Thanks for the information on log data, very helpful.
"You're offline again..." no just another self inflicted wound. Was searching around yesterday for a symbol to use for home station that was just an iGate. Didn't find one in APRSIS ( is there one ??) , but read that such a station should have an SSID of -0. So I changed it (bad idea) -- as of this morning have changed back to kc2nyu-1. From all indications here, station has been staying on air without a shutdown.
Thanks & 73
