FaradayRF Telemetry

Few radio amateurs use the telemetry functionality of APRS. We count telemetry as any standard or BASE91 telemetry packet. Over a 24 hour period we’ve observed around 44 distinct stations with an average of 13 stations sending telemetry over 5 minute periods. This pales in comparison to the entire APRS-IS stream which in 24 hours Read more about FaradayRF Telemetry[…]

Introducing aprs2influxdb

We’ve been hard at work on #LaunchWithFaraday moving ever so closer to an awesome ham radio buoy. This pushed us to focus to improve telemetry support. In doing so we realized that remote telemetry is one of the things that amateur radio can absolutely thrive at. The current support for it in the hobby is Read more about Introducing aprs2influxdb[…]

Raspberry Pi Gets A Faraday & Things Get Sticky

During the past two weeks we’ve made some significant progress with our Telemetry and APRS software. These are both efforts to shape up our software for the #LaunchWithFaraday campaign where we aim to build several buoys and high altitude balloons using Faraday technology. Everyone benefits because Faraday gets better along the way and will soon Read more about Raspberry Pi Gets A Faraday & Things Get Sticky[…]

How to Setup aprs.fi Alerts

During the latest testing of faraday-aprs software for our #LaunchWithFaraday projects it has been helpful to use aprs.fi alerts. This doesn’t seem to be a well-known feature and I wanted to share it in a quick blog post! Receive Email Alerts From aprs.fi You can setup aprs.fi to email you an alert message given a Read more about How to Setup aprs.fi Alerts[…]

Using the Telemetry and APRS Applications

Faraday owners will find that the Telemetry and APRS applications are fun to play with. We encourage you to play with them shortly after going through the Quickstart guide! Telemetry Out of the box, a GPS enabled Faraday is quite capable. The GPS provides location awareness for Faraday without extra hardware. It is also a Read more about Using the Telemetry and APRS Applications[…]
