Re: “Note that you should NOT connect an
IGate to firenet. “
My mind just isn’t what it used to be. You
just reminded me WHY I started running separate instances, one
for Amateur Radio APRS, on standard APRS tier 2 servers, and a
second instance for weather watching on firenet. You also
get weather advisories AND warnings on firenet.
I set this all up in 2016, so I think I
will copy parts of your message and put it in a file for
future reference. My mind just isn’t what it used to be, or
did I mention that already.

b/KJ4ERJ-15 will get you my flying satellites as will
o/ISS*/PSAT* (the * is required as they have trailing spaces.
This should work on both APRS-IS and firenet.
b/KJ4ERJ-LS will get you the individual strikes as well as
the strike zones as well o/LS-*/SZ-*. If you only want the
strike zones (a lot fewer objects, but nearly as informative),
just use o/SZ-*. This only works on firenet. The KJ4ERJ-15
for lightning data is obsolete and should be ignored.
Note that you should NOT connect an IGate to firenet. I've
been told that firenet's 14580 ports are not internally
flagged as "IGate" ports, so they will NOT remember what
stations you've gated and therefore you will not receive
messages addressed to those stations nor courtesy posits from
the originators of those messages.
If I thought about it hard enough, I could probably come up
with a combination of APRSIS32 instances to pull off gating
nearby strikezone objects from the -IS to RF without actually
using firenet as the IGate connection, but given their update
frequency during a storm, I really don't think you'd ever want
to actually do this.

Thanks for the reminder, Fred. I had
forgotten about Lynns lightning server. I noticed that I
had -b/KJ4ERJ-LS in my filters which I changed to
b/KJ4ERJ-LS, and it works! Now I remember that I used the
“-“ to turn the filter off without having to take it clear
out of the Configure menu. That keeps it handy so I can
turn lightning on or off without having to look it up.
I found an old message (#29727 dated
10/22/16 in groups.io) that says to, “…specify a filter of
b/KJ4ERJ-15 or o/LS*…”, but that may be old info. I haven’t
tried either of them recently:
Lynn does of great job of keeping me from
hanging out in bars all night 😜.
I do almost
the same thing. I also display earthquakes and lightning!
it! It is ready!
Yes! I've had 2 instances running most
of the day...One for "normal" APRS traffic (RF & IS),
and a second one for NWS traffic on firenet for weather
(tornado) watching. No problems so far.
I love the program! Thank

[APRSISCE] Ready for Release?
So, according to the second
("Upgrades") telemetry graph for KJ4ERJ at
aprs.fi, it appears that the upgrades are slowing down. So
question is: For those of you running the latest
is it ready to be pushed out as the first General release
