locked Re: [Ham-Apps] Text Messages

Just a few of points on the Text Message feature.
  • This was a "proof of concept" feature that accidentally got released. So I chose to leave it in-place. It is not complete and requires documentation.

  • This is not real-time and if there is a waiting message it is collected around the 30sec mark of the current minute when JTAlert retrieves Band Activity data from HamSpots. If you don't have the Band Activity display enabled, then you will never get a text message.

  • This is not a chat feature as only one message will be received per minute.

  • Messages are sent blind, there is no attempt to confirm a successful delivery.

  • If 2 or more users send a text message to the same Callsign in the current minute, only the newest message will be sent to the target Callsign as the code on HamSpots will only allow a single message. An existing message, waiting to be delivered will be overwritten by the newer message.
