Thanks for the confirmation.
I believe I am not reading the proper portion of the manual that
describes the messaging features.
I am new to the APRS world and cannot find any documentation other
than the stuff about --send. Is there something I am missing.
I have had another person read over the documentation and they asking

Thanks everyone for their help and ecouragment.
