Finally, our APRS Project is getting a revive  Big Grin 

Firstly, I want to thank Dez ZS6DEZ above for his hard work and tenacity in getting our donated radio's to operate on the correct frequency.
Dez almost had to re-invent the wheel, and designed his own program including writing the HEX code or something like that, to bring the Midland Syntech radio onto the national APRS frequency of 144.800 Mhz.

Thank you Dez, without you, we would still not have a radio for our igate.

Back to present Day, with the software installed and AGWPE Packet Engine running, and receiving some packet bursts, - external Antenna needs to be mounted higher on pole. and UIView "Licensed to ZS66KTS" running, we are able to "see" mobile and base stations transmitting APRS in our coverage area.

Midland APRS Receiver
   

We are currently using one of the 4 stack antenna's for receiving, and hope to mount it higher on the pole supporting our dual band base antenna.
We need a power supply for the radio, failing that, we will connect to the Repeaters power supply.

Vivian suggested we get a Router to connect to the internet, so if anyone has a spare router that can take a internal SIM card, contact us.

We also need someone to sponsor some MEGA Bytes for us to start running some tests.

   

Stay tuned  Cool

Update:

We moved the vhf stack antenna a little higher on the pole outside the garage, this is for the reception of the APRS signal, this made a huge difference.
So the APRS is now receiving much more packets.
We also removed the temporary power supply and connected the APRS radio to the Repeaters Power Supply.

Next step is to connect this pc to the internet.

Is there anyone that can assist with getting us internet connectivity ?
