6132RE: [BPQ32] Re: APRS
- Jun 1, 2011
Actually there is A purpose..
If you select certain BPQ ports to listen for APRS UIframes… ie Position reports from stations on the given port.. Say a Mobile user with his station on the BBS port instead of APRS freq.. His position (and only his position data) will be picked up by that BPQ port and retransmitted on the APRS freq… Thus the selection for up to 16 BPQ ports in UiView…
So another words … Say a APRS guy wanted to sit on the BBS freq and use the BBS or just stay on example.. 145.050 his APRS beacon could still reach the APRS system.. Easily enough.. And he would not have to sit on 144.390 all the time to do so…
This creates only an added Beacon on the NON APRS frequency and no additional Traffic on the Actual APRS freq.. since he would otherwise have been on 144.390 anyway…

Don Sorry I missed your call. I will try you later…
Ok, just trying to get a feel for this stuff. I saw the ui-view bpq32 host so thought there was a specific and efficient purpose for that. I will forgo that thought and look into a vhf freq here in my town that may be a benefit here. The only HF I have right now is 10m so looking to expand into a vhf freq to help with personal comm or emcomm. I don't think I have anyone close enough to me to on a 2m freq that can hear me. Thanks for the info, Mike
