[App_rpt-users] Bug or wrong implementation?

For a simplex node you must tell the usb fob or URI that you are 
connected to a simplex radio (not a full duplex radio like a repeater).
Otherwise the moment it receives a signal it will attempt to key the 
same radio because it thinks it full duplex.

So in usbradio.conf set duplex=0 for simplex radios.

Also in rpt.conf you must tell App-rpt that you are running in half 
duplex node so you must state in the node stanza duplex=0.

If you dont it will assume you are connected to a repeater.

So I dont think its a bug it just needs to be configured correctly.

Hope this helps.
