And I forgot, did you see the bulletins I transmit of upcoming ham club
meetings and swap meets?
These are being sent by the M0CYP-developed UI-View plugin "APRS
Events". I have the announcements for a given meeting set to start at
15:00 hours the day before the meeting (to pick up the afternoon
drive-time "audience" the day before), and expire about an hour before
the end of the event.
APRS Events operates from an easily-edited text file list. I have the
meetings and swapmeets queued up for the next six months. In turn, I
have APRS Events transmit on a path via an explicit digipeater callsign
(N6EX-1) rather than WIDE2-2 so the bulletins tend to blanket only the
San Gabriel Valley area (where the clubs in question are) rather than
all of the greater L.A. basin via multiple WIDE2-2s simultaneously.
