  a.. DON'T set your station up as an IGATE (i.e. DO NOT gate data from the Internet to RF). This will only create traffic loops and problems on the channel.    
  If there is no IGate serving your local area (i.e within 2-3 digipeater hops), or there is no APRS activity at all where you are, please contact your local region co-ordinator so we can integrate your area into the network effectively.

  What you dont want

  01. DIGIS beaconing every 5 minutes
  02. INET to RF traffic swamping the freq
  03. No INET to RF path (messaging)
  04. Mobiles not being able to get through
  05. Mobiles sending at high rates
  06. Unnecessary geograhically non relavant data being sent to RF from INET

  What you do want

  07. Digis beaconing sensibly
  08. INET to RF kept to a minimum or even just messaging
  09. Both ways messaging
  10. Mobiles have a good chance of getting through
  11. Mobiles sending at sensible rates and using smart digi where possible.
  12. Geographically relavent data sent to RF IF you have to.

  At the moment, we have some of 01, 02, some 03, some of 04, some of 06
  At the moment, we have some of 07, none of 08, some of 09, some of 10, some of 11, some of 12

  Remember, not everyone has rx capable mobiles

  And if the packets are to help people at home, they should really be using the internet to help with bandwidth.

  Conserve the RF spectrum

    I recently fitted the car with APRS.

    I am hearing some INET to RF traffic on 145.175 MHz

    I am hearing almost constant INET to RF traffic on 439.100 MHz

    What I find weird is, most people seem to be running dumb trackers, ie they can't even RX the packets.

    My question is, who or what is the INET to RF supposed to support then ?

    I am not sure everyone is doing both way gating as well, I tried a few INET to RF messages.

    Surely you would favour the mobiles.

    It makes it really hard to impossible for mobiles to get out.

    Can you please look at this situation.
