[aprssig] Polite to TX-igate weather warnings?

Some time ago (1 or 2 years) and not knowing any better, I had my igate connected to a firenet server and everything seamed to work except messaging. Firenet apparently doesn't send messages back to igates so that they can in turn be send out to RF. There really isn't a good solution that I have found.

Note also that FireNet does not support IGates (port 14580 is not an IGate capable port) and that is intentional so RF does not get overloaded (FireNet has a massive number of objects and messages that are not seen on APRS-IS).
