      I'd have a hard time writing something like that up... perhaps you can
      help with the explanation.

      Here's where I am coming from:

      If someone wants to set up an i-gate, I automatically assume that the
      person making the request knows what an i-gate is. That would be a
      fair assumption, would it not?

      Just to make sure we're on the same page, an i-gate is an APRS
      application configured such that specific packets heard on one
      interface will be gated to the other interface and vice-versa, one of
      those interfaces being RF and the other being the internet.

      Hmm, just defining what an i-gate is above has already helped me out.

      Since APRSISCE/32 is designed to by default have internet access,
      configuring an i-gate has already been described in detail.

      http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/port-configuration

      There's even a video!

      In all the other APRS programs, setting up an i-gate instructions show
      you how to configure an internet port, and any specific check boxes to
      set properly. For APRSISCE/32, the equivalent would be setting up the
      RF-Port and the specific check boxes. So Julian's video should be what
      you are looking for.

      Again, this all assumes that the person setting up an i-gate knows
      what an i-gate really is. There's no i-gate wizard in the program that
      will drag you through setting things up. The internet side is pretty
      much standard, and automatically assumed as operational. The RF side
      however has many variations depending upon the hardware/software you
      are using to connect to RF via.

      So how do we go about explaining it clearly enough to make sense?

        Will do NWS but as we don’t have it in the UK I will rely on someone correcting any errors and omissions

          What radio is showing your path? I suspect it is showing the unwrapped
          third-party packet.
          I am using the vx8g and  ftm 350, they both say digi(F) TCPIP digi(L) KB3KBR-1*.
          If you check your RF logs in the IGate, do you hear digipeats coming
          back of the 3rd party packet?


          I dont see any digipeats back in either the scroller or both radios. The whole reason i found out about this was that I had both the ftm 350 and the phone tracking me out of rf range of the gate but not my digi. I was getting my objects and beacons from -1 thru the digi -2, and my -9  beacons  as well but no phone beacons until I got into range of the Igate.

          If not, do you even hear digipeats back of your own beacon?
          Yes. I hear the digis of my beacons and objects just not my gated to rf stations.
          What do your radios show of the IGate's beacon as compared to the -IS
          to RF gated 3rd party packet?

            I've added b/KC2ANT-2 to my IGate filter. I force a beacon from -2 (on a different PC) it as best I can tell it's being spit back at my by W2ZJ-1, N2PYI-1, KC2ANT-1, and KB2FAF-1.

            So it appears that the WIDE2-2 path on my home station is holding true for TCPIP stations.

            I can't remember who, but someone mentioned about stopping the APRS droid and phone commercial. I personally use my e-mail (that hits the phone) on my APRSdroid so that someone watching me has a way to get a hold of me if they see a problem with my beacons, like the every 5 second smart beacon burst.... (which is why I run a 2 mile distance setting)

              This is from my Filter Test Log (Ctrl+G)

              I've added b/KC2ANT-2 to my IGate filter. I force a beacon from -2 (on a different PC) it as best I can tell it's being spit back at my by W2ZJ-1, N2PYI-1, KC2ANT-1, and KB2FAF-1.

              So it appears that the WIDE2-2 path on my home station is holding true for TCPIP stations.

              I can't remember who, but someone mentioned about stopping the APRS droid and phone commercial. I personally use my e-mail (that hits the phone) on my APRSdroid so that someone watching me has a way to get a hold of me if they see a problem with my beacons, like the every 5 second smart beacon burst.... (which is why I run a 2 mile distance setting)

              What radio is showing your path? I suspect it is showing the unwrapped
              third-party packet.
              I am using the vx8g and  ftm 350, they both say digi(F) TCPIP digi(L) KB3KBR-1*.
              If you check your RF logs in the IGate, do you hear digipeats coming
              back of the 3rd party packet?


              I dont see any digipeats back in either the scroller or both radios. The whole reason i found out about this was that I had both the ftm 350 and the phone tracking me out of rf range of the gate but not my digi. I was getting my objects and beacons from -1 thru the digi -2, and my -9  beacons  as well but no phone beacons until I got into range of the Igate.

              If not, do you even hear digipeats back of your own beacon?
              Yes. I hear the digis of my beacons and objects just not my gated to rf stations.
              What do your radios show of the IGate's beacon as compared to the -IS
              to RF gated 3rd party packet?

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.
