      Relax … It should never happen.. I guess someone could hose up their configuration.. and cause havoc… But let’s hope not…


      If it were to happen we should calmly inform them and ask them to correct it..


      I am not sure there would be a way to program into BPQ a WAY to make it Impossible..


      It’s a lot like all the other things a SYSOP could do wrong, Each Sysop must know what they are doing.. and when something happens or if in doubt they should seek assistance..

      I hope the aprs type messages don't start apearing on the let's say normal packet freq's

      that would destroy a packet node system. with all the beaconing going out.I think would be great if for sure kept on the APRS Freq.

      Jeez. . . .every once in a while it becomes apparent the extent of involvement

      you have with some of this stuff, m'man. 


      I've got the BPQ APRS thingie working.  Map looks great, lots of activity.  I change

      the filter to 80 miles I think it says.


      APRS Messages window has a provision for what appears to be a simple, single line messaging

      editor.  Do I use that for simple "Howdy" messages to a station now, as is, or do I need wait to

      have another VHF radio  connected through an interface like RigBlaster and tuned to 144.390 first?

      I use Ambient Weathers VWS Virtual Weather Station Software and use the wxreport.txt file it generates to send my weather station info thru the BPQ32 APRS System.  On the weather map page you select the file to use.. VWS updates this file at whatever interval you sent in VWS and then you can set the interval that it gets transmitted thru BPQAPRS/ 73
