Hi Kenny,
I did see your screenshot showing G4MKI-3.
Have only just got in having taken the missus to the hairdressers and had a haircut myself.
Before I went out I noticed that my weather beacon and G4MKI-5 were missing from the map, the old pc needed a reboot but I didnt have time to do it them, so have just done it. All ok now.

Thanks Kenny,
I did think that I may have tried to create a link rather than insert an image.
Your suggestions will be put into practice a little later in the day...off to Whitstable shortly to collect the missus. Very Happy

Hi Kenny,
I discovered that G4MKI-5 was not running an hour or two ago. The PCI card (dual COM) had decided to crash Windows on my ancient PC, so have removed it and rebooted...seems OK now.

Hi Kenny,
I found I could not block stations I was receiving via IS. I was going to look at my ISFilter in APRSERVE to see if I could work out how to do it with multiple callsigns, but that might be a problem. You are in a better position than I am to do that with T2England, but you
wont be able to put blocks in all T2 servers.
I recently switched from Amsterdsm to England and have not changed my IS filter setting yet..It will be on your server against MB7UEK. For the moment, the co=ordinates I am using are roughly from the Wash to Nottingham in the North and the Channel to the South, ..a square.
73,
Duncan

Kenny,
I remember looking at the info on filtering at aprs2.net, to set up local filtering so that I did not receive stations too far away. I also remember that there were a number of examples, on different aspects of filtering, in the document I read, but at the time I was only concerned with latitude and longitude. From memory it was possible to block one or two stations but not a long string. A long string could raise software timing issues.
At the end of the day we may have to rely on Ofcom to sort it as the problem is too big for us to handle...and by the same token, should not put our NoV at risk.
Steve may/may not provide advice on the issue, although I doubt he has given it any thought.

Kenny,
I must admit that I am surprised that Ofcom is apparently taking no action against expired NoVs of any flavour. This must pose a potential security problem. How do we know that the individual who applied for the NoV in the first place is the person now running the station..it could be anyone, although I admit that it is unlikely.
More seriously, we cannot know which non-UK calls entering via IS are legitimate. Presumably, GCHQ has a grip on this.
What you are doing is the only way that I can see you can protect yourself and your users...block them from IS. Hopefully, they will get the message, or promptly move on to another aprs2.net server.

re:AIS
I was using my discone antenna and old Realistic scanner for AIS reception. It even has a demodulator tap on it and works very well.
My location is not that much closer to the sea than yours, but there is a lot of traffic in the Thames Estuary within 15 miles of me.
If you use Shipplotter software you can receive an internet feed from the COAA server. I produced the sample maps of Rotterdam, Amsterdam and the Dover Strait that way.
At the moment my AIS gear is tied up doing other things.
I used to get a Christmas Card every year from a brokerage firm in the Bahamas, who were obviously watching ships in which they had an interest, coming round to Tilbury.

APRS Tier 2 Network Homepage

Kenny,
There is a different version of the User Defined Filter Guide at the above site, possibly an earlier version, which provides a little information about Exclusions..Note #14.
Apparently you create an exclusion by placing a - minus sign, at the beginning of the filter definition. My understanding is that by placing - in front of my filter, it would not pass anything within the defined area, but would pass all traffic outside it. You can also string filters together. Mine is an area filter, and I could have a number of filters for different areas. You can also apply the exclusion to all of the other filter type #1 to #13
I might have a play with the filter I am using on G4MKI-3, which connects to a different aprs2.net server, to create a 50m square close to me and a second 50m square around you.
Bearing in mind the lat/long is in decimal format, creating much smaller areas, around an offending callsign may be possible.

Filter String
f/MB7UFO/50 a/51.16/-4.45/50.49/-4.40 u/APRS-0 f/G4MKI-3/50 a/52.900/-1.566/50.566/1.763 u/APRS-0

GB3CH/7 is probably outside the defined square, but looking at his location, you may be rxing him direct.
I wonder what would happen if I were to add -f/G3LDI-8, as his station falls within the area defined by f/G4MKI-3.......it may not be necessary to state his lon/lat

Duncan
The old User Defined Filter Guide is no longer used.
Gerhard F5VAG send me an updated copy early last year of the new one which i have on the Web page.

GB3CH is the 70cms Repeater (Carringdon Hill ) near Liskeard
i dont hear it direct theres a big hill in the way,but if i go down the road about
half a mile its S9.

Kenny,
I didnt look that closely at the location of the square boundaries I set around you but GB3CH looked to be on Bodmin Moor or thereabouts.
Could be via a digi or up and down with condx.
Shame about the updated filter info...looks as though the exclusion section has been removed.
I am running G4MKI-3 on T2LONDON to spread the load a bit, but if you dont mind I could move it to T2ENGLAND..
GB3CH has been replaced by GB3JL/2 on the map at the moment, maybe the signal paths are changing with condx, which might be problematic trying to set a local area filter.

It is getting very windy here too.
I have just moved the northern boundary on my G4MKI-3 map down to Cambridge which has excluded all but 2 calls in Norfolk and for the moment G3LDI is missing.
I have also put the link back on my website to include G4MKI-3 web pages.
Incidentally, the 70cms repeaters south of you in the Plymouth area are APRS OBJECTS according to G4MKI-3.
