This script is available for anybody who wants to design their own simple
web page and embed the latest APRS packet data for a specific station.
You just design your own HTML page, have it hosted anywhere you wish,
paste the desired variables wherever you want them to appear on the
page, and then pass your page's URL to this script, along with the
callsign of the station.
For instance, I've created a page in my personal space on another server:
You can see the variables
that appear in the page, such as "$call" and "$lat".
Those variables will be replaced with the actual data from the most recent
packet of the specified station...
Here is the same page when passed through the variable replacement script:
or you can call it like:
Just put your callsign and your web page's URL in place of W1AW (shown in red), and that's all there is to it.
In the first example URL above, you can optionally specify a protocol on the front of your URL if it's different
to view a list of all
possible variables. You can use this list to copy and paste them into your HTML page.
