>> qAS - Packet was received from another server or generated by this server. The latter case would be for a beacon generated by the server. Due to the virtual nature of APRS-IS, use of beacon packets by servers is strongly discouraged. The callSSID following the qAS is the login or IP address of the first identifiable server (see algorithm).
> Because the packet didn't come from RF (the TCPIP* in the path), the APRS-IS server believes that VK4TEC (the authenticated callsign of the APRS-IS connection login) is a server servicing other stations. Hence the qAS added to the packet.
