A SatGate is normally a one-way IGate. In other words, SatGates
normally do not transmit, only receive.

I would recommend javAPRSSrvr with javAPRSIGate. It is stable and can
act as a unidirectional IGate. The Alinco would simply need to be tuned
to the satellite downlink frequency, the TNC connected to your Linux box
running with ax25 kernel support configured, and
javAPRSSrvr/javAPRSIGate connected to APRS-IS.
Hope this helps.
