[arm-allstar] Problem with ID on simplex link

I am playing with the BBB. I am running a simplex node, the output
transmit on the input of the local repeater and listens on the repeater
output. I dial in using Zoiper on an old smart phone or iaxRpt on my
laptop to access the repeater.
The following condition accrued with all the default settings except
*/nounkeyct/* was changed from zero to one to stop courtesy tones. And
stop the transmitter from keying every time it sees a signal:
When first powered up, or if there is a power hit, or if astres.sh is
executed, the node will key up and send an ID even if no one is
connected to the node.If there is traffic on the frequency and the COR
is operated within the ID period, the node will continue to send an ID
every ten minutes as long as there is activity on the frequency.
If 10 minutes elapses with no receive activity, (no COR activity on the
freq), the node will stop sending the ID even if a signal is received
again after that period.
When someone is connected to the node, the ID works correctly and sends
an ID every 10 minutes. But again, after the user disconnects from the
node, if the BBB node receives an over-the-air signal from the repeater
after the last ID, The BBB node will continue to key up and send an ID
every 10 minutes as long as there is activity on the repeater.
This will continue as long as the repeater is busy. When the repeater
is no longer in use and there is 10 minutes of silence, then the BBB
will stop sending the ID even if the repeater keys up again after the 10
minutes of silence.
If I key the BBB node and give my call, and no one answers in the next
10 minutes, The BBB node will act correctly and not send the ID again.It
is only when it sees incoming traffic within the ID period that it will
keep keying up and sending the ID.
I hope that was clear,
BTW the above scenario also happens if the node is operating on a
simplex frequency instead of a repeater frequency.
