I've setup PinPoint to transmit and receive APRS beacons as described in this forum topic:
Every time PinPoint transmits an APRS beacon it shows up as an incoming connection request which of course fails:
08:01:02 - <SENDING BEACON> DE PE1PUX 08:15:19 - INCOMING CONNECTION REQUEST.. Hold tight! 08:15:26 - NO LUCK. Maybe next time... 08:16:03 - <SENDING BEACON> DE PE1PUX
It would be nice if the log just just would mention 'Sending APRS beacon' or as the transmission not originates from VarAC just mention the modem is transmitting due to an other application. This way it would be more clear when an actual incoming connection request has failed.
I'm using PinPoint v2 build 201212 and VarAC 3.3.1
Yes - I noticed this myself when I started to play with APRS.
As Gary said - VarAC is not aware of this so it thinks someone it trying to connect :)
I think I have a way to take care of this.
I will address this in the upcoming version (3.5)
Thanks for reporting :)
At this point VarAC is not aware of an APRS program using VARA modem. These are the early days of experimenting and proving a concept (anyone remember the old days of VarAC where we had to use .wav files to call CQ???). So for a while we need to take this hit as experimenters.
