[aprssig] Gating Objects from Internet to RF

Hi Mark,

Some IGate software allows gating based on object prefix, just like from-call prefix.  If you use a filtered server feed for only your area with your IGate, then you can use capable software to gate based on the EL- object prefix.  If your software is not capable of gating based on object prefix, you might go to the Echolink site and determine what links/repeaters you want to specifically gate to RF.  I basically do this with my IGate using an area filter matching the county I live in.

1. If the intent is to "reverse gate" these, who will decide or how 
can we limit the amount of traffic in a given area?
	Example: I reverse gate weather warnings from different weather 
offices. It is a simple one line addition to my I-NET>RF reverse gate file.
	I would NEVER want to reverse gate ALL of the Echolink nodes! 
Especially every 10 minutes!
