I have an OpenSPOT and I saw on that the Brandmeister Network will send APRS-beacons. But, it's with my own callsign and I run here another APRS-program with the same call.

My question is, can I change the callsign (with another SSID) for use with I don't want to change the call in my other APRS-program and if I change the call in my OpenSPOT, it won't be visible on the Brandmeister Dashboard webpage.

I think there must be more amateurs with the same question...

Just add proper SSID to callsign on your OpenSpot

I tried this, but now I don't have sufficient permissions to manage the hotspot via (The sysop callsign was changed to -SSID).
