As far as I can see OH2MQK software is a Linux program called APRX and has a
designated tocall of APRXxx from http://wiki.ham.fi/Aprx.en it seems it was
RX only igate software, but now extended to TX and digipeating, a brief look
at the manual leads me to believe it's a configuration error.
Unless it's really need I don't plan to load the software and figure out the

Spot-checking some of the many stations beaconing the APRSIS> telemetry 

KD8IAY beacons both RXTLM-3 w/Telemetry and APRX22 which is "APRXxx <39 
for OH2MQK's RX-igate".

CRVLS-1, VE6KGA-1,YO6KSU-10, and HB9ONO-5 are all the same.

LA2YMA-10 is RXTLM-2 w/Telemetry and APND14 which is "APNDxx  DIGI_NED"

So, it seems more likely that it's OH2MQK's RX-igate software, whatever 
that is.
