Yeap, they are all showing up in the 5376 MIC-E entries (at the top of the table).

> Further, how is Firenet showing up in this list?   Firenet is essentially a clone of an APRS-IS server operating outside the APRS-IS (rather than a user transmitting to the APRS-IS).      Is someone gating data from the Firenet server into the APRS-IS,  making it appear as a virtual user?     If so, wouldn't the station doing the cross-gating show up instead as the "source"?    What's going on here??

Here are some of the APF* packets:

Does this mean something is replacing the on-air TOCALL with an APF* TOCALL? This particular call seems to flap between APRS and APFD09:
