I'm all the time busy and busy, next week on travel, again (now CA). Just 
some thoughts about APRS and Vista. Maybe you are familiar with them all, 
maybe not. I upgraded my OS to Windows Vista Ultimate. There was problem 
with Precision Mapping 8, installed not running, some files missing. In 
contact with Under Tow Software support, probably in few weeks should be 
upgrade for Vista comps. So, I use PMap7 installed and run smoothly under 
Vista. No problem at all with PMapServer707
Another APRS issue, UI-View is running under Vista, problem is with new help 
files format http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917607
I've installed ALogger 3.0.0 and there is no problem at all. Even help files 
are showing up. Great! The KISS option is very practical. Is possible to add 
another option in ALogger for AGWPE connection. In such case you can use one 
piece of TNC/radio/antenna for many programs. Also you can connect to remote 
If you want to try connect to my APRS station in Poland, use AGWPE 
connection to sr3wxa.no-ip.org port 8000
Then you can log local true RF traffic.

Subject: [aprssig] ALogger 3.0.0 released, KISS and remote client support

ALogger 3.0.0 has been released.  This version includes support for KISS
TNC's and the ability for remote clients to access an attached TNC or
D7/D700 as well as logged packets from the APRS-IS.

The remote client capability was designed primarily to permit remote control
of a PCSAT or similar Earth Station over the Internet and to monitor all
radio/TNC traffic.

Remote clients can connect to the ALogger session using a TelNet like
connection (HyperTerminal etc) to receive all logged packets and
communications to and from an attached serial device.  Write access to the
attached serial device and APRS-IS is password protected, while other users
will have read only access.

When used with a Virtual Serial Port (see
http://www.hw-group.com/products/hw_vsp/index_en.html ) applications can
obtain ALogger output, including Serial communications, via existing
application serial port interfaces.  For example, it will now be possible
for APRS-DOS to connect to an ALogger session via it's serial port and to
access the Internet for communications via the APRS-IS.

ALogger continues to provide the ability to log selected packets to disk for
later review, and to gate selected packets received over the serial port to
the APRS-IS.

ALogger 3.0.0 can be downloaded from http://www.billdiaz.dynip.com
