Need to modify APRSC and/or APRX for this. And this is also going to 
require gating the data from the SGATEAPRS-IS to regularAPRS-IS.

A simple toggle function in APRSC/APRS to be an SGATE would be great.

I could host a SGATE but need a proper domainname as most sgate, satgate 
domains are occupied.
Also a modified APRX/APRSC.

I have to turn off my gate when local users want to operate the 
satellite. Now they don't bother using the satellites a they get false 
positive on the aprs-is net.
In my area if i turn it off they wont reach another igate. Even if they 
don't get digipeated by the satellite they are gated to aprs-is.

Why is this so important? Regarding ISS we have only a small window to 
beacon compared to europe and other places. Also the terrain with high 
mountains we can reach a satellite but not hear the digipeated package. 
Reaching a IGATE you can always confirm it later on.

I could probably filter out LA/LB/LC/LD/LE stations heard direct but 
then other callsigns is gated.
