MyAPRS is officially using APRSC

After a while we're using javAPRSSvr but facing few problem so then we decide to try new build of APRSC.

Info of APRSC :-



aprsc (pronounced a-purrs-c) is a core APRS-IS server for Linux and Unix servers, and this is the official discussion group for aprsc-related matters. The discussion group can be used like a mailing list (you'll receive posts over email and can submit new posts from your mail client), or through the web view. If you're running aprsc on a server, I would like to strongly encourage you to receive the group over email so that you'll receive update announcements in a timely manner.


The software is brand new, under active development, and release cycles are currently very quick - be ready to upgrade on a short notice when new versions are announced. Like any new software, aprsc is likely to contain new bugs, and some upgrades might have a high priority. If you're not prepared to upgrade often, please wait for a few months – it should be more peaceful then. Documentation is pretty thin, too, but if you're an experienced APRS-IS server operator, there should be no big surprises around. 

aprsc has been designed strictly for use within the APRS-IS core, hub and Tier2 servers. It includes only the basic functionality required by those servers. It does not, and will not, have any additional functions such as igating, digipeating, interfacing to radios, D-PRS or other gateway functions, or object generation. It will not work on Windows. If you need a nice, compact igate software for Linux, please take a look at either aprsg, aprx, or aprs4r. If you need to run an APRS-IS server on Windows or some other platform not supported by aprsc, or if you need the features existing in javAPRSSrvr which are missing from aprsc, javAPRSSrvr is the right choice for you – it's got a lot of good features that many of you need, and it works on virtually all operating systems. If you need an igate for Windows, APRSIS32 should be good.

aprsc is open source, licensed under the BSD license. It has about 12000 lines of relatively clean C code, built using the usual ./configure && make && make install method. The embedded HTTP status server is built using the libevent2 library, no other extra libraries are needed. Linux and OS X are the main development environments and will receive premium support, but FreeBSD is known to work too. Packaged binaries for Debian and Ubuntu are available for super-easy installations and automatic upgrades.

aprsc has been developed between 2008 and 2012 by Matti Aarnio, OH2MQK (aprx), and Heikki Hannikainen, OH7LZB (aprs.fi).

Android with APRS

Dear all my APRS Friend..
you might want to consider the Android APRS application..
Easy setup, no other equipment involved rather than your Android either phone or tablet.. This is a free-version of Android Application..
The application that we're talking is U2APRS.. web at http://fujisangoro.web.fc2.com/u2aprs.html


U2APRS, what?

It is an APRS client application running on Google Android OS.

  • It locates your position using GPS, 3G, and WiFi, and uploads it to the APRS-IS.
  • It shows the APRS stations near you using the aprs.fi web (special thanks to Hessu OH7LZB).
  • It sends and receives APRS messages. It reads arrived APRS messages if the Text-To-Speech function is installed in the device. Speech recognition can be used to compose a message.

It has no interface to a radio transceiver.

Please bear in mind that U2APRS is in the developing phase and provided as beta software. Use it at your own risk. Thanks.



The latest version of U2APRS :-

When you start U2APRS for the first time, it will ask you to input your callsign. Input your call there. You might want to add SSID following your call, such as JA7UDE-5.
