Concerning UI-DIGI settings.
My experience and WEB pages are based on KPC-3+
and so I need to confirm the equivalent settings for
a UI-DIGI with regard to improving the APRS channel:
*** UI FLOOD ALGORITHM should be 0 not 1.
This disables the forced obliteration of prior
path data at each digi... (equivalent to NOID)
*** DIGI beacon rates. Only 3 are available instead
of the four in the KPC-3+. So to get a LOCAL 10
minute rate and a 2 hop 30 minute rate I think it
PATH 1 = (direct)
PATH 2 = (direct)
PATH 3 = WIDE2-2
RATE 1 = 30 min
RATE 2 = 30 min
RATE 3 = 30 min
OFFSET1 = 0
OFFSET2 = 10
OFFSET3 = 20
And all three BEACON TEXTS must be identical.
Otherwise APRS software sees each different one
as a CHANGED position and this fills up peoples
THe above system will generate one packet
locally every 10 minutes and one 3 hop packet
once every 30 minutes. which is about right.
Did I get this right?
