Sounds like a good idea to me.  But default the IGate->RF path
to WIDE2-1 (instead of W1-1)...  Bob

Xastir allows this sort of operation, but doesn't do it by default.
It starts up the first time with a blank setting for the igate path,
which means it defaults to wide1-1,wide2-1 which is the default
station posit path.

Would be wise to have a default igate path of wide1-1 unless they
fill that box in?
