BSBI MapMate at Center apj

by AndyAmphlett » Tue Aug 15, 2017 10:23 am


I noticed that when I send a sync to the BSBI Hub - CUK 2qg, I now get an automated reply from BSBI MapMate at Center apj. I take it that I don't need to create a new sync partner (with apj) and that my (and other's) syncs to 2qg will be picked up automatically by the DDb?

Hi Andy,

It's just a cosmetic change, there's no need to update your sync target.

I was mainly aiming to avoid sending acknowledgements that appeared to come from Bob Ellis (who has now retired). If someone was setting up from scratch then I'd suggest using apj rather one of the four old hub cuks, but for practical purposes it makes no difference.

If this causes too much confusion then I'll switch back to the previous 2qg-linked reply.

Out of interest, please could you forward a copy of the new-style acknowledgement email to me - I'm hoping that the response appears to be from a generic BSBI user, rather than personally from me.
