[aprssig] Firenet on ahubwest?

What you are seeing is a result of the absolute mess that was caused by 
the fourth.aprs.net domain being transferred to first, then back to 
fourth, then fourth becoming a firenet server.  arizona.aprs2.net was 
connected to "fourth" for a time yesterday after it had changed to a 
firenet server.  This is how the data appeared on the "main" APRS-IS.  
fourth has been removed from the Tier 2 outbounds and thus hopefully 
this situation will be resolved.  There has been no firenet data present 
on the "main" APRS-IS for about 24 hours now.

I would suggest better communication among the core sysops before 
changes are made and domain names are swapped.
