On http://www.aprs-is.net/IGateDetails.aspx it states:

> IGates must use the 3rd-party format on RF of

> packet data

Does that literally mean >APRS as the ToCall on the RF-transmitted 
packet, or is it acceptable for the gating software to supply it's own 
application identifier ToCall since it is actually the transmitting 
station's software that created the 3rd party wrapper?
