PACB-1 is the digipeater callsign and is not used for the BBS.
nor for the PACSAT protocol and the software you are running.

The callsign PACB-1 is for conventional  live digipeater relay 
like normal packet relay.  You can use it to communicate 
live with other stations or to relay your position, status or
mesages into the global APRS internet system.   Bob
