I should have responded to this earlier.

YAAC will support Item-in-Msg in the build coming out today for Dayton (it had a bug in previous builds that broke its intended support). It also will support making QRU queries and responding to them (if it has any QRU tagged objects being locally announced).

APRSIS32 attempts to use item as a message
if it thinks the other client is capable, and is certainly capable of receiving
item in msg format packets and displaying them

format. Implemented?


Does anyone know if any client has implemented the ITEM-IN-MSG format?


We have a great opportunity to use it for the tracking of the Solar
Impulse cross-country flight this month, but I need to know how well this 5
year old APRS1.2 initiative has been implemented.


Since it wont really work well until all Clients implement it, there is
a short cut we could implement that will work at least in the areas of Igates
using new code.  I wonder if we can get it into APRSisce, and YAAC,
AGWpacket engine and other client IGates?


The modified-short-gap protocol wouild work like this.


If the IGATE receives a message with an ITEM-IN-MSG format, the IGATE
will pass that ITEM as an OBJECT out to local RF.  Done.


This way, we don’t have to wait for every client in an area to
implement it, but just the local IGate.  Then everyone in that area will
see the centrally generated object without any local interaction.


Is this something we can do quickly for the next flight of the Solar
Impulse flight?
