Ah!  One of the main reasons why Tier 2 was created!  Pete's link below 
has some of the Tier 2 servers available listed, but for a more complete 
list, visit www.aprs2.net.  We also have a UI-View type list created for 
easy download.  Use the URL: france.aprs2.net/APRServe2.txt - though I 
agree with Pete that we should all be creating our own server lists for 
our own needs.

It should also be pointed out that round-robin DNS does not account for 
a server becoming suddenly unavailable.  If a server in the list becomes 
unavailable, until the DNS zone file is updated and all of the caching 
is reset, that server's IP will still be issued on the pseudo-random 
basis.  There is rotate.aprs.net and there is also rotate.aprs2.net, but 
I recommend not using them for any reason.
