And if the -IS-only station sends a message to anyone through your 
IGate, then the default IGate support will followup with a "free" 
position packet for the originating (-IS-only) station.  You won't know 
he's there via RF until he triggers something to go out an IGate, but 
after that, he'll have a position.

PS.  The "free" position after message is one of the extended IGate 
features that will be coming in a future release of APRSISCE/32.  
Currently only the message is gated from -IS to RF.
