HI guys;
OK I saw a station on psk63 but no call came through..
..............................................................
OK on PSK63  it switches to transmit on the beacon set time all the time BUT on MFSK16 it doesn't I have to do the BEACON by hand, any suggestions to get it to transmit  automatically like PSK63.
THANKS

You must have something screwed up in the configuration.   Normally, Messenger will beacon automatically in whatever mode(s) is(are) selected in the right-column "Transmit" list.    Assuming of course that you have the "Beacon" button on the left side toggled on. I.e. showing green rather than white.  The program will automatically receive any mode, no matter which mode is selected for TX. 

[I normally have the AX.25/MFSK "Transmit" button selected which causes it to beacon alternately on classic AX.25 packet using the external UZ7HO Soundmodem, and on MFSK16 using Messenger's internal modem.]   

By the way, what part of 8-land are you in?   I never hear you.  I suspect you are in my skip zone on 30M; i.e. less than 250-300 miles from my QTH in central Michigan (East Lansing area).
