First of all — thanks for APRSICE/32, I've used while it working the ISS digipeater numerous times over the past few months.
My setup is a Kenwood TM-V71A + RC-D710, Windows XP, serial-to-USB converter cable. It took some fiddling to setup over the winter, but I've ironed out most/all the kinks that initially plagued me (mostly cabling, ports, etc.). My question has to do with how to best setup the software while working the ISS digipeater. Based on what I've seen on www.findu.com — I've noted that when I turn off the RF-Internet option on the PORTS->D710 screen, I'll see something like this reported:
KD0KZE>TUPX9R,RS0ISS*,qAR,WA8LMF-SG:'yaIl -/]Greetings from Circle Pines MN=
However, when I leave that setting on, I typically see my successful call to the ISS digipeater as originating from a TCPIP location instead. When I turn off that setting, it reports (the more gratifying) RSOISS* path. Am I basically digipeating my own traffic? Is there a way to not re-send your own RF traffic via TCP-IP (assuming this is the case), but still continue to report other stations you've heard? I'm happy to send my listening RX traffic the IGate, because it gives them credit.
Thanks & 73's
