Hi 

I am picking up errors from aprs.fi when trying transmit WX

my beacon config is 

<beacon>
beacon file /tmp/wxnow.txt
beaconmode both
cycle-size 10m
beacon symbol "/_" $myloc comment "WX in South Yorkshire" via "WIDE2-2"
</beacon>

~# cat /tmp/wxnow.txt
Jul 27 2023 22:13
172/007g016t034r000p000P000h67b10105

Aprs.fi 

Error 

2023-07-27 22:21:21 BST: MB7UWR-10>APRX29,TCPIP*,qAC,T2CSNGRAD:Jul 27 2023 22:13 [Unsupported packet format]

I don’t think the “WIDE2-2” should be in quotes.

Hi 

I amended my beacon format in the conf file to

<beacon>
beacon srccall M0PJA-10 file /tmp/wxnow.txt
beaconmode both
cycle-size 10m
#beacon symbol "/_" $myloc comment "WX in South Yorkshire" via WIDE2-2
</beacon>

from the aprx-rf.log I see

2023-08-02 15:13:23.418 MB7UWR-10 T M0PJA-10>APRX29,MB7UWR-10*:122/009g018t061r000p000P000h32b10067

aprs.fi has it as 2023-08-02 15:56:13 BST: M0PJA-10>APRX29,TCPIP*,qAS,MB7UWR-10:122/009g018t061r000p000P000h32b10067 [Unsupported packet format]

my wxnow.txt file is 

cat /tmp/wxnow.txt
122/009g018t061r000p000P000h32b10067


As I understand it - please correct me if I am wrong 

this relates to

122/009g018t061r000p000P000h32b10067

122 wind dir
009 wind speed
g018 wind gust
t061 temp
r000 rain in the last hour
p000 rain past 24h
P000 rain since midnight
h32 humidity
b10067 barometric pressure

So I am not sure what I am doing wrong 

any help /advise welcome

regards

Paul

The format in the Cumulus textfiler is not correct to aprs wx filformat. I made a conversionscript many years ago but now I am using another weather program.
