See https://www.reddit.com/r/HamRadio/comments/yo4moe/i_created_a_hrwa_ham_radio_web_access_server/ for the first version that used FLDigi
I have successfully ported the RWS (now called VRWS) to VARA! My server is running on 14.110 MHz, 2300 Hz bandwidth (but both 500 Hz and 2300 Hz connections will be accepted).
Using the server, you can fetch raw HTML from a given website, do a DuckDuckGo search, look up the weather for a given city/state, download files from the web, view and create posts that anyone using a copy of my server can see, and check what other people have been doing on the server. More features are being added as fast as I can think of them!
All results from the web are put through a content filter so it stays legal.
You can use VarAC, VARA Chat, and possibly vARIM to connect to the server. All you need to do is send a connection request to "KJ7QQG" OR send out a CQ and if your signal can be decoded by the modem, it will automatically reply. In the future, if the server becomes popular, it will be more practical to just call out a CQ because you will not be able to know what servers are active that you can reach at any given time; calling CQ will prompt ANY server that can hear you to respond.
Here is where you can download the server:
The version labeled "vrws" is the VARA version, "rws1.3" is the latest version that works with FLDigi.
Start your VARA modem first, then run the .jar file. If you mix up the order, it will instantly error out saying "Connection refused". After you run the file, input your exact callsign (with capital letters) and the server will start. You will be able to see all VARA commands and data as well as special logs that the server will create from the command line that you executed the .jar from.
I would like to promote this project on the VarAC extensions section on the website if you are OK with it. please LMK
Awesome project !!
Here is what I get when I run the server and try to connect to it using VarAC in another Radio!
Any ideas of what could be wrong? Nobody else is on the frequency!
