[aprssig] Abusive path lists

As a "one shot" way to identify all of the IGATEs, is there an easy way on
the admin side to see all of the stations connected to the Tier 2 servers
right now?  Assuming most of them are able to gate traffic from RF, then
that should identify most of IGATEs currently in operation.  It doesn't have
to be an automated process, just a quick snapshot right now.  Just an idea.

that would depend on where the IGates were connected and the difference
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,
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
the RF side...no matter how tempting it is to say the internet side is
good enough.
