I think, this is only APRS-IS traffic, I-gated by itself, and there is no
any standard Destination Address as AP.... or similar. And of course,
evidence of misunderstanding APRS network rules. In real network, if ECHO is
some Destination Address, GATE is first step to pass from HF to VHF, only
WIDE3-3 is cluttering and probably most stations do not see him on the map,
just on terminal because of Destination Address.
