The server scans 5 frequencies and modes in 5 minutes.
The config file for that is ~/.pskmail/qrg/freqs.txt (mind the dot before 
On the first line you put the VFO frequencies:
On the second line the modes:

The rest of the config is in ~/.pskmail/pskmailrc.pl, which has 
to be edited.
The scanner uses hamlib. You have to set the parameters for your rig,
i.e. rig type, serial port, baud rate
See http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/hamlib/index.php?title=FAQ
If you want the rig to scan frequencies, put
$scanner = 'F';
for only mode scanning:
$scanner = 'S';

The beaconing is controlled with:
@beacons = qw(1 0 0 0 0);
put a 1 for beaconing, and a 0 for no beaconing for every minute out of the 5 
minute cycle.
So all 1's will beacon 5 times on top of the hour...

The beacon status text is also set in ~/.pskmail/pskmailrc.pl,
as well as the location of the server (see explantion in the file,
the format is specific for APRS...)

Hope this gets you going...
