FW: xastir as a satellite ground station (suggestions)



Hi,

Using xastir as a satellite ground station - cause aprsd does not do server
filtering

I notice a few things that could be addressed to make it more user friendly
?
1) XASTIR passes local posit info to INET from RF but seems to not pass
TELEM from satellite (which is what I am after)
example - tnc.log (shows local tnc posits)

example - igate.log (shows igate of local posit)

igate.log - missing igate data (but local poist stuff goes ok as above)

2) Because the log files do not have the date / time out the front, it makes
it really hard to use the data for a web page (or search)
<how come you need to write so many date and times to the log files ?>

Is it possible to get :- (or make a flag, "DATE OUT FRONT" , and format
"DD/MM/YYYY HH:MM:SS"

This way you can write cgi web pages to filter on a match on a per line
basis.
