[OZAPRS] IGating to RF of WXSVR-AU

Hi Dave,

I think you may be onto something. I am wondering if that is the case, however the APRS spec suggests it shouldn't be an issue.


I might setup a local iGate on a dummy load to see what it does within its own algorithm and go from there.

just a thought from the sideline, does WXSVR-AU get blocked due to a callsign validation setting? e.g. because it has a '-' is it expecting a numeric after that?

Hi all,

Interesting issue I've got in Melbourne at the moment.

I can successfully message WXSVR-AU from RF and it hits the bot and it responds accordingly with the weather message. It doesn't however, emit out the gate onto RF.

I modified the callsign momentarily to VK3MJM-15 for testing and it gates correctly and gets the 3rd party marker applied etc. However as WXSVR-AU it does not gate at all. The passcode is correct for the callsign.

The plot thickens somewhat, as when I message callsigns such as PSAT or WXBOT (other internet based stations) they respond and get gated to RF without an issue.

Any suggestions or ideas where to start or am I attempting the impossible?
