That is good to know!

In the radio there are two settings; Network and Packet Path.

Does the "Network" stay "APRS"? Or should it be set to "ARISS"?
I assume the Packet Path becomes "ARISS" or "APRSAT". Correct?

Thank you!

Best regards,
Fred N7FMH

Actually, when you use ARISS or APRSAT then the signal comes down as
RS0ISS* if it went via ISS, and comes down as PSAT,ARISS* or PSAT2,ARISS*
if it went via one of those.  Yes, it is a parsing pain, but a simple
rule.  If you see ARISS*, then simply find the actual satellite in the
previous field.

Hi all,

A little help.
Seems that I'm unable to igate AISAT traffic, despite I can do it for
all others (PSAT, PSAT2, PCSAT, BRICSAT2, ISS, BIRDBT, etc)
Currently using UI-View32. Any special setup in the igate.ini settings?

Thanks,

 I admit I am not very familiar with the packet format, but that feed seems
to identify the satellite that digipeated (or originated) each packet.
Yesterday, Christy KB6LTY and I exchanged messages on AISAT, which can be
seen in that packet stream, even though I used only the path ARISS. And
KE4AZZ had packets digipeated by PSAT2. What am I missing?

 Just a thought -- one of the benefits of using the actual call sign

For example, I am calculating the Az/El of each contact based on the
digipeated (PSAT*) path. When the digipeated path is ARISS or APRSAT there
is no good way to clarify which satellite participated in the packet.
http://www.spacecommunicator.club/igates/?

See the Az/El columns for PSAT; I plan to add Az/El for others sometime soon.

As a consumer of the data, I prefer seeing the individual call sign. As the

Thanks to Robert for posting this.  I'm sure that we can save him or others
a lot of work by trying to post from the same address that we receive
from.  I wanted to remind folks of another case where this problem can
happen.

If you use gmail, then it is possible to append a "+" to you address
followed by anything.  The plus sign and everything after it is ignored but
you can use this added bit for filtering.   For example,
mymail+amsat@?????.??? will go to mymail@?????.???.  However, if you reply
to the same address, the reply will come from mymail, not mymail+amsat.
I'm still searching for ways to actually send automatically from an alias
address but have not yet found it.

However, if you do want to be able to filter, you can use your "real" email
address and filter on [amsat-bb] in the subject line.

My own case was worse--I had the bb going through "call at amsat.org" and
that forwarded to a plus-sign alias!  I've fixed that, but I still have to
remember manually to change my "from" address.

73,

Hello Pedro!

The packets transmitted by AISAT-1 are not formed correctly, so they will
not be processed normally & accepted on the APRS-IS network.

Thankfully, instead of just letting AISAT-1 orbit as mostly useless space
debris (heard only by each of us individually with no participation on the
greater APRS network), Robert (KE6BLR) has setup a proxy for iGates that
corrects the packets from AISAT-1 and forwards proper packets on to the
APRS-IS so that the traffic can be seen on sites like FINDU.com.

I suggest that you contact Robert at ke6blr.robert@?????.??? to see about
having your iGate proxy through his server when AISAT-1 is over your
location.

-Scott,  K4KDR

You may be right.
Bob Bruninga mentioned a scenario where the ARISS path becomes PSAT, ARISS*
because the satellite inserts the call sign.

  I admit I am not very familiar with the packet format, but that feed seems
to identify the satellite that digipeated (or originated) each packet.
Yesterday, Christy KB6LTY and I exchanged messages on AISAT, which can be
seen in that packet stream, even though I used only the path ARISS. And
KE4AZZ had packets digipeated by PSAT2. What am I missing?

 Just a thought -- one of the benefits of using the actual call sign
(RS0ISS, PSAT, PSAT2) rather than ARISS or APRSAT is for the record.
For example, I am calculating the Az/El of each contact based on the
digipeated (PSAT*) path. When the digipeated path is ARISS or APRSAT there
is no good way to clarify which satellite participated in the packet.

See the Az/El columns for PSAT; I plan to add Az/El for others sometime soon.

As a consumer of the data, I prefer seeing the individual call sign. As the
user of the radio, I can see how using APRSAT for everything is more
convenient.

This is essentially NOS. I purchased it from another ham a couple of years
back and did not open anything, except to read
the instructions.
