[aprssig] Help explaining packets

Here's what UIView's help info in the .ini says for configuring the Igate.
My setup is at the default 0 so *only* local traffic (e.g., to stations
heard direct) should be gated.

;MAX_DIGIS_FOR_LOCAL specifies how many digis a frame
;can pass through and the sender still be regarded as a
;local station. The default of 0 means that only
;stations heard direct are regarded as local. You can
;effectively disable the checking by putting any number
;greater than eight, because no AX25 frame should ever
;pass through more than eight digis.

I believe that W0SNJ is about 35 miles from me and as I have a relatively
high elevation above average terrain so my station probably does hear him
directly from time to time.

Hi Ken,

Can you see if you are hearing W0SNJ (I know he is not on your local
list)?  If you are, this would answer the question about whether UI-View
checks for the sending station on RF.  If not, we still won't know for
sure but it would explain why your station is gating his packets to RF.

	That is correct.  I am using UIView32 without any changes to the
I-gate/RF function.  It is set to gate to RF only those packets for
stations heard directly on RF.   For example, my current local list
includes W2MER, the pinged station in question:
