that would depend on where the IGates were connected and the difference between
RF and internet propagation times. Most of the time you would be right, but
certainly not all the time. The trouble is once you start producing data, people
forget all the caveats that came with the raw data and start accepting it as
gospel. The only way to tell what is really going on in an RF network is from
the RF side...no matter how tempting it is to say the internet side is almost
good enough.
