Viewing the map

We have a visual map of the AMPR network available, on which users can choose to voluntarily publish their callsign/locator, which is then shown on a vector map of the world. Generally, the positions will time out after 1 hour.

On click on the dots on the map, additional information will be shown: type, IP, locator and seconds since the last information received.

No information are permanently stored on the server side.

To opt out, just stop sending position reports...

Some technical info:

The server uses the following incoming ports:
  - ampr-ripd uses UDP/59001,
  - amprd uses UDP/59002,
  - all other http requests use TCP/59001
Map events sent to your browser are in json format and use websockets or event-stream as a fallback.

The map can be reached via these URLs:

Sending the location to the map

Depending on your system setup and node type, there are 5 methods to get your positions on the map.

Please replace the callsign and position with your own in the given examples.

Position reports are case insensitive and will all be converted to upper case.

1. ampr-ripd

Add the parameter '-L <callsign@<locator>' to the ampr-ripd command line.

ampr-ripd [...other parameters...] -L N0CALL-T@kn01aa

Positions will be shown as green dots.

2. amprd

Add your locator in the configuration file, under your interface section:

call_home = YO2LOJ-T@KN05or

Positions will be shown as blue dots.

3. Mikrotik routers

Set up a cyclic job to run a script in which you request a specific URL, using the command, e.g. every 5 minutes:

/tool fetch mode=http url="" keep-result=no

Positions will be shown as pink dots.

4. 'Radio' positions

These positions are dedicated to stations not directly reachable via 44net, and are sent out by other systems in their name.

To do this, do a periodic fetch on the following URL:

For radio stations, the position time-out is 3 hours.

Positions will be shown as yellow antenna symbols.

5. Generic position reports

For other (generic) systems, do a periodic fetch on the following URL:

Positions will be shown as grey dots.
