Steve, you need to ask your local I-Gate operator to connect
to a filted feed port instead of a full feed port.  Have him
use a filter such as "filter m/120".  That should cover your
county and the 9 surrounding counties (out to the state
line).  This will allow any station within that area to send
and receive msgs through the I-Gate.  Positions will be
gated both ways until one of the stations travels beyond 120
km of the I-Gate.  There should be no need for the I-Gate
operator to enter your callsign into any sort of filter.

Example, if you drive southwest, away from the I-Gate, and
you leave the range of the local RF digipeaters, but you can
get into another digipeater within range of an I-Gate in
another city, then your position will gate back out on RF
from the local I-Gate as long as you are within 120 km of
that I-Gate.  You should be able to send and receive
messages regardless of your position, if you can reach a
similarly configured I-Gate.

With the configuration that I described, the position of the
station you sent a message to will beacon its position
through the local I-Gate on RF until messaging becomes idle.
