OOPS, didn't post correctly to sig.  reposting to sig...

I played with it to familiarize myself (a few responded), but wasn't around to actually make FD contacts.

Q: on the CQSRVR

When you send a CQ with a "Group", this "sets up" the group, right?  The first use of the group makes that group exist (for the 12 hours)?
The group does not have to be set up by some prior system command by Pete, right?

If so...  When/if the initial user (who set up the group) Does a U(nconnect) command, does that terminate the group, or does is still exist for the remainder of the 12 hours?

73, Steve, K9DCI
