Has anyone ever seen a beacon problem with draw ? running rms gateway


Mike Lussier - AE4ML
 

I left my portable station on over night and when I looked at the screen I saw this and its been going on for a while. 
-10 is the gateway and there are no other radios in the immediate area. 
I have been looking at the configs on the rmsgw and I come up empty handed. 
any thoughts here? 
How do I stop this ? How can I change this to a beacon announcing the rms gateway locally ?

thanks

screen I saw this and its been going on for a while.
What was running on that screen? What was displaying what you saw?

-10 is the gateway and there are no other radios in the immediate area.
I have been looking at the configs on the rmsgw and I come up empty handed.
any thoughts here?
What was the last thing you installed?
Which program created /var/log/beacons.log?

The beacon program can produce this output. If you ran 'beacon' without
the '-s' argument. Run this to see if that's what you did

# As normal user
pidof beacon
history | grep -i beacon

# As root
sudo su
pidof beacon
history | grep -i beacon

The beacon is occurring every 45 minutes so you probably ran: beacon -t 45
run: man beacon
to look at the options

You also might look at your cron tables

# as normal user
crontab -l

# as root
sudo su
crontab -l

# as user rmsgw
sudo -u rmsgw crontab -l

Also use the packet spy, listen, with the following options to get more information:

as root:
listen -ah

How do I stop this ? How can I change this to a beacon announcing the rms gateway locally ?
