Re: [aprsisce] Re: Igating my mobile station only
- The message won't be lost, but the ack might not get back. However,
because each IGate determines -IS to RF on it's own with no "network"
involvement, one receive-only IGate cannot and will not affect the
decisions made by a bi-directional IGate with respect to transmitting
anything from -IS back out to the RF station.
It is exactly that lack of inter-IGate coordination that makes multiple
transmitting IGates a possible problem because they'll both
independently decide to gate the same message simultaneously, possible
resulting in nothing actually copying the transmitted packet from either
of them due to interference. On VHF, the FM "capture effect" helps a
lot with that, unless the receiver happens to be in the
near-same-signal-strength overlap region between the two IGates.
I'll try to remember to add some filter-ability to both directions of
IGating, similar to the existing "Me Not 3rd" support on IStoRF for
