[aprssig] APRS beaconing and bulletins

APRSdata was designed for that purpose but it is more than a decade old and
I lost the source, so don’t waste your time... trying to run it under dos.

Several other programs can do that. My YAAC ("Yet Another APRS Client")
program can do multiple beacons, objects, and bulletins at various
independent update rates, plus weather data. It also accepts data from
other sources so you could have a satellite orbit prediction program feed
upcoming horizon breaks to APRS.

I can't speak for other software's capabilities.

Technically, the friend's weather data should be transmitted by his own
station (unless, of course, he isn't a licensed ham operator).

Just remember not to send so much so frequently that there's no room left
on the channel for someone else to get a packet in.

Hello, everyone.

I recently took up on myself to try and reanimate APRS in my region, since
all digis have disappeared.

Since I have a kind of a clean slate to begin with, I've been trying to
push more info onto our digi, mostly weather related, from both my own
weather station and a friend's. I also "punch in" by hand next pass
requests to SATSRV, form times to times.

I like to expand on the ideia and include, automatically, as a Bulletin or
Beacon, other information, namely satellite passes, DX  information and HF
propagation values, to start with.

It looks like something like APRSData could fill some of these requests but
it is DOS only and I find it hard to deal with in DOS emulators.

I look at Direwolf and Soundmodem, for exemple, with TCP KISS capabilities
and it looks like a place to start but it is out of my skill range.

If anyone is doing any of this, how are you doing it? Is it even possible?
