About this app

APRS IGate based on javAPRSSrvr to interface Bluetooth KISS TNC on an Amateur Radio RF network to APRS-IS. This application appears as a local (internal) APRS-IS server so it can be used in conjunction with a UI APRS client to provide IGate capabilities to a mapping/messaging APRS client.

This application requires the user to have a valid amateur radio license.

Per APRS-IS specifications, this app accesses your location to create valid posits which are sent to the upstream server and to the attached TNC every 20 minutes. This is an essential function of IGates to prevent ghost IGates and cannot be disabled.

More setup information can be found on my website.

Absolutely perfect app for using my APRS rig as a mobile iGate. iGates arent plentiful in my area, so being able to provide the service wherever I go is pretty cool. I only wish I knew what port the full status page was available at on localhost. 14501 doesn't share as much info as the webpage loaded for Status in the app's menu, and loading that page in Chrome instead of in-app would make it more usable. -73!

Thank you for the review. javAPRSSrvr detailed status page is at http://localhost:14501/detail Also, be sure to use your IGate's SSID (numeric), not the server's SSID (IG is default) when creating a "friend" filter. The server does not generate posits but the IGate does.

If you're looking for a way to use your phone coupled with a TNC3 as a portable igate, this is it.
