Good afternoon, everyone.
The past 36 hours have brought forth some great enhancements in the performance and operation of Master Server 3103, and refinements to 3102 and 3108.
The GPS reporting functionality is now operating perfectly, and the links for APRS Location posting have been fine tuned. If you have a BrandMeister supported GPS radio (Motorola, Hytera, etc) than all should be functioning perfectly now.
Getting the APRS connections refined and tuned has made it possible for APRS Messaging to be enabled across the BM USA Servers. 3102, 3103, and 3108 now all support "APRS Messaging from radio to phone, phone to radio, radio to radio, and phone to phone." We've tested it also with a number of things such as WxBot, and find it to perform much better than we expected. Check the BM Wiki for info on how to use it, if you are not already familiar.
The BrandMeister USA Shark RF IP Protocol Server is now fully tested and available from our high speed server farm in Chicago. We will be releasing more information on that in days to come, but we feel that it too is a fun facility and perhaps a valuable resource for many with the SharkRF openSPOT's who would like to implement a more private network of their own.
As we continue on with the standardization ......
