- Nov 3, 2012FWIW the smart beaconing for Aprsdroid needs some work. I normally run mine for a 2 mile distance beacon.

using a path of WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2? Only you know if you really
need a three hop path, and if it's too long for your location, but
fixed stations (and anything that flies high) should not use a path
Another path I would question would be KB3KBR-7 (VX-8)
asking for a six-hop path of WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2,PA3-3.
KB3KBR-9 is also using a six hop path of WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2,PA3-3.
Note... if you are going to have your IGate gate everything from
KB3KBR-10 to RF, you could lessen the load on the RF network
by not having it include "http://aprsdroid.org/ Samsung Droid Charge"
in every single beacon. That's 45 bytes that you could save on every
single beacon. You could also lessen the load by not having it
beacon every 10-20 seconds. Beaconed via TCPIP to the APRS-IS,
the load is just on the APRS-IS. With it being gated out to RF,
it affects everyone around your IGate.
