Icon in APRS

Post by jchongkoon »

APRS.jpg
I'm trying to change the icon in aprs.fi and it can not be done in the openSPOT. It appears as a seismic movement.

I have searched all the tabs and I can not find where to do it.

You can tell me how it is done, you who have more experience.

Regards,

Sincerely,

The used APRS symbol is hard coded in the script at the BrandMeister server you are connected to. There is no way to change it in the openspot. 73 de Veijo OH3NFC

I just noticed that another colleague from Panama has his openSPOT and appears with another icon.

If this colleague has his icon with a house then you can. I called him and asked him and he has no knowledge of how he did it.

Log into Brandmeister and look under your "self-care" settings. There you can click on your APRS icon and a selection of choices will appear.

If your server is using the bm2aprs script then you need to change the ARS/RRS ID in your radio between 5050-5059.

I thank you very much for your help but I have no idea what you are talking about or how it changes.

If you give me the steps of how to do it, I would appreciate it

Please contact your local Brandmeister server coordinators (K4LCT, HP2LCT) for further information.

I already talked to K4LCT and he tells me that I talk to the Brandmeister administrators and they said it can not be changed but the weirdest thing is that the HP2SM colleague could
