- Aug 25, 2010Lynn, This is wonderful news!
When will you release a version with the pass-thru port? Is there any sample code available that illustraits a "simplistic" APRS packet parser? I have been reading the 101 spec and it doesn't look simple at all!
I am hoping to get a quick and dirty text-to-speech message announcer working without learning all the gory details of the lowlevel protocol.

Would this be messages only directly addressed to the current
callsign-ssid (the ones that would be ack'd by the program), all
messages to the base callsign (My Messages), all messages to the message
groups (internal and user-configured), or all messages received and
displayed (Eavesdrop)? If the file still exists when a new message is
received, should it be overwritten with the latest or appended to?
This, along with many of the other requests, will be very do-able with a
simplistic APRS packet parser connected to the soon-to-be-provided local
APRS-IS pass-through feed. That is actually my planned implementation
rather than having "this packet" and "that packet" switching going on in
The pass-through will support multiple simultaneous incoming connections
on a single port. Initially, everything that comes in will go out.
Eventually, I plan to support APRS-IS authentication to accept incoming
packets for forwarding to the APRS-IS network. I also plan filter
support (or some subset thereof) that will allow local programs like the
one above to do filters like b/KJ4ERJ-12 and/or t/m.
Please consider security in your external app as well. Remember, every
APRS message is sent in-the-clear, so some sort of rotating, single-use,
password scheme would probably be required. Unless you want random
people controlling your power bill by cranking the thermostat to extremes.
