    Hello, I am no programmer but I would think this shouldn’t be too difficult.

    Most repeaters do NOT ID at every X minutes but rather ID 10 minutes after the start of a conversation and every 10 Minutes during until the last transmission ends.
    This is per FCC Part 97 rules.

    I find that having the repeater ID every 10 minutes regardless of activity is a waste of electricity and needlessly transmitting.

    Just my 2 cents worth I do like the fact of the short and long ID, it would just be nice and legal to have it ID during activity every 10 minutes. (User selectable of course)

    Thanks in advance if this can happen in a newer release version.

    It is achievable in the current development build (2.2.0) but that is not available publicly as a downloadable image. You’d have to do a custom build from script to get it up and running. This code will likely not be publicly released, but rather absorbed into version 3.0 when the new UI design is completed. If you are adventurous and good with linux then you can use the script to do a 2.2.0 build.
