sending the Bulletin as a message to BLNn or BLNx as that's how Kenwoods
do bulletins. With APRSISCE/32, you could do it either way. You could
open a chat to BLNn or BLNx and send one shots or you could use Messages
/ Bulletins / Create and APRSISCE/32 will periodically retransmit the
current text(s) if you want it to.
Now that I've said that, I need to go make sure that Chats to BLNn/x
actually DO show up in the local Bulletins display! They won't get
saved across a restart, but since you're using them more as a
notification mechanism and not a persistent bulletin board, that's
probably not an issue.
