Re: Fun with filters (Really just some questions)
See http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/doc:automatic-filters for a full description of APRSIS32 automatic filters.
The m/ and r/ filters are automatic, but the 9 comes from your Configure / General / Range which is specified in 1/10 miles, but goes out in the filter as kilometers.
Rest easy, the filter only applies to what the APRS-IS will be sending to you, not what you will be gating to the APRS-IS. APRSIS32 adheres to the IGate specification at http://www.aprs-is.net/IGateDetails.aspx, specifically:
Note that there is no provision for "black-listing" stations. If you copy it on an RF-type port and none of the above conditions are true, then the packet will be gated to the APRS-IS. Assuming, of course, that you have the appropriate enables on both the RF and APRS-IS port.

Ok, I have used filters in Direwolf but am trying it in aprsis32 for the first time. I entered two -b filters for two calls signs that involve pilots just swamping the area almost daily with 30 second beacon rates and WIDE1-1, WIDE2-1 paths. I entered them in the Configure>General>add filters box. I wish to ignore these guys and not gate them in either direction.
