BBSQUAL should be set to zero – this won’t stop connects, but should prevent you including the call in your NODES bropadcast.
BBS should also be set to 1 if you have any applications defined. The parameter is now a bit misleading, and should really be renamed or removed, but there are quite a few historical anomalies like this. In the next version, I’ll set BBS=1 if there are any applications defined.
If you didn’t have a BBSQUAL defined, then I really don’t understand how you can be sending KF4LLF in your NODES broadcast. Could you send me your bpq32.cfg, and I’ll run it here and see if I can find out what is going on.

Subject: Re: [BPQ32] BPQ32 Quality levels issue with host callsign.
I checked the config file and the BBSQUAL value was not included. I added it, but am not sure what the value should be. According to the help guides, if I set the value to 0, no inbound connections to KF4LLF would be permitted, correct? Does that include direct non-routed connects? (The KF4LLF-7 nodecall is working flawlessly.)
What do you recommend? At the present moment, I've set the value to 1 so that all inbound connects are still allowed. I also set the application quality to 1 as well. Even with that low of a quality, my callsign is being broadcast at least 3 to 4 nodes away. I'm trying to avoid any "hate mail" for having KF4LLF in the node tables if possible.
One more thing, I currently have BBS SUPPORT with a value of 0 and the command "host" is being used in the application section of the config file for winpack. Not sure if this is the correct setting bpq use with winpack.
Thanks for your atte ntion to assist me! This program really is spectacular!
