[arm-allstar] Problem with ID on simplex link

I've set my node up like this (11111 is your node number) so every 20
minutes it sends out an ID and the time if there's no usage, but the normal
10 minute CW ID is sent out as well:
;dtmf_function =  m h dom mon dow  ; ala cron, star is implied

1=00 * * * *   ;run macro 1 on the hour
1=20 * * * *   ;run macro x:20 on the hour
1=40 * * * *   ;run macro x:40 on the hour

;Macro number = command string (ea command separated by space) -end with
1=*81 *80#    ; play time and voice ID
