Hello!

My name is David, KM4NKU. Been a Ham for about a year and recently been playing around with APRS on my RaspberryPi. Inspired by Mobilinkd's post on an Arduino KISS TNC, I sought to put one together for use with Xastir. Well, I kind of got it working, but then yesterday @WarHawk-AVG pointed me to this project. Let's just say I'm terribly impressed! I'm also interested in a Arduino Nano build.

Here are some packets from the TNC I had working on the breadboard yesterday:

2017-01-17 21:41:52 CST: KM4NKU>APX204,KD4PBS-3*,WIDE2-1,qAR,WB4P-10:=3554.6 N/07830.9 W-PHG2000XASTIR on Raspberry Pi
2017-01-17 21:45:20 CST: KM4NKU>APX204,W4UNC-3,WIDE1*,WIDE2-1,qAR,WB4P-10:=3554.6 N/07830.9 W-PHG2000XASTIR on Raspberry Pi
2017-01-17 21:47:12 CST: KM4NKU>APX204,W4UNC-3,WIDE1*,WIDE2-1,qAR,WB4P-10:=3554.6 N/07830.9 W-PHG2000XASTIR on Raspberry Pi

and for a while I was decoding packets, but that stopped working.

Hopefully I'll be trying the MicroModem firmware tonight smile


Wow, you are my neighbor!  From the calls in those packets you're in the Raleigh area.  You will notice that KD4PBS is by far the strongest APRS signal, but has been going down a lot lately.  If I recall he went down yesterday than came back up this morning.   That may explain why it stopped working.  I had the exact same issue!  It turns out that KD4PBS was just going down often LOL.  W4UNC is also hit or miss for me.   I'm located in North Raleigh.  The call is W4WHL.

Ping me, would be happy to help and/or test with you.

Regards,

William

Looking at your APRS QTH, your only about 5-6 miles from me.

Hello all,
Matthew, kc8bew, here.  I am looking into making a micro tracker kit design so I can use it to cover several requirements for some Boy Scout merit badges.  Also the easier it is the better.  The micromodem would be perfect for this!  Minimal parts and cost is under $20 so far for all parts but the radio. Plan on just using an HT as apposed to a built in radio.  Any ideas would be helpful.  Tnx.

...it's worth doing twice!  Name is Damon, and I'm thankful for Mark's work on this project, and whemming's work on forking the Mega (I had to rephrase that a bit, but it still comes out kinda weird...).

Re: Reply to this post!

Hello everyone, My name is TJ. from Georgia, US. - KM4PGH . Trying to make use of the LibAPRS library.

I'm trying to join the forum because I am having trouble getting my packets formed correctly. (i think) I have a Micromodem with the kiss firmware running on an IC-2300H that works great! I'm using this as one debug tool but still have not got it to receive a good packet from my modem running custom code and the LibAPRS library. In addition I have MULTIPSK sampling the modulated audio via sound card right now which is giving me my only readable output for the moment. :

AI8F de KM4PGH-9 via WIDE1-1 WIDE2-1 Ctl C UI Pid=F0 Len=80>
=5530.80N/01143.89EO{ALT      0ft SAT B 100071 H48.7% T1 64.6F T2 65.1F T3 66.2

I'm learning about the APRS formatting I understand there are other methods for handling the data but I cannot even get BasicUsage.ino to work. it compiles fine runs, outputs similar to the custom output but is not decoded by another micromodem or any other igate in the area. 

Any ideas from the above output what Is wrong?
Most of the packets I have been comparting are like SCALL-1>WIDE1 -1, WIDE2-1, etc not DCALL-0 de SCALL-1 via etc....

If I may be allowed to post elsewhere Id like to put more information up about my issue.

Thanks --TJ KM4PGH

A week has passed. No Activity here, I'll try e-mail in hopes for some response.

I took a couple packet samples again, using the bone stock Basic_usage sketch with the only modification being the 5v AREF and Call/Dest fields.

Hi my call is vu2upx and I'm from India.

Joined the forum to learn a bit more in homebrewing.

I am more interested in APRS and I am following W4WHL (whemming) topic very eagerly.

Wish I have reply to rights to participate in the discussion.

Thank you.

Hello whemming,

In your post you said some time back, that you would be following up the progress of your APRS with Schematic and writeup details. Since I don't have reply rights, I send you the is request, here.

This is w.r.t. ARPS on ESP8266/32

Hello, Mike KT6MJ in Sacramento.
Would like to get APRS or full TNC working on an ESP32 using internal DAC and ADC so no external devices would be necessary.
I am studying W4WHL's work trying to understand the code.

Re: Reply to this post!

Just started working on a simple arduino KISS TNC.
Trying to figure out how set the preamble and tail using the precompiled kiss images. Or even change it from the source.
"MicroAPRS supports a subset of the KISS configuration commands." But I see no information on how to set these configs. Any help would be appreciated.

Second reply, managed to make a poor man's copy of your RNode firmware in ATmega328p, I might make a post later containing my struggle trying to make it work.
