Here is a question for the software gurus. I’m strictly hardware.
Amateur Radio operators are far and few in Australia especially away from the big cities. What we need down under are more Sgates to recover APRS data from the APRS satellites and send it to aunz.aprs2.net.
Easy enough to do with an Antenna, Raspberry Pi, rtl-sdr and direwolf. I had one running for a while.
I have 2 RPis for satnogs station 568 & 724 and one RPi for dump1090 running 24/7. I really don’t want to add another system when I basically have all the hardware already in my VHF 568 station. It already collects data on 145.825MHz and sends it to a database via the internet. (SatNOGS) My Solar panels are starting to struggle to keep the batteries topped up to run all this. (Winter down under)
If only there was a way to send this data to aunz.aprs2.net as well as to Satnogs.
Is it in the right format? AX.25? I don’t know.
Is it a wacky idea or can it be done? What are the show stoppers?
I know a lot is happening at the moment with all the new satellites so this may have to sit on the back burner for a while.
Thanks for thinking about it.
