How it Works
This page is a work in progress
All commands are sent via APRS message to
Get current weather conditions for your location, a city, or a grid square.
Get current weather conditions for your location.
- @WX [city]
Get current weather conditions for a city.
- @GRIDWX [grid square]
Get current weather conditions for specific grid square.
Maidenhead Grid Square
Give your location as a maidenhead grid square. Find the maidenhead grid square of another APRS station.
Get your last known position as a maidenhead grid square.
- @LOC [station callsign w/ SSID]
Get maidenhead grid square of last known position of another station.
Find name and city of US callsign
Find out the name and city of a licensee via APRS.
- @CALL [callsign]
Get name and city of US licensee.
Anytime a message is received with the post command (@P), a new post is created. Posts are sorted by callsign(without APRS SSID). For example, N0CALL-7 becomes N0CALL. A tag is assigned to each post with the callsign and SSID to allow sorting by specific APRS stations. See tags.
See User Posts for list of posts by callsign.
Each post is assigned an ID. This ID is used for retrieval of post via APRS and for deletion command.
Any user can post and retrieve via APRS message.
Please note that all commands are case sensitive. Also note the spacing is sensitive as well.
When adding a custom ID and Title, @T must come before @I in the APRS message, see below.
- @P[post content]
Add a post to database and website.

- @T[custom title for post] Add a custom title to your post.

Users can send a message to generate a tiny page. A tiny page is a retrievable piece of information via APRS message. A tiny page can also be viewed like a website. See https://example.armds.net for an example. Tiny pages must have a title. You can view a tiny page by entering its title followed by .armds.net. For example, to view the tiny page with a title of Example, enter https://example.armds.net in your URL bar.
