[aprssig] APRS-IS: frames bypassing server filter

Per http://www.aprs-is.net/q.aspx the only client-generated q codes are qAR, qAO, qAZ, and qAI.  Also, per www.aprs-is.net, the only modification allowed for packets gated to APRS-IS from RF is the addition of q construct (qAR or qAO) and IGate callsign to the received path.

Hope that helps.  The above referenced page also discusses what the server can add/replace in the q construct.

Interesting. Once I finally found a Tier2 server that supported UDP-Submit, my packets got through, but the ",qAO,mycallsign" I put in the submissions was replaced with ",qAU,T2EDM" (T2EDM being the Tier2 server I was using). Makes sense, but should I have specified that in the first place? 

Actually, how much _should_ be specified in the digipeat path for a UDP submission?
