It's not in APRServe.txt.  It's an obscure entry in the program settings 
that looks somewhat like a Windows Registry edit. 

 From the APRSplus menu bar, pull down  "SETUP" and click on "SETTINGS" . 

In the resulting tree window, click on the "+" sign next to "INTERNET" 
to expand the "sub-directory".

Double-click  the line "Filter=" to get an edit box where you can enter 
any standard filter port setting string.

In mine, I have entered:  

      filter  m/250 -p/CW     

[ This shows all stations within about 160 miles (remember the distance 
is in kilometers,  not miles!) and EXCLUDES the Citizens Weather 
stations that clutter the map so much.  ]
