[aprssig] Newbie APRS object question

One question that no one has asked yet.  Are you AT the Digi?  Or are 
you trying to put an object onto APRS-IS (the Internet) and expect that, 
with the proper path, some IGate or Digi will pick it up and send it out 
over the "local" RF?  If it's the latter, I'm afraid you're out of luck 
unless you're close friends with an IGate operator where you'd like the 
object to be transmitted.
