I was referring to the non-dupe-filtered data Lynn collects from his
APRSIS32 software. This provides a much better picture than the
dupe-filtered APRS-IS feed. I hadn't heard that he'd made this data
public, if that's what you meant.

I publish non-dupe-filtered TNC logs for a digipeater/igate I help
admin. This data is useful to anyone in the Seattle area. It's my
understanding that Lynn essentially has logs like this for every
region with an APRSIS32 igate.

We're working very hard to expand IP data coverage to these sites via
5.8 GHz microwave. I'd be very happy if every digipeater in the state
was also an igate. Zero-hop messaging would be substantially more
reliable than what we have now. Here's a link to the project:
