converting unix timestamp in javascript

let unix_timestamp = 1549312452
// Create a new JavaScript Date object based on the timestamp
// multiplied by 1000 so that the argument is in milliseconds, not seconds.
var date = new Date(unix_timestamp * 1000);
// Hours part from the timestamp
var hours = date.getHours();
// Minutes part from the timestamp
var minutes = "0" + date.getMinutes();
// Seconds part from the timestamp
var seconds = "0" + date.getSeconds();

// Will display time in 10:30:23 format
var formattedTime = hours + ':' + minutes.substr(-2) + ':' + seconds.substr(-2);

Thoughts on radio setups ...

Thinking about establishing communication networks for off-grid locations ...


Cellular coverage is spotty. If it's available, then it's a good system; it's what people are used to; but it can also be fragile to power outages.

ideas: find the nodejs way of interpreting APRS

make a system that can get some standard message formats from internet / local lora, and combine with APRS, and show

make a 'feedmap' for belfast that shows all the gps feeds on one map
