      A single instance of APRSISCE/32 is a single station and has a single callsign-SSID.  The "Inherit" stuff is really obsolete and I need to get it removed.

      While it is possible to run multiple ports on a single instance, there's really good reasons for running a single port per instance and running two instances.  These include:

      a) You get distinct callsign-SSID per instance and therefore per port

      b) APRSISCE/32 doesn't keep track of WHICH port heard a station on RF, so messages are gated from -IS to ALL RF ports.

      c) There is no cross-port capability in APRSISCE/32, so there's no real benefit to putting both ports in a single instance.

      d) If an instance fails, at least the other instance is still running and providing IGate services.

      e) There's probably more, but they're buried in the archives of this Yahoo group from the last time this was brought up.

      I have the port added KPC3-U/com6 & KPC3-V/com3 both running KISS.
      My question is:
      I was hoping to have UHF on N7QVU-12, but the 'inherit' callsign is on, and don't see how to turn it off to add a different callsign to UHF.
      Thanks for your repies ... unless you say I cannot do this. Hi Hi
