    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.

    This is a known issue that will be addressed in an upcoming 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.

    Hello Hayden,
    As mentioned it is implement in the development branch of 2.2.x. That code base is currently being absorbed into the 3.0 redesign. So it will definitely be within 3.0 release when that is ready. It’s just slow going. If you want to help on the development side, you should join our slack group. Let me know if you need an invitation.

    I am not a programmer unless you count CPM, appleIIc and Commodore 64 basic. I would be willing to take a look at the code and try and learn so Aaron if you are reading this, sign me up for the slack group.

    Always willing to learn.

    /knowledgebase/topic/custom-svxlink-configuration @David if you look there, near the end there is provision for adding custom svxlink config settings and not having them overwritten by openrepeater.
