when the symbol is used incorrectly and I wouldn’t see it. You are looking at a symbol with a specific overlay so it may be very specific.

Did not work.  Did you try it and it worked for you?  See below as to the right orientation of the /a for a red diamond.  Yes I am using SARTRACK but all programs have the filter box and is universal.  So should work for all aprs programs.  Please send code tested and works for you.

-s//a/DW

Blocks all packets using a red diamond (\a) overlaid with DW

 

 

Since the diamond is red should it use the \a and not /a?

 

 

-s/\a/DW

 

Thank you.

Nice map, but I don't think that's APRSIS32...  If it was, you could test the positive filter with Control-G for a filter test.  But here's what I think you need:

-s//a/WD

Yes, there's 2 slashes after the s and one slash after the a.  It says to suppress all "a" symbols from the alternate table (the red diamond) with an overlay of W or D.

-o is an object filter which is based on the object name.

I suspect you're looking for a -s filter which is a symbol filter.

Please give me a few of the stations you'd like to not see so that I can verify exactly which symbol they're using to build you a suitable -s/ symbol filter.

Ok, that's not APRSIS32, but we'll go on anyway.

According to http://www.aprs-is.net/javaprsfilter.aspx:

o/obj1/obj2... Object filter Pass all objects with the exact name of obj1, obj2, ... (* wild card allowed)
(spaces not allowed) (| => / and ~ => *)

So a filter of -o/W7W|CH212/W7W|SK172 should work for you.  Or -o/W7W|* to wipe out all objects that start with W7W/

I'll have to check my internal filter implementation to see if I handle the | and ~ character substitutions for / and *.  Also not sure if this is a javAPRSsrvr filter feature or if it also works in aprsc servers.

I have tried  filter –o/a/DW and -0/a\DW

This is SARTrack which the friend I am trying to help uses.  He is able to turn the sota objects off but has to do so manually every time he restarts the program. 

 

I have APRSISCE now running and I see zero sota objects/symbols.  No W7W shown anywhere.

I will go turn on SARTrack to see if I can see any raw data.

Can you provide one or more of the actual callsign-SSIDs you're trying to filter out?  Right now we're guessing what you're really after.

Did not work.  The symbol looks like a red X with a plus sign overlay on top of it.  I have tried just the /.  which is the X with no luck.

Try -s/;/S

Assuming they are using the correct symbol.

Good idea Fred, but that gets rid of the CWOP weather stations mostly.  The original request was to get rid of WinLink stations and D-Star gateways.

Maybe you can skin this cat a different way.

 

In the APRS client called APRSIS32, I used this: -b/CW*/DW*. Note the * on the end.

 

The reason I chose to use “-b” was because there may be a time when the symbol is used incorrectly and I wouldn’t see it. You are looking at a symbol with a specific overlay so it may be very specific.

Did not work.  Did you try it and it worked for you?  See below as to the right orientation of the /a for a red diamond.  Yes I am using SARTRACK but all programs have the filter box and is universal.  So should work for all aprs programs.  Please send code tested and works for you.

-s//a/DW

Blocks all packets using a red diamond (\a) overlaid with DW

 

 

Since the diamond is red should it use the \a and not /a?

 

 

-s/\a/DW

 

Thank you.

Nice map, but I don't think that's APRSIS32...  If it was, you could test the positive filter with Control-G for a filter test.  But here's what I think you need:

-s//a/WD

Yes, there's 2 slashes after the s and one slash after the a.  It says to suppress all "a" symbols from the alternate table (the red diamond) with an overlay of W or D.

-o is an object filter which is based on the object name.

I suspect you're looking for a -s filter which is a symbol filter.

Please give me a few of the stations you'd like to not see so that I can verify exactly which symbol they're using to build you a suitable -s/ symbol filter.
