As I have no freerunner yet, I could not try your app - but on first sight
your code looks reasonable. I have tried it just now with another phone,
and I get a cellbroadcast message (channel 221) on EVERY mobile phone mast
change. This does not depend on being in homezone or not. Only on
T-Mobile roaming I did not receive any cb messages.

Maybe someone with a freerunner should verify if he could get more then one
message in a row after registering to the network on any cb service.

Is it possible to notice such a phone mast change in any other way? Then
the (bad) way would be pollig. Every time I request a new cb message
(turning cb on/off) I get a new message - even without phone mast change
or reregistering.

Hope that helps.
