Project description


Build Status PyPi Version Coverage Status

A python3 module for the Open Glider Network. It can be used to connect to the OGN-APRS-Servers and to parse APRS-/OGN-Messages.

A full featured gateway with build-in database is provided by ogn-python.


python-ogn-client is available at PyPI. So for installation simply use pip:

pip install ogn-client

Example Usage

Parse APRS/OGN packet.

from ogn.parser import parse
from datetime import datetime

beacon = parse("FLRDDDEAD>APRS,qAS,EDER:/114500h5029.86N/00956.98E'342/049/A=005524 id0ADDDEAD -454fpm -1.1rot 8.8dB 0e +51.2kHz gps4x5",
				reference_timestamp=datetime(2015, 07, 31, 12, 34, 56))

Connect to OGN and display all incoming beacons.

from ogn.client import AprsClient
from ogn.parser import parse, ParseError

def process_beacon(raw_message):
        beacon = parse(raw_message)
        print('Received {aprs_type}: {raw_message}'.format(**beacon))
    except ParseError as e:
        print('Error, {}'.format(e.message))

client = AprsClient(aprs_user='N0CALL')

try:, autoreconnect=True)
except KeyboardInterrupt:
    print('\nStop ogn gateway')

Connect to telnet console and display all decoded beacons.

from ogn.client import TelnetClient
from ogn.parser.telnet_parser import parse

def process_beacon(raw_message):
    beacon = parse(raw_message)
    if beacon:

client = TelnetClient()

except KeyboardInterrupt:
    print('\nStop ogn gateway')
