Any way to block object or sender?

Look at the ToCall of the DSTAR stations and use a -u/ filter to knock them out.

If you provide a few example DSTAR station IDs, I can be more specific.

Thanks Lynn. Here are some of the D-Star stations in my area.
KJ4DDM-B  KJ4DDM B
KJ4AAB-B   KJ4AAB B
AD4DZ-B     AD4DZ B

Thanks again for your quick reply.

KJ4DDM-B>APDG02,TCPIP*
KJ4DDM-S>APDG01,TCPIP*,qAC,KJ4DDM-GS:;KJ4DDM B *
KJ4AAB-B>APDG02,TCPIP*
KJ4AAB-S>APDG01,TCPIP*,qAC,KJ4AAB-GS:;KJ4AAB B *
AD4DZ-N>APDG03,TCPIP* (That's the only AD4DZ*)

So, add a -u/APDG* to your Additional Filter and these stations should no longer be passed to you from the APRS-IS.  And in fact, no DSTAR stations of any version should be passed.

Lynn,
  Here is a copy of my error file attempting to block DSTAR stations from showing on my map.
 Are there any other options you can suggest I try?  Am I missing something in the format? I
 appreciate your help.

The symbol filter is not an easy one to use.  Arnold, KQ6DI, has the right approach with the unproto filter which I also suggested back on 7/30. 

-u/APBM*/APDG*/APWL*/APJI*

If you wanted to block the D overlay on the a alternate table, the syntax would be:

-s//a/D

The full description from http://www.aprs-is.net/javAPRSFilter.aspx is:

s/pri/alt/over Symbol filter pri = symbols in primary table (| => /)
alt = symbols in alternate table (| => /)
over = overlay character (case sensitive)
For example:
s/->     This will pass all House and Car symbols (primary table)
s//#     This will pass all Digi with or without overlay
s//#/T   This will pass all Digi with overlay of capital "T"

And remember that any filter term can be prefixed with a minus (-) to block packets matching that filter.
