Re: *INT* Packet timing?

Steve- thank you, that was easy. Another somewhat related question about Program features. If I send a chat msg to another APRS station, does APRSIS/32 always send via internet? If I was using the Program and just my raio, no internet, would APRSIS send the chat msg via the radio?

Int is internal, that is they are not leaving the software. If you go to
configure scroller and select No Internals, you won't see them any more.

Subject: [aprsisce] *INT* Packet timing?

Hopefully this is a relatively easy one to answer.
- My base station is an FT-7800 with roof top vertical, T2 and Win 7 64 bit
PC. I use an SSID of KC2NYU-1 for this station. This station is serving as a
Digi Fill and at the moment the only iGate in the Savannah, GA area. Under
Configure - Genius - Beacon Settings, I have min set at 20 and Max at 30.

Here is the question:
- when kc2nyu-1 packets appear on the scroller they sometimes do in pairs of
*Int* and RF and at other times just *Int*. The RF packets appear about
every 30 min but the *Int* packets are more often, sometimes as often as
every 2 minutes but at irregular intervals.
- Do I want kc2nyu-1, the same SSID "going out" in both *Int* and RF??
- How do I does one set or control how often packets are sent via *Int* ??
It seems that are appearing too frequently now.
