Multiple callsigns for aprs.fi [closed]

Hi,

The DMR-MARC database maintainers are not so keen on multiple DMR ID's for one user. DMR+ allows to use separate callsigns to aprs.fi (callsign-1 to callsign-9) to influence the icon on aprs.fi, by using different RRS & GPS Radio ID's (5001 to 5009 if I remember correctly).

Are there any plans to introduce this functionality in BM?

Maybe the Talker Alias can be used instead to difference the multiple devices?

Isn't it possible to use the new talker alias, as DO3BOX mentioned? If Talker Alias is "CALL-X" take -X as SSID and pass it to APRS, if no -X is provided, the dashboard settings will be used. RRS & GPS IDs will be kept on current vaule.

I have multiple DMR stations in multiple vehicles (portable, motorcycle, car, base station) and on aprs.fi I can only assign one icon to my ID, meaning i'm "walking" at highway speeds :). Can be solved with multiple DMR ID's but the admins of that list don't like more than 2 per user.

Still its possible to switch the icon on the fly the dashboard works find from a mobile device and changing the icon i active within minutes. And its impossible to recreate the DMR+ system without rewriting whole BandMeister. It could be possible via a external service but not directly from BM.

I'm obviously not going to log in to self care every time I switch from a mobile transceiver to a portable transceiver and vice versa :). I know I'm special with a portable device, a mobile device in my car and a mobile device on my motorcycle, but that are three different icons...

I'm not sure what might be possible, but my GPS data goes now to ID 206999. Maybe a way to specify the -x suffix by using 20699x?
