packets. The RFtoIS and IStoRF checkboxes control gating activity
regardless of packet type.

> Would a better solution for ensuring that anything originated by me goes out over RF but anything received by me is gated be to tick the box but specify in my Beacon Path RFONLY?If your RF port is transmit enabled and has the appropriate packet type
checked, your packets will go out over RF. The same is true for the
Configure / Ports / APRS-IS as it affects delivering locally generated
packets directly to the APRS-IS. They are not mutually exclusive.
Putting RFONLY in your path is asking other IGates not to gate your RF
packet(s) to the APRS-IS and does not affect where APRSISCE/32 will
deliver those packets. Only the port-level checkboxes control over
which ports locally generated packets will be transmitted.
