      Configure / Genius, sort of... For a fixed station (no GPS), just set the Max time to the desired beacon interval. Since nothing moves, it will time out in

        For a fixed station (no GPS), just set the Max time to the desired
        beacon interval. Since nothing moves, it will time out in that number
        of minutes and beacon. The line below APRS OK should show a count-down
        timer.

        Thanks, Lynn. Not having a GPS on the fixed station, it never occurred to me to click that button. Julian, G4ILO

            Hello group, as a newcomer to APRSISCE and former uiview user  I am struggling to set the beacon interval using my TM D710 and aprsisce I don't seem to be able to find a way of slowing down the beacon rate which is currently every minute! When using uiview I had the rate set at 15 mins, i am using the set up as a home base not mobile at the moment, any help or some means of talking me through the set up procedure would most helpful. I have looked at the wiki and other help files and have not yet been able to set the interval to anything other than 1minute intervals. I must be missing something here! Probably a few brain cells!

            To set a fixed beacon interval, use Configure / GeniusBeaconing. Check Time Only and set the Max Time to the interval you desire in minutes. However, according

              To set a fixed beacon interval, use Configure / GeniusBeaconing.   Check Time Only and set the Max Time to the interval you desire in minutes.

              However, according to http://aprs.fi/?c=raw&call=2E0LIB that's not your issue.  Your raw packets are showing (Connect) as the reason for the beacon (you must have Configure / Beacon / Why checked, which is really good for debugging these sorts of issues) which means that you've got issues holding your connection open to the APRS-IS server.  What do you have in Configure / Ports / APRS-IS as the Quiet Time setting?  For an APRS-IS server, this should not be less than 60 seconds.

              If you open Enables / View Logs / Port(APRS-IS) and enable it, maybe you can tell what's going on with the frequent connection drops.
