APRS Beacon Text Customization

Post by W9DJE » Wed Feb 13, 2019 1:19 am

My MMDVM_HS Hat is sending beacon packets perfectly and I'm gating them out on my fill-in digi to RF, which is cool.

My question is if it's possible to not just have it send the frequency my node is set to but also the reflector it's connected to?

For instance, right now my beacon says:
"MMDVM Voice 446.25000MHz +0.0000MHz, W9DJE_Pi-Star"

I'd love it if I could get it to say:
"MMDVM Voice 446.25000MHz, FCS00249, W9DJE_Pi-Star"

Is there any way to change what the default text is?

I agree that would be a nice addition! So a big plus 1 from me!
