Thanks very much for the reply (and the clarification).
Sorry, but a few more questions.

Hmm...I can understand the logic of it, but it seems slightly strange.
To give an example I can understand (I need things broken down for
If I have 2 computers with IP address 192.168.1.2, and 192.168.1.3
that I "operate", and I send a ping ICMP message ("a hello are you
there, if so please respond" message) from 192.168.1.2 to another
computer say 192.168.100.33, I would expect .33 to respond to 1.2
Or, at least if the 100.33 machine *knows* (through some magic
service) that I own 1.2 and 1.3, I would expect it to reply to both.
Maybe I am being extra stupid here...I should of course read the
spec. I will do that now.

So, I should still receive the response to the originating radio (in
this case EI8FDB-10)?
If so, this is my problem: I don't.

APRS sees every station with "-XX" as a sub-station, even if the
message originated from a sub-station?
Apologies if I am not getting the message (hi hi) here!
thanks in advance,
