A station has a name or identifier which is a callsign followed by an SSID. The station's name needs to be unique in it's sphere of operation. Most folks use their Amateur Radio callsign as the character part of their APRS station name. For example: N0CZK-4

  • ~ RF Station Name
  • ~~ 3-6 capital alphanumeric characters (callsign)
  • ~~ SSID of 0 -15
  • ~ Internet Station Name
  • ~~ 3-9 total alphanumeric characters up to 1 hyphen followed by 1 or 2 alphanumeric characters

[edit] SSID

For RF station names, the SSID part should use this recommendation:

  • -0 - Your primary station usually fixed and message capable
  • -1 - generic additional station, digi, mobile, wx, etc
  • -2 - generic additional station, digi, mobile, wx, etc
  • -3 - generic additional station, digi, mobile, wx, etc
  • -4 - generic additional station, digi, mobile, wx, etc
  • -5 - Other networks (Dstar, Iphones, Androids, Blackberry's etc)
  • -6 - Special activity, Satellite ops, camping or 6 meters, etc
  • -7 - walkie talkies, HT's or other human portable
  • -8 - boats, sailboats, RV's or second main mobile
  • -9 - Primary Mobile (usually message capable)
  • -10 - internet, Igates, echolink, winlink, AVRS, APRN, etc
  • -11 - balloons, aircraft, spacecraft, etc
  • -12 - APRStt, DTMF, RFID, devices, one-way trackers*, etc
