Could it be an advantage, if one could broadcast to a region or a group of call signs?
The CQ goes as far as the radio waves takes it, but for example, I would like to be able to CQ for a specific area, f.eks. The UK.
alternatively, CQ the list of UK stations in my received beacon list.
Also, could we implement a method to signal an interest when calling CQ for a ragchew, rather than the 599/73 QSO types.
Please let me hear your thoughts on this.
Broadcasts are not for CQ. especially not on the CF as it is not connected to the SLOT automatic QSY system. We do not want to enourage QSOs on the CF. So if you call CQ, make sure you tell the audiance where you are standing by. Also note that much less stations will decode your CQ as Broadcasts need -5DB and above to be decoded.
Broadcassts are AX25 packets. they can support single callsign for target. I can of course send multiple packets to multiple people one after the other but it will jam the frequency. So its wither ALL or ONE. at least for now.
Not sure I understand what you mean with "Also, could we implement a method to signal an interest when calling CQ for a ragchew, rather than the 599/73 QSO types."
