RE: [BPQ32] Re: WinFBB beacon control
Ok this setting will send a beacon on BPQ Port 1
First go to Start then click on Run,
Next type regedit click ok
Click on the Plus mark next to my computer, this will expand the registry,
Click on the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Expand the Software Key,
Next expand the GB8BPQ
Right Click on the BPQ32, this will open a drop down window, go to New and Left click on DWORD,
You will now see a new entry in the right window pane, type FBBUIMask, next click on any where in the window to
Add this DWORD.
Next RIGHT Click on the new DWORD icon select Modify, a Small window will open there should be two selections
Hexadecimal and Decimal, select Decimal enter 1 again click on any part of the window.
Close the Registry Editor and restart you’re WinFbb and you will be set.
What I find about writers of program is they assume you know how to reform these tasks and leave out the full instructions.
In the future if you need to change the beacon ports here is the easy way to figure it out,
Open the BPQ Folder run the BPQTerminal.exe click on the Monitor and select the port or ports you want your Beacon to
Go out on, open the registry as before click on but this time the BPQTerminal/sessions look at the Port Mask
Then enter the same in the FBBUIMask.
Feel free to contact me direct by E-Mail for any help.

Subject: [BPQ32] Re: WinFBB beacon control
On my computer, BPQ32 has COM ports 3,4, and 5. These are BPQ Ports
1,2, and 3.
I'm only wanting to beacon on BPQ port 1 ( Com3 )
I thought about BPQ's virtual COM ports etc. but my old 400Mhz
Celeron with Win98se is already close to being maxed out. Besides, it
has five COM ports, so there was no shortage there.
I've never heard of AGWPE being used on HF, or for networking on any
band... It's a partially reverse-engineered FlexNet knockoff, without
the advanced networking features that would be moot for home use
Don't feel bad about the HF thingy... FlexNet is no bueno on HF
either. FlexNet is an expert system that is very VHF/UHF oriented, so
if you put him on HF he acts inappropriately to say the least.
AGWPE inherited this trait from its daddy.
I did finally work out a way to make FlexNet work on HF - by
defeating most of its features. In the end, I concluded that it was
not worth the trouble.
The very best performing setup for HF Packet right now, as far as I
can tell, is BPQ or BPQ32 with MixW.
