Having tried to add PHG to my beacon text, both Findu and APRS.fi are not showing any range circles. (Digi Call = G8KBV)
What I have as the Beacon Comment text in UiView is "PHG2134/ 5W WIDE1-1 Digi." no quotes. On both Findu and ARPS.fi, the / is showing as part of the comment.
What I fed the calculator(s) was:- 5 Watts RF, 3dBd, 20' HAAT, South. I have not implemented the beacon rate figure (would be 4 if used)
What they are showing is:-
aprs.fi when you click on the icon.

/ 5W WIDE1-1 Digi.
power 4W, antenna HAAT 20 ft, gain 3 dBi 180°,
range 5.0 miles
[APU25N via WIDE3-3,qAR,G3YQO-1]
Err.. 4W? Feeder loss?
And the actual range is a darn site more than 5 miles, that I know for sure.
And on Findu...
G8KBV>APU25N,WIDE3-3,qAR,G3YQO-1:=/43BiN7]A# BPHG2134/ 5W WIDE1-1 Digi.
No circles or other indicators on either maps.
Is the space after the / a problem, I wanted it to be easier for humans to read?
Cheers. Dave G0WBX (G8KBV digi owner)
