The actual HamBSD to RF bit was handled by the AEA PK-88 TNC in KISS mode, using the kernel network stack.

Show thread

A experimental IGate was tested today with bi-directional messaging. It's still missing a lot, but it works, was able to do Xastir to APRS-IS to HamBSD to RF with the Yaesu handheld.

I took the photo of the TNC before I started, I wasn't actually transmitting in the beacon segment of the band.

There was a lot going on here, but the summary would be: HamBSD works reliably as both a tracker (fixed or GPS) and as a receive-only IGate (with TLS cert auth!). Full monthly update will go on the patreon tomorrow: patreon.com/fossirl

Upgrading MB7UAR to the latest HamBSD snapshot today. If all goes well, MB7VX will follow. https://hambsd.org/stations.html #hamradio #aprs

I've made a quick post about a work-in-progress project, an amateur packet radio battlestation: patreon.com/posts/side-project

During this time where many are isolating, if you've got a VHF/UHF radio around, try calling on a local repeater or even FM calling channel. If you're in an area where those bands are usually "dead" this could be the time to make a contact. I'm going to try to be on the local repeaters more, and program the radio to scan simplex channels too.

Just uploaded Xastir 2.1.6 to #Debian unstable. Should be in bullseye in ~10 days. #hamradio

Fixed a pretty serious bug in #Debian's Xastir packaging that basically prevented any transmissions from happening. It's in unstable now (or in a few hours, depending on your mirror). #hamradio

Going to use this to help with amd64 and sparc64 snapshot builds, which hopefully will be appearing in February.

I wrote a new FAQ section for #HamBSD about #APRS. hambsd.org/faq-aprs.html

Still WIP, but coming along.
