Re: how to weed out unnecessary iGate's from my decodes?


Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

Not sure what you mean by "weed out" and why you think that is necessary?

The IGate specification at http://www.aprs-is.net/IGateDetails.aspx says:

Gate all packets heard on RF to the Internet EXCEPT if any of the following are true:

  1. 3rd-party packets (data type } ).
    3rd-party packets should have all before and including the data type stripped and then the packet should be processed again starting with step 1 again.
  2. generic queries (data type ? ).
  3. packets with TCPIP, TCPXX, NOGATE, or RFONLY in the header (last 2 are optional).

There's nothing in there about not gating packets of other IGates, or not gating "unnecessary" packets received from RF.  As long as a packet is received from RF and doesn't match any of those conditions, it is gated to the APRS-IS.
