  Yup.
   While it's still displayed on my screen, the last packet seen was 
at 10:06 this morning.  So it appears the station is no longer 
broadcasting this object, or if they are, they've moved it outside my 
filter window.
   Another anomaly:  I can see it on my one workstation ('angel') which is 
connected to the APRS-IS via rotate.aprs.net with filter m/150.  However, 
on my other workstation ('jot'), which is connected to indiana.aprs2.net 
with filter a/43/-85.1/42/-83.4, it doesn't display, because it's just 
slightly outside of my filter range.
