Re: [tracker2] Digipeating with the T2-135
- All of the configuration options, including the digi settings, are
non-volatile and will stick across restarts.
I would be careful about digipeating while driving. You wind up with
multiple digis transmitting at once, and in theory (Bob's fratricide
concept) a station will only hear one digi because of the FM capture
effect. Unless you happen to be right on the boundary between two
But with a mobile, you've potentially got several dB of flutter from
multipath and such. If you're the strongest digi for 1/10th of a
second, and then flutter drops your signal and another digi is strongest
for 1/10 of a second, no one's going to be able to copy anything.
If there are no other digis around, then I don't see a problem.
