Thanks Pete.  Never too much information!  My big beef in learning
APRS is that the info is scattered all over and I haven't found a
coherent and comprehensive reference.  BobAPR's stream of conscience
web pages are informative and entertaining, but it's like putting
together a jigsaw puzzle :)

WHO-15 worked first time!  But the response came from yet another
igate. So I'll try to contact KA0GFC and see what's going on there.

When an igate send a message to RF, I'm sure it must signal other
igates not to send that message anymore.  But I would think that it
would wait for an ack before it did that.  If an IGATE sends a message
to RF,  can I track that event on findu et al?

I used WHO-IS as a simple example, but I also have problems getting
acks from EMAIL and WLNK-1  I'll have to set up some skeds to see if
plain old ham-to-ham messaging works.

In fact, unless we get lightning, I will leave my home APRS setup
running today.  If anyone has the time, please send a message to
N0JUH-1 and a confirming email to jjkunce at gmail.com - I'd like to see
what makes it through.
