Ian, Here are the two outputs with the comp button on and off. <SOH>00uVE7CUS:6 .Q$-A%H y jpskmail 0.6.0c80DB<EOT> <SOH>00uVE7CUS:26 !4904.13N/12305.40Wyjpskmail 0.6.0c05F7<EOT> Darrel, VE7CUS
Hi DarrelThe compressed string (the first one above) doesn't make sense, almost certainly because it may contain non-printable ASCII characters -- one of the features of compressed format.
Can you tell me what the characters are between the colon (:) and "jpskmail", in hexadecimal. For example, at the moment they look like:
0x36 6 0x20 space 0x2e . 0x51 Q 0x24 $ 0x2d - 0x41 A 0x25 % 0x48 H 0x20 space 0x20 space 0x79 y 0x20 spaceI suspect (some of) the spaces aren't really spaces, and there may be some other characters that don't appear here at all.
In particular, I suspect the first character after the colon (preceding the "6") is actually the non-printing 0x1c (or possibly 0x1d), which is the APRS Data Type Identifier for compressed data.
