How did you guys find out about the beacon? My UI-view says sweet nothing 
on these sorts of events and I'm thinking it's time to upgrade to
else. Any suggestions?

Also, my aprsd gateway is really only an incoming gateway since it doesn't

gate posits and messages out on RF unless it has heard that callsign on
So these sorts of messages and Internet-received posits aren't seen by RF 
APRS users...

Is it a good idea for me to change this to provide general posit and 
message data that I'm receiving from the Internet onto RF? (nobody else in

Perth is doing this). Anything better for Linux to use than aprsd?
