[aprssig] CQ Server operational question

I was plugging away on my brand-new D7(one of the last HRO had),
playing with messages to my D700 (-9), EMAIL, WHO-IS and CQ. All the
beeps and bleeps are really cool.  I'm actually trying to get a
handle on the fact that my D700 and D7  seem to only sporadically
recognize my own "echo" posit-packets off the local digi.  I don't
see "MY POSITION" when I should (30 min, or with a new location).


You misunderstood my main question.  I was sending CQ FD *before*
field day, I believe, on Thursday.  I received a message to the
effect that I was _too early_ for Field Day.  

This one:

CQSRVR      K9DCI-2      06/27 01:59:41z      Sending too soon to FD

Was *that* an auto reply?

  Late in a long and already complicated day to figure out the zulu time, but I think that's Thurs eve 9pm CDT.  (:-)

What you answered:

Indeed, I also saw the "too many CQ messages" message, but I think I
saw something to that effect in your CQSRVR  tutorial because it
*didn't* puzzle me.

CQSRVR      K9DCI-2      06/27 01:58:54z      3 messages sent to FD


73, Steve, K9DCI

There is time limit (30 minutes) between messages from any one station.  When
you first "join", that message is sent to the rest of the group and
starts the 30 minute timer for your station.  I will look at providing an
"override" command which would allow a net control, for instance, to
send a message to the group more often.  Bob and I thought the 30 minute timer
would keep people from getting inundated if it was a large group.
