You can check which nodes are connected in the network, who is logged on locally, who is logged on at all the nodes or even just one node in particular. This is handy if you wish to see whether a friend is connected at the node they use. To see who is connected to the nodes, the SHOW/CONFIGURATION command is used.
show/configuration show/configuration/nodes show/configuration (node_call) show/configuration (prefix)
The first of our three examples would output something like this,
sh/c Node Callsigns EI5TCR (7 users) GB7ADX GB7BAA G4FPV G8TIC GB7BIG (GD0TEP) GD3UMW GB7BPQ (G0INA) G0RCI G3AKU G3OCA (GB7CDX) G3JNB G4ALR GB7DJK G0FYD G0REK G1TLH G4PEL G4SOZ G4TVR G7SQW K8AZ M0CTQ-1 MM1CXE-10 ON7WP GB7DXA G0RDI G8SJP GB7DXC (G0HDB) G0WFK (G1FYC) G3KWK G3LME G3OIL G4BGW G4FUJ (G4PDQ) GW7SMV GB7DXE G1NNB (GB7DXG) GU6EFB GU7DHI GB7DXK G1NTW G3IBI G3NSM G3XAQ G4CUS G4XQY G7GAN GB7DXM G1EUC G3GAF G3LAS G4ZTR G8WXU M0BCT M1EMF
You will notice that EI5TCR is showing only that it has 7 users and not giving the actual callsigns. This means that this node is on a limited protocol of some kind, probably because of a contest situation where slow radio links can block up and fail if too much information is sent between nodes.
The second example would just show the nodes connected in the network, like this,
sh/c/n Node Callsigns GB7BAA GB7BAA GB7BPQ (GB7CDX) GB7DJK GB7DXA GB7DXC GB7DXE (GB7DXG) GB7DXK GB7DXL GB7DXM GB7DXS GB7IPT GB7MRS GB7UJS GB7YDX KL7G N2TLY (ON0DXK) GB7BIG EI5TCR GB7ADX GB7BIG GB7UDX GB7MBC PA4AB-14 PA4AB-14 PI4TUE-8 PI4TUE-8
If we insert the node_call pi4tue-8 into the third example, then this would be the output,
Node Callsigns PI4TUE-8 9A1CMA-6 DF6PW DL4FAY DL4KAK DL4WF-2 F5NOD-2 F5PAC IZ0CSR N6CR OH2BLD ON1LVL-13 ON4CBT ON4CJP ON5DXL-14 ON7NQ PA0RCT PA3DYS PA3FDO PA5KW-4 PI4TUE-9 YT1XX
As you can see, only the users of the requested node are shown.
You can also use a prefix to show only a group of nodes. For example you may only wish to see who is connected to the nodes in the UK. To do this simply use a prefix like this ...
To show the locally connected users, the SHOW/USERS command is used
The output of this command would look like this,
Callsigns connected to GB7MBC G0JHC G0NEI G0VGS G0VGS-2 G0YLM G3JAG G3OWO G3UEU
