[aprssig] CW stations and ui-view igate

Good grief!  I need caffeine!  

UI-View is seeing the CW stations as "foreign" and not amateur
stations.  There is a way around this, though, that will allow
UI-View to transmit those stations to RF automatically.  BE AWARE!
If you setup your I-Gate to transmit CW*=ALL then you could start
sending virtually thousands of stations to RF!  Make sure of your
settings before doing this.  If you are on a filtered feed, then you
should be okay.  You also have to take into consideration the path
that you are sending these stations out to.  

E-Mail me directly to find out how to make UI-View send these
stations out.  It is a simple switch change in the igate.ini file.  

IMHO, I would just select a few local CW stations to send out to a
very short path instead of CW*=ALL.

73s,

UI-View is seeing as "foreign".  There is a way to gate them out,
though, in the igate.ini file BUT I warn of how you have them setup.
CW*=ALL will put thousands of stations out on RF.  Not a very good
idea.  

Email me directly if you need specifics on the modification to the
igate.ini file (or you can look for yourself).

I do not know specifically about UI-V, but some other IGates will
pass unverified packets when the call is specifically included in the
list. Obviously using CW* in this situation would be a disaster, but
specific local CW stations would not cause excessive QRM. Speaking
only of US rules, this is not illegal. Under the Automatic message
forwarding system rules, unless a verification is made, the first
station to transmit a message on RF assumes responsibility for the
content of the message. If it is a CW station, the risk to an IGate
operators license is small, but still real. This is why the default
behavior of the system is to exclude unverified packets.

So just to fine tune your statement in the previous message, the
verification does not PREVENT those packets from being IGated to RF,
but rather allows the IGate operator to decide for him/herself
whether to assume responsibility for those messages.
