Further javAPRSSrv ports update (I know again!)

After some consultation with the T2 Sysops I now have my javAPRS mirrored like that of a T2 server, but without T2 status! (I need a fixed IP to become one) So here is the list of amended ports… Available Ports Port Number Description 1314 Messaging Only Feed 8080 HTTP POST Submission Port 10142 VK2 […]

APRS 40m Gateway VK7HSE-4

APRS on 20m (14MHz)

As most of the Amateur Radio community know there is HF APRS on the 30m band. Well there is a trial currently happening (again) on the 20m band. This was started up a few weeks ago by Ray VK2TV.  Now depending on what packet radio equipment you have (TNC) the frequency that you will need […]


UPDATE: the gallery plug in was removed so images are no longer available Here are some photos of my TinyTrak4D. As you can see the case size is rather large compared to it's contents! However, I'm planning on placing a small switch-mode power supply in there so that I then have the option to either […]
