Message repeating endlessly K8PNW-9

R. Patrick Ryan

Here is an interesting issue with a TM-D710 mobile user who has an APRS message that he tried to send, but this or a partial message has repeated >1000 times.
Tried to send an APRS one-line to this mobile, but no change.
Maybe he will get this email, but wondered if this group has seen this before?

Two things to always remember if you are an APRS user: 
1. add your email address to your comment/beacon status
2. Power cycle your APRS radio periodically to clear buffers, like this stuck message.

Look at the raw packets:

That looks like a seriously misconfigured radio and some legacy digipeaters around that location.
