Well - Google found this




I took the first link provided and looked at the first few entries and there
are emails for sysops who will give you a "passcode"

Apparently the passcode is generated from an algorithm using your call+SSID
as input. 

I have not tried it (yet)

Subject: [App_rpt-users] aprs password for app_gps


I would like to set up my allstarlink system to report position information
to the aprs system. 


Can someone tell me how to set up this password?  Also, are the default
server and port listed in the example below what should be used?  

I have searched the aprs site and couldn't find who to request this
information from.

There have (obviously) been some changes/improvements made to the
Echolink and APRS/GPS subsystems within app_rpt.

Included in these is the ability for a node to report its "fixed" GPS
to the APRS network, even if it does not have a GPS receiver connected.

Please see the following:

Setting up Echolink Connectivity

Setting Up APRS and GPS Configuration

Of course, the latest copies of app_gps and chan_echolink need to be
downloaded from the SVN.
