Configure Beacon

The beacon is what is transmitted in the background by YAAC to identify, locate, and describe your own station. It supports both fixed and mobile stations using either the regular position format (plain or compressed) or the compact Mic-E format. It also supports multiple beacon definitions to support different beacons through different ports (such as a HF TNC versus a VHF TNC port). This is not used for non-station objects and items; see the object editing functions. The beacon configuration panel looks like this:
