If I recall correctly, Xastir has a small subset of queries it answers.  It only answers if the query was received on RF and sends the responses to RF.

If everything on the 'net responded to a query we'd have a bit of a bottleneck.

If you'd like the exact list we respond to, I can look that up later for you.  Let me know.  we7u-3 is my Xastir igate station.  -15 and -13 are internet-only connected stations.
