OK I have removed all but 5 of our most reliable servers from the
rotate.aprs2.net list. The TTL is set to 15 minutes, so you all should
be able to do some more testing here soon. Please report any further
problems with the rotate.aprs2.net address - I do appreciate the
notifications. I didn't see anything that looked wrong in the zone file
when I checked it just now, but let's see if anything changes with fewer
addresses in the loop. If it ends up working better for all of you,
I'll add some more and we'll see if there is a threshold of the number
of addresses that your client software likes or dislikes.
