[OZAPRS] Adelaide IGate Output Rules

By definition all Igates are supposed to Gate messages to RF for local 
stations. In Adelaide this is the case with both Igates.
The Igates do this by keeping a list of Local (RF) heard stations. So if 
your trying to send a message to Matt 5ZM-9 on his D700 in the car it will 
get gated out to RF provided he has been heard recently. Tyopically recently 
means 30mins or less.

Thats basically how it works without getting into deeper discussions. It 
also does not matter if your logged into a server in EU with your Android or 
whatever client. The Tier2 servers share traffic in this case across with 
the vk/zl servers.
It may be easier however if you use a server login from VK/ZL while your 
over in EU.
Might I sugest rotate.aprs.au as your server of choice.
