New APRS2SOTA Gateway in Japan

Hello all and especially @SOTAPRS @JL1NIE

on today’s activation I noticed that there seems to be a new APRS2SOTA Gateway available.

I sent out my spot on my APRS Handheld and got spotted instantly by the APRS2SOTA Gateway by G0LGS as always! But then I received another message from JL1NIE-10 saying that my APRS message has an unknown command!

Just had a look at the blog of JL1NIE (http://jl1nie.hatenablog.com/) but could not get further details … unfortunately my japanese is a bit rusty :slight_smile:

Any information about the new APRS2SOTA Gateway would be nice! And how to prevent getting these error messages!

Hi Martin,

I’m very sorry for your inconvenience.
This was caused by my program which monitors activator’s location with APRS beacon in order to send a welcome message with the latest spot information.
I’ve already fixed this problem and will never bother you again.

Thank you very much for your quick reply and for fixing the problem.

If you are a registered APRS2SOTA user you can send APRS messages to APRS2SOTA (or even G0LGS-6) as well as to SOTA.
