The goal of APRS was to have a standard for comunications
so that users could have consistent expectations and
consistent operations.  We must get these things fixed!

With the New-N Paradigm we are now making progress 
towards a simple and universal PATH recommendation.
Now maybe it is time to start looking at IGates and start 
nailing down what exactly they are supposed to do and 
how...  and weeding out the ones that are broke...

I'm not sure whether UI-View supports "courtesy positions" either.  I  
remember messaging to a friend of mine in Phoenix a while back, and  
we noticed that my posits were not being sent through the local  
Phoenix IGate. The Phoenix IGate was running UI-View software.  I  
also checked this with another station back east that was using a UI- 
View IGate and had the same results.  It seems that either the  
courtesy positions aren't supported or that feature is configurable  
and wasn't selected.  Given the popularity of UI-View, there would  
seem to be a high probability of this feature not being supported in  
many areas.
