aprspy - An APRS packet parser for Python

version license build docs issues coverage-status

Introduction

The intention of the module is to provide a way to decode and encode various different types of APRS packets.

Currently supports:-

  • Decoding - Standard compressed/uncompressed location packets (PositionPacket) - Mic-E location packets (MICEPacket) - Message packets (MessagePacket) - Status report packets (StatusPacket)
  • Encoding - Compressed/uncompressed locations - PHG/DFS/RNG values

Note that encoding entire packets is planned, but not yet supported.

Usage

Brief usage explanation:

>>> from aprspy import APRS
>>> packet = APRS.parse('XX1XX>APRS,TCPIP*,qAC,FOURTH:=5030.50N/10020.30W$221/000/A=005Test packet')
>>> packet
<PositionPacket: XX1XX>
>>> packet.latitude
50.508333
>>> packet.longitude
-100.338333
>>> packet.course
221
