[aprssig] Polite to TX-igate weather warnings?

What? You're saying you can't connect an igate to a Firenet server and gate
messages between Firenet and RF? The default for a bidirectional igate is
to gate messages to RF for any stations heard recently on RF there.

I would expect you could still do that -and- choose to send weather alerts
through that were of interest for that area. Not so?

Are you saying that a Firenet server can only ACCEPT packets from others
but can't send to an igate which sends to RF?
