A little behind what you're seeing.

Traccar is running as a background service on my Android to do automatic reporting from my phone. 
( See that WF5X in the packet? That's me. )

Sometime over the course of the last few weeks, my work's internet access via the Guess Wireless connection has started to not find the traccar server.
Traccar stores up the unsuccessful position reports when network is unavailable and then dumps them en masse when a network connection is restored.
So, once it finally gets a connection to the server, it floods them out. 

I have found a way to keep the connection at work more stable, but it requires me to remember to start my VPN on my phone. 
Since I'm human, I forget sometimes, and then there's a flood when I remember to send start the VPN. 

MICON tactical calls are used by those of us associated with the multi-county reporting network used for Skywarn reporting to the NWS office for Detroit/Pontiac.
We run 90 sec reporting via traccar, which is autoforwarded to APRS-IS.  90 sec reports via APRS-IS is not really excessive, unless there's an unknown network connection loss, and the subsequent flood when it's restored. 

I'm trying to deal with the issue as best as I can with the limitations that my work has on their guess wireless access. 

But, to answer your question, yes, there is away to block them  -b/MICON*

In the last week or so I saw complaints about what is showing up in the ticker of stations showing up, I thought I would add what I see a lot of, and of course doing a "whois" doesn't show me who it is. I see a lot of MICON-1, MICON-42, etc. I guess I should have paid more attention what was being said, but since basically the only thing I have done is set my pass code and location, and who I track...

I guess my question is, is there a filter that can block anything that has "MICON" in it from showing up? Regardless of whether it has a "-1", or "-2" or "-42". Thanks and I apologize in advance for asking the same question over again so quickly, most of that went over my head because of a lack of knowledge and understanding of what was happening. If this program was a "appliance" like what the "old hams" said would happen with the CW drop back a while ago, I would have to say guilty on both counts.

Thanks,
Dave N8PU

PS, sorry about the poor picture quality of the second picture, I couldn't get a screen capture of it with my computer so I had to take a picture of it with my cell phone camera.

PPS, I tried to add a filter to not show anything with MICON in it and obviously was missing something important.

I believe you're asking about either 18 or 19. The one closer to the map gives you station count and age configuration information and the one to the outside right gives you battery status.

Re: APRS

Rob Giuliano
 

Even though you got confused, I'd still look at DireWolf.
Ask questions on here and/or on their support group.  From my experience, both have good support.

In the APRSis32 menu choose
  >Configure
    >Ports
         >New Port ...
In the popup:
For >Type (combo box) choose AGW
  Name it what you like (say maybe 'DireWolf')

Next popup is port type:  TCP/IP

Next popup is TCP configuration:  localhost (if on the same computer, or you will have to give an IP or hostname)
   Port: 8000

For the DireWolf side, the biggest issue is the sound card identification.
   I typically run DireWolf to see the options (they are numbered).
   Then close direwolf and  open direwolf.conf
   Change the ADEVICE # # to match your computer (input # then Output #)
    ACHANNELS 1        for mono mic input
    MYCALL                 

You should be able to leave everything else as the defaults.
NOTE: scroll down and make sure AGWPORT 8000 is not commented out

If you have issues, post again, put include the DireWolf version and maybe the response from DireWolf on your sound card(s).

I will add:

You mention "monitoring" APRS, so if you are looking at receive only, A simple RTL2832U Software Defined Radio dongle will work great for the radio receiver, but as an IGATE, it is recommended that your station have TX capability.

To add TX:
  If your radio does not have VOX, you will need a PTT circuit in order to get you radio to transmit.
  There are many options, but search the internet to see what those many options are, and find one that you can use.

TX ease is probably the the only thing the Vintage 1980s TNC has that is "a little extra work" when using a PC and sound card.

Re: APRS

Download "soundmodem100.zip" from here: http://uz7.ho.ua/packetradio.htm .  After you install it, change its device settings to see your computer's soundcard, and make sure "AGWPE Server Port" is enabled and set to 8000.

Go to APRSis32settings and create a new port as Type "AGW".  Give it a name like SoundModem or whatever you'd like.  Set its TCP Configuration to IP 127.0.0.1 and Port 8000.  Run an audio cable from the radio's speaker-out to the line-in or mic jack of the soundcard.

If there's any conventional packet activity in your area (or HF packet) and you'd like to try it, download EasyTerm from the same website.  It's a packet terminal program that works with the SoundModem TNC, for connecting to nodes, BBS's, etc.
