Bulletins from the Pacific Packet Radio Society - page 096

(TER)minate TIME (PHO)ne #'s

To select a system, type it's name. You may abbreviate commands to the letters shown in parenthesis. (It is no longer necessary to place the system name along with the command, although that mode is still supported.

The system has a new and more concise COMMAND prompt.
It is a '-|' and will replace 'COMMAND ---|'

Thanks, Gordon WB2CAM

Type a '?' for a menu of commands.

The rest is fairly simple; for example, to read the bulletins, when you see the prompt type:

- | BULL [ -
SYSTEM = BULL (will appear)

-| RE [ - (to read the bulletins /also/ the '[-' is a system prompt, and not to be typed)

Press P to pause, press A to abort. (will appear)

(M)ultiple (N)umeric (T)o (F)rom (S)ubject - (will appear; I entered 'M')

Starting number? (will appear; I entered '1') and the system will begin to dump the bulletins.

I hope the above information will be useful and save you some time.

I am about 95% through testing new versions of the LIP/TIP and KA6M/R software which does away with hardwired ID codes. The strategy is an expansion of the AMRAD suggestion to put the callsign at the front of each packet. Each packet will have a header of the following form:



ADDR Assigned always to some fixed value. I'm using FE.
CTL All current values unchanged plus the addition of

Repeater connection reject packet
Station connection reject packet
Broadcast packet

FMCALL 7 bytes of callsign of the originator
TOCALL 7 bytes of callsign of the destination
