Note that disable never sends a position, so things like near.cgi
have nothing to work with. As has been pointed out, these are often
telpac nodes. The damage here is also quite minimal, a short packet
every 20 minutes.
If you really want to track down the most likely culprit, look for a
telpac node within range of the IGate.
If you make contact, please do so VERY nicely, as they are not
causing any significant damage or breaking any rules. (At least in
the US, they send with their callsign at appropriate intervals, the
callsign is required once every 10 minutes, NOT in every packet).
