The APRS internet system (IS) should never be used to "ascertain" reception
statistics, since it only captures the first copy of any packet heard by
any number of IGates.  The only way to improve your IGate's "appearance" on
the APRS-IS is to disconnect everyone else in your country.   (If I
understood your question...)  Bob
