      Works fine and probably will last a long time.  Thanks, John!

      The config lines are rejected as you don’t have a port 7 or a Port 9.

       

      Assuming you want to use Port 2 for APRS, you should have one APRS Path statement:

       

      APRSPath 2=APRS,WIDE1-1, WIDE2-1              (or whatever path you use locally)

       

      A you only have 1 rf port you don’t need any DIGIMAP statements

      Hi John-

      Not sure it's a real error or just that I didn't start BPQAPRS first.  Is this a true error out?

      The APRS Digi and IGate is part of BPQ32.dll and is configured in bpq32.cfg – see

       

      http://www.cantab.net/users/john.wiseman/Documents/APRSDigiGate.html

       

      That is where the server is configured.

       

      BPQAPRS is the APRS Client

      And it will populate with stations as they come up on my APRS freq, or from a default T2 Server, or...  I see no place to enter a server address.  MY ?APRS.exe is loaded in the same folder as my BPQ.exe

      Yes, download and copy to your bpq32 program folder (after making a copy of the old one!)

      I’ve also found why tracks stopped being displayed for stations sending MIC-E format packets in the last release.

      The update at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/31910649/BPQAPRS.exe should fix this

      There have been a couple of updates today, so it is worth checking you have the right version - 1.1.0.3

      My apologies for any problems this has caused.

      73

      It seems something has recently changed with the MapQuest Map Tiles. Even though the tiles are .png files, they contain jpeg data.

       

      I’m not sure it this a permanent feature or an error, but I’ve changed the software to request and process jpg files instead. If you are having problems you can download the new version from http://dl.dropbox.com/u/31910649/BPQAPRS.exe

       

      The jpeg files seem to be of similar quality to the png files and are a lot smaller.

       

      73,

      John
