      Here is everything you need for APRS and JOTA:

      IGATES: Please set "SCOUTS" to pass through to RF

      JOTA STATIONS: Please add "SCOUTS" to your MESSAGE GROUPS so you can
      receive generic messages to SCOUTS. Once every hour or so send a ONE LINE
      message to SCOUTS so that people will see your callsign. Please set your
      ICON to the SCOUT Icon (for D7 and D700's, the code is /,)

      To WORK stations, do NOT send traffic to SCOUTS. Look at their
      FROM-CALL and send them a message DIRECT to their call. The IGates will
      automatically forward your packets back to RF. The result is worldwide
      JOTA communications from your HT, Mobile or JOTA station display.

      Once the IGates see traffic between stations A and B, then they will send
      a PSOSIT so you can see each other on the map. Thats how APRServe works.

      If your APRS program does not have MESSAGE GROUPS, then set them in your
      D700 or D7(g). And all you need is to see the sending callsign to give
      you a target.

      See you on the air on JOTA!
