RE: [BPQ32] UZ7HO Packet Engine on multiple machines?
It is the path to the UZ7HO executable. I assume by Packet Engine you mean the UZ7HO modem. As it says in the docs:
The first line defines the IP address and Port of the UZ7HO TNC, and an optional PATH to the Soundmodem.exe file. If PATH is omitted, bpq32 won't start the SoundModem, and you will have to run the Soundmodem before starting bpq32.
If you want to run the Soundmodem on a separate machine, you can leave out the PATH and start it manually.
Here in Scotland I see APRS traffic on 14103 LSB (1700Hz Centre). There are stations in EU, including UZ7HO, running 300 and 600 baud at the same time on 28.140.5 USB, using 1200Hz centre for 300 and 2000 Hz centre for 600 baud.

Subject: [BPQ32] UZ7HO Packet Engine on multiple machines?
I notice the BPQ32 config has the IP address, port and path to SoundModem.exe --
> ADDR 127.0.0.18000 PATH C:\Program Files\bpq32\SoundModem.exe
Is that the UZ7HO executable or a separate program that goes between BPQ32 and the Packet Engine?
If it is the UZ7HO executable, wouldn't the eventual scheme be to separate the running of the packet engine from running of BPQ32? Thus it would be possible, thanks to the magic of TCP, to run the Packet Engine on a different computer or even at a different QTH like we can do now with AGWPE.
I realize these are the first steps with the new cool tool so we do what's easy to get it going...
Speaking of HF packet and UZ7HO, I've got it running and am looking for 300 baud packet traffic to monitor? Any suggestions? The APRS/APRS_Messenger channel around 10.149 is very quiet. Anything on 10 meters? I'm currently monitoring psk31 on 28.120 and it's fairly active here in the US Northwest....
