That's one of the main reasons I try now to post on the APRSSIG -- people want to see roadblocks and not solutions.

We have fairly standardized digi setups, why not a standardized .ini file?  It requires NO new programs and solves the whole issue.

Except that:

1)      The filter will put stuff on the local map.  It won't, by default, 
transmit this stuff on RF though you could tweak igate.ini .    Further, you 
would have to filter out position-less stuff like NWS warnings, bulletins, etc.

2)      Dozens of igate stations along the itinerant mobile's route would have 
to do this to achieve what the original poster wanted -- to make his 
Internet-based mobile appear on local RF in one town after another as he 
travels through different areas.
