RE: [BPQ32] Beacons
- ID frames are always sent to ID and from the Node Call,. This can't be changed, but can be disabled by setting IDINTERVAL to zero.Beacons are sent to the PORT UNPROTO path, and won't be sent if UNPROTO isn't defined. The FROM call will bethe PORT BCALL param if specified else APPLICATION 1 call if specified, else the Node Call.You can't send beacons from more than one call, though you can include in the text of the beacon what calls are availible - eg"Connect to mycall-8 for BBS mycall-10 for RMS"73.

Subject: [BPQ32] Beacons
I'm using a very simple bpq32.cfg set up. No networking to other nodes etc.My Node call is mycall-2, The RMS/CMS mycall-10 and BBS mycall-8.
A beacon broadcasts mycall-2 every few minutes which I don't want. I would like to see mycall-10 (and if possible mycall-8)broadcast. This centers around "beacons" somewhere and am wading through examples.
