      Hi Lynn,
      I have set APRSisce and the d710 to the same ssid.
      I will do some more experimenting and see what happens.
      At the moment I have turned off the APRSiSCE beacon.
      Cheers,

      I really haven't figured out which should beacon. I just packed up Steve's
      loaner D710 to return tomorrow, but the whole time it was sitting here, I
      let both of them beacon. Of course, I had APRSIS32 set up as a fixed
      station (see previous e-mail), so it didn't send out very much.

      The issue I still have with running the D710 in APRS mode is that the first
      time APRSISCE/32 sends a beacon, all further beacons from the D710 adopt the
      APRSISCE/32 callsign. When the radio resets or changes mode, it reverts to
      the D710 configured callsign.

      For messaging and visibility purposes, I believe it is important to see both
      stations. But, since APRSISCE/32 adheres to the APRS spec of displaying
      (but not acking) messages for any -SSID, you can still answer D710-directed
      messages directly from APRSISCE/32. However, my client will only announce
      messages directed to it's own SSID.

      I'm still working out what should be done there. As soon as I get back from
      vacation, I'll be finalizing the OT2m installation in my car so that
      APRSISCE on my phone will Bluetooth to the TNC there. So I'll be facing the
      same conundrum with that installation that you're facing with the D710.

      It's two stations, shouldn't it be two beacons? UI-View never had the issue
      because I believe APRSISCE/32 is the first software to actually use the D710
      TNC in APRS mode. The other's put it in PACKET or KISS mode which turned
      off all internal smarts.
