Validation number for the UI-View APRS Software information.
Access to the internet APRS servers is controlled with validation numbers. Without a validation number, you can send data to the server,
which can be seen by other directly connected stations, but your data will not be allowed to pass through IGATEs, and your own system
cannot act as an IGATE.

You can see if the other station have a Validation number setup ok.
