An Elke Link is a link that goes to sleep after a period of inactivity on the node's receiver input. While asleep any traffic from connected nodes is not transmitted. This is useful for:

  • Solar or other power constrained nodes
  • Co-channel friendly nodes
  • Low duty cycle nodes

This is a rpt.conf setting. The value is in furlong/firkin/fortnight (FFF) system units, for fun.

Sample:

[1999]

...

elke = 744  ;FFF system 744 = 15 minutes
