I had assumed most people were using the aprs-deviceid database over the
tocalls.txt file, so I hadn't pushed for updates since the allocation
itself is correct. This is the current listing in Hessu's database:
- tocall: APRX??
vendor: Kenneth W. Finnegan, W6KWF
You are correct though. It should be described as a "Digipeater/I-gate"
