After attaching some 1wire temperature sensors to the USB port of my D-Link DIR-825 WLAN router running OpenWRT, and making aprx transmit the temperatures in the new base91 comment telemetry format, I felt like improving the telemetry display on aprs.fi a bit.
Current telemetry values are now shown in the info balloon of a station on the real-time map.
I always thought that many telemetry transmitters are only utilizing a few channels, and the other channels should not be shown. So here goes, now you can configure which channels are shown. If any channel names have been sent using the "PARM." message, only those channels (and bits) are displayed in the current telemetry values summary. If no names have been sent, all 5 analog channels and 8 bits are shown.
The telemetry coefficients transmitted with the EQNS. message now stores 5 decimal digits instead of 3. Base91 comment telemetry supports 13 bits of resolution (values 0 to 8280), which often needs to be scaled down to a range such as -55...+125C for temperature. More decimals in the multiplier and exponent parts help in making it accurate.
