Automatic Packet Reporting System (APRS™) (also known as "Automatic Position Reporting System") is an amateur radio based digital communication system for real-time exchange of digital information to users on the network. APRS was originally developed by Bob Bruninga, WB4APR more than 20 years ago. It has since evolved into a robust system of interconnected networks. Xastir is a computer application that provides client access to this network using the APRS protocol.
Xastir is an open source software project maintained by Developers and Contributors from all over the globe and is provided free under the GNU General Public License. From its early beginnings, Xastir has evolved into a very robust client with a rich feature set that rivals any other APRS client.
This wiki is intended to be a living, user-supported documentation of the Xastir APRS client. Unfortunately, due to repeated vandalism by persons unknown, we had to change the administrative policies to make it less easy to become a contributor to the site. Automated account creation has been disabled. In order to add an account, you must contact a sysadmin. This can be done on the Xastir mailing list.
