To be clear, are you asking whether your home station should beacon via RF in coordination with the Open APRS app in your phone?
My home station is KB7FSC-1 and is interfaced to my Kenwood via APRSIS32. All functions work fine, and I'm able to IGATE received packets and broadcast KB7FSC-1 beacon information via RF.
I recently installed OpenAPRS on my IPhone and labeled it KB7FSC-10. I was thinking that when my IPhone beaconed, that my home station would receive the APRS packet (which it does via IS) and rebroadcast KB7FSC-10 information via RF (which it doesn't). I'm wondering if this is just normal or if I can change something to make my home station rebroadcast KB7FSC-10 information via RF?
