messaging issue is.  IGates are either using purely distance to determine
what stations will receive messages, or they if they are using hop count
they are still relying on position packets one way or another.​

​ Sending messages with suggested changes to IS server connections without
clarifying which problem you're trying to solve just muddies the waters or
as Kenneth said, sends things "off in the weeds".  Number 3 and 4 are not
specific enough to identify what the potential issues are in order to look
for a solution.  Based on previous posts, #4 = "I don't like the fact that
the IS server sends me stations that are further away than I want to see
and not in my filter, and my IGate software displays them on the map when I
don't want them displayed there".
