Today I released a new software tool to generate a KISS File from tcp sources (e.g. soundmodem or gr-satellites).
You don’t need the AGW interface anymore. Simply use the KISS server port 8100 and enable it.
-> Settings -> Server setup -> KISS Server Port 8100
If you run Dani’s, EA4GPZ gr-satellite tools on an Ubuntu machine (or even on a Raspberry Pi) you can easily add a TCP server in your flowgraph.
Configure the corresponding IP address of your Ubuntu machine or “localhost” for soundmodem and the port in the conf.ini file.
#TCP_SERVER = 192.168.178.28
#TCP_PORT = 52002
TCP_SERVER = localhost
TCP_PORT = 8100
All other settings are the same as for AGW OnlineKISS. Change the conf.ini parameters according to your local settings (QTH, call sign, path to TLE file etc.)
If you enable “filter if Sat not visible” then a timestamped KISS file will be written into your FILE_PATH directory -> e.g. D:/Radio/UWE-4/ only if the satellite is actually visible (elevation> 0).
Reports and suggestions for improvements are very much appreciated.
