I thought I had seen this discussed before but for the life of me I can't find it.

This weekend in Michigan we are holding a SET, and I an the control operator for the county EOC and so will be using the county EOC call sign.

Besides editing my config.json and copying back and forth my config.json with my call and the county call, is there a better way to handle multiple accounts and or call signs?

Thanks

You can use the --config option to pat to have multiple config files.  That's probably the easiest way.

Hi Tad,

You can use auxiliary addresses for this :)

Read about them in the config docs: https://pkg.go.dev/github.com/la5nta/pat/cfg

I realize this response is a bit late, but hopefully you can use it next time you are net control.

So just getting back around to this.  This is what I have config.json:
"auxiliary_adresses": [
   "SOMECALL:SOMEPASSWORD"
]'
 
And yes in the file I use an actual call and password.

This doesn't seem to work, or at least it is not retrieving messages.  My guess is my syntax is incorrect, but any help would be appreciated,

Thanks

You're missing the second 'd' in addresses :-)
