Does your transceiver transmit it's location to the server periodically? If not, then your transceiver will not show up on the APRS map.

Also if you are manually transmitting then make sure you press the PTT for at least 2-3 seconds to allow time for the transceiver to transmit it's location to the server.

Ohhh, how may this work? I do not know.

I don't know if the FT3D supports periodic location transmit. Check the user manual (not the APRS periodic location transmit - the transceiver needs to send the location in the C4FM data stream).

pretty sure the radio only sends out position info when you PTT in digital mode. it may send out periodic positions in analog APRS mode, but that won't work through the OS3.
