APRS Server traffic filter setup page 07-05-2015

Here is a short information how to setup a traffic filter for the UI-View Software. If you using a APRS Server with  10152 port you getting about 4000-7000 stations worldwide on the map.

The best way is using a APRS Server with a filter port 14580. If you install the UI-view software this port 14580 is not in the listing, so you have to edit or replaced a server in the UIVIEW32.INI file.

Windows-XP the file is in the main directory c:\programfiles\peaksystem\uiview32 there you will find the uiview32.ini (configuration) file.

Or look for this directory c:\programs\uiview32 there you will find the uiview32.ini (configuration) file.

Note-1: If you using Windows-7,8 best way install and use a new directory like c:\programs\ui-view32 software here !!! (Do not use programfiles\peaksystem)

The new APRS Server line text should edit or replace at the near end bottom page make this asia.aprs2.net:14580 after finish saved it.

Then restart the UI-View Software again and go to setup top screen main menu and select aprs server setup.
See below the pictures select the a new filter server for example asia.aprs2.net:14580 or sydney.aprs2.net:14580. Select only 1 server !!
Make sure you typ in the validation number this 4 or 5 digit number comes with the registration for connection using via the internet.
Typ in the log-on text see photo again after finish all close it, and go to action to connect to APRS Server and see what happen.

The best way is for you to use a asian Japan filter server what is near your country see below 1,2,3,4,5,6  and use this filter text
** filter a/55/64/-10/178 **
This special filter text I give it the name Asianblock filter with this you will see stations from India to Guam.
When using a server from the list below you can also see stations from other countrys like USA,Germany,UK,Sweden ect ect
------------------------------------------------------------
(1) asia.aprs2.net:14580 Asia filter
(2) sydney.aprs2.net:14580 Aus filter
(3) saitama.aprs2.net:14580
(4) tokyo.aprs2.net:14580
(5) j-net.aprs2.net:14580
(6) fukuoka.aprs2.net:14580

Note-2: Remember select only 1 server near your location !!!


Have a good look the Extra log-on text.

1 Left picture show a setting with the Asian filter block setup.

2 Right picture show the filter setting with country prefix like a /JA/JD/VU/HZ/BD for Japan,India,Saudia-Arabia,China You always can edit this to see other country`s (Remember all UPERCASE !!

3 Or if you like to see all asian stations from India, Japan,Indonesia,Malaysia,Philippines,Guam use this filter text.filter a/55/64/-10/178

4 If you like to see from Lebanon Saudia-Arabia India Indonesia China Japan to Guam use this.filter a/47/31/-10/179

5 You also can combine a filter text like: filter a/47/31/-10/179 p/W/VE3  to see included all W and VE3 stations.

You will see with this setting only about 25 - 400 stations, so is much better for the internet bandwidth use.
