Not only that, but ALL packets from that Igate are plastering
the APRS network all over the place.  It is excedingly rare for
an Igate to need to do this.

The recommended hops for Igates are ONE HOP unless there are no
other Igates at all other surrounding digis going out 2 hops in
all directions.
