If I want to send Space Weather on local RF do I use the "." (period) data
type and, if so, is there a format defined?
If not, should I arbitrarily construct a format to be sent as an
Page 17 (PDF v 1.0.1) of the Protocol Reference says 'reserved'. I've
looked at http://www.aprs.org/aprs12.html and searched but don't see any
update to 1.0.1
I am assuming 'space weather' to be current observations (SFI, Ap, Kp,
Speed, Density, Bz, Bt) and not space weather Alerts, am I correct in that?
Would hourly transmission to RF be suitable/advisable? (I'm keen to hear
opinions on whether this is useful data at all)
Am I also right in thinking I should add RFONLY (keep off APRS-IS)
Sorry for the Question Bomb!
Thanks and 73,
