Hi Dick,

Here is an example: I am interested only in DSTAR related traffic 
originating in prefix VE2/VA2. The filter I need is "p/VE2/VA2" AND 
"d/DSTAR". If I specify "p/VE2/VA2 d/DSTAR" I get ALL traffic in my area 
plus all DSTAR traffic worldwide. Designing a exclusion filter to exclude 
all "d"'s expect DSTAR is impossible and by the same token it is 
impossible to design an exclusion filter to exclude everything except 
VE2/VA2. In both cases, there are just too many possibilities even with 
wildcards.
