I changed my Beacon setting to AUTO and here's what happened:
The D-710 screen showed "my position" twice, after I had the rig
turned on for a little over two minutes.
I went into my home and I brought up "findu". It reported "No
position report for W5LON has been heard in the last 10 days".
This response was puzzeling as I had not seen "my position"
shown on the screen of my D-710 prior to changing changing my
Beacon setting to AUTO.
