That is right... there is no bulletin broadcasting on 10147.0... the 
broadcasts are on 10148.0, and they are specially for sailing hams.
The broadcasts are in mode PSK250.
We separate these functions because the broadcasting and APRS traffic 
is disturbing email traffic, and email and web access traffic disturbs 
So there is a very good reason to separate these functions and put them on
different frequencies...

The server lists are dynamic, and are erased before a restart.
To be in the servers drop down list, a beacon has to be received without error.
You can put a server call into the list manually if you want...
Maybe in future versions of the client we will store the lists.

One function which may be interesting in the future is a scanning function 
for the client, so you can tell it to go to another frequency to pick up a 
and come back...
But we want to release a stable client first :)

We are always interested if you need a function which is not yet there, 
ideas are welcome.
