Re: ToCall(s) for SCS PTCx, Dragon etc.
Well, from that screen capture, it appears that the ToCall is actually required entry by the user on the PAth command. I'm suspecting that the TARGET is the ToCall and then the actual path is composed of the DIGI0 .. DIGI8, even though that range would imply 9 supported Digis, the actual AX.25 packets only support 8 as the description states.
So, if the user has to specify the TARGET and that is indeed the ToCall, it's highly unlikely that any official ToCall would ever make it into most of the deployed TNCs. If you have a line to the firmware developer, I'd lover to interact directly with him/her rather than relaying through you, who appear to be just an alpha or beta tester?
For an official ToCall to be effective, it should not be
something the user has to specify along with something that would
ordinarily be user configured like the path. If a dedicated,
defaulted, ToCall (destintaion call or TARGET) is a configuration
parameter, then it will be more likely to be kept at the official
value rather than at risk for misspelled entry in a PATH

Hi Lynn, mni tks fer coming bk to me. That's right, I was referring to the PTCs firmware, 4.1r. The soft I am using is Alpha4, but that is just a host/terminal interface, let's say. Great software by the way.
