This is much more obscure than I thought.
Has: "...since just like in APRS, a message to the root call will be accepted

Selecting this option will enable reception and display of any message
addressed to your callsign regardless of the SSID the message is sent to.
I suspect that is just putting the IGate's root callsign into the "buddy
list" at the server subscription filter. Which, of course, is a perfectly
