Incorrect power sent

Issue #94 resolved created an issue
  1. Open the prefs to the Station tab, and set Station Power to 49 watts.
  2. Go to the Beacon tab and make sure the power/height/gain information is sent in the beacon.
  3. Manually send a beacon packet.
  4. Go to and check the station information.
  5. Notice that it shows the power as 9W instead of 49W.
  6. Look at the raw packet received by Notice that the PHG is indeed incorrect. For example: 2021-05-11 10:04:28 CDT: KI6HQT-10>APQTH1,TCPIP*,qAC,T2ROMANIA:=3015.37N/ experimental digipeater. It should be PHG7030.

I’m classifying this as major because PHG is used to estimate the range of a digipeater, so it’s pretty important to digipeater functionality.

    I consider any incorrect information in a transmitted packet to be major.

    I appreciate this; you’re testing scenarios that I personally have never had occasion to use before.
