What to do while unemployed ? Answer, Program and app to decode ham radio APRS packet (Automatic Packet Reporting System) in C++ . Time for an update. The upper left window is putty is Dire Wolf running on a Raspberry Pi, decoding APRS packet from my radio. The bottom left is my application in action decoding packet data from dire wolf via virtual serial port : it shows the Raw AX25 packet (Raw Kiss hex), then the packet ID byte, decodes source address -> destination address , SSI D, and digi repeater address. The rest shows the rest of the packet in ASCII and hex for future development and debugging packet decoding functions . as you can see the status message “Packet Type >” is almost decoded.
Next phase to develop the functions to decode the position and telemetry data.
