The client IGate doesn't report qAO or qAo.  The client IGate only
reports qAR,call or call,I which is converted to qAR,call by the server.
If the IGate is connected to a limited feed port (filter port), the
_server_ will change the qAR to qAo.  This was originally done to
identify any potential filter port issues.  As noted earlier, you can
see that explained at http://www.aprs-is.net/q.htm
