Re: How do I verify if iGate is setting up correctly?

Glenn O'Connor

If, for example, a station(XYZ) is Igated by your station(ABC), that same station may also be Igated by another one(DEF).


On the IS system, it’s a matter of who gates first, ABC vs DEF.. Any additional reports of a station(XYZ), is considered a duplicate

and is dismissed. So it’s all a matter of timing.

Thank you Glenn,  understood about RFtoIS. 

Okay, I am "sending" info to IS from RF.  At least the local log is telling me.  I got that.

How do I know what I am sending is actually get there?  Is there a place I can go see what got posted my W3KIT-10?

At least please explain what the meaning of this line.

"The key is in each line “RFtoIS”."  Does not making sense to a retarded like myself.

Well hello there.  Thank you for you info.  Yes, I can see my station showing on after I sent out my position.  What I do not understand for sure if what I am seeing in the iGate log within APRSIS32 program.  

Looking at the log my bald head is spinning :)  What does that even mean? I see a lot of packets scrolling by does that mean I sent what I heard to the APRS IS?
Example below, I just do not know how to translate to the language that I could understand.

Like that first line.   Is W5ODJ-5 sending out a position report and KV3B-1 digipeating to W3KIT-10 and then W3KIT-10 place W5ODJ-5 on the map (APRS IS)?
