At only 1200 baud, 2m packet radio is slow. Try to keep messages to a reasonable length and quantity to avoid overcrowding the network and slowing it down for everyone. * To save bandwidth, please disconnect if you are not actually using ARCS. Try not to stay connected if you are going to be AFK for an extended period of time. * Avoid needlessly running your own ARCS server. I think it would be a good idea to have regional servers for different areas of the country/world, but the network would get overwhelmed quickly if everyone tries to run their own server. -* Please stick to normal text messaging if you are connecting to ARCS with anything other than the normal browser interface.

You can just send APRS messages directly to the callsign of the server (i.e. KD2SIX-1), and you will be connected just like through the GUI program. You will need to continue to send messages or manually send `/ping` commands periodically in order to keep your connection alive. diff --git a/arcs.py b/arcs.py @@ -27,7 +27,7 @@ SERV_LAT = '4306.50N' SERV_LONG = '07608.61W' # message for position beacon -BEACON_MSG = 'Amateur Radio Chat Server - WIP' +BEACON_MSG = 'github.com/joshiemoore/arcs' # how long to delay between beacon transmissions (in seconds) BEACON_DELAY = 1800
