The master APRS symbol list has shown it that way for nearly a
decade. It also allows for an overlay R for receive-only
Igates, but I personally would prefer that all Igates where
practical be 2-way because that is their function, and is
fundamental for the APRS messaging system to work.
The TCPIP symbol most people seem to use was intended for
TCPIP-over-ax25 packet networks.
