> I would go with 10 minutes for a fixed station of any type.
I think this thread was for DIRECT (no hop) packets. We kinda establishd
the 30 and 10 minute rates in the spec. But here is what we intended:
30 minutes basic refresh for fixed stations doing nothing and using a
regional path of 2 hops.
10 minutes update during nets or events or when station is manned and is
showing the manned indicator
10 minutes for FREQ OBJects sent DIRECT from the digi.
3 or 5 minute rate while mobile commuting and doing nothing special
2 minute mobile rate with lots of stations during a long event
1 minute rate while moving in an event and doing something SPECIAL
1 minute mobile if using Proportional-Pathing. This gives an effective 4
minute mobile regional rate, 2 minute local rate and 1 minute direct rate
for rendezvous with other passing mobiles.
I wonder where we should post this. Is there anything out there that
contradicts these recommendations?
