       beacon [-c ] [-d ] [-l] [-m] [-s] [-t interval] [-v] port "message"

       Beacon  transmits  the  message  text on an AX.25 port every thirty minutes. The message is addressed to "IDENT" and is sent using the
       AX.25 callsign of the port specified on the command line. Typically the message text will  contain  spaces and/or  other  characters,
       therefore the message text should be enclosed in quotes to ensure they are passed to the beacon program untranslated.

       -c              Configure the source callsign for beacons. The default is to use the interface callsign.

       -d              Configure the destination callsign for beacons. The default is "IDENT".

       -l              Enables the logging of errors to the system log, the default is off.

       -t interval     The time interval between messages, the interval is given in minutes and the default is thirty minutes.
