Re: [aprsisce] Question
- Just to emphasize ->
As Lynn stated:
"So, also please do not take it upon yourselves to start dispensing passcodes,
unless it is privately, to your close friends or local club members."
The intent is for developers (in this case Lynn or his designate) provide passcodes to users.
Although the algorithm may be available to create your own passcode, thsi group and the requests for passcodes though Lynn (and designates) does give Lynn feedback on users (especially NEW users) of his application.
As a bystander, I find it inspriring, so as a programmer, I am sure that is even more so for Lynn to see these requests.Robert Giuliano

Please do NOT post passcodes to this forum. And also, per http://www.aprs-is.net/Connecting.aspx (emphasis theirs)
It is the responsibility of each software author to provide the proper passcode to their individual users on a request basis.
So, also please do not take it upon yourselves to start dispensing passcodes, unless it is privately, to your close friends or local club members.
We acknowledge that the APRS-IS is NOT secure, but publicly posting passcodes, or even the knowledge of locally generating passcodes, further erodes the minimal assurances we have.

PS. I realize that every now and then one of us doesn't pay attention to the difference between aprsisce@ vs aprsisce-owner@ in our passcode request replies, but let's not take a bug and make it a feature.
PPS. If you really are interested in assisting with passcode generation for APRSISCE/32 and moderation of this list, please contact me in a private e-mail. We're especially looking for someone from Australia to provide more continuous time-zone coverage.

Subject: [aprsisce] QuestionI am now on APRS-IS and I need the passcode to get in the client configuration. Any idea where I get that? I'm new at this and I need some assistance. Thanks and 73, Denis / VE6AGE
- I run APRSIS32 on a desktop, and every so ofter my N2WVM-10 status sends out like 5 consecutive beacons, and it indicates that my "battery is charging." It must think I'm using a laptop. What configs can I change to alter it so the program realizes I have no battery to charge?Thanks in advance,EricN2WVM
- Disable telemetry. APRSISCE/32 is hardwired to send specific telemetry data which cannot be changed by the user. We did however get Lynn to allow us to shut off sending the telemetry packets.James
