I thought I'd post the macro I set up for running an NBEMS beacon on my machine:

<INCR><NRSID:1><TX>
Frm: <MYCALL>, <MYNAME>       Bcn Num: <CNTR>
Snt: <LD> @ <LT>     Sftw: <VER>
Loc: <MYLOC> - <MYQTH>   Mode: <MODE>
Rig: Kenwood G-707A         Pwr: 50 watts
Ant: GP-6 clone @ 25 feet  Freq: 145.710 MHz
Web: http://kd7lrj.net    Email: kd7lrj@arrl.net

NBEMS testing Thu 9pm and Sat 9pm on 147.280+ 141.3
<CWID><RX><TIMER:1800>

The output looks like this:

Frm: KD7LRJ, Doug       Bcn Num: 001
Snt: 2013-12-24 @ 2311     Sftw: Fldigi 3.21.77
Loc: DN40DI - Lindon, UT   Mode: MT63-2KL

We are currently using this beacon in Utah County to allow people to adjust their stations and confirm that they can receive and decode the transmissions successfully. It repeats every 30 minutes.
