Here is everything you need for APRS and JOTA:
IGATES: Please set "SCOUTS" to pass through to RF
JOTA STATIONS: Please add "SCOUTS" to your MESSAGE GROUPS so you can
receive generic messages to SCOUTS. Once every hour or so send a ONE LINE
message to SCOUTS so that people will see your callsign. Please set your
ICON to the SCOUT Icon (for D7 and D700's, the code is /,)
To WORK stations, do NOT send traffic to SCOUTS. Look at their
FROM-CALL and send them a message DIRECT to their call. The IGates will
automatically forward your packets back to RF. The result is worldwide
JOTA communications from your HT, Mobile or JOTA station display.
Once the IGates see traffic between stations A and B, then they will send
a PSOSIT so you can see each other on the map. Thats how APRServe works.
If your APRS program does not have MESSAGE GROUPS, then set them in your
D700 or D7(g). And all you need is to see the sending callsign to give
you a target.
See you on the air on JOTA!
