Do not forget that that those 5 total potential beacons from the KPC3 should
be used for not only the digi's own beacon, but also for local info.  Please
see http://aprs.org/fix14439.html for the digi settings and/or
/localinfo.html for how to set the local frequency objects.  

Typically 2 beacons are for the digi, one direct every 10 minutes and the
other via 2 hops every hour.  That leaves three for LOCALINFO objects via
the DIRECT path every 10 minutes.  And yes, the BTEXT only uses BEACON, but
the LTP's can contain the APN391...  Bob, Wb4APR
