Finally Ailunce released a firmware added DMR APRS on HD1.
How does DMR APRS works?
The DMR radio (GPS version) sends an SMS message with GPS information to the MMDVM hotspot board -> mmdvm receives the data packet and forwards it to the BrandMeister (BM) server via the network -> the BM server forwards the GPS message packet to aprs.fi, thus Enables real-time viewing of positioning and movement trajectories on the aprs.fi website.
What do you need to get HD1 GPS position on aprs.fi?
5. Download HD1 software.
a. Set your DMR Callsign and ID.
b. Create a Private call for APRS, ID is 460999. this is dependings on which BM server you use. ID xxx999 is the Brandmesiter gataway to APRS, where xxx is your nearest country master server (204 for the Netherlands,222 for Italy, 206 for Belgium,etc)
c. Create APRS channel, frequency is same or reversal of your DMR hotspot frequency. Low power. Enable GPS in the channel setting.
d. Create other channel which you like standby on it. like TG91, TG3100, etc. Then creact a RX group list. Add this Rx group list to APRS channel. then when radio is on APRS channel, you can also listening on TG91 or TG3100.
