Xastir -- is a program for receiving and plotting APRS™ position packets. Development is a collaborative effort of programmers from around the world. Xastir supports many map formats and is highly customizable.


Xastir runs on Windows/MacOSX/Linux/FreeBSD/Solaris/Linspire/HPUX, with many more possible. It supports 125 map formats, several types of TNC's and weather stations, Festival speech synthesizer, AX.25 networking (Soundmodem/Baycom/SCC!) and seven languages!. On Unix-like operating systems, you can run your weather station or GPS on a separate computer as well, which is good for those hams who are already short on serial ports.
