Send APRS message from IRLP Node


Keith VE7GDH <ve7gdh@...>
 

The file aprs_MSG has been uploaded to the files area. Place a copy in
your /home/irlp/custom folder. It should be owned by repeater and the
permissions should be set to 760. It is based on code from the IRLP
APRS status script. It will generate an APRS message that is sent to the
APRS-IS. A number of copies could be made with each one going to a
different callsign with a customized APRS message. The script(s) can be
called by DTMF using custom_decode. However, they could also be added
to custom.crons for a reminder of a regular event like a club meeting or
net. A properly configured IGate will gate the message to a local APRS
station.
