[aprssig] APRS & IRLP

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I was always under the impression
that a call without an SSID was considered a group call (of sorts)..
WinAPRS should be able to send to msg groups... Perhaps it is a separate
feature in WinAPRS like "Send message to group" or something..???  In
Xastir it works very well but it does return as a 'Group Message'.

I use WinAPRS Version 2.8.5 and sending a message to 'APRSDEPOT' will
not work.  It needs to be addressed to a Ham Call type designation like
APRS-1 or APRSDE-1 or like WLNK-1.  Not sure how other APRS platforms
work but this system does not work with WinAPRS.

Might I suggest perhaps using IRLP-1 for the address and have your
APRSDEPOT snag it and then send out the reply.
