stations scrolling up the scroller, so you should be receiving on
144.390. Do you have an offset accidentally enabled? Can you hear
KC2NYU-1 on KC2NYU-7, your HT?
KW4B-1 can hear your HT, so it should hear your home station is you
have a radio and antenna tied to the TNC. If you were getting out to
the local RF network, you should get packets into the APRS-IS
regardless of whether the passcode is good or not.

stations in the scroller could be coming from the APRS-IS stream, and

rename the config file, and then start up APRSISCE/32 again. It will
prompt you through setting up again. If it starts working, then you've
gotten something screwed up in the other config file. You can easily
go back by deleting the config file, and then rename the first file
back to the original name.
Of course Lynn wants to see your current config file, so hopefully
you've sent that off to him.

Have a look and see what you've been up to in a little better than a
day... 211 packets gated to the net already.
You can see that there are users in the area that are making use of your i-gate.
Now your next task is to see if you can educate your neighbor KW4B
that a digipeater shouldn't use an outgoing path of WIDE1-1. WIDE1-1
should only be used by low powered stations that need help getting
into the local digipeaters. Home stations should never run with
WIDE1-1 in their path. A digipeater should NEVER need help from a home
fill-in station. If the digipeater needs help from a home fill-in
station to be heard, then it really should be turned off. Main
digipeaters need to be situated where they can hear for a good
distance around them. Just like a voice repeater, putting a digipeater
in a spot where it can't hear anything is a waste of time.
If you look at the packets of KW4B, you can see that with the path he
is using, it was hit or miss as to whether the packets made it to the
internet. Once your i-gate came online, the graphs jump up because he
can get to the internet through your gate.
This digipeater is using a path of simply WIDE1-1. It should be
changed to something like WIDE2-1. The same goes for his other
digipeater KW4B-1. He's currently using a path of WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 over
there. The WIDE1-1 needs to go.
We're getting away from APRSISCE/32 specific things, and really
wandering into general APRS theory, so it's about time to tie the
ribbons on this thread.
Go play with APRSISCE/32, and have a look at all the bells and
whistles available now that you have gotten started learning the
basics of APRS operations.
