  WX3in1 Plus 2.0 - APRS Advanced Digipeater/I-Gate  

APRS client


WX3in1 Plus 2.0 allows you to generate APRS data packets with information field defined by user and send them in a specified interval. In this way, it is possible to send beacons, objects, weather and telemetry data.

APRS digipeater


The main purpose of the device is receiving and sending APRS data packets via amateur radio transceiver. WX3in1 Plus 2.0 is capable of receiving an APRS packet, decoding the sender, recipent, path and information field. Then actions are performed in accordance with the options configured by user:

- Packet is digipeated via the APRS network,
- Packet is sent to the APRS-IS server,
- Packet is ignored if it was corrupted.
Device firmware implements the following mechanisms:
- Checksum Verification - packets with errors are ignored,
- Anti-flood - packets repeated in a short time interval are not forwarded,
- Path checking - a decision whether to digipeat a packet or not is made using a filter stored in configuration data

 of the device. User defines whether to forward WIDE1-1, WIDEn-N, SPn-N, or local path packets and the 

RF -> APRS-IS forwarding (I-Gate) maximum value of N (so called New-N paradigm),
- Callsign filter - a simple callsign filter allows you to add stations to black list (these stations will be ignored) or white list (only these stations will be digipeated).

WX3in1 Plus 2.0 allows you to connect to APRS-IS server network. After logging to selected server, it is possible to gate data received from the APRS radio network. All packets with correct format and checksum are forwarded to APRS-IS.

APRS-IS -> RF forwarding
The device allows you to receive packets from APRS-IS server. Then a decision is made whether to gate a packet to RF or not. It is possible to forward different types of packets based on a filter defined in device configuration. APRS message packets can be forwarded to stations which were heard on RF within limited number of digi-hops (local RF), and they are repeated up to 3 times in case of no ACK packet received from message recipient. 

Weather station support
WX3in1 Plus 2.0 allows you to receive weather information from weather stations via the RS-232 cable. Data is then encoded into the APRS packet and may be sent to APRS network at specified intervals. Additionally WX3in1 Plus 2.0 allows you to send weather data to APRS-IS server.
