APRS Callpass generator

What, why?

This is a tiny thing I decided to build because I got tired of people waiting for other people to give them their APRS code. Some wait times reach weeks long.

This is a much faster solution which aims to remove emails and wait times. Less hassle for humans, less pissoff-ery for the person needing their code.

Requirements

  • Python 2
  • Interwebz connection
  • webpy (optional)

How it works

Give it a callsign, it checks for the validity of the callsign (so, US only at the moment) and bothers to generate the code if the call is valid.

TODO

  • Find a license data source which is more comprehensive than the FCC. ( Do NOT suggest QRZ )
  • Doesn't currently identify cancelled licenses because I don't know if that has a consistent entry in the database.

CREDITS

  • xastir xastir (released under a compatible GPL license) is a cool peice of software. Thanks for the callpass hash method. I wouldn't have known where else to find it.

  • callook callook (callook.info) is a (very) fast, well behaved amateur license database. Uses data from the FCC, but has vastly greater performance!
