Using a SSID of -63 sounds like a good idea. I've changed my igate to 
G4HYG-63 and it connects to the APRS-IS OK and appears on Xastir, 
APRSIS32 and UI-View.

Regarding 10m I'm sure that it would make an ideal propagation beacon 
net. All that's needed is a suitable frequency. What frequency do you
