So the path wouldn't look like PCSAT-1*,SGATE*,WIDE?

Because the PCSAT WEB page is driven only by
packets seen as PCSAT-1*.    After going thought
the satgate, then they show as SATGATE*.

Why would the fact it went via PCSAT-1 be lost?  If he is running his digipeater with the alias of SGATE, then the only packets that would be digipeated by him are the ones that have a path similar to: "PCSAT-1,SGATE,WIDE".  The path would stay intact.

This is not a good idea, since once it gets digipeated to
the terrestrial channel the fact that it went via PCSAT-1
is lost.  It wont show up on FINDU...    Bob

Howdy,

I was thinking of placing a radio on 145.825 with an alias of satgate. It would then have an offset to the normal APRS freq here of 145.175. The idea being that when PCSAT or ISS turn up, the TNC will try and 
digi them, flick up to the normal APRS channel.

I am just wondering would I need to set the UI path to relay to go via

the local digi ?

Ideas ?
