I guess I was misinformed. I thought the message was optional for "B" -- I certainly read that somewhere but it would have been second hand since I don't have the annexes. In any case, my SR161 will not act on it. So it will certainly be a potential issue for some receive only units.
I didn't know there was an ongoing A vs B debate here. I certainly didn't mean to add fuel to it. Sorry.
PS. As a moderator can you combine the two threads?
