I am not sure how you do it in APRS+, but in uiview you would send the
server "filter m/1700" without the quotes. It needs to see the word
filter. You can also connect to the 14580 server without trying to send
anything with the log on text, but then send a message to SERVER with
the message being, FILTER M/1700 and that should work also.
