[aprssig] Sigh...

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.

Thanks you.
