BPQ32 APRS Object and WX beacon not working
- Howdy Gang Bill K7MT in Helena, Mt.
I cannot get my object to beacon out for out local club repeater. Here is my
APRSDIGI cfg file below. Any Ideas ?
Secondly, I have my Weather station using WXDisplay and the WXNOW.TXT is
correct but BPQ32 APRS will not beacon my Weather. Copy of WXDisplay TXT
file and yes my path is correct in setup.....

My Port is three using Kantronics KPC-3 in KISS mode for BPQ32 APRS It is
StatusMsg=BPQ32 IGate Helena, Mt. WLNK-1
Symbol=I ; Icon to display for station. Default is House if omitted
; Specify a Dest and Path for each port you want to use for APRS. No dest
means receive only port
; Ports without an APRSPath statement will not be used by the Digi
APRSPath 2= ; Receive only port
APRSPath 3=APRS,WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 ; Dest and up to 8 digis
BeaconInterval=30 ; Send Beacon every 30 minute
; Define Crossport Digi.
; For each port, a list of ports to send a packet to (IS means send to
; If a Digimap isn't specified for a port, digi out on the port the packet
; and send to APRS-IS (if enabled)
; If you want to digi on same port, but not send to APRS-IS, Specify Digimap
;Digimap 1=1 ; Packets from 1 to 9, but not APRS-IS
;Digimap 7=7,9,IS ; Packets from 7 to 7, 9 and APRS-IS
TraceCalls=WIDE ; Calls for CALLN-n Processing with Trace
;FloodCalls= ; Calls for CALLN-n Processing without Trace
DigiCalls=K7MT ; Calls for Normal (ie no SSID manipulation) Digi
; For a Local "Fillin" Digi, you could include
; and leave out TraceCalls and FloodCalls
; ReplaceDigiCalls ; Replace DigiCalls with APRSCall.
; Omit if you want the call to be left as it is
MaxTraceHops=2 ; Max value of n in CALLN-n processing.
; If a packet is received with n greater than
MaxFloodHops=2 ; this, the value will be replaced BEFORE it is
GPSPort=0 ; if specified, lat/lon will be taken from a GPS
; You can specify a fixed LAT/LONG instead of using GPS
LAT=4638.29N ; Must be in standard APRS Format
LON=11156.22W ; Must be in standard APRS Format
OBJECT PATH=APRS,WIDE1-1 PORT=3,IS INTERVAL=30
; IGATE Params. If specified you will gate RF packets and your beacons to
ISHost=england.aprs2.net ; APRS-IS Host Name
ISPort=14580 ; Normal port for a filtered feed
ISPasscode=XXXXX My Code is ok I just XXXXed it out
Well, Disregard the object question as I did have the wrong longitude and after correcting there it is. My eyesite is not what it use to be. I have to blame my mistake on something !! Hee Hee !!
I still have the WX Station question open.
Happy Turkey Day all,
Cheers Bill K7MT
