Are you sure?
This is good news.  I thought that UIview treated a bulletin
like any other message and transmitted it at a fixed rate 
only and then timed out...  If UIview has the decay
algorithm on bulletins this is good news..  Bob

Sure, just send a message to BLNB

It will repeat on a decaying schedule until you delete it. 

73!

Does anybody know if UI-View has a mechanism to send out bulletins on
some
timed basis?

BTW, the URL in BLNB below should be:
http://www.ew.usna.edu/~bruninga/aprs/fix14439.html  :-)

The simplest and most effective thing we can do for our APRS channel is
post
these bulletins.  It doesnt even require a trip to the digis:

BLNA: Pse see the New APRS Paradigm for better network efficiency
BLNB: See http://www/ew.usna.edu/~bruninga/aprs/fix14439.html
BLNB: Pse use WIDE2-2 instead of WIDE,WIDE. It's much more efficient
BLNC: Pse try WIDE2-2 instead of RELAY,WIDE too.  Much fewer dupes.

If your area is a WIDE3-3 area then:

BLNB: Pse use WIDE3-3 instead of W,W,W. It's much more efficient
BLNC: Pse try WIDE3-3 instead of R,W,W too.  Much fewer dupes.

If your area has made a big push for SSn-N then maybe:

BLNB: Pse try SSn-N for in-state comms.  It's much more efficient
BLNC: WIDEn-N will be back on after everyone learns new paradigm.

or something like that...

That is what I am putting out in my WIDE2-2 area.  ANd the difference
is
amazing!  In a week we are now down to only 30% still using the W,W
type
paths.  And you can hear the difference..  Now there are even some
silent
gaps up to a few seconds long between packets...

And be careful to not alienate anyone.  Most users are not on this SIG
and
have no clue what this is all about.  
Dont blind side them, give them a chance to catch up with the
Bulletins
above...

Bob
