Hi, this is VU3WTJ. I,m setting it up for first time. I need guidance for that. My HF rig : Yaesu FT 450D, VHF/UHF rig : Alinco DR 735T, TNC: Kantronics Kam XL, GPS : Byonics HA (attached with kam XL). I want to run APRS on HF & VHF/UHF both. Now please help me to setup the GPS AND TNC with computer & APRSISE/32 Software so everything will work in harmony.
Thanks. 73

First time setup by Sirsendu GhoshSirsendu Ghosh, 23 Dec 2019 20:14

My go laptop is running aprsis32 and I am not tech savvy enough just to read and start adding config scripts to the XML. I can follow directions though.

Good Morning.
I would Like ask You, if the DVB-T dongle can be the source of APRS data?

I am using APRSISCE/32 as an iGate with my FTM-400. When in I go into my shop, it is usually shut down and I have to restart it. My computer and display are still on. The only program that is down is the APRSISCE/32.

Using Windows 20.

Not sure what to do next.

Ok thanks for the tip on the Yahoo group. I will check the aprs-is messages check box but I was pretty careful in selecting everything I could. I can send messages and it triggers my radio TX, as does sending status beacons. I appreciate the help.

Also, questions like this are better asked on the APRSISCE Yahoo group. You'll likely get a lot more responses of things to check on there.

Please double-check what options you have enabled on your APRS-IS and RF ports. I suspect you at least do not have messages enabled on the APRS-IS port because I didn't get any response to my status queries to your KD1ELK-10 station, which I assume is your intended IGate?

Have you confirmed that APRSISCE/32 can actually transmit on your RF? If it won't transmit, then the -IS to RF gating will obviously not work. You might want to check

I am using APRSIS32, FT2DR, an Arrow II Yagi 20 feet up, and TNC3 by Mobilinkd. Everything appears to be working except IS to RF, via the log it shows a ton of RF to IS being gated, and the radio has also transmitted when functioning as a digi repeater as well as my beacons so it isn't a hardware issue. Xmit is checked, Internet and aprs-is is enabled. RF to IS and IS to RF is also checked.

After a few days it has yet to RF a single item from the IS side. I would love to run a 2 way i gate as we have plenty of rx only in the area already.

I have also tested it myself with a HT on less than one watt of power, I get gated, but no acknowledgement and my own setup wont tx messages to me.

Any help would be appreciated!

No, it's not SK, but a better place to ask questions is the APRSISCE Yahoo group. But this particular question could be addressed to nearly any ham support group.

and my caps-lock was on.

I am new to this APRSIS stuff. I am on a ridge Line with no neighbors in site. There are two stacked m2 loop at about 40 feet AGL that need a job here.
So I have the program running; the Map is filling up with station. Some are RF as I am using my EME and Sat radios and a couple of "Dongles" too, to feed "Ports" from UISS, AGWPE into your nifty APRSIS program.

Now I need a really decent APRS, or whatever it's called, rig so I can unburden the other two systems, and their SPID rotators …. bit of an overkill.

What do you guys see as a decent rig that my Windoze-10 system can work with here?

Thanks for listening ..


I am new here to this site and have to admit that it is a nice one with useful information.

Works fine for me.. look up k9bdh.. its running this software and digi along with IGATE

Re: Digipeating by Bradley HaneyBradley Haney, 27 Feb 2019 02:07

I would like to I GATE to RF certain Objects in my coverage zone that comes from the APRS feed. I would also like to CROSS BAND digi from 1200 baud to UHF 9600 baud and visa versa .. is that possible?

APRISIS32 is a Windows program. APRSISCE is a Windows Mobile program. APRSISMO is an APRS client application in development for Android.

Just what are you running on your Android Tablet and what exactly do you mean by "get the icon"?

PS. These types of questions can get more and potentially better answers if asked in the APRSISCE Yahoo group.

How can I get the Icon for the APRSIS32 FORM MY LAPTOP TO my Android Tablet????

APRSIS32 by John TroutmanJohn Troutman, 25 Feb 2019 01:00

APRS, and APRSISCE/32, already supports messaging via the protocol definition. If you have two APRS stations within simplex range and seeing each other's beacons, there is no reason that they cannot directly message each other. AFAIK, Winlink is a closed system, but regardless, APRSISCE/32 will remain an APRS client.

Re: Direct p2p messaging by Lynn (D)Lynn (D), 24 Feb 2019 14:06

I have not been on this site for a long time.
I am a long time user of APRSIS32. In the past I used Winlink and very much miss the direct messaging, station to station. In an emergency system on a simplex frequency, it would be much faster to direct message a station. As in any emergency situation, time is of the essence. Is there any plans to implement this protocol? Thank you everyone.

Direct p2p messaging by steve galbraithsteve galbraith, 23 Feb 2019 23:53

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?
