sorry my mistake. was talking about APRX. I really do not understand why 
it's not possible to add a satellite option in the public release.

I mentioned APRSC as this is going to be my method to bypass the 
"problem". Running a local APRSC with no uplink, connect APRX and using 
a third party software to filter out local stations and then gate/insert 
to the regular APRS-IS network.

There are so many misconfigured digipeaters and probably also aprx and 
other igate software. Adding a satgate function is not going to break 
anything if some user activates this even if he should't. Just make it 
hard to activate this function ;-)
