I'm sure this post will be followed up with one explaining what a
moron I am, but there appears to be a problem with at least weather
data fed into arizona.aprs2.net. A number of people have complained
today that their wx data stopped appearing on findU, all were
successfully connected to arizona.aprs2.net and receiving no errors.
Investigating, I find that arizona is connected to tier 2 core, and
that is connected to the real core (as they have designed their
system this appears correct), but the weather packets are not being
forwarded. Three of these people switched to using rotate.aprs.net
and had the problem disappear.
I am unable to investigate further, the findU stream test feature
(http://www.findu.com/stream/) is unable to query arizona.aprs2.net
as apparently all unfiltered ports have been blocked. I cannot tell
if this just weather data from arizona.aprs2.net missing, all
arizona.aprs2.net data missing, data from all the T2 servers, or some
other subset of data missing.
Hopefully the T2 guys will find and correct the problem soon, in the
interim if you are using Tier 2 and find any data missing on findU,
please try connecting directly to the core (rotate.aprs.net) before
you email me about problems with findU.
