Well, beaconing a distant station from APRS-IS to WIDE3-3 seems unnecessary
given how crowded central NM is. AFAICT from Findu, K5HAB is just tooling
along on vacation in NC using a WIDE,WIDE3-3 path, and somehow K5MJE is gating
it back here. I suspect a configuration issue at the K5MJE-2 igate rather than
something that K5HAB is doing.
