That makes sense. My test from TCPIP to another station was only TO that 
station. My test via RF to another station was via my default path and 
heard and then gated. A reply via RF would have been problematic because 
the callsign-SSID that I sent the test from had never sent a position.

It's nice to get replies like from you & Steve... there's nothing like 
hearing it from the horse's mouth!
