pe1rxf-aprs-server

A dual band APRS digipeater with enhanced telemetry capabilities.

This is the custom software for a self build two band APRS digipeater. It runs on a Raspberry Pi Zero with Raspberry Pi OS Bullseye.

In short

It can:

* Function as a normal digipeater (mono, dual, threefold or cross band)
* Work as an IGate (RX only or RX/TX)
* Send and receive APRS messages
* Display some basic statistics like heard stations.
* Process and display data from the custom telemetry devices from PE1RXF
* Forwards PE1RXF telemtry from APRS to MQTT and vice versa

In has (hardware):

* Two build in 1200bps AFSK modems
* Build in LoRa transceiver (SX1278)
* Build in FM transceiver
* Connector for external (second) transceiver
* Two USB ports for a network adapter and something else
* Real Time Clock
* Raspberry Pi Zero

It has (software):

* APRX digipeater software for the basic functions
* Apache2 web server for the user interface
* LoRa KISS TNC support (repository found at https://git.meezenest.nl/marcel/RPi-LoRa-KISS-TNC)
* Custom software (from this repository) for extra functionality

MQTT support

The programs "aprs_telemetry_to_mqtt" and "aprs-mqtt-bridge" are included, but are published separately in my git repo. The ones included work with this version. The ones published separately might or might not work.
