- Dec 11, 2006I'm thinking of adding a new digipeater feature - this is something I think
I mentioned before, but I've got a better idea now of how I want to do it.
The ASSIST command would specify callsigns that'd be digipeated based on
source call. The primary purpose for this is to use your mobile as a
gateway for a handheld - every packet you transmit, regardless of path,
would be digipeated. Also, every incoming APRS message directed to a
callsign on the list would be digipeated, to allow two-way communication
when your only contact is through the mobile.
It'd use the standard dupe checking algorithm, so I don't think it'd have a
problem with routing loops. I think it'd have to only take effect if the
packet hasn't been digipeated by a regular digipeater, though.
Comments? The main obstacle to implementing this right now is the amount of
config space needed for the list.
