[aprssig] rotate.aprs2.net issue?

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.

Thanks!
