Ah, but that is the BIG problem.  "WHERE?"

Some people think "to an IGate" others
want to their friend 2 or 3 or 4 hops away.
Some do not even want IGates and all their potential
wrong setings adding QRM to their area.

My point is that APRS has as many varried
applications as there are HAMs and *any* attempt
at an intelligent networks ASSUMES that there is
ONE answer as to where everyone's packts should
go.

I disagree completely.  Only the SENDER knows
where he wants his packets to go...
