      This is a presumption on my part, but I'm guessing that you're using a D710. The D710 only shows the First, and Last station in the path. The TCPIP indicates the "TCPIP Digipeater" and then the station that gated it to RF. If you're within direct range of the IS-RF gate then that's all you're going to see. If you're running APRSIS32 mobile you can turn on the view paths option and get a look at everywhere it's going (best to do when sitting still) Or, get yourself someplace where you can't hear the gating station, but can hear a digi that can hear the gating station.

      I see this when testing with my KC2ANT-12 station as well, so it's "normal" behavior. Mine is set up with Area filters however so that the TCPIP station only goes out if within a certain area, and the majority of that area can hear the gating station... Now you've got me thinking that maybe I should be testing if it's being digipeated per the Wide2-1 path... Although (can you tell I'm not really awake) IIRC that wouldn't be digi'd anyway, which I actually think was the intention.

      Are you indeed running the D710? you could also check the PMON for the radio and see what paths are in there when the APRSDroid station populates.

      Hi all, Lynn, I have a question about the is - rf gating. I have a filter set to gate everything from KB3KBR. b/KB3KBR* and while it is working ie I can see my Android phone, KB3KBR-10, coming across my radios, it is not being digipeated even though my path is set at wide1-1,wide 2-2. The path that is being shown in my radios is TCPIP,KB3KBR-1*. I'm not sure if I messed something up somewhere or what.

      My igate filter is showing:
      WinMain:2012-11-03T03:22:01.869 Considering:KB3KBR-10(IS) I: 2
      WinMain:2012-11-03T03:22:01.869 IStoRF:IS[APRS-IS](Hit(b/KB3KBR*)) [0]KB3KBR-10>APDR12,TCPIP*,qAC,N5JXS-F1:=4123.64N/07938.51W$ http://aprsdroid.org/ Samsung Droid Charge

      Thanks, Greg KB3KBR
