That's correct. UI-View doesn't do any q-Construct mucking. It's
all done on the APRS-IS.


Like Gerhard mentioned, there is an option to show the Internet entry
callsign, which should of course be enabled. The "Internet entry point"
tag is ",I" but it could (but shouldn't be) edited. From the help...

   Show Inet entry point callsign - If this option is checked, then
   the IGATE's callsign is inserted in all frames passed to the
   Internet servers. It is inserted as an extra digi, and is suffixed
   with the text specified in Inet entry point tag. Note - this option
   can be set via 'Insert station callsign' in  the 'APRS Server
   Setup' dialogue.

  An example:- [OLD STYLE PATH SHOWN]
  G4IDE's IGATE hears this frame -

  If Show Inet entry point callsign is checked, the frame header is
  altered before the frame is passed to an internet server:-
