Glad you found the problem. If you have another radio, you can always listen on the frequency when you cause APRSIS32 to transmit and see the transmit light on the D74. Then listen for another packet immediately following your transmission. Short of having another station with solid reception of the digipeater, there's no way to actually KNOW that you've been heard and repeated.

PS. You'll get faster answers if you post questions like this in the APRSISCE Yahoo group than as a WikiDot post.

I am a totally new user here on APRSISCE and have it up and running for the first time. It seems to be working fine, I see local APRS stations on the map, but all of this appears to be coming in through the internet. I did go through the setup to connect a Kenwood TH-D74 over BT to aprsisce, and have that connecting fine and shows up in the program as an enabled port. I checked all the various settings in the program to make sure everything is enabled and that seems correct. So I am sort of stumped here. What is the purpose of having a TNC if the software is set up to run over the internet? Is the TNC just for cases where you don't have internet access? Can someone clarify that for me? Is there a way to force it to use the TNC and not the internet then?
Thanks for any tips! :)

Okay well I found the problem and it had nothing to do with the SW I didn't have the KISS mode set on the HT so now it is working. I don't have much of a signal here so not sure if my packets are being heard, is there a way to confirm that I am reaching a digipeater?

I have been away from APRSIS32 for a while. We have just started re-building our APRS network here in central Western Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma. W5ANR-9 is back on the air digipeating from Cavanal Hill near Poteau, Oklahoma. I need to get APRSIS32 back up and running on my computer so I can monitor the network. I installed the new version this afternoon but noticed that it does not "play fair" with Windows10 on installation. No desktop icon and it does not show up in my Apps list. Is it possible to correct this?
Thanks & 73,

I'm Back! by Rory BowersRory Bowers, 05 Feb 2019 20:45

I twice successfully achieved the Internet feed of APRS plots all over the country but I don't know what the settings were that achieved that result. I lost that result on the next startup. Can someone tell me what the settings are to plot the Internet feed of APRS plots and make those settings permanent? (Email: ki5ss[at]yahoo[dot]com).

I'm looking for the feature in the software that allows me to go back and see the telemetry information of an individual track, specifically the distance of a track from start point to end. I've been able to find how to load old tracks, the decay and the likes but where do I find how to see the distance traveled.

I'd like to be able to be able to check the telemetry information at the individual points along the track as well as be able to see specifically the Distance traveled; being able to see the start and end time as well as the travel time would be even more convenient.

Where have I not looked? what am I not seeing?

Does anyone have a problem with OSM maps being faded so much the streets are practically invisible? Have adjusted the monitor till I'm blue in the face….my face not the monitor :-(

Make sure the port is disabled then go into the configuration. You should then see a Delete button.

Howdy from Bill K7MT in Helena.

I presently have a VFH 144.390 Igate K7MT, HF 300 Baud Packet K7MT-11, PSK-63 K7MT-63, and Robust Packet K7MT-11 10147.3.

Can I digipeat internet to local RF VHF Igate K7MT-63, K7MT-11, K7MT-8 ??? HF stations are beaconed once and hour and WX to HF Packet only every 15 minutes.

I run 3 copies of APRSISCE 32 (VHF, HF 300 baud packet, Robust Packet) and APRS Messenger for the PSK-63.

I would like to capture the three HF stations off the internet and beacon out 1 or 2 hops on the local VHF RF..

Happy New Year to all and look forward to any assistance.

Cheers Bill K7T Helena MT.

Attempted to get Signal-Link USB to transmit. While doing "port setup configuration", I created additional ports with various names. I do not see an option to "DELETE PORTS". How do I delete non functional ports?

How to delete ports? by Don HillgaertnerDon Hillgaertner, 27 Dec 2018 06:13

Ok. Tried that and got it to work. Thanks

The file you downloaded should have been a .ZIP file. If you double-click that .ZIP, Windows will show you the APRSIS32.EXE inside the .ZIP, but double-clicking that WILL NOT WORK! It will exhibit exactly the behavior that you describe.

You need to create a new folder and UNZIP the downloaded file into that folder then double-click the APRSIS32.EXE inside that folder.

If you don't know how to do that, find a higher-level Windows user and let them read this message. They'll know how to do it to get you up and running.

Yes connected to downloaded and windows showed as application and click and it would bring up the window to type in your callsign and passcode etc. Did that ad hit ok and just get a blinking loading bar.

Does your tablet have Internet access while you are doing this installation?

And did you create a new folder and unzip the download into that new folder before running it? You cannot just double-click the download or double-click the .EXE inside. You MUST unzip it it into a non-protected directory and execute (double-click) the .EXE from there.

Downloaded aprsis32 on my tablet that runs win 10 and put in my call and passcode and hit ok. But all I get is a flashing bar across the screen

Nothing was done in the development version that should have broken that feature. Unfortunately, I don't own a D710 to test it personally. Can you e-mail your configuration file to KJ4ERJ at and I'll see if anything jumps out at me. I'll also see about hooking up my D700 with a GPS and see if it still passes through GPS data correctly in the latest development version. Might be early next week before I get to this, though.

Also, can you post this question to the APRSISCE Yahoo group? There may be those in the group that are actually using passthrough GPS data from a D710 that may have some suggestions.

Hi Bruce

You're decribing my exact configuration although I built my own cable. The configuration is documented on this site if you just search for D710. Keep in mind that I found that the development version after February 2017 isn't parsing the GPS pass through from the D710. The public stable release and all development releases including February 2017 work just fine.

You have to run the D710 in APRS mode and have the radio configured to output on the serial port on the head. I think this is menu 604.

Once you have the radio configured, connect your computer and use your favourite terminal program to monitor the output. You should see something like this:

VE5AA-11>APZBNC,WIDE2-2:!0000.00N/00000.00EO000/000/A=000000/V=10.2/Ti=-127/Te=-127 *Stale*

VE5AA-11>APZBNC,WIDE2-2::VE5AA-11 :PARM.Battery,ITemp,Etemp
VE5AA-11>APZBNC,WIDE2-2::VE5AA-11 :UNIT.V,degC,degC

VE5AA-11>APZBNC,WIDE2-2::VE5AA-11 :EQNS.0,0.0743,0,0,1,-128,0,1,-128,0,0,0,0,0,0
VE5AA-11>APZBNC,WIDE2-2::VE5AA-11 :BITS.11111111

Once you've confirmed the radio is outputting the right data, you can configure APRSIS32. My configuration is slightly different than the documentation shows, my configuration doesn't configure the D710 at all because it wasn't valuable to me. The down side is that I lose the ability for the laptop to transmit via the D710. Here's my D710 port configuration from Aprsis32:

<RFPort Name="D710">

To further bolster my argument that I still have most of my faculties, I tested multiple development versions and found that the Feb 10, 2017 version is capable of parsing the D710 GPS string but the July 17 2017 and all subsequent versions that I've tested can not.

73, Bruce


After working to rebuild my balloon tracking computer after a catastrophic crash, I was unable to get the program to recognize the GPS data passed through by my D710. I've spent hours and was beginning to doubt my sanity (a topic for another thread). ;-) I knew it had worked previously and I remember it was very easy to set up. Try as I might, it just wouldn't work. My backups showed I was running the last production version but I could swear that I as running the development version because I run it everywhere else. Finally I gave in and switched to the production and the feature sprang to life.

My question is whether this capability exists in the development version or not.

73, Bruce - VE5BNC

I have an implementation of APRSIS32 setup and running but do not yet have the radio connection setup. I don't seem to be receiving moving stations through the APRSIS network. I've dug all through the menu's but can't find anything else that I've missed.

So my question is this, should I be able to see moving stations near me, or where I have the map centered, if I'm currently only receiving/sending data through the internet and not RF?

Thanks for any help!
