Re: How often does an APRS DIGI need to I'd?

David Andrzejewski

This is what I do. My digis use meaningful callsigns with their location, and I just have it set to send an ax.25 packet with my callsign every 10 minutes. That way there’s no gray area and it follows US regs.

If your Digi is using a callsign, then it id's every packet that is send, whether originated by APRISCE, or digipeated.

If your digi is using a tactical call, say for example BIGMTN, just have a status message or beacon text sent every 10 mins with you callsign in it.
US regulations, of course.

Hi K7OI (Mark)
I remember when aprs first started there was chatter about how often to id.
Is there a rule about beaconing or digipeater.

Currently my beacon is set to 60m.
