If the Opentracker had three configs I'd have set up three different
speed ranges and changed the beacon rate as it sequences through
them to alleviate this problem.

Currently I switch from SmartBeaconing(tm) to fixed beaconing @ 7
minute intervals at a low mph (7?).  The APO2 then shuts off power
to the whole shebang after 2 or 3 transmissions.

There may be 7 minutes where people see me moving due to
dead-reckoning, 14 mins if they miss the first one.
