The only problem with an RX only Igate is that it KILLS return messaging !!!

Hi All, 
I've just set up an RX-Only (with ident) IGate in South West Melbourne
(after consulting my co-ordinator) as I was seeing quite a lot of traffic
not making it in to the existing IGates in Melbourne either due to traffic
congestion, or a mobile station not making it into a Digi. 
Would an RX IGate (with ident) suffice to fill this black hole? It helps
improve the RF -> APRS-IS coverage without adding unnecessary traffic to the
RF network? The ident on my IGate is set to every 20 minutes. 
Are you trying to increate RF coverage, or RF -> APRS-IS coverage?
