Re: Earthquakes

s//Q is the proper symbol.  I added that to my filter and haven't gotten flooded with BrandMeister but DO have quakes showing up.  A quick test filer shows the following source of earthquake symbols as well:

Interesting that they also show up on the APRS-IS, so YM2UDM must be injecting them into the main network.  Or not using the "firenet-only" port on a firenet server.

Checking these object locations puts them around the Mediterranean.

See and for name-searchable lists of symbols.  Or for a more verbose description.

I think \Q is the default symbol for BrandMeister.

Ok, if you have Lightning already displayed, that means you're connected to firenet.  So the only thing you need to add is s//Q which is the symbol for Earthquakes.  This gets appended to your Config / General / Additional Filter setting.  The s is a symbol filter, the nothing between the two slashes means nothing selected from the primary symbol table and the final Q is the earthquake symbol from the alternate table.

Living on the sand in Florida, it's been a long time since I was curious about the earthquakes!  Maybe I'll add it to my test APRSISMO instance which is drawing from firenet and is otherwise (relatively) uncluttered.
