To Do

   Add Wx on Table

   I will look at adding wildcard filters for incoming data – such as auto
monitor only. Or for wildcard ignore

   Make TCP server re-entrant

   Add the ability to add Wx information by hand

   Add the ability to click on a stationto view the current data.


Add messaging

   Add beaconing

   Internet unstable connections

   Add RDF

   Auto-Reconnect on Internet streams

   Status of incoming internet stream

   Document about the moving map functions.

   Add the capability for multiple tracking.

   Change colour of waypoints on how old etc.

   Fix Save Waypoints message

   Add the ability to read UI-View style TNC config files

   TCP/IP Keep Connected

Done – Stuff that was on the ToDo list (May not be online yet)

   GPRS/IMEI Telnet in on server
Import UIView Overlay Files – Andrew McDade

   Save Tracked Callsigns

   Server for NetGPS

   Add popup for details on particular stations

   Add Time.Date to upload to OziExplorer

   Add weather decode


Access Integration

   Add uploaded time to description in Ozi

   Cache positions for server connect

   Login to APRS server

   Fixed the reporting of packet line for GOOD packets

   Record if the positions are outside of the limits, or not being
uploaded to OziExplorer

   Added GPGLL decoding

   Added the ability to log into a server

   Added the ability to send a filter command on connect

   No use decoding stand along Wx yet as there is no way to send it to Ozi

   Identify unrecognised packets

   Log File: Simply the raw packets in a text file is all that would be needed,
possibly marking those that OziAPRS uses with one character, and discarded
ones with another, unless a separate character were devised to indicate why
discarded packets weren’t used, like DUPE, FORMAT ERROR, and OTHER (MSG,
BUL, WX, …). The log filename and location could be fixed (/OziAPRS.log), so the user renames one file if it needs to be

   Add Access database integration

   I am working on getting all positions from UI-View to upload to

   Add sort on Time.Date

   Geographical filtering

   Added a column on the table saying where the data came from

   Added some support for Microsoft Access

   I have added a statistics page under the help menu. This shows the
number of packets processed and the number without errors. The number
without errors may seem low, but not all packet types are being decoded such
as messages.

   The version of the software can now be obtained from the Help About
menu, or RightClick Properties on the executable from windows explorer.

   The position errors have been fixed as far as I can tell.

   The problem with 1000 waypoints in Oziexplorer has been worked arround.
Now when more than 1000 positions comes in, new stations will not be
uploaded to OziExplorer. The exception to this is if ‘monitor only selected
stations’ is set.

   You may plug a TNC-2 into COM1 with 9600 8N1 and have the data seen by
the software. No other speeds or COM Ports are supported yet

   Downloads position data direct from UI-View, allowing UI-VIEW to be
used to manage the connection to the TNC, or the connection to the Internet.
Any positions that UI-View sees will be sent to OziExplorer, and any TCP/IP

   The ability to select which stations are displayed on the map. If you
do not wish all stations to appear, select Monitor|Upload Only Selected
Stations, and then select the stations you wish to monitor.

   If you wish to add a waypoint, start the program as normal, and double
click on OziExplorer on the map. A dialog will appear asking you to enter a
callsign. Enter the data, and then the information will appear in
OziExplorer, in the OziAPRS table and sent out onto the net.

   You can now double click to move a waypoint too… Bit it will only
move if it can be uploaded according to the rules – that is if you have
selected monitor only selected packets, the object will move for other
users, but not for you, since it should not be on your screen anyway.

   The frame now automatically moves to the bottom of your screen.

   For testing the server aprs.net.au:10153 works well without providing
too much data


   warning not to sort waypoints in OziExplorer while OziAPRS is
accumulating waypoints.

   Sometimes the connection to the server takes a little while to

   If there is an error connecting to a server no error is reported


   Some positions are appearing in the incorrect location. This is a bug
with the library and will and will be fixed asap. Fixed 20/Feb/03

   All Stations were being notified as WX stations even if they are not.
Fixed 27/2/03

   Fixed an issue with COM port always going to COM4 27/Feb/03
