I think I have a rough understanding of it now.... ;-)  It sounds like the 
iGate is the issue.

Thanks for the help!

The internet takes only the FIRST copy of a packet.  No matter how many 
times your station digipeats it, if it is not the first packet heard by an 
IGate, then you won't see your copies.
