Hi Per,

I have installed 0.2.9-3 server and have @Beaconarray = qw (1 1 1 1 1); but still no rf beacon. I have restarted rflinkserver.pl since it only reads pskmailrc.pl upon startup.

I did just install just the latest rflinkserver.pl since that was the only file with a newer datestamp than the 0.2.9 release. Perhaps I need to update another file? Perhaps I need to change another variable in pskmailrc.pl? I haven't had time to dig deeper into the mystery.

Hi Fred,

There was a slight problem with the first release, try getting the
latest which is called PSKmail_server-0.2.9-3.tar.gz.
Also, I changed the beacon quite a lot and you can now control the
beacon behaviour during minutes 0-4. You set this in pskmailrc.pl as:
@Beaconarray = qw (1 1 1 1 1);
That example means that there should be a beacon on every minute 0-4.
Set it to "@Beaconarray = qw (1 0 0 0 0);" if you want the beacon on
minute 0 only.

In the latest 0.2.9 server release, the rf beacon has quit transmitting. I have played around with pskmailrc.pl but have not gotten it working again.

Is there a change in the configuration that I should make for the hourly beacon?

As always, thanks!


PS - I have the latest client installed on my laptop but haven't had a chance to test it yet. Wife says I must finish painting the kitchen cabinets before playing radio. I do as I'm told to keep the boss happy :>)
