Radio Mobile and APRS

This version is not suitable for beginners in APRS. If you are, please try a mature software such as UI-view!

Installation steps:

  • Install properly AGW Packet Engine from AGWPE or Xastir in order to receive APRS data
  • Run Radio Mobile, in "View" select "APRS" and enter parameters requested
  • Note that you must select a starting station in the station list. The program will use this station and the following to show APRS. When the end of list is reached, the program will start over at the first station checked. To keep a station permanently, you use the arrow to move it in the lower list. You must click on the station name for the source and destination (do not check!) (all this to overcome the actual 50 stations limitation).

    When receiving an APRS message, the picture is cleared and the stations within the AX.25 header are drawn. A solid circle is drawn around the source station while a dotted circle is drawn around digipeaters. The station by which the message is heard is circled in green while the other are in yellow.

    See example.
