Mole,
APRS messaging question. Can you pre-type a message and send at a later time?? I'm thinking for spotting for SOTA.
thanks

Yes, you use the "Phrases" menu in the APRS setup. Then when you are composing a message, you hit the [F] button and choose the canned message and send it. It works pretty well. Refer to page 14-10 of the manual on how to send the message because it's not obvious.

    There was an issue early on with the chat where the messages where the color white, so you couldn't see it. I wasn't sure if I fixed it for only myself or everyone. How does it look?
  • 144inBama:
    I can see it....
  • ButtFuzz:
    I can see it. Everything looks like Microsoft Calibri TTF now, which is good.
