[App_rpt-users] Beagle bone black and timedatectl

For what it's worth (I haven't followed this whole thread) , while not an
app_rpt system, we send out a command at the same time every day (generated
from a node with internet)  to sync the clocks on all the linked
repeaters.  All the other nodes take that command and know it's exactly 3am
(or whatever time) and adjust themselves accordingly.  Not sure if
something like that would work in app_rpt or in your instance... just an
idea.
