No, the APRS IS and findU are deliberately not filtering based on
altnet. If they were, then no one using an altnet would be able to
use them. If you are using an APRS client with the APRS IS, then the
altnet filtering will occur at the client. However, two people using
an altnet will also be able to use the APRS IS as a tranparent
transport medium. findU saves everything...
